Father William Jenkins

Our Lady of Peace is a Traditional Catholic Chapel, where only the Traditional Latin Mass is offered. This is the Tridentine rite, which is guaranteed Ex Cathedra as THE True Mass “in perpetuity”, and whose Canon was inviolate for over a thousand years before the sweeping changes of the Vatican II Council in the early 1960’s. The chapel is associated with the Society of St. Pius V – an organization of Traditional Catholic priests dedicated to the solidly established and unchangeable dogma of the Catholic Church as faithfully represented by the Traditional Latin Mass and the administration of the Traditional Sacraments. Only the rubrics of the Latin Rite Mass according to the Roman Missal (Missale Romanum) of 1954 are used, which precede the liturgical changes implemented in 1955 as well as the dramatic changes of the Vatican II Council and its “New Order”. Here, St. Paul’s admonition to hold firmly to tradition is taken seriously.

Visitors Are Always Welcome
You are most welcome and encouraged to attend Mass. If you are unfamiliar with the requirements of the Traditional sacraments, we only ask that you defer taking Holy Communion until you can confer with the priest regarding its reception. Also, out of respect for our Lord’s presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament, the faithful should dress modestly while assisting at Holy Mass.
