    Fr. Scott Donahue

    There are priests that should never have taken the vows and priests that are what our parishioners call "people priests" - they are helpful and friendly to all. One of the latter is Father {Louis} Scott Donahue. He is not only the CEO of Mercy Home for Boys and Girls, but he is...

    I Found the Pearl of Great Price...

    My journey towards traditional Catholicism began in 2001. I was then very active in our church being a member of the choir and a youth minister for Singles for Christ. One day as I was browsing our huge collection of novena booklets, I found a dusty old prayer booklet that...

    I believe, accept and follow the traditional

    teaching of the Catholic Church and try to follow them in my life. I do not believe that the Church should soften, simplify or change it's teachings to attract or retain members for whom it's teachings are too difficult or unpalatable to reconcile with a modern secular...

    100% traditional, I love the Latin Tridentine

    Mass which I have been blessed growing up going to. I believe everything the Church has traditionally taught for centuries including that there is no salvation outside the Church. Call me weird or radical if you want, but this is my faith and I'm not about to give it up.

    I Attend The Paul VI Mass

    I can't get to a Tridentine Mass, but I really want to go. I try to hint to people in my parish about restoring the Tridentine Mass, but it doesn't really get a favorable response. They like having the priest facing the people and not having to dress up or wear a head covering...

    EF Mass

    For me the EF Mass is extremely important. I come away from the service feeling that I've really been to Mass and witnessed something truly spiritual and special. For me the most important part is the silence. We live such busy noisy lives nowadays that to come to Church and be...

    I Am Not a Rad-trad.

    I am fond of many of the traditions in the church which seem to not be upheld as important anymore, such as: receiving on the tongue frequent confession veiling the EF of the Mass That being said, I do attend the OF of the Mass more often than the EF, and...
