Welcome

At St. Benedict Traditional Roman Catholic Church, we celebrate only the traditional, pre-Vatican II, Latin Mass. The chapel is located on Highway 231 about 10 miles south of Huntsville, AL. We welcome everyone to worship Almighty God with us in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Click here for our theological position.


Announcements

ST. NICHOLAS VISIT TO THE CHILDREN
The annual visit of St. Nicholas to the little ones will take place after Mass on the 2nd Sunday of Advent, December 10. Parents, have your children be ready to tell St. Nicholas the good deeds they are doing to prepare their hearts for Jesus’ birthday!

ADVENT
Although not as strict as Lent, Advent is a penitential season. There is no mandatory fasting and abstinence most days of Advent, but let us voluntarily take upon ourselves works of penance and charity, so that we prepare in the proper spirit for the feast of the Nativity of Our Lord, instead of giving in, as worldlings do, to the dissipation and celebration of the “holiday season.” Be sure to have an Advent wreath in the home, lighting the candle(s) daily and saying the prayer for each week (a suitable time would be just before dinner). Parents of small children, be sure to have small crib or manger, where the children can place straws when they are extra good or make extra sacrifices. They will know that they are preparing a soft place for the Infant Jesus in their hearts

OUR LADY OF GUADALUPE
The faithful who devoutly visit an image of the Virgin Mother of God of Guadalupe exposed in some church or public oratory, on any of the five preceding Sundays before her feast (Dec. 12) can gain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions, i.e. Confession, Communion, prayer for the intentions of the Church (one Our Father, Hail Mary & Glory be).
