Welcome to St. Rose of Lima Catholic Church in Quincy, IL. St. Rose was re-opened on November 9, 2008, to provide the Latin Mass for Catholics in Quincy and the surrounding area. Bishop George Lucas of the Springfield, Illinois, diocese appointed Fr. Arnaud Devillers of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter as chaplain. St. Rose is the first church in the Springfield diocese to resume the traditional Latin Mass since Pope Benedict the Sixteenth's Summorum Pontificum in 2007 ensured its availability.
Many thanks to all those who donated their time and talents at the soup dinner to make my trip to Peru possible. I would also like to thank our church friends and family for attending the soup dinner in helping support my going on this trip, and giving encouraging words of wisdom and guidance, which I received from everyone. The soup dinner was a great success, but there is still more work for me to do. I still am in need of additional support from our church families and friends to be able to make this trip possible. I still have to raise a total of one thousand three hundred dollars to reach my goal. I appreciate the time and effort of all whom helped or took the time to come and join us for the event. Thank you and may God bless you. If your family would still like to donate, it would be appreciated. Checks should be made payable to Mission Tradition. Please write SFX Mission on the memo line.
-- Yours in Christ, Gweneth M. Chandler
