2019 MSJB Christmas Newsletter. . .

THE WAR ON CHRISTMAS is a war on Christ. Therefore, we need good men willing to enter into the fray as spiritual knights in the court of Christ the King. Our little religious community was recently erected by our good bishop as a public association of the Faithful on September 5, 2019. Though small in size we pray that we may be strong in Faith. At this moment, our community has two priests, as well as two professed brothers in temporary vows and one novice. The two professed are presently engaged in their seminary studies. We pray that they will persevere in their studies and one day be ordained and join us in this war as part of the sacerdotal ranks as traditional priests. We also pray that more men may answer the call to the religious life and the holy priesthood and enter our community. But this great blessing of more men will require additional funds to educate them and prepare them for spiritual warfare. Please be generous as we seek to train and educate future priests.

“The company of those who believed were of one heart and soul"

(Acts 4:32).

The Dean of Lourdes, Abbe Peyramale, to St Bernadette:

“Ask the Lady Her name once more, and when we know Her name,

we will build Her a chapel. And it won’t be a little one, I tell you;

it will be a very big one.”

The Missionaries respond to the concerns surrounding the building of a Grotto in honor of Our Lady...

Help us build a Grotto for Our Lady...

Our Lady of Lourdes needs a Niche in the Wall

Due to the generosity of many benefactors, we have purchased (the mortgage for the church building was retired on Feb 9) and  refurbished a beautiful church under the patronage of Our Lady of Lourdes. Although there are still many things to be done in the church (e.g., restoring most of the stained glass windows, restoring the bell tower and bells, and refurbishing the kitchen), we now need to build the Blessed Mother of God a special cave or grotto that will call to mind that sacred apparition site in Lourdes, France. For how can one have a church dedicated to Our Lady of Lourdes without a Grotto? What a blessing it would be for future parishioners and passersby if they could pray not only in our chapel before the Tabernacle, but also visit an outdoor shrine with a niche for Our Lady... a sort of tabernacle on earth for the Blessed Mother. Thus, we have initiated the first phase of a new capital campaign to serve three ends: building the Grotto, to help us finish the work in the church as well as pay off and develop our new property (at 1111-1113 Amsterdam Road) to improve parking and provide additional housing for the Missionaries. If you want your donation to be used for the Grotto only, please indicate that along with the donation (e.g., writing "Grotto" in the memo line). Help Us Give Honor to the Highest Honor of Our Race.

Help the Fathers build something beautiful for Our Lord and His Mother.

Present & Future Expenditures: $800K.

2018 Income: $342K.

Although it is best to use a check, we do accept donations through paypal...
