A web template was purchased today and work is beginning on a new website for the Infant of Prague Chapel in Liberty Township, Ohio.
Affiliated with the Confraternity of Ss. Peter & Paul, the chapel will open for regular Mass in summer of 2014. We look forward to seeing you there.
Legal Establishment of Chapel
May 30, 2013
We are currently working on two very important documents that will enable the Infant of Prague Chapel to open its doors.
The first is the establishment of our tax exempt status as a Non Profit Corporation, and the second, no less important, is the application for permanent immigrant status for our eventual pastor.
Visit by the Confraternity Chaplain
May 13, 2013
The Confratenity Chaplain Fr. Bernard Hall paid a short visit to the Infant of Prague Chapel this last weekend. During the visit he was able to offer Mass in the Chapel, and to meet with some of our potential future parishioners.
Infant of Prague Chapel
Established in 2012 by the Confraternity of Ss. Peter & Paul, the Chapel of the Infant of Prague provides a peaceful and harmonious setting for the Mass and the Divine Office, where Roman Catholics who recognize that things have not been going well with the Church since Vatican II can rediscover their traditional faith and values.
We have no interest in the polemics and never-ending divisions prevalent among so many who practice the traditional form of worship. Our aim is rather to provide a spiritual home for those fellow Catholics who seek to lay aside divisive trivialities and unite instead around the never-changing dogmas and moral values taught by Christ’s Church.
We therefore welcome to our chapel all those of good will, who, while they may vigorously hold their own opinions on matters yet undecided by the Church’s teaching authority, still recognize that other Catholics of similar good will may favor an alternative opinion. We support all attempts by those who confess the same faith and reject Modernism to try to find answers to the often vexing questions posed by the current situation in the Church. At the same time we reject any pretense of authority by elevating our conclusions to the level of “dogmas”.
This does not imply any weakness whatsoever in our defense of the actual dogmas and teachings of the Church which have been passed down to us undefiled since the time of the Apostles, and which have been defined and otherwise imposed as divinely revealed truth by the legitimate teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church. By these truths we live, and for these truths we are prepared to die.
We remain Roman Catholic, with our allegiance to the everlasting Rome of truth and tradition, resigned in these unhappy times in which we live to submit entirely to the unseen Will of God. In the absence of legitimate superiors, we count on God alone to bestow His blessings on our enterprises, and we look to the powerful protection and guidance of Christ the King, as manifested in the holy innocence of His infancy. For this reason we have recognized in the Holy Infant of Prague the supreme expression of this absolute power absolutely incorrupt. We have remembered His words and etched them on our hearts, that “Except ye become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” And we surrender our own will unto His, as with humble submission we call to mind the words of Isaiah the Prophet, who told of the day when “a little child shall lead them.”
