“Manifest fruits of the Mass of Ages”

Conference will showcase benefits of traditional Latin Mass to families

A one-day conference, "Applying the Fruits of the Extraordinary Rite to Family Life," is scheduled next month at Thomas Aquinas College in Santa Paula.

The event, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 10 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., is sponsored by Una Voce Ventura.

“The manifest fruits of the Mass of Ages can provide a solid foundation for the spiritual life of your family,” says an entry on the Una Voce Ventura website. “In this one-day conference, our two distinguished speakers will address what Catholic families can do and gain from a deeper appreciation of the traditional Latin Mass. Deep experience has shown that the reverence, solemnity, quiet and beauty of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman rite can produce rich spiritual growth and foster the formation of saints.”

Following registration, the conference will open with the hearing of confessions at 9 a.m., followed by a Mass in the Extraordinary Rite at 9:30 a.m. in Our Lady of the Most Holy Trinity Chapel.

At 11 a.m., Fr. James Fryar, a priest of the Fraternity of St. Peter, is scheduled to discuss the topic: “Place of the Holy Mass in Our Daily Lives – The importance of the Mass and the importance we should place in the Mass, and how we should live the Mass.”

After a lunch break, the conference is scheduled to resume at 1 p.m. with a talk by Dr. Thomas Kaiser, a tutor at Thomas Aquinas College, on the subject: “Instilling a Sense of the Sacred?-- The role of sensory experience in the sacramental life. Why our Lord instituted the sacraments as sensible signs to give grace and why the Church uses sensible signs in worship.”

Fr. Fryar returns at 2 p.m. to discuss: “Sacraments and Sacramentals -- How they are neglected in today’s society, and the place that they should hold in our families and our lives.”

Una Voce Ventura’s president, Leo Raab, will serve as the conference’s moderator and will introduce each speaker.

Cost of the event is $40 for individuals, $70 for married couples, and $35 for students. Pre-registration is required and seating is limited. For more information, call (805) 683-0196. To download a conference flyer and registration form, Click Here.
