Ecclesiastical Latin Classes in Saint Louis - UPDATE

FROM THE BULLETIN of Saint Francis de Sales Oratory, in Saint Louis, Missouri, home of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest:

“Say your Pater, Ave, and Credo in Latin so as to join in the universal language of the Church.” - St. Francis de Sales

“The Roman Church has special obligations towards Latin, the splendid language of ancient Rome, and she must manifest them whenever the occasion presents itself.” -Pope John Paul II

If enough express interest in taking classes in Ecclesiastical Latin at the Oratory, a class can soon be formed, offered at a reasonable fee. Please contact Mr. Roche at the Rectory to leave your contact information.
Many people have expressed interest in taking classes in Ecclesiastical Latin, and a preliminary meeting will be held in the basement hall of Saint Francis de Sales Oratory on Sunday, March 2nd, 2008, at 1:00 p.m.  Classes to be taught by James Mooney.

Non tam praeclarum est scire Latine, quam turpe nescire.
It is not so much excellent to know Latin, as it is a shame not to know it.
— Cicero, Brutus xxxvii.140
