“I grew up listening to Lessons & Carols from Cambridge and that was Advent-Christmas for me. Then I moved to Rome and discovered Rorate Masses, the Novena of the Immaculate Conception with the Tota Pulchra, the Christmas Novena, the O Antiphons, the Aspiciens, the Rorate Coeli, the Alma Redemptoris Mater: that's Advent for me now. I am glad to see seminarians all over the United States doing Lessons & Carols, but are they learning our ancient Roman traditions alongside a 20th-century Anglican one?”
— Rev. Christopher Smith

A quote from a member of Saint Vitus Parish:

“How long did we wait? And now, at last, I can drive my wife and children to a regular Sunday Mass—week after week—and live the parish life with my friends who also feel the Latin Mass is our future. Thank you Archbishop and Fraternity!”   (Mr. José Moreno)

Archbishop José H. Gomez officially opened the Parish on 25 June 2018:
