Latin 'Novus Ordo' Mass
St. Mary of Victories Church is the only place in St. Louis where you'll find the Ordinary Form of the Mass (post Vatican 2) in Latin with Gregorian Chant with lots of traditional options. The readings, homily, and prayers of the faithful are in English. The rest is in Latin which is translated for the faithful in a small booklet and a one page sheet. The Gregorian Chant is sung by St. Mary of Victories' own schola.
We hope you can join us sometime soon for this great traditional experience. Find out more about our Latin Ordinary Form liturgy here.
First Sundays, there is a pot-lunch brunch following Mass, except in the Summertime. The brunch takes a hiatus in July and August, resuming in September.
Our heavenly Father, / long ago you inspired our German forefathers in the Faith / to raise this beautiful house of prayer and sacrifice / in honor of your Son's most holy Mother, / Our Lady of Victories. Your Providence then brought many Hungarians here / under the co-patronage of the holy King, Saint Stephen. / We humbly place before you today / the spiritual and temporal needs of our historic church / and its present-day community. / Grant us the grace to discern your holy will, / and to fulfill it zealously as faithful witnesses to the Gospel, / here in the old heart of our city, / for as long as it may please your Divine Majesty.
Saint Mary of Victories, pray for us!
Saint Stephen of Hungary, pray for us!
