Petition Campaign

The petition campaign has begun in earnest. Over the coming weeks we will be gathering signatures as a way of demonstrating the level of support that exists within the Diocese of Beaumont for the Traditional Latin Mass. Please contact us if you'd like to support the petition - it reads as follows:

"We the undersigned, practicing Catholics residing in the Diocese of Beaumont, Texas, in keeping with the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI’s motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, request to have the Mass of Blessed John XXIII offered at St. Anthony Cathedral Basilica. We request that this extraordinary form of the Mass be offered on Sundays and feast days. We would also like to request the appointment of a chaplain for the extraordinary form of the Mass. Our ultimate goal is the celebration of a Missa Cantata (sung Mass) on Sundays and holy days, and by our signatures we commit to assisting at such celebrations on a regular basis, should they be offered."
