We are glad that you have chosen to visit our website. The clergy and parishioners of Saint Dominic Chapel reject the changes of Vatican II. They uphold the Roman Catholic Faith by maintaining everything which was taught and done by the Church prior to Vatican II.
In order to receive the sacraments here, it is therefore necessary that you attend exclusively the traditional Latin Mass, and avoid the new Mass and reformed sacraments. We invite you to visit us and to take free of charge the booklets entitled Welcome to the Traditional Latin Mass and Traditionalists, Infallibility and the Pope, which are very informative. These booklets can be found on the counter near the main entrance to the building. Please take them with you and read them thoroughly.
If you are contemplating adherence to Catholic Tradition, we invite you to join us for Holy Mass on Sunday and to speak afterwards with the clergy, who would be happy to answer any questions that you might have. We ask only that you refrain from receiving Holy Communion until you have made the decision to attend exclusively the traditional Latin Mass and to avoid the new Mass and reformed sacraments.
The apostolate of Saint Dominic Chapel is to provide Catholics throughout the Metro Detroit area with a thoroughly Catholic atmosphere in which to practice the Faith. In order to achieve this purpose, Vatican II and its reforms are firmly rejected as being at variance with the authentic Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church.
Only clergy who have been duly ordained in the traditional rites of the Church are permitted to celebrate Mass, administer the sacraments and preach at Saint Dominic Chapel.
The first remedy against spiritual temptations which the devil plants in the hearts of many persons in these unhappy times, is to have no desire to procure by prayer, meditation, or any other good work, what are called (private) revelations, or spiritual experiences, beyond what happens in the ordinary course of things; such a desire of things which surpass the common order can have no other root or foundation but pride, presumption, a vain curiosity in what regards the things of God, and in short, an exceedingly weak faith. It is to punish this evil desire that God abandons the soul, and permits it to fall into the illusions and temptations of the devil, who seduces it, and represents to it false visions and delusive revelations. Here we have the source of most of the spiritual temptations that prevail at the present time; temptations which the spirit of evil roots in the souls of those who may be called the precursors of Antichrist.
- St. Vincent Ferrer (1350-1419)
