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.
There is no experience so bitter for the generous and high-minded as that of being misunderstood. There is nothing which is so wounding to the sensitive heart as having the purest, noblest, most unselfish efforts towards good, not only not appreciated, but even misjudged and regarded with suspicion by those in whose interests these efforts have been expended. This is the experience which invariably falls to the lot of God in His dealings with souls. God is the Great Misunderstood.
- Father Edward Leen, C.S.SP. (1885-1944)
