Archbishop Burke Celebrates Solemn Pontifical Mass in St. Louis

A Solemn Pontifical Mass was celebrated this past weekend by Archbishop Raymond Burke, Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, in his former archdiocese of St. Louis on the occasion of the 90th anniversary of the St. Louis Carmelites of the Divine Heart of Jesus.

In addition to Archbishop Burke's own presence, the Superior General of the Sisters came from the Netherlands for the occasion.

The Assistant Priest for the Mass was Fr. Thomas Keller, the deacon of the Mass was Fr. Michael J. Houser, and the subdeacon was Fr Eric Olsen. The Master of Ceremonies was Rev. Mr. Anthony Ochoa.

Fr Samuel Weber, OSB, guided the Carmelites in their chant preparations for the Mass and the servers for the Mass were all seminarians from Kenrick-Glennon Seminary.
