Serving Christ and Connecting Catholics in Western North Carolina

CHARLOTTE — The Charlotte Latin Mass Community and St. Ann Parish in Charlotte will host Bishop Athanasius Schneider, ORC, for a special Pontifical Latin Mass (Mass in the Extraordinary Form) at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 26.

Bishop Schneider is the auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, and one of the foremost defenders of the faith in the Church today.

He will preach on the doctrine of the Kingship of Christ. A Pontifical Mass in the Extraordinary Form is one offered by a bishop or a cardinal, and will be the first Pontifical Latin Mass offered in the Diocese of Charlotte since 1985. All are welcome to attend this historic event.

A reception will follow in the parish’s Allen Center. St. Ann Church is located at 3635 Park Road in Charlotte. For details, email Mike FitzGerald at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or visit www.charlottelatinmass.org/bishopschneider.
