This is the official website of the Mankato Area Latin Mass Community. The main purpose of this site is to facilitate communication about Mass schedules and special events, as well as the spread of information about the Latin Mass.
In August 2016, a group of parishioners at Ss. Peter and Paul Catholic Church in Mankato circulated a petition gathering signatures to demonstrate interest in having a regular Sunday Latin Mass at our parish. Presented with over 100 signatures, our pastor at the time, Fr. Mariano Varela, following the instructions set forth in Pope Benedict XVI’s motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, began offering a Latin High Mass every Sunday at 4:15 P.M.
The Mankato Latin Mass continues to be supported by a dedicated group of laity who are attracted to the richness, reverence, and beauty that are intrinsic to the ancient liturgy. We cordially invite any who are interested in learning more about timeless ritual of the Church to come experience it for themselves.
