Are you interested in a hand missal for the extraordinary form of the Mass (aka, traditional Latin Mass)? Click this link for product descriptions.

As you know, during this time of covid we have been unable to place hymnals or missalettes in the pews. Having your own hand missal helps you follow the Mass and also makes it easy to study the Mass readings at home.

If you would like to have a missal of your own—for the ordinary or the extraordinary form of the Mass—we will place an order for you with the Paraclete. Paraclete sales help fund the education of the Diocese of Knoxville’s seminarians. To order, use the order form you will find at church in the narthex or fill out the online form below. When the missals arrive, we will distribute them in the church basement. Payment for your missal is due when you receive it.

Order forms must be received by March 14.

Below you’ll see descriptions of various missals, all but one of which can be ordered from the Paraclete. Prices range from under $8 to $75.

The options include daily missals, with all the readings for both daily and Sunday Masses as well as numerous prayers and devotions; Sunday-only missals; and paperback annual missals that are good for one church year (Advent through Christ the King). Missals are available in English and Spanish. Missals with leather or leatherette covers may be personalized with your name stamped on the cover in silver or gold for an additional $10.

To order, use the order form you will find at church in the narthex or fill out the online form below. When the missals arrive, we will distribute them in the church basement. Payment for your missal is due when you receive it.
