Bishop Athanasius Schneider to Offer Solemn Pontifical Mass in Charlotte, NC


Bishop Athanasius Schneider will make his first visit to the Diocese of Charlotte, North Carolina later this week to offer a Solemn Pontifical Mass in honor of Blessed Karl of Austria. As reported by the Catholic News Herald:

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 only the second Pontifical Latin Mass offered in the Diocese of Charlotte, the first in over thirty years. 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.
