Archbishop J. Peter Sartain’s 40th Ordination Anniversary Mass & Reception

An Invitation from Archbishop Peter Sartain

Dear Friends, by God’s grace, I will be celebrating the 40th anniversary of my ordination to the priesthood with Mass at St. Louis Catholic Church on Thursday, July 12th at 6:00 pm. This Mass will give me the opportunity to thank God for the gift of the priesthood and especially for the support and prayers offered to me as a young man and priest by your parish and the Catholic Community of Memphis. I am not sending out formal invitations, and everyone is cordially invited.

Though I now live far away in Seattle, Memphis is still home, and I will always be grateful for your love, prayers, and support. I’d appreciate a prayer that I will serve the people of the Archdiocese of Seattle as the Lord desires. Thank you and God Bless! Archbishop Sartain


Sound System Installation in Church

Due to popular demand, a new, improved sound system will be installed in the Church this month. Mass will be celebrated in the Clunan Center beginning on Monday, June 18th. The installation is projected to be completed by Friday, June 29th. We apologize for the inconvenience and we are excited to begin enjoying this upgrade to enhance our worship experience at Mass soon!
