Illinois Valley Latin Mass

Laudetur Iesus Christus!

Praised be Jesus Christ!


Welcome to the website of the Illinois Valley Latin Mass Society. Under the direction of the Catholic Diocese of Peoria, we are pleased to offer the Traditional Latin Mass (also known as Mass in the Extraordinary Form) at the beautiful Shrine of the Queen of the Holy Rosary in LaSalle, Illinois.

Latin Mass is offered at the Shrine every Sunday at 10:00 am. Most Sunday Masses are Low Mass (recited). However, every 3rd Sunday we are pleased to offer a sung High Mass (with readings and prayers chanted). On the third Sunday we also gather for coffee and donuts in the basement of the church. The Traditional Latin Mass is also offered at the Shrine of the Queen of the Holy Rosary on the first Saturday of the month at 8:00 am.

Please feel free to join us!

Discover the Traditional Latin Mass

You will discover that the Latin Mass is a quiet Mass, very conducive to prayer and meditation.

In this hectic and sometimes harsh world in which we live, we need a quiet place to seek refuge in the house of the Lord.

But, most of all, we need to allow ourselves to become co-victims with Our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ in His perfect Sacrifice for the redemption of the world.

Father Gardner

We invite all Catholics of the area to join us, in order to rediscover and re-appreciate the beauty, the reverence, and the solemnity of the Catholic Tridentine Mass. This endeavor is far more than a fascination with a nostalgic past. It is rather a humble recognition of the greatness of the Faith that was inspired by the ancient usage (usus antiquior).

The same Traditional Latin Mass that formed so many Catholics to be saints can also inspire us to serve the Lord more generously and courageously in these troubling times! Please do join us!
