Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea, a Franciscan of Mary Immaculate, has recently moved into the Diocese of Madison. With the permission of his religious superiors and of Bishop Morlino, Father Isaac Mary is exploring the founding of a new Traditional Franciscan community. Prior to becoming a priest, Father Isaac was a ‘wayward son’, living in contradiction to Christ’s teaching. Due to his Mother’s prayer and the call from God to become a priest, he came back to the Church. Father Isaac is well known for his Traditional Catholic Missions. Very tough talks, from his very real experience!

Please note, the website where this information was taken from was mistaken about Fr. Isaac still being a Franciscan of Mary Immaculate.

Kentucky Homeschooling Conference to Begin with Traditional Latin Mass

On Saturday, June 5, 2010, at 8:00 am, Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea, a priest of the diocese of Madison, Wisconsin, will celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass to start the Kentucky Catholic Homeschooling Conference. Father will then act as the keynote speaker for the Conference.

The Mass will be the first public Traditional Mass at St. Christopher Parish, and in Hardin County, since the release of Pope Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum in July 2007. It appears that this may also be the first public Traditional Mass in Hardin County in over 40 years. The Mass is a public Mass and all are welcome to attend. It is not necessary to be a homeschooler, or to register for the conference, to attend the Mass.

The First Annual Kentucky Catholic Homeschooling Conference is being organized by the St. Benedict Homechool Association (SBHA) in Hardin County. Catholic homeschooling conferences are necessary for the growth of the Catholic Homeschooling Movement. Many parents wonder what homeschooling is and whether is a suitable option for their family. Conferences allow parents to explore and answer these questions, as well as to research the many curricula and programs available. Speakers provide information on how homeschooling works and why it is important, while the vendors provide curricula and other materials.

Many of the largest Catholic homeschooling curriculum programs are expected to be present, including Seton Home Study, Kolbe Academy, Our Lady of the Rosary, and Catholic Schools K-12 Virtual. Many other vendors will also be present, including college representatives from several Catholic colleges. Many Catholic companies have also donated free items to be given away as door prizes, and WLCR 1040 in Louisville has provided free advertisement to help publicize the event.

In addition, Jim Morlino of Navis Pictures has agreed to send a copy of his newly completed film, St. Bernadette of Lourdes, to be reviewed by the teens who attend the conference. This is an appropriate contribution because this movie was made using 166 homeschoolers.

In organizing this new conference, SBHA hopes to start an annual event that can eventually be managed and maintained with the assistance of the Catholic homeschooling leaders and support groups throughout Kentucky as a joint venture. This conference is open to all homeschooling families, those considering homeschooling, or friends and family members of homeschoolers throughout Kentucky. Those outside of Kentucky are also welcome to attend. Please see the conference website for cost and details.

State Catholic homeschool conference to be held in Radcliff

By KELLY R. CANTRALL

kcantrall@thenewsenterprise.com

A local Catholic homeschool conference will be the first of its kind in Kentucky.

St. Benedict’s Homeschool Association in Hardin County is co-sponsoring the first Catholic
Homeschool Conference in Kentucky. It begins at 8 a.m. June 5 at St. Christopher Catholic Church in Radcliff.

The cost is $25 for individuals, $30 for couples, and an additional $7 to bring a teenager is.

The idea for the conference came from Anne Barrientos, a member of the homeschool association, and she enlisted member Julie Siscoe to help, Siscoe said. They had traveled out of state to other conferences, and wished for a local one.

“We need one here in our state too,” she said.

The conference will feature vendors of curricula and programs for homeschooling families to use, as well as speakers, including keynote speaker the Rev. Isaac Mary Relyea. Relyea is a Franciscan from Madison, Wis., who travels as a mission priest. Other speakers will discuss topics such as family finances, family life balance and how to choose a homeschool curriculum.

Siscoe said the conference is for families who are contemplating homeschooling their children, and those who currently are homeschooling and are looking for resources and support.

Siscoe and Barrientos hope for the conference to become an annual event, she said. Siscoe said she hopes it will encourage families to homeschool or to continue with it.

“It takes a lot sometimes,” Siscoe said, so families need support like this.

The conference will begin with a Tridentine Latin Mass, which is open to anyone, not just those attending the conference.

Registration forms can be found at www.kycatholichomeschooling.org/registration_form-Final.pdf, or by mail at SBHA, Kentucky Catholic Homeschooling, P.O. Box 86, Rineyville, Ky. 40162.

Kelly R. Cantrall can be reached at (270) 505-1747.

St. Christopher’s in Radcliff to celebrate Latin Mass

A first since 1969 and Vatican II

The News-Enterprise

By BECCA OWSLEY

bowsley@thenewsenterprise.com

An event that hasn’t happened in Hardin County for many years will take place 8 a.m. Saturday at St. Christopher Catholic Church located at 1225 S. Wilson Road in Radcliff.

A Tridentine Latin Mass, or the Extraordinary Form, will kick off the Kentucky Catholic Home School Conference at St. Christopher but it is open to the public and not strictly for conference attendees.

This Mass was celebrated by the Catholic Church for almost 1,500 years, event organizer Julie Siscoe said.

Pope Paul VI introduced a Mass after the Second Vatican Council in 1969 that replaced the Latin Mass. Siscoe said the Tridentine Mass was restricted by many Bishops because they thought it had been banned. In July of 2007 Pope Benedict XVI issued a Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum that declared the Mass had never been banned and lifted the restrictions.

The Mass will be the first public Tridentine Mass celebrated at St. Christopher or in Hardin County since the release of the Summorum Pontificum in 2007, Siscoe said. From her research she concluded that there hasn’t been one celebrated in the county since 1969.

While the Mass at St. Christopher is a one time event, the only regular celebrations of Latin Mass in the diocese are at St. Martin of Tours in Louisville, Our Lady of the Caves in Horse Cave and St. Helen Catholic Church in Glasgow, Siscoe said.

Siscoe and her husband did not grow up in the Catholic faith and were not familiar with the Latin Mass. They now drive about an hour every Sunday and most Mondays to attend Mass at Our Lady of the Caves for that experience. She expects many will drive much farther to celebrate Saturday’s Mass.

The Rev. Dennis Cousens at St. Christopher explained the Mass to parishioners in a church bulletin.

The Mass is celebrated in Latin according to the rubrics for the Mass prior to the renewal of the Second Vatican Council.

It is celebrated ad orientem, which he explained means towards the east. The priest and the congregation all face the same direction, usually towards the east or the symbolic east, in expectation that Christ will return from the east.

At the Mass, Cousens explained women traditionally wear dresses and a covering on their head, Holy Communion is received on the tongue only in a kneeling position and strict silence is observed both before and after the Mass.

The Rev. Isaac Mary Relyea, of the Madison, Wis., diocese will celebrate the Mass and serve as keynote speaker for the home- school conference.
