Hi everyone. The Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem has begun daily Tridentine Masses at their small oratory in West. St. Louis county. Details & directions below.
The Canons Regular of the New Jerusalem (CRNJ) are now officially open in their new location in West county. They are located at 1635 Kehr’s Mill Rd in the Wildwood Area.
From Hwy 40 Westbound, take the Long Rd exit & go South to Wildhorse Creek Rd.
From Hwy 40 Eastbound, exit immediately after crossing the Daniel Boone Bridge at Chesterfield Airport Rd. Proceed to Long Rd, turn right and go to Wildhorse Creek Rd.
At Wildhorse Creek Rd:
Turn left, then make an immediate right on Kehr’s Mill Rd. About 1 mile down the road on the right, look for the black mailbox w/ long winding driveway up the hill, #1635. The phone # is 636-536-4082. It is up on the hill behind Linda Vista Catholic school
They have daily Tridentine Mass at 7:00AM. There are about 12 seats in their chapel & have been relatively empty, as word has not gotten out yet.
They are currently living in a regular house that they’re in the process of converting into an oratory.
You enter the house at the door right next to the garage. Go ahead in there, it should be open. Go through the door on the interior of the garage and walk straight back through kitchen to the curtains. Their temporary chapel behind the curtains. It’s small, surrounded by many books, and an intimate setting. You may find Fr. Daniel and his novices kneeling in silence across from each other. Also, if you stay for any length after Mass, they may hand you a copy of the Roman Breviary (the old liturgy of the hours in Latin) that they pray shortly after Mass. If you have time, I would recommend staying. I was there on Saturday and didn’t know it was coming after Mass, but I stayed and found it to be pretty neat.
They are planning to have Sunday and Holy Day Masses at a nearby priory/monastary/motherhouse, but that is still TBD on when that will happen. The long term goal is to build their own abbey for the formation of new priests.
If you don’t have a copy of the Missal, they have the red book copies on the shelf near the curtains.
Post questions if you have them.
