Probable TLM in Diocese of Biloxi

Bishop Thomas Rodi of the Diocese of Biloxi, stated in response to an inquery, that Father Jon Noone, Pastor of Annunciation Parish in Kiln, Mississipppi, will begin offering the Traditional Latin Mass on the First Sunday of Lent, 2008. I encourage you to send him your thanks for undertaking this responsibility. I will travel to meet him shortly and see what his needs are in regard to the TLM.


I met with Father Jon Noone today concerning the Traditional Latin Mass he will offer. He stated he is going to offer the TLM throughout Lent at a 6:00 P.M. Saturday Mass. He will judge the need for Traditional Latin Mass based on the turnout during this timeframe.

He stated that it has been awhile since he has offered the TLM and that he could benefit from some practice. He also stated some need in the practicing of Alter Servers and determining the music selection.

The Church information is as follows:

Annunciation Catholic Church
5370 Kiln-DeLisle Road
Kiln, MS 39556
Phone (228)255-1800
Fax (228)255-1894

I encourage you pray for Father Noone and a favorable outcome of the trial period.

Reason for the site

As of this posting, there are no Traditional Latin Masses offered in the entire state of Mississippi. This site was created in order to facilitate obtaining and preserving a Traditional Latin Mass on the Mississippi Gulfcoast, namely the Diocese of Biloxi. In response to the Holy Father's recent Motu Proprio, the Una Voce-Southern Mississippi Chapter looks forward to working toward this goal. Our wish is that those interested will make use of the tools found on this site to encourage the Biloxi Diocese to once again offer the Traditional Latin Mass. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or if you have any new information that we could use towards this goal.
