Inaugural Mass at St. Elizabeth, ICKSP

From the early days at St. Philomena, to the constancy of The Mac and slow-but-steady growth under Summorum Pontificum, a new chapter is now set to begin in the Diocese of Cleveland’s Traditional Latin Mass legacy.

Sunday, September 24, at 10:00am is the first Mass of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest (ICKSP) at their new Cleveland apostolate at St. Elizabeth of Hungary Shrine (9016 Buckeye Rd, Cleveland, OH 44104). The ICKSP is a priestly society that celebrates the traditional Latin Mass and seeks to spread the reign of Christ in all spheres of human life. After Mass there will be light refreshments and a meet and greet to welcome Canon James Hoogerwerf, the new Rector of St. Elizabeth.

  1. Could you please print some information on St Philomena’ s experience with the Latin Mass. I am familiar with the Ohio City Church, the experience at St Augustine Manner, and St Rose. As you can tell, I am a West Sider. Fr. Kilcoyne was part of the early days on the Westside. And I can not forget St. Stephen’s either.
    Thank you

    1. Thanks for commenting and sharing that. I’m still learning about the history of the TLM here in Cleveland following Vatican 2. How and when did this movement start? Or, did it ever need a beginning; did it ever stop?

      Please feel free to email and share more of your story and what you remember about those early days. You can use the Contact page if you want.

  2. Although much of the information was excluded from my 2013 doctoral study of the TLM in the Cleveland Diocese, I did study the history of the TLM in the Cleveland Diocese following the introduction of the Novus Ordo Missae. The Missal of Paul VI came into universal effect on the first Sunday of Advent 1969. However, it was not introduced into the dioceses of the USA until the first Sunday of Lent 1970.

    The TLM at St. Augustine Manor with Fr. Kilcoyne was a result of the 1984 Indult. Before the Indult there were the Tridentine Masses celebrated by circuit priests of the Orthodox Roman Catholic Movement with which Fr. Leo Carley (Immaculate Heart of Mary, Akron) was affiliated, by the Society of Saint Pius X which developed into both St. Therese of the Child Jesus (Society of Saint Pius V since 1983) and St. Peregrine (Society of Saint Pius X since 1991), and at Sacred Heart of Jesus in Akron (Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen since 1986) which dates back to the mid-1970s.

    It is my understanding that the Mass at Saint Philomena was a Novus Ordo celebrated in a style that imitated the TLM. Can anyone confirm this?
