The first Latin Mass in Camp Lejeune in 40 years

What a historic day. Father Aiden Logan celebrated and Father Jose Bautista-Rojas in choir.

Two Altar Boys you really don't want to mess with, and Fr Logan.

Introibo ad altare Dei

Elevation of The Precious Blood

St Francis Xavier Chapel

It was great to be back on base. I retired over 12 years ago, and I never make it up to Lejeune all that often. But in a word --- Nice.

And you can tell when you're on a Marine Base when the Chaplain says "we need more young men to step up and learn how to serve the Mass because one of our servers will be leaving in the next few weeks for Afghanistan".

Please ensure you say a prayer for that young man (the taller of the two altar boys) and for all the men in our Armed Forces.

By the way, I'll have more pictures next Sunday.

The Mass was beautiful! When we asked the young Marine if he was going to be deployed in 2 weeks, his response was,"can't wait to get there!" May God bless and protect him and the USMC.
Reminder: Holy Mass is @ 9:30am.

I have been waiting for a Latin Mass to come to this area for a long time and I'm so very excited for it to be here!

I first became an alter boy at the CLNC base chapel back in the 60's. For about the first six months the Mass was in Latin. After that, the change was made to English. Because we knew the change was coming, we were not very diligent in learning our responses in Latin (Mea cupa.) This would have been around 1965-66. Back in those days there were 4 or 5 Masses every Sunday at the chapel.

Oh I'm so filled with JOY about this posting! I am a 55 year-old, former Woman Marine, who was stationed at Camp Lejeune from 1974-1976. There was, at that time a Catholic Priest / Chaplain on Base, but I usually attended Sunday Mass at the Infant of Prague Catholic Church off base. I live in Ohio now and go to an Independant Roman Catholic Chapel to participate at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass EVERYDAY. I'm so happy that Marines FINALLY receive the same opportunity
