Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea will be visiting St. Christopher Catholic Church in Radcliff, Ky to say the Traditional Latin High Mass for the KY Catholic Homeschooling Conference. The Mass will begin at 8 am. The Rosary and Confessions will precede the Mass. All are invited to attend the Mass. You do not have to be a homeschooler, or attend the conference, to attend the Mass.
Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea will also be our keynote speaker for the conference. Note: Fr. Shannon Collins was originally scheduled to celebrate the Mass and speak but something unexpected came up and he had to cancel. Fr. Isaac Relyea graciously agreed to be our replacement. Please spread the word. We are hoping for a good show of support for the conference, the Mass, and Fr. Isaac Mary Relyea.
About Father Isaac Mary Relyea
Reminiscent of St. Augustine, Father Isaac Mary Relyea had taken a dark road in life. However, he benefitted from the continual prayerful intercession of a devout mother who loved him enough to never give up on him. The results were that he had a dramatic conversion which brought him back to the church and into the priesthood.
Today, Father Relyea is a Franciscan and has established a reputation as a strong-speaking mission priest, having presented to crowds as large as 7,000. Citing great shepherds of the church such as St. Alphonsus Liguori and St. Louis de Montfort, Father Relyea is a committed confessor, typically spending up to 12 hours a day in the confessional during his missions. Well-versed in St. Liguori's Moral Theology, and his other great pastoral work Guide for Confessors, Father Relyea seeks to inform the consciences of those whom God graces to hear the fullness of the Gospel message, so that they might effectively utilize the sacraments toward the cleansing of their souls.
Father Relyea's devotion to preaching the Four Last Things--Death, Judgment, Heaven, and Hell--and his explanation of the Particular and General Judgment--have led thousands of souls to a higher degree of grace and preparation.
Father Relyea egularly offers the Tridentine Latin Mass, and will be doing so at our June 5th conference. His talk will be on the responsibilities of Catholic parents with regards to the eventual vocations of their children.
Father Relyea currently resides in the diocese of Madison, Wisconsin.
