Una Voce of Lafayette, Indiana is a member of Una Voce America. Una Voce of Lafayette, Indiana is dedicated to establishing and promoting the Roman Mass codified by St. Pius V and to restoring the use of Latin, Gregorian Chant, sacred polyphony and sacred architecture in Catholic liturgy.
The Roman Mass codified by St. Pius V is now known as the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite since Pope Benedict XVI issued the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, and it is maintained as one of the forms of Eucharistic worship which are honored in universal liturgical life in full communion with the Catholic Church.
The St. Rita Latin Mass Community is the group of Catholics in the Lafayette area who are desirous of having the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite available on a regular basis.
Father Magiera of Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Indianapolis answers questions about the Traditional Latin Mass.
