About the traditional Latin Mass
About St. Hugh of Lincoln Roman Catholic Church
Saint Hugh of Lincoln Church is the home of the Traditional Catholic Mass in Milwaukee. We hold firm to the teachings of the Catholic Church prior to the changes of Vatican II. We celebrate the mass following the traditional Latin Rite.
The Latin Mass as people like to call it, is the true expression of the Catholic Faith. We follow the religion Jesus Christ gave to the apostles, was preserved, nurtured and taught by the Roman Catholic Church, and which flourished up until the disastrous changes of Vatican II.
We make no compromise with the modern, liberal thinking that is so prevalent and harmful in so many of the churches today, even some of those that offer Latin Masses.
At St. Hugh of Lincoln Church we call ourselves Traditional Catholics. We follow all of the traditional Roman Catholic customs.These customs have all but disappeared in many of the Catholic churches in Milwaukee.
