Interview: Fr. Patrick Rutledge & The New Immaculata Project

This week, we spoke with Fr. Rutledge about the history of the Immaculata in St. Marys, which was destroyed by fire shortly after the SSPX acquired the property. Archbishop Lefebvre himself asked for it to be rebuilt, and some 40 years later, his vision seems to be coming to fruition!

We’ll discuss the history, the design, the challenges from a budgetary and organizational concern, and the timeline of this massive project.

“The Immaculata is the future home of the Catholic faithful of the Society of St. Pius in St. Mary’s, KS. After over 40 years since the original Immaculata burned down, this magnificent Romanesque church will stand as a symbol of the Faith, for Our Lady, and for the greater glory of God.”

We’ll look backwards a bit at the period of Septuagesima (why is there another mini-Lent?) and the historical significance of Shrove Tuesday. Finally, we’ll talk about the traditions and practices of Ash Wednesday itself.
