There will be cake & refreshments in the Bishops Hall after the 3:30 pm Mass this Sunday, August 12th. Please help us celebrate Mrs. Joan Pearsall’s 96th birthday (her actual date of birth is August 8).

Last year, we asked Joan to write the history of How the Latin Mass started in the Austin Diocese. Here is the result, which includes her conversion story: Joan Pearsall’s History of SJLMS.

Joan was interviewed few years ago for a Catholic podcast. Here is a link to the podcast: “1940s WWII British Girl –– The Blitz on London, Swing Dancing and the New World”.
