The first visit of Bishop Thomas Huber to Moscow

In November of 2021 His Excellency Bp. Thomas Huber visited the Russian Capital of Moscow for the first time since 2018, the year of his own episcopal consecration. Due to the new waves of Covid-19 and subsequent lockdown measures enacted, the waiting for bishop’s arrival took longer than initially expected.

The first visit of Bp. Huber to Moscow in his new capacity had as its goals meeting the members of the Moscow little traditional Catholic community, as well as administering the Sacraments, of which the faithful were deprived for more than a year since the moment of their exodus from the Moscow Immaculate Conception Cathedral in 2020.


Further aims of the Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus

The Society of the Sacred Heart of Jesus – Catholic lay association in support of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum (from there onward, the Society), from the very day of its foundation, Feast of All Saints, the 1st of November, 2010, has been organizing Holy Traditional Latin Masses according to the 1962 edition of the Roman Missal, which were offered in the basement chapel of the Moscow Immaculate Conception Cathedral. On Sundays and Holy Days the actual attendance would amount to around 50 persons. Another endeavors of the Society were missionary trips across Russian cities in order to bring the Mass of Ages to the people of Russia and educate them on the matters pertaining to it and the Catholic Tradition, as well as organization of recollections and spiritual exercises in the Moscow Cathedral.

Across the span of the last 10 years the Society would faithfully follow the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church as well as directions of Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum.

We thank God for those years.

The last Mass organized by the Society and offered according to the 1962 Roman Missal in the Moscow Cathedral took place on the 1st of November, 2020.
