Welcome to the Fort Worth Latin Mass Community

The Fort Worth Latin Mass Community is a Roman Catholic community established under the jurisdiction of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Fort Worth. Its purpose is to make available to the faithful the sacraments as offered according to the liturgical books in use in 1962. We do this in the beautiful church of St. Mary of the Assumption located on the South side of downtown Fort Worth.

Every third Sunday we have a potluck dinner immediately after mass. You and your family are welcome to join us for a good time and good food.

We Have a Name…St. Benedict Parish!

The following is the Decree from Bishop Olson with all the details. Deo Gratias!!
