Designs, Budget, and Timeline Released at the Unveiling of New Immaculata Project

June 29, 2019

Beyond being the biggest Catholic church in Kansas, this will be the biggest Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX) church in the world. With a seating capacity of over 1,500, it will serve the growing community of St. Mary's for generations to come.

There is an old tradition at a wedding where the father of the bride lifts his daughter’s veil and reveals her to her groom.  Many legends and lore sir behind this practice, but from where such a custom comes, who can absolutely and conclusively say?  Nevertheless, there it is.  “And there came one of the seven angels, who had the vials full of the seven last plagues, and spoke with me, saying: Come, and I will shew thee the bride, the wife of the Lamb” (Apoc. 21:9). The veil is lifted, and the beauty of the bride is revealed to her husband.  “And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband” (Apoc. 21:2). Such a lifting of the veil occurred on June 15 at St. Mary’s Academy and College, revealing the new Immaculata, the future Society church in St. Marys, Kansas.

A Fire Scars the Kansas Prairie

Since a fire, sparked by faulty wiring, destroyed the Immaculata chapel on Nov. 8, 1978, the largest community in the SSPX has lacked a fully realized church structure. The crown of the campus, the small but stately Immaculata chapel, the chapel that had been raised with the money of 300 alumni of the old St. Mary’s College, the chapel that had taken into her bosom countless faithful and sent many forth to become priests, the chapel that persuaded Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre that St. Mary’s should become the flagship of the Society in the United States—that crown burned down almost before the ink had dried on the closing papers.  In keeping with the latter analogy, the pride of the U. S. District, the flagship, had suffered the loss of her flag.  On that evening in June, the hope and the promise of a new flag—a grander and more glorious flag—was unveiled to the parishioners at Ignatius Auditorium on the St. Mary’s campus.

During the unveiling, Mr. Nicholas Novelly, the head accountant at St. Mary’s, noted that behind great losses is always the hand of Divine Providence. The insurance money, while originally intended to rebuild the chapel, was used to nourish the infant campus of St. Mary's. For over 40 years, the school and the campus grew, as did the surrounding community.
