This is a Traditional Catholic church. It was
founded after a lecture given in Tampa, Florida, in 1973 by Fr.
Francis Fenton (a Catholic priest holding the degree of a Licentiate
of Sacred Theology) by a small nucleus of Catholic laity to continue
to preserve the liturgical heritage of the Latin Rite of the
Catholic Church in effect prior to the introduction of the
liturgical reforms of the Second Vatican Council. Fr. Fenton was head of one of
the first Traditional groups here in the United States: the Orthodox
Roman Catholic Movement or O.R.C.M.. For further information
