Building a Home Worthy of the Immaculata

The Immaculata is the future home of the Catholic faithful of the Society of St. Pius in St. Mary's, KS. After over 40 years since the original Immaculata burned down, this magnificent Romanesque church will stand as a symbol of the Faith, for Our Lady, and for the greater glory of God. This website will keep you updated on the progress!

Nativity of the Blessed Virgin

It is with great satisfaction that I learned of the decision to rebuild the magnificent sanctuary of St. Mary's, which was unfortunately destroyed by fire, shortly after the property was acquired.

I can assure you that I agreed to the purchase in St. Mary's because of its magnificent church dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. It seemed to me to be a symbol, raised up in the heart of America, and destined to favor the Catholic Renaissance of that great country.

I would never have accepted the purchase of St. Mary's without this magnificent sanctuary. The fire was a true catastrophe, a stroke of the devil ...

May God help you to rebuild this religious edifice, for the honor of St. Mary's, for the good of the Society, and for the salvation of America. It is a national basilica.

I propose that the Society of St. Pius X participate universally in this: that a collection be made everywhere for the restoration of this sanctuary, which must be like a beacon guiding souls towards their eternity. Mary is the "stella matutina," the star that guides the mariners. May She be the guide of all Americans.

Please accept the expression of my very cordial attachment, and may God bless this holy initiative.
