Things are improving in the Raleigh diocese, a large part due to our new Bishop who is a God send.

The Church you are looking for is St. Joseph Catholic Church in SE Raleigh. Msgr. Williams is a very holy priest.

St. Joseph Catholic Church
[SIZE=+1]2813 Poole Road and the corner of Donald Ross Drive
Raleigh, North Carolina[/SIZE]
Every Wednesday they have a Novena Mass as follows:
5:45pm - Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament
6pm-7pm - Confessions
7-7:30 - Rosary
7:30-8:30 -Novena prayers, then Novena Mass

A Traditional Latin Mass is offerred every 4th Sunday at 4pm in the Cathedral in downtown Raleigh.

A Weekly Traditional Latin Mass is offerred every noon at Sacred Heart in Dunn (about an hour from Raleigh).

There is also a Byzantine Catholic Church in Cary (and another mission Church somewhere in Raleigh). The Church is located at the intersection of Piney Plains and Tryon Road near Cary Crossroads. Divine Liturgy is at 10am every Sunday.

Since you describe yourself as Traditional I would avoid places like St. Franics or St. Michael's. St. Francis is probably the most liberal parish in the diocese (with many liturgical abuses). St. Mike's is a little more moderate.

I've heard good things about the new priest at St. Catherine's in Wake Forest. He is very orthodox and is working hard to improve the parish there.

Let me know if you need any additional information.
God bless,

I'm not sure what your definition of a "holy" Catholic church entails.

That said, my family is very blessed to attend Sacred Heart Cathedral. As the "home" church of the Bishop, I assume there are no "liturgical abuses."

Masses are said most days and Cathedral School (along with Lourdes) was one of only a handful of public and private schools in the whole state with the designation of Blue Ribbon School for outstanding academic achievement.

I know Our Lady of Lourdes has adoration, I believe they may have perpetual adoration. I attend St. Catherine of Siena in Wake Forest, we have adoration currently but will be going to perpetual adoration starting sometime this year. We have a new pastor who is very reverent. We also send our children to school there. The parish community is very active and are very excited about going to perpetual adoration.

If you can be more specific of what it is you are looking for I can try to answer for you.

Sacred Heart Cathedral in Raleigh has a Latin(?) mass the first Sunday of every month at 4pm. There is a k-6 school attached to the parish and a high school, Cardinal Gibbons that is a very fine school in local Raleigh area. We have a new Bishop (2 years) who is bringing the parishes into line with proper church norms and proper Mass celebration. Welcome to the area and may you find all and more that you seek in our parishes.

If you do go there, a carpool would be a great idea. The church traffic out there is a killer.
