Mission Statement

At present the Central Coast's Traditional Latin Mass Community of Saint Junipero Serra is served by Fr. Hughes Beaugrand at the request of the Most Reverend Richard J. Garcia, D.D., Bishop of the Diocese of Monterey in California.

The Traditional Latin Mass Community of Saint Junipero Serra serves those members of Christ's Faithful who worship in accordance with the traditional Latin Liturgy (or Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) of the Catholic Church. The Sacred Liturgy is celebrated with the Roman liturgical books of 1962. Not merely its lawfulness, but the continued importance of the traditional Latin Liturgy for the faith and life of the Church, already
affirmed by St. John Paul II in 'Ecclesia Dei,' was further emphasized and guaranteed by Pope Benedict XVI, in 'Summorum Pontificum.'

The traditional Latin Liturgy is centered on God as its core. The Traditional Latin Mass as it has developed through the centuries, under the gentle influence of the Holy Spirit, bears treasures of language, music and ritual that raise our hearts and minds to the presence and action of Almighty God, in order to praise Him and to witness to the Gospel message given to us by Christ
Jesus our Savior.

Message from Fr. Beaugrand:
Ash Wednesday, a day of Fast and Abstinence. Fasting laws are: one full meal (no meat) and 2 collations (snacks) that are less than a full meal combined. You may have seen all over diocesan websites across the Country that bishops clarified the law of fast and abstinence this year because it falls on Saint Valentine’s feast. Well, sadly people requested a dispense from fast and abstinence because they wanted to celebrate Valentine’s day. Of course, we all know that they are not celebrating the great Saint Valentine, priest and martyr of Rome who converted many people before death. Are we following the world? Right after Christmas day, stores were already showing hearts and Valentine’s decoration. The poor martyr is now a business feast. God is love and we celebrate that love every day and especially at Mass where Our Lord freely gave his life for us and renews his Holy Sacrifice on the altar overflowing grace on our souls. This week we start our journey to Easter by fast and abstinence, by pausing our lives to reflect on our way, our path, our sojourn here on earth and our journey to Heaven. 40 days to meditate, pray, fast and give to all. 40 days to do better every day what we are supposed to do. 40 days to accompany our Lord and our God. It is a short time, no time to waste!

CALENDAR OF UPCOMING EVENTS: Fr. Beaugrand will be on retreat this week keeping you in his prayers.

Prayer Requests: Please pray for Mary Mager, she is ill with the flu.

Message from Fr. Beaugrand: Wake up, why are you asleep, O Lord? The introit’s word from the Ps. 43 are asking to God some help as we are striving here on earth. We are calling God as our bodies are heavy here on earth. “For you suffer if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take from you, if a man be lifted up, if a man strike you on the face. I speak according to dishonour, as if we had been weak in this part. Wherein if any man dare (I speak foolishly), I dare also. They are Hebrews: so am I. They are Israelites: so am I. They are the seed of Abraham: so am I. They are the ministers of Christ (I speak as one less wise): I am more” Saint Paul is also making a call and complained to the Corinthians about the people in the community who are attacking him. It is in this passage he mentioned: “for myself I will glory nothing, but in my infirmities”. Then the Lord answered: “My grace is sufficient to thee… Gladly therefore will I glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may dwell in me.” Church wants us to meditate on us as individual and as a community uniting the 2nd Corinthians to the parable of the Sower in Luke. In what ground does the seed be planted? For sure, Paul’s followers heard him maybe too well as they didn’t want to hear what he was saying claiming they had precedence over him. Last week we heard the last will be the first! It is not a matter of time but a matter of work!

Masses 01/21-01/27 Hollister: Sunday 10:30am; Tuesday 6:30pm; Wednesday 7:30am; Thursday 12:00pm; Friday No Mass; Saturday Mass in SF Walk for life Pismo Beach: Sunday 3:30pm; Monday 12:30pm

CALENDAR OF UPCOMING EVENTS Walk for life in SF: Saturday January 27th Sung Mass at 10:00am at Carmelite monastery of Cristo Rey, 721 Parker Ave, SF Pismo Beach (contact Celine Souza at 929-0115 for more information), Potluck Jan. 21st after Mass

Walk for Life Information: Father Beaugrand will say a sung (High) Mass before the walk begins, at 10 am in the Carmelite Monastery of Cristo Rey(721 Parker Ave. in San Francisco).  It would be wonderful if many could attend this beautiful Mass before the walk to prepare us for this important event. There will also be a High Mass at the National Shrine of Saint Francis of Assisi, 610 Vallejo St, San Francisco, after the walk at 5:00PM  The Shrine is about 20 minutes from the end of the walk. The celebrant will be Fr. Paul Fazio OFM Conv, and the Deacon and Preacher will be Fr. Francisco Nahoe OFM Conv. Please contact Celine Souza at 929-0115 for more information.   

Message from Fr. Beaugrand “Defend life, promote peace!” Pope Francis told the Colombians this very clear message and we need to take it seriously. We are artisans of peace and promoters of life. Every year, we have this very clear opportunity to promote life in a very demonstrative way and very peaceful way. This year, I have been invited to say Holy Mass before the walk at 10:00am in the Carmelite Monastery in SF. It is such an honor and I thank God for it. It will be a sung mass! I hope we will be united all together as a community: Hollister and Pismo Beach. The way to honor life is to honor the source of life: Our Lord Jesus Christ. What a way to thank God and in the meantime to implore Him to rain graces over the city while we will walk and show example to the world. As you know, I planned to go a long time ago and when I received this invitation I was very excited and honored. I certainly do not deserve it so God has his ways. We will try to be at some point on the plaza to be united together and to walk and pray to end this abomination. It will be the feast of Saint John Chrysostom the golden mouth and I pray the Holy Ghost that He will inspire me to say what God wants. If you can’t make it, you certainly can be united spiritually by prayers and penance. Let’s be united!

Message from Fr. Beaugrand

Devotion of First Fridays of the Month. “I promise you, in the excessive mercy of my Heart that my all-powerful love will grant to all those who receive Holy Communion on the first Friday for nine consecutive months, the grace of final repentance; they shall not die in my disgrace nor without receiving the sacraments; my divine Heart shall be their safe refuge in that last moment.” Our Lord to Saint Marguerite-Marie Alacoque. All of the devotions we have to the Sacred Heart of Jesus are coming from a little village where a little girl was praying instead of playing with other children. Later, she became nun and was visited by Our Lord who showed her his Heart and said: “Look this heart who loved so much men. As a reward, I only receive ingratitude”. Our Lord said that He wants to be loved by men and whoever will have a special devotion to His Divine Heart will be safe revealing the 12 promises attached to this devotion. The conditions are to receive Holy Communion nine Fridays consecutively without interruption; to honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus and to obtain the grace of final penance; to offer each communion in reparation of offenses against the Blessed Sacrament. This is what we do in Hollister every Friday of the month, having Mass of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and then we pray the Act of reparation. We continue the following day with the First Saturday. These 2 great devotions were well attended during my childhood and that bring good memories of popular devotion for Our Lord. 

Prayer Request from Indonesia

Recently I received an email from a man from Indonesia, Kenneth, who is having a difficult time finding a priest to hear confessions and is also trying to appeal his visa application to Singapore where he had a job before he was deported due to complications outside of his control. Please keep him in your prayers.

Message from Fr. Beaugrand
Saturday, we will celebrate the dedication of the Basilicas of Saint Peter and Saint Paul. It is a special feast where we remember the day of their consecration by pope Silvester I. On Nov. 9th we celebrated the dedication of Saint John Lateran also called Archbasilica of Christ the Savior, Cathedral of Rome and mother of all churches. 9 days apart, what does it mean? Three basilicas in a week uniting Our Lord to the 2 apostles of Rome. Of course, the basilicas you can admire nowadays are not the one admired by Middle-ages pilgrims as they were destroyed by fire. Nevertheless, Church continues to remember the dedication the same days. It is noticeable that every single bishop, usually by country, has to go in Rome for a Quinquennial visit ad limina apostolorum which they require to go and venerate the tombs of the apostles. Bishops usually say mass these 2 basilicas. That has to be done every 5 years. Last time the USCCB went was in 2012.

Our Heart is in Rome. We are romans even if we never went in Rome. It is important for us to know history and to know the city of Rome. It is much easier today thanks to internet. We should be able to have a map of the City and find all major basilicas according to the journey of the apostles. It is our history and our faith. “How terrible is this place! This is no other but the house of God, the house of Heaven.” Gen, 28, 17.
