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.

News Update 11/3/2016

Fr. Beaugrand left for France and returns on November 12th. He will continue to serve the Hollister TLM community as his primary parish, and we will be his secondary community. Each Sunday, Fr. Beaugrand will first offer Holy Mass at the Hollister parish at 10:30 AM, and then drive to St. Paul's to offer Holy Mass. There is no way of keeping the same 12:30 time for Mass at St. Paul's. Beginning November 13th, the Traditional Latin Mass will be offered at 3:30 PM, and will continue at 3:30 until further notice. (There will no longer be a 12:30 PM Mass at St. Paul's beginning on Nov. 13th.) As of this post, neither I nor Mrs. Celine Souza know if he will be able to arrive earlier to hear confessions. Fr. Robert Travis will still off Holy Mass at 12:30 PM on November 6th. November 6th will also be the date of the last coffee social.

Fr. Beaugrand Meet-And-Greet

Fr. Beaugrand has offered to drive down to our Central Coast area on Sunday, October 2nd, and would like to meet our TLM community members. The drive will take him approximately three hours. He has tasked Celine Souza with finding a venue in which to sit down with us all for a meet-and-greet and to both ask and answer questions.

Please contact Celine Souza immediately via email or home phone, (805) 929-0115, if you have such a space available. When a time and viable venue surfaces, she will then send out another group email this week, so please stand by. If you don't receive news by mid-week, keep looking for it until Sunday.

Dear TLM Community, 

Due to complications with our previous website we have moved to this new location. All new announcements will be posted here, as well as pictures of past and future TLM events and prayer requests. Previously taken pictures will take some time to upload to the site, so expect them to come up within the next week. If you have any questions or comments regarding this new site, please contact me at this email: ianmcdou@yahoo.com. Thank you for your support.

Yours in Christ, 
Site Webmaster Ian McDougall
