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.

Fr. Beaugrand intends to drive here to meet us on Sunday, 3:00 PM - 3:30 PM, Oct. 2nd at the Pismo Beach Senior Mobile Home Park, with amenities such as bathrooms, kitchen, tables, chairs and parking thanks to Wayne and Pat Tompkins. The address of the clubhouse is 140 So. Dolliver, Pismo Beach Senior Mobile Home Park, Pismo Beach. There is a traffic light at the intersection. The security gate will remain open for all of us to drive in, without having to punch in a code. The coffee social will take place at the clubhouse venue while awaiting Fr. Beaugrand's arrival. (Those on coffee rotation, please make sure you bring your items, or call someone else to replace you if unable.) Also note a potluck is being planned, with Lori McDougall directing the food portion. Her menu is simple, but tasty, building up the meal around sandwiches and lemonade and tea. Please text Lori to offer your help with food, at (805)550-7528. For set-up, paper/eating supplies, and clean-up, please call Celine Souza at home at (805)929-0115. Please leave a message if there's no answer.

40 Days for Life runs from September 28th thru November 6th both in SLO and Santa Maria. Hourly shifts are needed to be filled in with prayer volunteers at either location. For more info, please visit this site, (http://40daysforlife.com/localcampaignsanluisobispo, OR ...santamaria), register, and fill in one or two hours per week for 5 1/2 weeks. Let's limit evil by prayer and fasting in our own communities!
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 consider thinking of a place where around 50-ish (or more?) people would be able to be seated for a gathering mid-afternoon NEXT Sunday, Oct. 2nd. 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: firstname.lastname@example.org. Thank you for your support.
Yours in Christ,
Site Webmaster Ian McDougall
