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

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.

Prayer Request for Joe Linggi

Heloisa and Joe Linggi of Santa Maria were friends of Fr. Bell, and some of the first parishioners at the TLM at St. Paul's in 2007. Joe's health has declined so much that he has been on Hospice for about a year. Heloisa is asking the TLM community for prayers for him, as he is in the last stages of this life.

Thank you

News Update 1/23/2017

* Several members have asked what the Latin Mass protocol is on requesting Mass intentions. Fr. Travis checked with Fr. Victor regarding Fr. Victor's preference. If you want a Mass said, please hand-deliver your request with $10 stipend directly to Fr. Robert Travis on Sundays.

* The Gonzalez family delivered a baby girl this past week! Congratulations!

* There are three veils in the lost and found in the vestibule at St. Paul's. They more than likely belong to members of our community instead of the earlier Mass-goers. Please check the box on the back cabinet.

* Celine Souza will be out of town beginning Wed., Jan. 25th, for an undetermined amount of time; hopefully, less than a month. If you have questions regarding the Latin Mass and/or Fr. Beaugrand, you can contact him via email at hugues.beaugrand@gmail.com

News Update 1/9/2017

New Year Greetings to the St. Junipero Serra TLM Members,

Tim Brown, who has been leading the Rosary before Latin Mass more recently, sent an attached pdf of the Salve Regina, (Hail Holy Queen), prayer. His intention is to invite everyone to chant the hymn together after the Rosary. You can make a copy of the attached pdf to learn the words, plus Tim will provide copies in the back of Church near the Sunday Missal booklets.
I'm not very familiar with the hymn, so found an online video with words posted in Latin here: 

Also, here's a reminder about the annual Central California Marian Eucharistic Conference, held at St. Rose's in Paso Robles this next weekend, Jan. 13-15. Please visit www.ccmec.org to see a list of great speakers. Confession will be available. A book fair with Catholic vendors and information will also be nearby. Registration online or via phone (on website) is recommended, or you can register when you arrive. 

If you made a New Year's resolution to be more involved with corporal and/or spiritual works of mercy, or if you want to be more involved on a grass-roots level with helping others in need, a good place to get a jump-start in the pro-life apostolate is coming up! On Jan. 21, the annual West Coast Walk for Life will be held at the Civic Center Plaza in San Francisco. Please see www.walkforlifewc.com for the schedule and to see pictures of previous rallies for helpful info.
A bus is registered which will be from our area (SLO & Paso Robles). If you'd like a seat on the bus, please call bus captain Mary Baxstresser at 434-6076. Seats cost $35 each, or $25 if you are a student.
