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 “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!
