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: This is the second Sunday of Lent and in the mass of the day, it seems we are already in trouble: in fact, in the Collect we are praying God to preserve us inside and outside because we have no strength. We are weak! But still 35 days to go! It is like an athlete: when he starts his run, he is really motivated and strong but then he feels all the pain and difficulties and realizes he wasn’t that ready! Now he can see where he should have worked more! In our spiritual lives, we are motivated like lions the first days of Lent but then we feel the difficulties physically, spiritually and morally! It is not a time to complain but instead to use these weaknesses to get better. The athlete knows now where to focus more and what training he needs. Same thing for us, after a week of training, we should know where to focus and where to go: maybe doing it better, more seriously, or readjusting things for the long race to come, even for some to take it easy if we want to pass the finish line. Every step should be calculated in order to look the finish line, that’s the most important thing: no vanity but sincerity! Doing it better means taking the tools necessary to be there on Easter day!

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!

Masses 02/04-02/10 Hollister: Sunday 10:30am; Pismo Beach: Sunday 3:30pm

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!
