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.

February 3, 2018 Bulletin

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!
