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:
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!
