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: Laetare Sunday! It means hurry up! Next week will be Passiontide and then Palm Sunday and Holy Week! We have passed mid-Lent already and today Church is rejoicing and asks us to rejoice because dead to sin with Our Lord during Lent we will very soon be risen with Him by Easter Holy Communion and Confession. The gospel today is talking about the Multiplication of Bread and fishes symbolizing the Eucharist and the epistle brings us back to baptism. Station today is at the basilica of Holy Cross in Jerusalem in Rome, very close to Saint John Lateran. That Basilica is on the Mount Coelius where Saint Helena, mother of Constantin, was living. She transformed her palace into the basilica because of the Holy Relics of the Passion of Our Lord. On this day, before in that basilica, were blessed roses, queen of flowers, to represent the flowered garden in Heaven. Adam and Eve were living in a beautiful garden and were lead out of it because of their disobedience. Now, at the edge of our resurrection with Our Lord, we can see that hope being restored. Rejoice! That’s also why organ can be heard and flowers be put on the altar. Then, we will intensify our penance to be ready on time!

Message from Fr. Beaugrand: On the third Sunday of Lent, the stational Mass is said at Saint Laurent outside the walls. In that basilica are the sacred bodies of two deacons: Saint Laurent and Saint Stephen. On their feast days, Church wants us to be like Saint Laurent extinguishing the flames of the flesh and to love our enemies like Saint Stephen uniting chastity and charity. It is said that during the agony of Saint Laurent where he was being burned there were flames from his pyre and another one above him who was enlightening his soul. That image was taken to build the basilica in Rome. We found that analogy in the epistle today: light and fruits described first as negative, then positive as goodness, justice and truth. Goodness and justice regard the will and truth is for intellect because truth should enlighten the soul so that the judgement, which precedes actions, is consistent to the divine good; this is where truth lays. To conform our lives to God doesn’t seem easy but it is easy! The difficulty that we perceive is coming from our resistance. Day after day, we resist to God not entirely but we stay on the border. That edge is sharp, too sharp to risk it. We should surrender to God’s will and then we will not only be free but we rest in Him.
