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!
