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: “I am the good Shepherd. The good Shepherd giveth his life for his sheep.” In 2004, when the founders of the Institute of the good Shepherd were looking for a name, they wanted to have a name close to what we do and what we should aim: to be a shepherd! In the same manner, our seminary is under the patronage of Saint Vincent of Paul who was a Shepherd for the poor children, a father to the lost sheep. The ministry of the Institute is towards sheep in parishes, schools, youth, retreat centers. 40 priests are working in the fields: 12 in South America (Columbia, Brazil), 18 in France, 6 in Poland, 2 in Italy, 1 missionary in Uganda, 1 in the USA. In the seminary, there are 40 young men studying and praying to be a good shepherd. On June 23rd, 5 young deacons will be ordained priests in Bordeaux. The members live in community life, they pray, work, suffer, support each other. The Institute is young and in the traditional milieu, it lives in a very abstemious manner having full confidence in the Divine Providence. The Institute has a particular place because mostly of the name and the spirituality coming from it. Being new is refreshing and brings a new spirit but it is also challenging. Today, it is the major feast of the Institute: long live to the Institute of the good Shepherd. Let’s pray for the priests and seminarians who are serving or about to serve!

Mensaje del Padre Beaugrand: "Yo soy el buen pastor. El buen Pastor da su vida por sus ovejas. "En 2004, cuando los fundadores del Instituto del Buen Pastor buscaban un nombre, querían tener un nombre cercano a lo que hacemos y a lo que deberíamos aspirar: ser un ¡pastor! De la misma manera, nuestro seminario está bajo el patrocinio de San Vicente de Paúl, que era pastor de los niños pobres, padre de las ovejas perdidas. El ministerio del Instituto es hacia ovejas en parroquias, escuelas, jóvenes, centros de retiros. 40 sacerdotes trabajan en la viña del Señor: 12 en América del Sur (Colombia, Brasil), 18 en Francia, 6 en Polonia, 2 en Italia, 1 misionero en Uganda, 1 en los Estados Unidos. En el seminario, hay 40 jóvenes estudiando y orando para ser un buen pastor. El 23 de junio, 5 jóvenes diáconos serán ordenados sacerdotes en Burdeos, Francia. Los miembros viven en vida comunitaria, oran, trabajan, sufren, se apoyan mutuamente. El Instituto es joven y en el medio tradicional, vive de una manera muy abstinente y tiene plena confianza en la Divina Providencia. El Instituto tiene un lugar particular porque principalmente del nombre y la espiritualidad que proviene de El. Ser algo nuevo es refrescante y trae un nuevo espíritu, pero también es un desafío. Hoy es la gran fiesta del Instituto: viva el Instituto del buen Pastor. ¡Oremos por los sacerdotes y seminaristas que sirven o están a punto de servir!
