Monterey Diocese And The Latin Mass

Today I had an great appointment with Bishop Garcia, who is bishop for the Monterey Diocese.  I was born, baptized, and spent the major part of my life in this diocese.  This is where I began the St. Francis Catholic Kitchen and the Jesus, Mary and Joseph home for the homeless.IMG_4209I brought Fr. O’Brien and the three Fraternity of St. Peter’s seminarians.  

The bishop said that Fr. Milich, who offers Latin Mass is trying to purchase their own church, since they only are offering the Mass in Queen of Heaven Cemetery Mausoleum.  Here is the information on them.

The Monterey Bay Area Traditional Latin Mass, Sunday 10:30

On Sundays and Holy Days we have the privilege of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in what is known as the Traditional Latin or Tridentine form.  The Mass is normally a High or “sung” Mass with the schola singing the ordinary and the propers.  The readings from the Epistle and Gospel are read also in English, and the sermon is in English.  Other differences you may observe:  All kneel (unless a physical handicap prevents them from doing so) and receive Holy Communion on the tongue.  Only the sacred Host is given at Communion.  Mantillas are available at the rear of the church for those wishing to pray the Mass this way, as are missals translating the Latin into English or Spanish.  We hope that you will feel, in a way that may surprise you, that you are “at home” in what was the Mass of most of our ancestors.
