The Traditional Latin Mass Society of San Francisco is pleased to announce that we are sponsoring a Christmas Midnight Mass in the Extraordinary Form. The celebrant will be our Assistant Chaplain, the Rev. Fr. Alvin Yu, Parochial Vicar at St. Matthew Church in San Mateo and Director of Liturgy at St. Patrick’s Seminary. The traditional Proclamation of the Birth of Christ – also known as the Christmas Proclamation – will be chanted, followed by the procession of the infant child around the church before mass. We are most grateful to the Parish of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and to the pastor, Fr. Mark Mazza, for graciously hosting this special mass. Everyone is encouraged to bring family and friends!
A good friend of the TLM Society of SF, and a frequent visitor at St. Margaret Mary’s EF Masses, Frater Israel Arauz-Rosiles, OFM Conv, recently had his Profession of Solemn Vows at Our Lady of Grace in Castro Valley, CA. The video of his solemn profession can be viewed here. Please keep Frater in your prayers!

This month Star of the Sea parish in San Francisco will be having two Solemn High Masses. One will be on Thursday, May 10th (Feast of the Ascension), and the following one will be on Thursday, May 31st (Corpus Christi). Both masses will be celebrated at 6:30 PM. The priests involved are Fr. Joseph Illo, Fr. John Mary Chung, and Fr. John Fewel (all diocesan priests residing at Star of the Sea), though from time to time the canons of the Institute of Christ the King apostolates St. Margaret Mary’s (Oakland, CA) and Immaculate Heart of Mary (San Jose, CA) would come to fill in.
Also, the 5PM Sunday Missa Cantata is going to be canceled. Father Young will continue his Sunday 12:15 p.m. Mass at Most Holy Rosary Chapel in San Rafael as usual, but his doctor ordered him to discontinue the Sunday 5:00 p.m. Mass at Star of the Sea for health reasons. Mater Dolorosa in South San Francisco still has a 5:00 p.m. Sunday Mass. This upcoming Sunday (May 6) will be the last of the 5PM EF Masses. Star of the Sea will still have a weekly Missa Cantata on Sundays at 11:30 AM, and Fr. Young will continue to celebrate Low Mass from Monday to Saturday at 12:00 PM at St. Monica’s Parish just up the street on Geary Blvd. (Geary & 24th).
