We will post on our website once we hear any definite news from the Archdiocese of San Francisco on the reopening of churches. In the meantime, let us continue praying fervently for the resumption of public masses. Please continue inviting new friends on our YouTube channel! Our masses will continue to be available for viewing also on our Facebook page.

Live Stream Holy Mass for the 3rd Sunday after Easter (Traditional Latin Mass / Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) will be celebrated by Fr. Alvin Yu today (May 3, Sunday) at 2:00 PM PST.

Today, Good Friday, the Mass of the Presanctified will be live streamed at 9:00 AM (PST), on both Facebook and YouTube. We apologize to our viewers for the technical difficulties from yesterday’s broadcast where our Facebook live feed got disconnected midway mass and our YouTube video had streaming issues. We are currently working to minimize and eliminate such disruptions. In the meantime, let us continue to pray in these days of the Triduum for an end to this pandemic and the restoration of public liturgies at the soonest time possible.
My Jesus, I believe that Thou art present in the Blessed Sacrament. I love Thee above all things and I desire Thee in my soul. Since I cannot now receive Thee sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. As though thou wert already there, I embrace Thee and unite myself wholly to Thee; permit not that I should ever be separated from Thee.
Just a reminder that we have our scheduled Live Stream Private Mass (Traditional Latin Mass / Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) today, Palm Sunday at 2:00 PM, PST. It’s available for viewing at our YouTube channel and Facebook Live feed. We now have 924 YouTube subscribers, thanks to those who responded to our request! At the same time, we’re now able to do a high definition (HD) livestream on YouTube, allowing a much better video experience! Thank you once again for your support, and we wish to assure you all of our prayers as we enter this holy week.
Thank you to all who responded to our YouTube subscriber appeal! The photo above is our Live Stream setup before Passion Sunday Mass yesterday, both on our Facebook page and YouTube channel. There are 864 current YouTube subscribers, we only need 136 more to hit 1,000 to be able to stream with a better quality resolution! Please continue to encourage friends and family to visit https://www.youtube.com/user/SnFranciscoLatinMass and hit the ‘Subscribe’ button.
We have successfully live streamed our Masses in the Extraordinary Form on both Facebook and YouTube platforms for the past couple of Sundays. The next live stream mass is scheduled this coming Passion Sunday (March 29, 2020 – at 2:00 PM, Pacific Standard Time) and can be viewed on this YouTube link – https://youtu.be/P7GkIcIvNSI – as well as on our Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/SFTLMS/ ).
As we continue to make use of live broadcasts to share with you our Masses during these difficult times, we would like to ask, in your kindness, to consider subscribing to our YouTube channel – https://www.youtube.com/user/SnFranciscoLatinMass – as this gives us an opportunity to use better video equipment for our live stream masses. Simply click on the ‘subscribe’ button. As a major online video platform, YouTube requires a minimum of 1,000 subscribers to be able to stream using a much better quality recording device. We currently have 800 subscribers, so we are just short of 200 subscriptions. Thank you for your kind consideration and please be assured that you all are remembered in our prayers and masses.
God keep, sustain and fortify you all as we continue our Lenten journey!
There remains much uncertainty on the availability of public masses across the US and in other countries, as the corona virus (COVID-19) pandemic rages on, leaving the faithful not much choice but to rely on live streaming of private masses of priests. In light of current circumstances, we will start to live stream our weekly Traditional Latin Masses starting this Sunday, Laetare Sunday, on March 22, 2020 at 2:00 PM. Depending on good internet connection, we hope to make it available for viewing either on our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/SFTLMS/) and/or on our YouTube channel (https://youtu.be/iQ-u-i64DJ0). Please feel free to share to friends and family!
