SF TLMS YouTube Channel – subscribers needed

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!

Live Stream Mass starting March 22, Laetare Sunday

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!
