Photos: 1st Holy Communion at St. Stephen’s, Sacramento, CA (May 7, 2016)

Around 40+ girls and boys had the joy of receiving our Lord Jesus Christ for the first time last Saturday (May 7, 2016), during a Solemn High Mass celebrated at St. Stephen the First Martyr parish in Sacramento, CA (an apostolate parish of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter or FSSP). Click on the photo to view the picture gallery of this special event. Please note that we have taken a limited number of pictures due to the request made to the faithful to refrain from taking photos during mass (entrance and concluding procession were ok).

2016 Confirmation at St. Stephen the First Martyr (Sacramento, CA) on 3/13/16

It was a blessing to witness the conferral of the Sacrament of Confirmation by his Excellency, the Most Reverend Myron Cotta, Auxiliary Bishop of the Diocese of Sacramento, to a large number of Confirmandi (50 in all!) at St. Stephen the First Martyr, an apostolate parish of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) at Sacramento, CA last March 13, 2016. Assisting the Bishop were Rev. John Lyons, FSSP, Rev. Lee Perry, and Rev. Zachary Akers, FSSP. The Rite of Confirmation was followed by the Benediction of the Most Blessed Sacrament, and concluded with a lively reception at the church gym. Here a few photos taken by the Traditional Latin Mass Society of San Francisco (view photo gallery here).

TLMS of SF Coverage of the 2016 Walk For Life West Coast!

It was a full day for us last Saturday (Jan. 23, 2016), as we started the day getting organized for the Walk For Life Info Faire at Civic Center Plaza. This is what we’ve been doing for the past couple of years before the Walk For Life Program, where we display and distribute materials, flyers, brochures on the Traditional Latin Mass, along with 50 other vendors (ranging from pro-life pregnancy clinics to Diocesan and religious communities). We also volunteered to take photos of our fellow vendors at the Info Faire. We started to pack our display when the program started, which included an impressive line up of speakers such as Obianuju Ekeocha of Culture of Life Africa, Mexican musical superstar and pro-life activist Emmanuel, and also David Daleiden of the Center for Medical Progress (well known for his undercover videos on Planned Parenthood’s selling of body parts of aborted babies). Inspite of the rainy weather at the onstart of the Walk (it eventually stopped), it didn’t prevent several thousands of pro-lifers from filling up the streets of downtown San Francisco! It was also edifying to see various Traditional Latin Mass communities (specially the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter and this year, the participation of more than 500 people from the Society of St. Pius X, where the Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay was present); walking side by side for the sanctity of life! After the Walk, we proceeded to the National Shrine of St. Francis of Assisi for a Solemn High Mass in the Extraordinary Form that was celebrated by Fr. Anthony M., OFM Conv., with assistance of Fr. Zachary Akers, FSSP, and Fr. Ashley Perry from St. Stephen’s. Music was provided by the St Ann Choir of Palo Alto and directed by Prof. William Mahrt. We will be uploading shortly the video of Fr. Anthony’s sermon.

In the meantime, below are some of the photos we took. Photos can be downloaded and shared, though we are only requesting photo credits to go to the Traditional Latin Mass Society of San Francisco. More photos can be viewed at our smugmug photo gallery. Click here for the photo albums of the Info Faire, Walk For Life Program, and Solemn High Mass. But be sure to mark your calendars for next year’s walk, which will take place on January 21, 2017!
