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).
Finally, we are happy to announce that our listing of Traditional Latin Masses in the San Francisco Bay Area (and beyond) has just been updated as of today (May 4, 2018). Feel free to download and share this PDF schedule.
