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.
