At Midnight on Christmas the Traditional Latin Mass Society of San Francisco sponsored a Latin Mass at Immaculate Heart of Mary Parish in Belmont. Father Alvin Yu was the celebrant. He is a Parochial Vicar at St. Mathew’s in San Mateo and Director of Liturgy at St. Patrick Seminary in Menlo Park. He was ordained a priest in 2017. The TLM Society of San Francisco works in the Bay Area to sponsor, foster, and encourage celebrations of the Traditional Latin Mass. Recently, these young people have received proper permission to have Latin Masses at IHM. With the approval of Archbishop Cordileone and with permission of Father Mark G. Mazza, pastor, there will now be at IHM a regular Latin Mass on the first Sunday of each month at 5pm. The next Mass with be on Sunday, January 6th, The Solemnity of the Ephiphany, at 5pm. This will be a Solemn High Mass with choir. The society will arrange approved priests (with a letter of good standing in the Archdiocese) and with the pastor’s final invitation and approval, provide altar servers, and cover any added expenses involving music etc. Fr. Alvin Yu will usually be the celebrant, but there will be other approved priests from time to time. Do what you can to get the word out.
Photos from the Christmas Midnight Mass in the EF that was celebrated by Fr. Alvin Yu can now be viewed on our photo gallery.
Here’s an invitational poster for the Christmas Midnight Solemn High Mass this coming December 25. A PDF version is also available here to download and print.
Please forward to your family and friends! Hope to see you there!

The celebrant will be our Assistant Chaplain, the Rev. Fr. Alvin Yu, Parochial Vicar at St. Matthew Church in San Mateo and Director of Liturgy at St. Patrick’s Seminary.

We are most grateful to the Parish of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and to the pastor, Fr. Mark Mazza, for graciously hosting this special mass. Everyone is encouraged to bring family and friends!
