Traditional Latin Mass Returns to Mission San Juan Bautista

SALINAS —After an absence of forty years, the Traditional Latin Mass according to the Roman Missal of 1962 returns to Mission San Juan Bautista on the Feast Day of Saints Peter and Paul, Sunday, June 29, 2008 at 2 PM.

The Latin Mass – to be celebrated by Father Nicholas Milich – will be a Sung Mass or Missa Cantata with Gregorian Schola composed of singers from throughout the northern part of the Diocese of Monterey.

In July 2007, Pope Benedict XVI removed all remaining restrictions on the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass in his motu proprio "Summorum Pontificum." Benedict XVI decreed the traditional rite of the Mass as the "Extraordinary Form" of the Roman Rite with any Roman Rite priest free to celebrate it without the permission of the local ordinary or any other ecclesiastical authority.

Current plans call for the Traditional Latin Mass to begin being celebrated regularly on Sundays at the San Juan Bautista Mission.

How lovely! I do wish I could go there to hear Latin Mass-- unfortunately we only have one church around where I live that has the mass, and our Buffalo Bishop, Bishop Kmiec is willing to close it! But we as a strong catholic community are standing against him! So please help us by praying for us at St. Anthony's of Padua in Buffalo, New York! They'd be most appreciated!

Wonderful blog!
