Traditional Latin Mass Returns to the Archdiocese of San Francisco

On Sunday, March 2, 2008 (Laetare Sunday), the traditional Latin Mass will be celebrated publicly in theholy_mass2.jpg Archdiocese of San Francisco, California for the first time in perhaps decades.

Fr. William Young, a priest of the Archdiocese of San Francisco, will celebrate the weekly 11:30 a.m. Mass in the extraordinary form at the Holy Rosary chapel of St. Vincent’s School for Boys. The school is located at One St. Vincent Drive, San Rafael, California.

To reach the chapel, take Highway 101 and exit at Marinwood/St. Vincent’s Drive (Exit 457). Turn right at the stop sign and proceed east along St. Vincent’s Drive toward the bay. The chapel is located 0.2 mile down St. Vincent’s Drive.

At 7:00 p.m. on the First Friday of each month, Fr. Lawrence Goode, pastor of St. Francis of Assisi Church in East Palo Alto, will offer a Mass according to the extraordinary form. St. Francis of Assisi Church is located at 1425 Bay Road in East Palo Alto. For more information, call the parish at (650) 322-2152.

The intention for Fr. Goode’s March 7 First Friday Mass will be the repose of the soul of Msgr. John J. Sweeny, pastor emeritus of Our Lady of Peace Shrine in Santa Clara. March 7 will be the two-year anniversary of Monsignor’s passing. Monsignor Sweeny offered a monthly Traditional Latin Mass at Our Lady of Peace from 1994 to 2004. His prayers and influence continue to benefit those strongly attached to the traditional usage of the Roman Rite.
