The weekend of May 20th.-22nd. will be the 6th. annual pilgrimage in honor of Our Lady of Bethlehem, whose statue was the first to arrive in California with St. Junipero Serra, and is now at Mission Carmel. The initial purpose of the Pilgrimage was to have Our Lady returned to the High Altar where she was originally, and the novena prayed asked for the elevation of St. Serra to the altar (which did happen this last October.)
On May 20th. the Pilgrimage will start with the Traditional Latin Mass around 7:45 am at Mission San Juan Bautista, and on May 22nd. the ending will be a High Mass at 3:00 pm at Mission Carmel. All are invited and welcome to attend one or both Masses.

Lord Jesus, Who has deigned to open by Your special love the unutterable goodness and riches of Your Heart to Your Bride, the Church: grant to us, Your servants, that we may merit to be enriched and refreshed by Your heavenly graces, flowing from this sweetest of fountains. Amen.
Our Father… Hail Mary… Glory Be…

Starting Trinity Sunday, May 22, the old Sacred Heart Church in Hollister will become the new site for the Traditional Latin Mass in the Monterey Bay Area.
A Misa Cantata--also known as a sung High Mass--will be offered on Sundays at 10:30 a.m. in the historic church located at 680 College Street in Hollister (95023).
A reception will follow in the courtyard outside the church.
Although much work remains to be done, the Latin Mass community is restoring the sanctuary of the old church, following as much as possible the original design. The restoration work and other improvements will continue in the months to come.
The Latin Mass community, which has been active in the Monterey Diocese for eight years, most recently at the chapel of a Catholic cemetery near Salinas, will now become part of the Hollister parish. It has been the only public Mass regularly offered in the ancient rite in the Monterey Bay Area. The Traditional Latin or Tridentine Mass is the classic rite of the Roman Catholic Church and was the norm until it was replaced in most churches in the late 1960s by a new form of Mass celebrated in modern languages. Monterey Bishop Richard Garcia has supported the restoration of the Mass and of Sacred Heart Church, as has Fr. Claudio Cabrera, the new pastor of the Hollister parish.
