Here are some pictures from this past weekend's Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Bethlehem, from Mission San Juan Bautista to Mission Carmel~ A special thank you to everyone from our Latin Mass community that helped the Pilgrimage along the way, with the breakfasts, places to stay, set up, help at Mass, music, and coordination.

This is from Fr. Peter Carota, who will be leading the pilgrimage for St. Stephens starting this Friday. As we have more details, we will let you know.
I will be leading the Traditional Pilgrimage for St. Stephen Martyr Sacramento, California on Friday May 17th starting at San Juan Bautista Mission with a 8 am Holy Latin Mass. Everyone is invited to the Holy Mass, but the pilgrimage is already full. Then we will be walking to Salinas and celebrate the Holy Mass Saturday morning at the chapel at the Queen of Heaven cemetery. This is where the Monterey Bay Area Traditional Latin Mass community hold their Latin Mass every Sunday at 10:30 am. Then we walk to Marina and spend the night there. Pentecost Sunday we walk to Carmel with Holy Latin Mass at 3 pm. All are invited to participate in the Holy Latin Mass at Carmel Mission. Afterward we will have a picnic dinner at San Juan Bautista Mission on the way back to Stockton/Sacramento. This is not part of the Pilgrimage, but just a time to get together and be thankful we are loving traditional Catholics. Bring food and chairs to sit on.
Update - Here is the itinerary for events during the Pilgrimage that our community is invited to attend:
Fri. May 17 - 8am Mass at Mission San Juan Bautista, breakfast afterwards.
Between 5-5:30 pm Benediction will start at Queen of Heaven Cemetery Chapel
Sat. May 18 - 8:30 am Mass at Queen of Heaven Cemetery Chapel
Sun. May 19 - 3:00 pm Mass at the Carmel Mission
Intentions of the Pilgrimage:
To make Our Lady of Bethlehem known and loved.
In reparation for the offenses committed against the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
For the conversion of our own hearts, our families, our state, our country, and the world.

After Mass, all girls of the parish (including those not part of the Little Flowers group) may follow Fr. Milich out after the recessional andreceive his blessing along with the altar servers. They may then proceed to lay flowers at the feet of the statue of Our Lady in front of the Chapel while we sing hymns to Mary. Lyric books will be provided. After the crowning, Father will lead us in the Angelus.
Because we are honoring Our Lady this Sunday, folks are encouraged to bring picnic food for a potluck luncheon following the crowning.

Our friends from the Latin Mass Community of St. Mary Magdalen sent this note to Archbishop Gomez regarding their recent move from Mission San Buenaventura:
I just wanted to let you know that we have successfully moved from the Mission in Ventura to St. Mary Magdalen chapel in Camarillo. We had 275 people on our first Sunday (Palm) and 205 on Easter. So, we have doubled in size from our typical 90-110 at the Mission.
We are feeling welcome in our new home! Many newcomers say that they have never been to an Extraordinary Form Mass and were very moved at the reverence and beauty of this ancient form of the Roman Rite.
