Visit from Abbé Hugues Beaugrand, IBP

On Sunday, July 24th., Abbé Hugues Beaugrand, North American Delegate for the Institute of the Good Shepherd, will be assisting at Mass and visiting with Sacred Heart Latin Mass parishioners. All are encouraged to join in meeting and welcoming Abbé Beaugrand at a potluck reception hosted by the parish in the courtyard following Mass. For those that would like to help with the reception, please contact Erin or Tracy at LatinMass@SHSBParish.org.
The Institute of the Good Shepherd is a society of traditional Catholic priests in full communion with Rome. The institute dates back to the year 2006, and was founded by several priests who were once part of the Society of Pius X.  The purpose of Abbé Beaugrand's visit is to begin the process to determine if the Sacred Heart Latin Mass could possibly be a fit for their first apostolate in North America.

Many blessings and thanks to all who worked so hard to make this move happen.

6th. Annual Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Bethlehem 2016

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.
