The Traditional Latin Mass Community of St. Junipero Serra

In the Southern part of the Diocese of Monterey, the Traditional Latin Mass Community of St. Junipero Serra has Mass every Sunday at Saint Paul the Apostle Church, 800 Bello Street, Pismo Beach, CA 93449.  For information regarding Mass times and other information, please visit their blog at

From their website:
The Traditional Latin Mass Community of Saint Junipero Serra serves those members of Christ's Faithful who worship in accordance with the traditional Latin Liturgy (or Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite) of the Catholic Church. The Sacred Liturgy is celebrated with the Roman liturgical books of 1962. Not merely its lawfulness, but the continued importance of the traditional Latin Liturgy for the faith and life of the Church, already affirmed by  St. John Paul II in 'Ecclesia Dei,' was further emphasized and guaranteed by Pope Benedict XVI, in 'Summorum Pontificum.' 
The traditional Latin Liturgy is centered on God as its core.  The Traditional Latin Mass as it has developed through the centuries, under the gentle influence of the Holy Spirit, bears treasures of language, music and ritual that raise our hearts and minds to the presence and action of Almighty God, in order to praise Him and to witness to the Gospel message given to us by Christ Jesus our Savior.
