Latin Masses

Commenter Matthew McKinley kindly points out that the Archdiocese's website does, after all, list the times and places of Tridentine Latin Masses (click on the title of this post). To find it on the site, you have to look under the un-obvious place of "Directories."

It is good to know that the Archdiocesan site does list the Indult Latin Masses somewhere, even if not under an obvious place. Before my previous post I did do some digging, doing a search on the Archdiocesan site for "Latin Mass" but not finding this listing.

Still, listing the Latin Masses under the category "Directories" makes them hard to find. There is every reason for the Archdiocese to ALSO list the Latin Masses under "Liturgy in Your Language." Nothing wrong with "see alsos" and cross-references, after all.

We all need to be careful and correct in our research, and I will redouble my efforts. Thanks again, Matthew!

Here's a good exercise. Try to find a Mass category for this type of Mass:

Personally, it is difficult to call it a "Mass", much less categorize it.

Dear Paul in Long Beach,

Thanks for the link! I have been meaning to mention the new site
because it is kindred in spirit and it covers the S.F. Bay Area.

Don't beat yourself up! I stumbled across the link while looking for a Catholic school!

Dear Matthew,

Thanks! And speaking of Catholic schools, do you know about the independent Catholic schools? They are independent of the Archdiocese but in communion with Rome, and they are solid.

Two such schools I know of are:

SS. Peter and Paul Church in Wilmington has an excellent parish school.

I want to give a little credit to the Archdiocesan webmaster. Despite his rather infamous reputation in other areas, he responded promptly to my request to add a missing indult site to the page. In other dioceses, such a request might have been ignored.

I have some friends with kids at St.Monica's in Pasadena and they love the school. Lots of solid parents were involved in getting it off the ground.

I believe that St. Monica's is overseen by a board that includes (or included) Fr. Marcos G. at Holy Family in Glendale (formerly of St. Andrew's in Pasadena) who oversaw my marriage classes and individuals from Thomas Aquinas college. We were considering it in the long run for our little ones prior to moving to La Verne.

Dear Alex B,

Thanks for the news!

One thing all webmasters need to do is to organize their sites well so all of the info is in logical and easy-to-find places. Then the users do not have to guess where things are or give up looking.

Effecetive July 1st, the Norbertines will be taking over SS. Peter & Paul and the current pastor of SS. Peter & Paul is going to Holy Innocents in Long Beach. He is planning on introducing solid liturgical change, as well as improve the Catholic education at the school.

It's edifying to know there are some bright spots in the archdiocese.

All the English-speaking parishes have also always been unintuitively under the "Directories" tab.

Is Fr. Pirrone also leaving SS Peter and Paul, and if so, where to?

This was good news to me. I'm only 15 minutes from Holy Innocents.

David C,

Father Pirrone is going to be the pastor of St. Aloysius Gonzaga in South Central.

Dear Paul and Joe,

Thank you for the clergy updates!

We should all redouble our prayers at this time of year for all of the priests who are incoming and outgoing in their assignments.

Miracles do happen! I know both Fr. Irving and Fr. Pirrone and they are both excellent priest doing what they can to bring sanity to the New Mass.

Fr. Irving already was a Pastor, but Fr. Pirrone being made a Pastor! I repeat Miracles do happen, thanks be to God and His Mother.

If you have not already signed the petition in support of another outstanding priest, Fr. Robert Altier, go to and do so.

I hope and pray that the people of St. Aloysius Gonzaga in South Central realize the blessing they have been given!
