Welcome to the Monterey Bay Area Traditional Latin Mass.  On Sundays and Holy Days we have the privilege of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in what is known as the Traditional Latin or Tridentine form.  The Mass is normally a High or “sung” Mass with the schola singing the ordinary and the propers.  The readings from the Epistle and Gospel are read also in English, and the sermon is in English.  Other differences you may observe:  All kneel (unless a physical handicap prevents them from doing so) and receive Holy Communion on the tongue.  Only the sacred Host is given at Communion.  Mantillas are available at the rear of the church for those wishing to pray the Mass this way, as are missals translating the Latin into English or Spanish.  We hope that you will feel, in a way that may surprise you, that you are “at home” in what was the Mass of most of our ancestors.


The Monterey Bay Area Traditional Latin Mass community is part of the Diocese of Monterey. To receive more information regarding the Latin Mass, please email us at info@MontereyLatinMass.org.
