Chant, Eat, and Meet: Recruiting Young Adults for First Saturday TLM Chant Choir and Meet Ups at St. Monica Church San Francisco

Great news! First Saturday TLMs in honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary will begin December 4 at 11 AM at St. Monica Church, 470 24th Avenue, San Francisco, CA 94121.

Singer and choir director Rebekah Wu (puretonesoprano@yahoo.com) is recruiting Bay Area young adults (20-32) for a new Young Adults Chant Choir to sing at these Masses. Scroll down for the rehearsal schedule and additional detail. Contact Rebekah with any questions or to sign up.

We currently have 5 awesome young singers (all in their early 20’s) coming from as far as Hayward! My goal is to get ten young adults singing in the choir on Dec 4th if at all possible. We will have two rehearsals at St. Monica Church:

+ Saturday November 20th 1-3 PM

+ Monday November 22 6-9 PM

A lunch will be served after the mass for young adults to meet and get to know each other. If you are not yet comfortable with the idea of chanting (yet) but want to join the lunch, email puretonesoprano@yahoo.com so that we will have enough food for everyone. If you have dietary restrictions, you may want to bring your own food.

Of course, everyone of any age is very welcome to attend these new First Saturday TLMs at St. Monica’s!

—Rebekah Wu

You’re Invited to the Twelfth Annual Celebration of the Feast of St. Cecilia and the Anniversary of the Death of Fr. Magin Catalá

The Twelfth Annual Celebration of the Feast of St. Cecilia and the anniversary of the death of Fr. Magin Catalá will be held on Monday, November 22, at 6:30 p.m. in the Santa Clara Mission Church, 500 El Camino Real, Santa Clara (which is the Santa Clara University chapel, located on the campus).

A Sung High Mass will be celebrated at the High Altar, which is otherwise used only for weddings of alumni. Prayers will be offered for the canonization of Fr. Catatá at the Altar of the Crucifix. (For the significance of the crucifix, see more to follow.)

Original “California Mission Mass” music will be sung during the Mass. This music may very well have been sung in Mission Santa Clara when Father Catala was there, since it is part of a collection compiled by California composer John Biggs from music written down by the Franciscan missionaries to be sung at the California missions. The choir also will sing Cantico del Alba from that same collection.

This annual event when the TLM is allowed once a year at the SCU chapel provides a profound glimpse into how much beauty the padres brought to the natives in their worship of the one true God and how much hope and love they shared in the religion they taught.

Fr. Catalá is much less well known than St. Junipero Serra, but he was highly revered as a miracle worker during his lifetime and after his death. Fifty-four years after he died in 1830, Father Catalá’s cause for canonization was taken up by Archbishop Joseph Alemany, the first bishop of San Francisco. Testimony about his life and virtues was submitted to Rome in 1909, but the cause for canonization of this worthy servant of God has stalled for the past 112 years. Reports of several reliable witnesses (whose letters still can be viewed in the University of Santa Clara Library Archives) were given to church officials who were investigating the holy man’s cause for sainthood. Several reported they saw Father Catalá levitate when he prayed in front of a crucifix, and that the figure of Christ detached his hands from the cross and laid them on Father Catalá’s shoulders.

That very same life-sized crucifix still hangs over a side altar in the restored Santa Clara Mission Chapel. The “Catalá Crucifix” was probably carved in Mexico and brought to the Mission with other decorations for the fifth mission church in 1802 or 1803. It resembles crucifixes of Mexican and Spanish origin dating to this period. These words, which describe Cristo Aparecido, another famous crucifix that reportedly appeared miraculously in Mexico in the previous century, could very well apply to this one. “Bloody, tortured, the lifeless head crowned with thorns, and matted hair, bowed slightly to the right. Sinew, muscle, and veins were all visible in his emaciated arms.” The description mentioned the ‘exaggerated realism’ of the sufferings of Christ … detailed depictions of blood, torn skin, and open wounds.’”

The amateur iPhone video records the Kyrie Eleison from California Mission Mass sung at Mission Santa Clara, November 22, 2019.

Here is the complete playlist.

November 2021 Update: San Francisco Bay Area Ancient Liturgies

November 4, 2021

The Benedict XVI Institute for Sacred Music and Divine Liturgy, which was founded by Archbishop Cordileone and is directed by Maggie Gallagher, sends out emails about ancient liturgies in the Bay Area. The emails include locations, times, and other information about traditional Latin Masses, Dominican rite and Eastern rite liturgies, and notably reverent ordinary form Masses—for example, those OF Masses that are celebrated with traditional sacred music and at least partly in Latin. The last update for the month of November was somehow corrupted and truncated, so it was sent out without the complete listings. This post has all of the intended contents.

To see the most recent listings for all known ancient liturgies in the area, scroll down to “Where to Find Ancient Beauties Ever New.”

Please forward a link to this page to anyone who might be interested. Apologies for the inconvenience, and for notices about the events at the beginning of the month that were not seen before they happened.

Please send updates, additions, or corrections to: editorAncientLiturgies@bxvi.org. To receive the ancient liturgies emails, register at: http://latinmasssf.com/.

Special November Masses Up to the Novena of All Souls

This section has tables of special TLMs that have come to our attention for the beginning of the month of November, which starts with All Saints and All Souls Days. Bay Area Requiem Masses in honor of all the suffering souls in purgatory continue through November 5, within the novena of All Souls. Archbishop Cordileone is offering a special Mass to pray for the homeless who have died in the past year on November 6. And the entire month is dedicated to praying for the souls of the faithful dead with special indulgences that may be obtained to help free souls from purgatory. (For more about the November indulgences, see this Benedict XVI Facebook post.)

Where to Find Ancient Beauty Ever New

“What a great list! I’m so happy to see that the TLM is being provided for God’s people. It’s very heartening to see that I am not alone.”—Maria Ebert
