This morning (June 9, 2015), the recently ordained Rev. Fr. Timothy O’Brien, FSSP, celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving (Missa Cantata) at the Old Mission San Juan Bautista (San Juan Bautista, CA). Fr. O’Brien was ordained to the priesthood by the Most Rev. James Douglas Conley, Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska last May 30, 2015 (Ember Saturday of Pentecost). After Mass, the lay faithful were given the opportunity to receive his first blessing, and then all went outside the church yard to enjoy a potluck breakfast picnic organized by Fr. Peter Carota of the Traditional Catholic Priest blog.
The schedule for the remainder of Fr. O’Brien’s First Masses are as follows:
June 10: San Carlos Borromeo Mission (3 pm) (not in the main chapel)
June 11: San Miguel Mission (TBA)
June 12: St. Victors (LA) 6:30 pm
June 13: San Juan Capistrano Mission (9:00am)
