Fr. Timothy O’Brien, FSSP, celebrated a Mass of Thanksgiving (Missa Cantata) at the Blessed Sacrament Chapel of the Mission San Carlos Borroméo (Carmel Mission, Carmel, CA). Fr. O’Brien was ordained to the priesthood by the Most Rev. James Douglas Conley, Bishop of Lincoln, Nebraska last May 30, 2015. After Mass, the lay faithful were able to venerate a relic of the soon-to-be-canonized saint, Bl. Junipero Serra; then Fr. O’Brien gave his first blessing. The Carmel Mission’s close proximity to a beach nearby enabled a few of the faithful present, along with Fr. Peter Carota of the Traditional Catholic Priest blog (www.traditionalcatholicpriest.com) to explore.
The schedule for the remainder of Fr. O’Brien’s First Masses in California are as follows:
June 12: St. Victors (LA) 6:30 pm
June 13: San Juan Capistrano Mission (9:00am)
