Because of circumstances beyond our control, we could not celebrate the feast day of our holy patron, St. Philip Neri, on May 26. Therefore we honor him belatedly with a votive sung Mass. This Traditional Latin Mass  will be celebrated at St. John the Evangelist church in Encinitas. The brothers will sing the proper and ordinary in Gregorian chant. Please join us.

Join us at St. John of the Cross church in Lemon Grove to celebrate traditional Vespers in Gregorian chant!  Thus writes St. Hilary of  Poitiers (c. 300 – c. 368)  about the healing  of the paralytic, which we find in the Gospel of the 18th Sunday after Pentecost: In this paralytic the whole Gentile world is offered for healing, he is therefore brought by the ministration of Angels; he is called Son, because he is God’s work; the sins of his soul which the Law could not remit are remitted him; for faith only justifies. Lastly, he shews the power of the resurrection, by taking up his bed, teaching that all sickness shall then be no more found in the body.

St. Jerome (347-420) is famous especially for his translation of the Bible from the Hebrew into Latin.  He was also an accomplished theologian, ascetic, and spiritual director for prominent Roman ladies. He rightfully gained the title of Doctor of the Church. We are happy to celebrate the feast of this great saint with the Traditional Latin Mass at St. John the Evangelist in Encinitas. Do join us!
