PALA – A new religious community has moved from its previous North County parishes and now attends Sunday morning mass at the San Juan Diego Center, Pala.
A group of lay Roman Catholics, the Traditional Latin Mass Community of North County, are prior members of Saint Mary’s Escondido and Saint Margaret’s Oceanside, and now call Pala home.
San Diego Bishop Robert J McElroy approved the moving of the community to Pala because of diocesan restrictions placed on the celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in Latin from the 1962 Missal of Pope John XXIII by current Pope Francis.
The group moved to Pala, last September, and every Sunday average 200 faithful coming to mass.
Mass begins at 8:30 a.m. and the Divine Mercy chaplet is prayed after mass. Norbertine priests from nearby Saint Michael’s Abbey, Orange County, say mass. Confession (Sacrament of Reconciliation) is held from 7:15-8:15 a.m.
