On this site you will find a listing of regularly scheduled and occasional Traditional Latin Masses on the Mid Peninsula of the San Francisco Bay Area—on the bay side as well as the coastside.



Currently, in the Mid-Peninsula area there is a regularly scheduled Traditional Latin Mass on the fourth Sunday of each month at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic Church in Burlingame. For the past several months we have had a schola with a professional Cantor to enable us to celebrate a Missa Cantata.

Midnight Mass on the Peninsula!

These fourth-Sunday-of-the-month Masses have been low (or quiet) Masses, but in 2015 we organized the St. Catherine Schola and we have had several Masses with Gregorian chant. If you are interested in the sung Masses or in joining the schola, please see stcatherinelatinmass.org. Some of our members sing with the St. Ann Choir of Palo Alto CA. And some of our members have no prior experience. We welcome new members to our choir.

At this Mass we are praying for an increase in respect for life, marriage and the family in our San Francisco Bay Area.

You will find Latin Masses Sunday through Friday at Mater Dolorosa Church in South San Francisco—the North Peninsula area. Also a Traditional Latin Mass is offered at St. Francis of Assisi in East Palo Alto on Fridays in the South Peninsula area. (A sung Mass on First Fridays.)
