REPORT: California Knights organize trip to Latin Mass

Members of St. Anthony Council 16764 in San Jacinto, California traveled over 60 miles with family early Sunday morning to attend the 7:00AM Traditional Latin Mass (Low) at St. Margaret parish in Oceanside.  Here members are pictured with pastor of the parish, Fr. C├ívana Wallace.



The trip concluded with a special trip to the nearby beautiful St. Luis Rey Mission in Oceanside. 


The Knights made the special trip as St. Margaret parish is one of the closest Latin Masses to their home parish.

If you or other Knights made a trip to attend a Latin Mass or organized one at your own parish, please share your pictures with us and we'll be happy to post. Vivat Jesus!
