Low Sunday Doughnuts

As we find ways for more people to get to know each other after mass, a community member is generously providing some doughnuts and coffee after mass this Sunday, April 24! She does need to borrow a coffee urn this week. If you may be able to help, please email Monica;

Easter Sunday, Victimae Paschali Laudes

Don't forget that today's Easter Sunday mass is at 1 PM. All other Sunday masses are at 10 AM.

And here is a recording of the beautiful Sequence that our schola will sing right before the Gospel.  Victimae Paschali Laudes   was composed around the eleventh century, and was confirmed as the Easter sequence at the Council of Trent.

Easter Sunday Mass

          The Traditional Latin Mass for Easter Sunday at Mary Magdalen Chapel will be at 1 PM. Masses on all other Sundays besides Easter Sunday continue to be at 10 AM. There are no other Traditional Latin Masses for the Triduum at Mary Magdalen Chapel; there will be a full set of Holy Week Traditional Latin Masses at St Vitus Parish in San Fernando.

You are welcome to email for any questions about our community; you can also give that email address out to people who attend the mass and I will add them to the mailing list     if I get an email from them.

With prayers for a spiritually fruitful Lent and Holy Week,

Skylar Covich

Veni Creator Spiritus on New Year's Day

        We hope many of you will attend our New Year's Day Latin Mass at Mary Magdalen Chapel at 10 AM.

One favorite tradition for this feast day is a plenary indulgence which the Church offers for publicly singing or reciting Veni Creator Spiritus on New Year's Day.

Traditionally, our choir has made this possible for our congregation by including Veni Creator Spiritus. We also still include a lot of Christmas music on New Year's Day and the following Sunday.

Puer Natus in Bethlehem

Merry Christmas! We hope many of you will be at this morning's 10:00 mass.

Here is a beautiful Christmas chant which our choir has traditionally sung.

        Puer Natus in Bethlehem

    (A Boy is born in Bethlehem)

The O Antiphons

The O Antiphons are ancient Advent hymns which are traditionally part of Evening Prayer on the 8 days before Christmas (the last one, O Virgo Virginum, is newer than the rest). The older ones are inspired by the verses of O Come O Come Emanuel. Traditionally our choir has sung selections from the O Antiphons each Sunday of Advent, before the start of mass; our arrangement is in English with 4-part harmony, from Anglican hymnity.

Wikipedia has a good article on the subject, and Father Z provides blog posts on each antiphon besides O Virgo Virginum which can help you medidate on their significance to the story of the Incarnation.

All Saints and All Souls

We are blessed to have the Traditional Latin Mass continuing each Sunday at St Mary Magdalen Chapel in Camarillo at 10 AM.

The Traditional Latin Mass for All Saints Day, Monday November 1, is at 7 PM at St Mary Magdalen Chapel. There is not a Traditional Latin Mass at Mary Magdalen Chapel on Tuesday, November 2, All Souls Day.

All Saints and All Souls Day are among my favorite liturgical days; All Souls Day is one of the few on which there are three separate masses traditionally celebrated according to the 1962 missal. The propers for that day are the same as in a Requiem mass, including the Dies Irae sequence.

The Fraternity of St Peter, which provides priests for our mass most Sundays through St Vitus Parish, is offering a novena of masses for the intentions of souls. It is not too late to enroll your intentions. Learn more here


Finally, I would like to make sure that those attending mass with our community are on the mailing list if they wish to be. If you have friends who would like to be on the list, encourage them to email me at

Thank you all for your support and pr                ayers!
