November 15: San Jose Parish Observes 100th anniversary with Extraordinary Form Mass

Reader Roseanne Sullivan sent in news about a special event in the Bay area:
Another historically significant event in the history of the Latin Mass in the San Francisco Bay Area will take place this Saturday evening, November 15, 2014. At 5:30 pm at Five Wounds Portuguese National Church in San José, the pastor, Rev. António A. Silveira, will celebrate his first-ever Extraordinary Form Mass. Fittingly, Fr. Silveira will celebrate the traditional Latin High Mass in the same form in which the first Mass was celebrated a hundred years ago in a temporary chapel at the newly created parish on November 15, 1914. Several parish music groups will join to sing Gregorian chant and selected motets at the Centennial Mass.
