Mass in the Extraordinary Form
for the Feast of St. Didacus of Alcalá
Celebrant: Rev. Fr. Harry Neely, O.S.A.
St. Augustine Monastery Chapel

The Mass will be entirely sung in Gregorian Chant. St. Didacus (San Diego in Spanish) is the patron saint of America's Finest City. In November of 1602, Sebastián Vizcaíno was sent to map the California coast. Arriving on his flagship San Diego, Vizcaíno surveyed the harbor and what are now Mission Bay and Point Loma and named the area for St. Didacus.
Donations will benefit St. Augustine's Monastery.
Everybody is welcome to attend.
