You know what's odd? I have read about Tod Brown doing away with the Latin Tridentine Mass at St. Mary's-by-the-Sea in Huntington Beach, CA.
Yet . . . the diocese's website lists it as still offering a Latin Mass on its website. Just for chuckles, I called the church's number this evening to find out whether its voice messages mention the Mass. Yup, according to the voice message, the noon Mass on Sunday is in Latin.
I am going to call the parish this week to find out the 411. Shoot, might even stop by to say hello to Fr. Martin Tran, who came down from the Archdiocese of San Francisco to help out at my own parish of St. Joseph's (Santa Ana, not Placentia) when we were in a bind and asked Brown to let him stay in Orange County.
I don't think he knew, in my opinion, that the Bishop was going to make Fr. Martin his fall guy, however. I hear Fr. Martin is doing poorly, health-wise - but he's a tough bird. He survived having a Communist put a gun to his head and pull the trigger back in Vietnam, when he was asked to renounce his Catholic faith.
Update (10/30/06) - it is not a Tridentine Mass at St. Mary's, but a New Order Mass done in Latin. So, for Trads, it's not the "real thing."
