About Our Liturgy
We celebrate the Liturgy according to the Roman Rite of the Catholic Church using the ritual promulgated in 1969 and approved for use in the United States in 1974/5. This was chosen because the language is in colloquial English rather than the Latinized English of the version promulgated in 2002. The readings are from the current lectionary.
The Liturgy is offered at the Saints Sergius and Bacchus private chapel. Sunday Liturgies may be attended in person or via Zoom. Instructions for attendance are available by emailing [email protected]. The Eucharist is celebrated with unleavened bread and alcohol-removed wine.
Our Liturgical Calendar is available on our Calendar page. Where available, scriptural readings and/or Order of Service booklets are available there.
Our celebrant is a retired Roman Catholic priest, ordained in 1976 but independent from the Diocese of San Bernardino.
Order of Service Booklets

They are available in two styles: one page at a time (Order of Service), or as a booklet for printing (Order of Service Booklet).
