Update July 17, 2021: In light of “Traditionis Custodes,” the new motu proprio promulgated by Pope Francis on July 16, 2021 pertaining to the use of the 1962 Missal within the Latin Church, at this time Bishop Deeley intends to make no changes in the diocese. Masses will continue as scheduled, pending any further decisions by Bishop Deeley.
Please note that confessions are NOT being heard before Mass at this time.
The St. Gregory the Great Latin Mass Chaplaincy, of the Diocese of Portland, Maine was established by Bishop Richard J. Malone to serve those who wish to make use of the Missal of 1962 as provided by Pope Benedict XVI’s motu proprio Summorum Pontificum.
Beginning on July 1, 2008, Father Robert Parent formally began his position as Chaplain to the Latin Mass community in southern and central Maine.
