Registration has opened for the entire month of August!
With the increase in attendance we will have to stick with 2 Masses per month, but all weekends are available to select from. Please check the 2 Masses you would like to register your family for so you only have to register once. Please try to avoid selecting back-to-back weeks. If there is no availability at one of your desired Masses, we will work with you to find another Mass. Registration for each Sunday will close the Friday evening preceding. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Before reserving your seats for Mass, please take the time to read the guidelines that we must operate within at this time. Please note that due to current restrictions, 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.
According to the terms of the motu proprio, any priest may provide a Mass in the extraordinary form to those who request it. However, the bishop felt that under the particular circumstances in the diocese, the most practical solution was to create a Chaplaincy to serve the various individuals and communities attached to the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite.
