Names of priests Father Joseph Tabigue, pastor. He is from the Philippines, professed vows as a Cleric Regular of St. Paul (the Barnabites) in 1999, and was ordained a priest in Manila in 2004. He came to the parish in 2007 and has served as pastor since 2011. He’s strongly pro-life and delivers a strong, orthodox homily (as do the other Barnabites who visit the parish.) Father Winson, a Barnabite from India, has come to the church as associate pastor.

Grimm leads traditional music at the 10:30 a.m. Sunday mass, and a smaller group leads the singing of the Gloria and other propers and has traditional English hymns for the 7:30 a.m.

Additional observations Our Lady of the Rosary is a beautiful, historic parish in the diocese of San Diego. It was founded by Italian priests to serve Italian Catholics, including many of those who worked as fishermen. The church was completed in 1923 and has a magnificent interior, including beautiful stained glass windows, murals, statues and other decorations all about the church. The church lies in the center of Little Italy near downtown San Diego; if you stroll the area, you’ll hear its bells ring before Mass. Make time to visit the gift shop, Our Lady’s Gifts., open Monday through Saturday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. (except Tuesday, when it is closed) and Sunday, 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
