More properly known as Divine Word Retreat Center, the Divine Word Seminary serves as home for retired and active Divine Word Missionaries in the hills of western Riverside.

The 125-bed dormitory-style facility with industrial sized kitchen, dining room, multi-purpose room with stage and screen, conference rooms, chapel for adoration, full-sized chapel for Mass, still includes the “5:30 Latin Mass” on its website.

But according to a letter sent to California Catholic Daily the Traditional Latin Mass has been cancelled by the new rector.

The Masses took place in the Stone House Chapel – see photos here.

California Catholic readers are invited in Comments section below to report the closings of other traditional Latin Masses in California.
