I was looking for your Una Voce chapter website recently and it looks like it's been disabled.
Have you moved it to another server or to another address?
That was such a great site -- visually one of the best Una Voce sites out there ... I hope you kept it alive somehow.

I do apologize for not getting back to you sooner. I actually gave up the UVSB presidency back in 2010. The new president is Noah Moerbeek. I don't believe he maintained some kind of website. The problem with the website was, our webmaster sort of stopped helping us with technical issues. One day all of the links which I worked so hard to compile and to categorize and sort were no longer live and post tags were no longer working. At that point I lost my motivation to keep the site current. I had created a new website last year (Cal Latin Mass Blog) which I envisioned to be a California State-wide effort to get reps from all/most of the Latin Mass parishes to submit reports, pictures, events so that Californians can be informed as to what is available for them at all of our parishes. Alas, as usual, it was only left to the intrinsically motivated. I had recently regained some excitement to start again, and so I will probably plan some projects to promote the Latin Mass. So, please stay tuned! Thank you for the encouragement, I am glad at least some people miss my old site. I have received compliments from many people. I was told Una Voce Philippines modeled their site off of mine. May God continue to bless the efforts of Una Voce.
Have a wonderful day!
Thanks for your reply. I fully know what you mean about how projects can fade away like that. I hope you will do something again though -- perhaps a regional blog or helping a local group get a site started. I really enjoyed the visual style and design you brought to the old site.
Thanks again and God bless

For hundreds of years, Catholics all over the world have made pilgrimages to holy places, especially during Lent. Here in Orange County we are continuing that tradition with a pilgrimage in honor of Our Lady and Blessed Junipero Serra. At 9 a.m., March 11, 2012 we will walk from St. Michael’s Abbey at 19292 El Toro Road in Silverado to San Juan Capistrano Mission Serra Chapel. The Pilgrimage will end with a Tridentine Latin Mass at Serra Chapel.

Last February 7, 2012, Rev. Canon Jean-Marie Moreau, ICRSS, a priest from The Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, visited PAREF Southridge School, an all-boys private school located in Muntinlupa, Metro Manila,Philippines, and gave a talk to high school students and teachers on “The History and Development of the Roman Rite.” The talk was followed by a historic, first-ever celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass according to the Roman Missal of 1962 by Rev. Canon Moreau in the school chapel. The Missa Cantata was attended by the entire high school batch of around 300 hundred students, plus another 100 teachers and parents. The chaplain and the assistant chaplain assisted in choro.
The Missa Cantata marked the first time since 1965 that the 1962 Mass returned to a school in the Philippines attended by students and teachers. A special booklet missal was prepared by the school and handed out to the students before the Mass to enable them to understand and follow the ceremonies of the Mass. The overwhelming majority of students and teachers, some of whom were Opus Dei numeraries, had never before experienced the Traditional Latin Mass.
The Mass was very well received by the students and teachers. Many found it very solemn. One lady, who told me after the Mass that she goes to Mass at this chapel thrice a week but did not know that there was going to be this Mass, remained rooted in her place until well after the Mass and waited for Canon Moreau to come out of the sacristy to kiss his hand, saying that this was a most moving experience for her. The school director also observed that this was the first time he saw the high school boys behave so well and follow the Mass intently, even singing the ordinaries and responses together with the choir. The school thanked me for bringing the Mass and allowing all of them to experience the richness of the Tridentine liturgy. The school will be doing more TLMs this coming school year, this time celebrated by the school chaplain.
The school is an apostolate work of Opus Dei members and as such is not technically a religious school. However, the Catholic faith is taught rigorously in all grade levels and Masses (Novus Ordo) are celebrated reverently and according to the book. The school was very supportive of this initiative, even spending thousands of pesos to extend the sanctuary floor (covered in red carpet) to enable ad orientem celebration.
The school videotaped the entire Mass from the choir loft, but I’m still waiting for a copy. In the meantime, I’m sending you a video of the Mass taken by the father of one of the acolytes using his iPhone and iPad. Also attached here is the poster of the Mass. You can also click on the link to a slideshow made by Fr. Eric Forbes. It contains pictures of Canon Moreau in Guam and the Philippines, including two shots taken during his talk at Southridge.

For families who practice traditions involving "the Magi" or "La Befana" leaving gifts for children, the day begins with the wee ones discovering what was left for them while they slept on Twelfth Night.
At today's Mass, there will be a blessing of gold, frankincense, myrrh, Epiphany Water, and, after Communion, a blessing of chalk. Bring small special items of gold to have with you during the Mass, and they will be blessed if they are exposed as you sit in your pew with them (wedding rings, rosaries, an heirloom piece of gold jewelry, for example).
When Mass is over, you will take some of the blessed chalk, frankincense, myrrh, and Epiphany Water home with you, so it's good to bring a container to transport Holy Water and one to put some grains of incense and a piece of chalk into. (Note: if you can, take and keep 5 pieces of blessed incense for your Paschal Candle this Easter),
When you get home, sprinkle some Epiphany water (otherwise and afterwards used as regular Holy Water) in the rooms of your house to protect it and bring blessings. This Holy Water recalls the waters of the Jordan, and is a visible reminder of Christ's Divinity, of Jesus's revealing Himself as God at His Baptism, when were heard the words from the Father: "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased." This rite of blessing the home -- led by a priest, if possible, or the father of the house if no priest is available -- goes like this:
