• St. Victor’s hosts Latin Mass celebrations for Advent

    St. Victor Church in North Hollywood is hosting a traditional Tridentine Mass at 7 p.m. on Sundays during Advent. The Tridentine Mass, often referred to as the Latin Mass, is celebrated according to the 1962 Roman Missal — the way it was celebrated before Second Vatican Council liturgical reforms. In 2007, Pope Benedict XVI made it easier to celebrate the “extraordinary form,” an effort to reach out to Catholics who prefer this traditional Mass.

Jean Beliveau, RIP


Jean Beliveau was more than an athlete, though certainly he was a one-in-a-million athlete. The record of his achievements almost defies belief. He played in the National Hockey League for 20 seasons and retired with 10 championship rings.
