"Lex Orandi - Lex Credendi - Lex Vivendi"
The Society of Saint Gregory the Great is a membership association of Catholic laity formed in 2008 to promote divine worship in accordance with the Supreme Magisterium of the Church. The Society has its own schola cantorum, and regularly sponsors presentations and workshops on the Sacred Liturgy, Gregorian chant, and sacred polyphony.

The Traditional Latin Mass continues at the downtown

at 9am Sundays.
The Traditional Society of St Foillan has assumed control of this weekly Mass. When they post a public schedule, I will include it here.
After 13 years, effective 1 May 2021, the Society of St Gregory the Great (SSGG) will step back from being in charge of the weekly Latin Mass at St Francis of Assisi, Bend, OR. We will refocus our efforts to include financial support of the restoration and preservation of the Historic Church downtown.

"I am of the opinion that the old rite should be granted much more generously to all those who desire it. It is impossible to see what could be dangerous or unacceptable about that. A community is calling its very being into question when it declares that what was its holiest and highest possession is strictly forbidden and when it makes the longing for it seem downright indecent"
-Pope Benedict XVI
"The International Una Voce Federation has played an important role in supporting the use of the 1962 edition of the Roman Missal in obedience to the directives of the Holy See. For this valuable
service I express my gratitude to the members of the Federation and extend my blessing."

the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith
