 Latin Mass


Location: Holy Family Parish, Latrobe
Celebrated: Every Sunday at 1:00 p.m.

Bishop Emeritus Lawrence E. Brandt announced the celebration of the Mass in the Extraordinary Form, or the Latin Mass as it is more well known, in the Diocese of Greensburg, December 20, 2012. This announcement corresponded to a Vatican directive that instructed every Catholic diocese in the world to make the Mass in the extraordinary form available to the faithful.

Father Daniel C. Mahoney, pastor of Holy Family Parish, Latrobe, and Dean of Deanery 4, serves as the bishop's representative for the celebration of the Mass. Father Mahoney is assisted by Father Ronald Cyktor, Jr., pastor of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, Coral, as well as Father Matthew Morelli, parochial vicar of Blessed Sacrament Cathedral, Greensburg.

 Choir Rehearsals

There is a choir/schola which sings during the Mass in the Extraordinary Form. Rehearsals are held Thursdays at 7:00 p.m., at Holy Family Church.  All individuals with some musical background are welcomed and encouraged to join. For additional information, please email Father Dan Mahoney​
