Information & Upcoming Events


Tradition for Tomorrow California

In 2013, the Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory was erected in the Diocese of San José, California with Five Wounds Portuguese National Church as our host.  Due to the Pandemic, we have not been able to hold Masses there since March 2020.  For the past three years with great faith and a common goal, the members of the Oratory have held Mass in a parking lot, shopping center, school chapel and an office complex, where we currently are today.  Our goal of finding a permanent location may seem daunting, but God sees our efforts and will make them fruitful in His good time.   “For with God nothing will be impossible.” Luke 1:37.  Let us join together to trust in God’s Providence and move forward, united in hope.  "In the End My Immaculate Heart will Triumph," Our Lady of Fatima.  Please click on the DEVELOPMENT tab in the menu bar to learn more about our journey.

Thank you for your continued support and generosity!

Mass Intentions

View our Mass intentions calendar here. The suggested donation for a Mass intention is $10 in the diocese of San José.

All families are limited to two intentions per month.  Please do not request dates for more than three months out.

If you submit a request for a date that is already assigned, you will be assigned another date.

Please include your legible email address on your submittal to receive confirmation of the Mass dates you were assigned.

Mass requests and Mass cards are available at the front entrance to the church.  You may place your completed Mass requests in the collection basket with your donation, or you may mail your request along with the donation to:

Immaculate Heart of Mary Oratory
Clergy Residence
Mass Intentions
4467 Illsley Court
San José, CA 95136

Input to the online Mass intentions calendar is usually made on Thursdays, so it is a good idea to check after Thursday to see if your desired date is available before submitting a new request.

After the Mass intentions calendar for the calendar year is full, we stop accepting Mass intentions until close to the start of the next year. Watch the bulletin for announcements.


Administration of the Sacraments 

  • Infant Baptism: Parents requesting Baptism for a child must be registered members of the Oratory.

  • First Holy Communion and Confirmation: Children must attend the sacrament-preparation catechism classes at the Oratory.

  • Holy Matrimony: Couples planning to marry at the Oratory must contact a priest of the Institute of Christ the King for the proper instructions.

  • Anointing of the Sick: Members facing surgery, serious illness or death may obtain the sacrament.

Never wait, never hesitate ... remember: physical healing can also be an effect of the sacrament. Don’t deprive yourself or a loved one of God’s help.
