Remember, we are now live streaming our 10:30am Sunday Mass on our parish YouTube Channel.
Also, the Bishop continues the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass.
Mask or face covering is recommended
It is recommended everyone over the age of 2 wear a mask or face covering during Mass. At this time, the parish will not be providing a mask or face covering. That is your responsibility.
EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY – NO WORSHIP AIDS ARE TO BE MADE AVAILABLE FOR MASS
Beginning immediately, Bishop Timothy Freyer has directed parishes to no longer have worship aids available for weekend Masses.
Below is an excerpt from his email to Pastors:
Friday, July 3, 2020
From Bishop Tim Freyer
“The State of California has just issued revised directives regarding places of worship. The only substantial change bans congregations from singing at religious services. To discourage congregational singing, please:
· Have a maximum of one cantor (no choirs, ensembles, quartets, etc.)
· Ask the cantor not to gesture to invite the assembly to sing
· Do not project lyrics, distribute song sheets, etc.
· Do not sing or chant the presider’s prayers which will cause the assembly to respond by singing their response.”
We respectfully ask you to follow our Bishop’s directions and refrain from singing at Mass. Thank you
