Message from Father Joseph
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
Archbishop José H. Gomez announced that he would be lifting the dispensation to attend Sunday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation on June 19, 2021. The dispensation will still be granted to those who are ill or have underlying health concerns. We will implement new guidelines provided to all parishes from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles that has been working closely with state and county health officials. Read the full message from Archbishop José H. Gomez.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you from the bottom of my heart to everyone who has helped this past year and half keep our ministry alive through prayers, service and financial support. Your dedication during this Pandemic has shown us that Jesus works in various ways to bring us closer to him.
Updated Liturgical Guidelines effective June 15,2021
All liturgical celebrations (e.g., Sunday Masses, First Communions, Confirmation, Weddings, Baptisms, Funerals, Quinceañeras) and other religious services (e.g., Private Prayer, Adoration, Devotions, Prayer Services) are allowed to take place indoors without capacity limitations, social distancing, and/or prearranged “reservation” systems.
Masks are not required for fully vaccinated individuals outdoors or indoors for religious services. Masks are required for unvaccinated individuals outdoors when social distancing is not possible, and at all times indoors. The parish will not verify who is or who is not vaccinated.
Masks and social distancing are required for employees and volunteers if they are working in the church during Mass.
Holy Communion will be offered in the form of bread and Communion on the hand is encouraged.
