Updated Liturgical Guidelines effective FEB 25, 2022
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
The State of California has lifted the indoor face mask mandates for fully vaccinated people in certain settings. The Counties of Ventura and Santa Barbara have revised their health orders to be consistent with the State orders. Los Angeles County Health Department anticipates that it will also lift the indoor mask mandate for fully vaccinated people in the County of Los Angeles sometime in mid-March.
Under the new requirements, locations may ONLY allow people to remove their masks if the location verifies vaccination status or requires a negative COVID test of ALL workers AND visitors entering the building. If a location does not do this, then masks are required of all workers and visitors regardless of vaccination status.
As you already know, our locations do not verify vaccination status of those entering a church or other venue to attend a religious service. Therefore, all attendees at religious services should continue to wear face masks in church regardless of vaccination status.
Please note that this new interim order does not apply to schools, nor does it apply outside of Los Angeles County. The County Health Department is expected to announce masking guidance for grades K-12 within the next week and we will keep you informed on updates.
As new health orders are issued, we will continue to keep you updated.
We will be offering the following Religious Education Classes: First Communion, Confirmation and RCIA.

9:30 AM – English
11:30 AM – Spanish
DUE TO RENOVATION – THERE WILL BE NO WEEKDAY MASS EXCEPT THE WEEKEND MASSES

PLEASE CONTACT THE PARISH OFFICE TO SCHEDULE FOR BAPTISM
