Appproval of the Outdoor Celebration of Mass
To God be the Glory! I am happy to announce that we received the greenlight from the County’s Health Officer allowing us to have outdoor services with the maximum of hundred (100) people in a single gathering. Masks are required and must be kept on at all time. Please bring your own chair to sit on. In this way, we minimize the risk of contamination and infection. Mass will be celebrated at the grassy area (soccer field) behind the Gallagher Hall. We will continue to ask parishioners to sign in upon arriving at the Mass venue for contact tracing purposes.
In consultation with Fr. Cleetus, starting this weekend, July 18, 2020, we decided to have four (4) Masses: 7pm (Saturday), 7am, 8am, and 7pm (Sunday). Daily Mass will be celebrated at 6:30am, Monday-Friday only.
Looking forward to celebrating Mass with you. For those of you who are able, please continue supporting our parish financially as generous as you can. You can continue mailing your collection envelops and for those who are interested in using our online giving, don’t hesitate to call Kashmir for help at: (916) 985-2065.
