Returning to Mass and Parish Life

Page last updated July 1, 2021

We are glad to begin the process of welcoming everyone back to Mass and parish life.  We also recognize that some of you are still not able to join us in-person yet, so we will continue to keep this page active and updated with the latest info and resources.

Livestreams and Mass in-person

Our parish has resumed having all Masses inside the church.  Weekend Masses are at 5 p.m on Saturday (Vigil), 8 a.m., 9:30 a.m and 11:00 a.m. on Sunday. Daily Masses are Monday to Saturday at 8 a.m.

A “Sunday Worship Aid” for weekend Mass is available in PDF here or, from the menu above, just click on “Worship” and then “Sunday Worship Aid”.

Bishop Soto recent letter to the Faithful asked all of us to continue observing sensible public health precautions while attending Mass:

  • Practice frequent hand washing and use of hand sanitizer.
  • Refrain from hand shaking and other forms of physical contact with others outside of one’s household.
  • Facial masks are still encouraged.
  • Priests, deacons, and extraordinary ministers should continue to use facial masks for the distribution of communion.
  • For communion, the distribution of the cup is still suspended.
  • The exchange of the sign of peace during Mass may resume; a respectful bow or wave is encouraged with persons outside of one’s household.
  • Congregational singing may resume.
