The email sent in July night to parish pastors in Los Angeles, Ventura, and Santa Barbara counties — all of which are among the 30 California counties included in Newsom’s order — called the restrictions “discouraging and disappointing” and also mentioned the importance of public safety.
This is also an excellent time to remind all of our parishioners that coronavirus is real, and it is dangerous. This is the time to pray for one another, trust in Jesus, and focus on the care and love he has for each of us.
The general dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass remains in place.
If you are not feeling well, please do not feel obligated to come to Mass.
Caring for others has always been the best worship we can give up to God.
Due to health guidelines mass will be celebrated outdoors. You can stay inside your car and we will send
a Eucharistic Minister to your car during communion.
To listen to mass from inside of your car tune into 88.3 FM.
