Based on the latest directive from Archbishop Hebda, we are suspending all confessions and weekend and weekday Mass times for the foreseeable future. Confession appointments may be made directly with me. I know this will come as a hardship for so many of you who love Jesus in the Eucharist and this parish; decisions like these are not made lightly. That said, we want to do our part to help end the pandemic as quickly as possible. (Letter here)

The church will not host ANY MEETINGS.  (Rehearsals, prayer groups, etc.)

Basado en la ultima directiva del Arzobispo Hebda, estamos suspendiendo todas las confesiones y las Misas del fin de semana y las Misas de entre semana, por ahora. Citas de confesión pueden hacerse directamente conmigo. Se que esto vendrá como una adversidad para muchos de ustedes quienes aman Jesús en la Eucaristía y esta parroquia; decisiones como esta no se hacen fácilmente. Dicho esto, queremos hacer nuestra parte en ayudar a terminar esta pandémica tan pronto posible.  (La carta es aqui).

La iglesia no permitiré CUALQUIER REUNIÓN.  (grupos de música o oración, etc.)

People who are sick should remain home.  Care centers are closed to outside visitors: both Sunday services and weekday masses at the care centers are temporarily suspended.  All ministers should watch their email for updates as they become available.

The Archbishop has given a dispensation for the Sunday obligation.  “If the faithful decide that congregating for Sunday Mass would constitute a risk to themselves or others, they have the freedom not to attend. Masses, however, will continue to be celebrated in our parishes as regularly scheduled at this time.”  (en Espanol)

Flu/COVID-19 Protocol (In Spanish) / El protocolo de la gripe/COVID-19 (En Espanol – Mar Valdecantos)

Las personas enfermas deben permanecer en casa. Los centros de atención están cerrados a los visitantes externos: tanto los servicios dominicales como las misas de lunes a viernes en los centros de atención están suspendidos temporalmente. Todos los ministros deben ver su correo electrónico para obtener actualizaciones a medida que estén disponibles.

El Arzobispo ha dado una dispensa para la obligación dominical. “Si los fieles deciden que congregarse para la misa dominical constituiría un riesgo para sí mismos o para los demás, tienen la libertad de no asistir. Las misas, sin embargo, seguirán celebrándose en nuestras parroquias como se programa regularmente en este momento”.  (en Espanol)
