COVID-19 MASS GUIDELINES
MASSES NOT CANCELLED

MASSES
Saturday 4pm
Sunday: 8:00am, 9:30am, and 11:00am
9:30am(Live-streamed -- Tune In HERE)

Beginning this weekend, we are planning to resume the normal Mass schedule.
The Church WILL OPEN AGAIN in accordance with the following new guidelines.

  1. We will begin with 4:00pm Vigil Mass this Saturday and on Sunday, we will have 8:00am, 9:30am and 11:00am Mass. The 9:30am Mass will still be live-streamed for those who cannot come to Mass. Please note there is NO CONFESSION. Confessions are by appointment only.

  2. Our church capacity is around 900 people, and we are only allowed 25% capacity, so we are looking at about 150 people at one time.

  3. Those who will attend Mass should wear a mask and make sure that your hands are sanitized before entering. Of course, we will have bottles of liquid sanitizers at the door for your use.

  4. To make it easy for everybody, we have marked the top of the church pews with blue tape to indicate where individuals and families can sit.

  5. If you are not with a family, please keep a distance of 6 feet away from each other.

  6. We recommend that if you are not well for whatever reason, please do not come to Mass. Stay home and watch the Mass on TV. Remember that you are still dispensed from the Sunday Mass obligation.

  7. At the Sign of Peace, please just bow to each other, no hugging, kissing, or close contact.

  8. During the Sacrament of the Eucharist, when receiving the Holy Communion, we will only distribute it in your hands and not by mouth. Make sure your hands are sanitized before receiving the Eucharist. Please remember to put your hands together and raise your left hand over your right hand higher than your chest, then the priest or Extraordinary Minister will place the host in your hand and you will consume it before returning to your pew. Those who are distributing communion will wear a mask.

  9. For your safety and for sanitary reasons, at this time there will be no missalettes or hymnals in church for use. If you have your own, you may bring it with you to church.

  10. For those who would like to use the bathroom, please make sure it is clean before and after your use, and that will make it easier for everyone else. We thank you for your cooperation.

  11. As Mass is ended and you leave, please avoid social gatherings inside and outside of church.

Fr. Bac-Hai Viet Tran

Greeting you with love and blessings from God.

How was your week? Hopefully you, your family and your loved ones are well and coping the best you can in the situation that we are in right now. This week, everyone has had a taste of the heat, humidity, rain and thunderstorms which have already arrived. Even though summer is not officially here, it surely feels like it. I am not looking forward to it. About a week ago on a Thursday evening, a friend of mine who is stationed in Folsom said his parishioners suffered with a lot of flooding. And not too far from us, right in Mandeville, the whole town was under water due to all the rain. It was too much to handle at one time. Thank God that no one was hurt.....
