INDOOR OR OUTDOOR MASS?

Updated: Feb 17, 2021

INDOOR OR OUTDOOR MASS?


Since Friday, February 5, there have been twists and turns in the ruling and orders at different levels concerning indoor worship in the State and County.

Just before noon yesterday, Santa Clara County announced that the U.S. District Court temporarily suspended its Monday emergency order, concluding that the County’s continued prohibition on all indoor gatherings — including indoor religious services — could remain in place for the time being.


The situation is still fluid, and the status could change several more times in the coming days.


Ascension is still offering outdoor Masses at this point, but is preparing for indoor worship when it's allowed and safe.


OUTDOOR MASS & INCLEMENT WEATHER


Weather conditions may change during this season. After signing up for an outdoor Mass, please check your email before going to Mass. We may have updates on the Mass if the weather becomes inclement.


TRIAL DRIVE-UP MASS


Our parish plans to have a trial drive-up Mass on Feb. 21 at 9:00 am at the front parking lot. There's no need for registration.

You will remain in your vehicle and hear the audio (readings, prayers, etc.) through FM 87.9. Communion will be distributed to you at your vehicle (You are required to sanitize your hands and wear a face covering when you open the car window).

We will evaluate the drive-up Mass experience and see if we can offer it on a regular basis. There will be more details as we approach the date.
