As we have fallen back to the purple tier of viral outbreak and new restrictions become effective on November 17, churches are no longer able to celebrate liturgies indoors. The outdoor liturgies, while possible, depend on weather conditions.
In response to the possible need to schedule Masses outdoors at the best possible temperature and light conditions, Bishop Oscar Cantú has granted permission for parishes in our Diocese to celebrate the Vigil Mass on Saturdays earlier than 4:00 pm until further notice.
As a result, the Ascension Mass Schedule will be revised as follows.
Monday – Friday: 8:00 am (live-streamed)
Saturday: 8:30 am (live-streamed)
Saturday – Vigil Mass: 3:00 pm (outdoors); 5:00 pm (live-streamed)
Sunday: 3:00 pm (outdoors).
It is important that we follow our State and County’s latest safety protocols and our own Diocesan guidance on safety and liturgies (face coverings, social distancing, sanitizing, etc.).
If you do not feel well, please stay home.
Please register for outdoor Masses on our website (here) (the new schedule on the registration page might take time). If you have no access to the online registration, please call Lea Hering at 408-499-0831.
We are finding a way to inform you more timely about possible changes to the scheduled Masses if weather conditions unexpectedly change.
Let us continue our prayer and our mission during these challenging times.
Fr. Hao Dinh
PS. If you bring gifts to the Layette program around the times for outdoor Masses (or on Monday-Thursday from 10 am - 1 pm), please place them at the basket near the parish office front door.
