NEWS FROM OUR DIOCESE
A message from Bishop Michael C. Barber, S.J: Alameda County (April 1, 2021) Orange Tier COVID-19 Restriction Updates now in effect in Contra Costa County, as of April 7, 2021.
Parishes is Alameda and Contra Counties may now admit up to 50% of the church building's official seating capacity; however, that must take into account the ability to maintain the existing six feet distancing rule. (The bishops of California are negotiating with the State to see if this can be adjusted to three feet, as for schools). Individuals must still follow current health orders and mandates. The 50% capacity includes clergy, altat servers, musicians, sound/video tech persons and anyone in the building.
I have consulted with some people in our community and we have seen how to better serve our community. We have decided to add some Masses inside our Church. This will begin on May 9, Mother's Day. I hope you understand the situation and little by little we continue to get back, with God's help. Please see the new mass list.
