Cup Ministry Suspended/Hand Contact

The flu season has come early this year. The California Dept. of Public Health reports that the incidence of flu and flu-like illnesses has reached a level requiring that we enact preventive measures to mitigate the possibility of infection at Mass.
Bishop Soto has issued the following directives:
• The use of the Communion cup is suspended temporarily.
• Receive the Body of Christ in the hand
• Do not shake hands. Offer the sign of Peace to those around you with a simple nod, saying “peace be with you.”
• Do not hold hands during the Our Father.
• The obligation to attend Mass does not apply to those who
are sick. If you are sick, stay home and take of yourself.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time.

Special Thanks to All Involved

       A fabulous turn-out was seen by all who attended our Christmas Party at the Parish Hall.
       The CCD students, past and present, performed a delightful skit on stage. Songs were sung, games played, delicious food was served. And a great time was had by all.

Ongoing Arise Program

     Our Arise Together in Christ Program takes place during the daytime class on Thursdays at 9am in the church.
     Our evening class is on Mondays at 7 PM in the hall. This is a great opportunity to develop a closer relationship with Christ as we enter into the advent season.
      I truly hope to see you there.
