Letter from our Parish Nurse:
As we live through this pandemic, it has affected many aspects of our lives. Masks, services and meetings canceled, school at home, altered work, loss, unemployment and underemployment are just a sample of the effects.
There have been illnesses and deaths, including in our community. The good news is that we now have vaccines available. We can be optimistic about this. Congratulations to the developers of these vaccines and thanks for your efforts!
This has been a stressful time for many. None of us know how this will play out over the next number of months. There are reasons for optimism and reasons for concern. There are concerns about changes to the virus (variants). Uncertainty is challenging to manage, especially uncertainty about something we have never experienced.
Here are a few things to consider. First and foremost, be kind to yourself. Do what you can, and then give yourself credit for it. Focus on the basics. Care for each other. Didn't get some housework done today? There's always another day. Focus first on the people, not the things.
Stay informed. Think about what you can control. Try not to worry about what you can't control.
And finally, put yourself in others' shoes. What is it like for the family who lost their grandmother to the disease? Or the person who lost his job? Or the child struggling with virtual learning and missing his friends?
We are a community of faith. None of us can "fix" this pandemic. We can, though, reach out and support each other. Being there for each other may make all the difference.
If you'd like to talk more about this, contact the church office.

Great news and prayers answered by the Supreme Court and Bishop Brennan! We can resume indoor Masses at 25% capacity meaning around 110 parishioners for each Mass. Also, we will resume 5:30 pm Saturday Vigil Mass next weekend including radio broadcast. We will continue to livestream and radio broadcast the Masses on Sunday 8:00 am (English), 9:30 am (English), 11:00 am (Spanish) and 1:00 pm Latin Tridentine. Communion will be available for those wishing to remain in their vehicles in the parking lot. Please let everyone know about the new changes.
Here is the notification from the Diocese: “On behalf of Bishop Brennan: The Supreme Court has ruled that the State of California cannot ban in-door worship services, however; it can cap indoor services at 25% of a building's capacity.
Each Pastor/Administrator can make the pastoral decision to move Masses indoors. The parishes should enforce a limit of 25 percent of capacity, follow the six-foot spacing between family groups, require masks, have sanitation stations available, no singing/chanting allowed.”
God Bless, Fr. Mark

Prayer in time of Pandemic
you always brighten our path
as a sign of salvation and of hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick, who, at the Cross, took part in Jesus’ pain while remaining steadfast in faith.
O loving Mother,
you know what we need,
and we are confident you will provide for us as at Cana in Galilee.
Intercede for us with your Son Jesus,
the Divine Physician,
for those who have fallen ill,
for those who are vulnerable,
and for those who have died. Intercede also for those charged with protecting the health and safety of others and for those who are tending to the sick and seeking a cure.
Help us, O Mother of Divine Love,
to conform to the will of the Father
and to do as we are told by Jesus,
who took upon himself our sufferings and carried our sorrows,
so as to lead us, through the Cross,
to the glory of the Resurrection. Amen.
Under thy protection we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God.
In our needs, despise not our petitions, but deliver us always from all dangers, O glorious and blessed Virgin. Amen.
