Updates from Our Parish

Regular Mass schedule resumes Monday, May 18th.

Father Bob’s message May 2020

The dispensation given to all the Faithful from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass will remain in effect until September 1, 2020. Catholics are encouraged to stay at home if ill or are not comfortable returning to public gatherings for the celebration of the Mass.

We received a letter from our Bishop that we will be able to return to daily Mass beginning at 8am Monday, May 18th. These daily Masses will be held in our Parish Life Center. Chairs have been set up with proper distancing. Bring your own mask and hand sanitizer. Masks must be worn when attending Mass. Please enter the Parish Life Center through the main doors.

Weekend Masses will resume in the church beginning with the 4PM Vigil on May 23rd followed by the 8pm Vietnamese Mass. The Sunday Masses on May 24th will take place at 7:15, 9:15 and 11:15 followed by the 1:30pm Spanish Mass. Attendance is limited to 25% of occupancy and seating will be by household and only at the ends of the pews. All must enter through the front doors of the church. Rear parking areas and all other doors will be closed.

6 ft. distancing must be maintained. Shaking hands and any other personal contact is not permitted. Although we are a very social parish, we request that there be no gathering in the Narthex or any other indoor area before or after Mass.

All missals have been removed and readings can be viewed using the myParish app on your smartphone or tablet.

Communion will be received ONLY in the hand. Hands must be cupped to receive the Eucharist so that no person-to-person contact is made.

Collection baskets will not be passed. You can drop your envelope in the basket provided as you leave the church.

The bulletin will continue to be available on the parish website.

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass continues to be dispensed. If you have a medical condition, compromised immune system or are feeling ill in anyway please do not come to Mass. We will continue live-streaming the Mass to Facebook and our Website.

Give thanks to God for what He has done for us!

Sign the Petition: Our Nation Must Lead on Climate Change

Catholic Climate Covenant

“While the situation is not good and the planet is suffering, the window of opportunity is still open. Despite everything. Let us not let it close. Let us open it with our determination to cultivate integral human development, to ensure a better life for future generations.”

The time to take action is NOW. The United States must lead on climate action and the US Senate must ensure that we participate in international agreements which seek to prevent the impacts from climate change from doing irreparable harm to our common home and our shared future.

During this Season of Creation, and in the spirit of St. Francis of Assisi, whose Feast Day we celebrate on October 4th, we urge you to sign the Senate Petition for International Climate Action.

Empathy in Action

Compassionate Ministries

Compassion is sometimes the fatal capacity for feeling what it is like to live inside somebody else’s skin. It is the knowledge that there can never really be any peace and joy for me until there is peace and joy finally for you too. Our Compassionate Services Ministry is the most delicate of all our ministries at St. John XXIII. True compassion lives in you… really.

Outreach Ministries

Outreach is important to our church because it is important to God and that makes it important to every Christian for the following reason. Outreach was commanded by Christ. Before His ascension, Jesus told the disciples that their impact on the world should start in their city and expand its influence into the entire world.

Worship Ministries

The Mass is the Lord’s Supper. The Mass is the celebration of the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ. Christ instituted the Eucharist in the cenacle on Holy Thursday, in the framework of the Jewish Passover, to leave to all Christians the new Passover with its saving presence until the end of time. Celebrate what we believe.
