Welcome back to St. John XXIII! Father Bob’s message May 2020

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!
