St Michael Catholic Church Reopens for Public Mass

June 16, 2020 - 2:43pm
St Michael Church Reopens
Beginning June 19, 2020, Solemnity of Most Sacred Heart of Jesus

Dear Parishioners,  

 

Thank you for your prayers and patience. God is good!  We are now moving to Phase 3 under the guidance of Bishop Michael Barber and Alameda County Health Department, to reopen public Mass beginning on June 19, the Solemnity of Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. 

Because we are limited to 80 people in the church, we will require that everyone make a Mass reservation at least 24 hours in advance.  This will ensure that people are not gathering in large crowds and will ensure our compliance with the number of people we can allow at Mass   Additionally, every Mass throughout the week will include the Sunday Mass readings, to offer the largest possible access to the Sunday celebration, so it is not required that you attend Mass on a Sunday.  I ask you, in your kindness, to please only reserve one Mass per week, so that as many members of our community can attend in person. 

Please remember that Bishop Michael Barber has offered a dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass.  We will also continue to livestream Mass on Facebook and YouTube.  If you are sick or have been sick over the past couple of weeks or at a higher risk for COVID 19, you are encouraged to pray the Mass from the safety of your home. 

I ask you to please be patient, flexible and compassionate with our clergy, staff and volunteers as we all get used to these new procedures. Our aim is to offer as many people the joy of worshiping together in person, while also keeping our community safe and in compliance with the Alameda County Health Department..
