Our Mission:  In the Spirit of St. Francis, and as Catholics in a community of many cultures, we live the gospel of Jesus Christ.   Strengthened by Word and Sacrament, we welcome all into God’s inclusive love…

News for 6-20-2021

  1. We are happy to announce that, along with the lifting of pandemic restrictions, the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass will be lifted on July 1st! More information will be available in next weekend’s bulletin.
  2. Masks are optional for those vaccinated, and we ask for those who have not been vaccinated to continue to wear masks. Facemasks are for your protection and, in some cases, peace of mind. As a Parish, we do not judge your choice, and we ask that, as a community, we not judge each other.
  3. Masses are resuming at the Mission Church. Daily noon Mass, Monday through Friday, will begin on Monday, June 28th; and the 7 am Sunday Mass will begin on July 4th.
  4. The Parish Office Hours are Tuesday through Friday from 8 am to 3:30 pm and on Saturdays from 8 am to 10:30 am. The Loretto House Food Pantry is available from 9 am to 3 pm, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.
  5. Next weekend, we will have a special collection for Peter’s Pence. This collection aids Pope Francis’ works of charity. Thank you for your generosity.

We, as Christians, are called to welcome our new neighbors with the same love and compassion we would want ourselves to be shown in a time of persecution.

News for 6-13-2021

June 13 is the Feast of St. Anthony. However, as this year falls on a Sunday, the celebration of the Eleventh Sunday in Ordinary Time takes precedence. Therefore, we will celebrate Saint Anthony, this Monday the 14th, at the daily Mass at 8 AM.

On June 15, many of the state mandates are being lifted and changed. We are awaiting guidelines from the Diocese to find out what this means for our Masses, especially regarding the use of masks, in a group setting. We will communicate any updates to you on our social networks and website.

Just a general reminder. If you feel sick in any way, stay home. Remember that our live broadcasts of Mass are now on Sundays, at 10 AM in English and at 12 noon in Spanish. Let’s protect the health of others and remain vigilant as we move forward with reopening guidelines.

Let us…surrender to God’s plan and not be so caught up with our own. Let God use us as he sees fit in the building of His kingdom of peace, justice, and love.

God’s love is so great, that he wants us all to be saved by his Son, and his Son did not come to condemn us, but to save us and take us with him so that where he is, we are also all with God for all eternity.

This weekend is the last weekend we will live stream the Saturday 4 PM and 6 PM Masses. Beginning next weekend, we will live stream the Sunday 10 AM and the 12 PM Masses.

Next Sunday, the 30th, at 5:00 p.m. will be our next Youth Mass. We invite young adults and teens to attend.

A Memorial Day Mass will be celebrated Monday, May 31st, at 10:00 a.m. in the Cemetery Chapel.

If you are interested in being a catechist, please call Bro. Tito at 760-547-0712 for our children’s program or Natalie Ibarra at 760-547-0702 for our teens. The Diocese is offering training right now online for this coming year.

As you may notice at mass this weekend, we have implemented some changes determined by our diocese. Currently, we will continue to wear face coverings, we will resume our offertory procession and we are now able to sing indoors. We will continue to receive the Body of Christ in our hands, and exchange a no-contact sign of peace. We thank you for your cooperation and understanding as we implement changes under the guidance of our San Diego Diocese, and we look forward to resuming more practices in the near future.
