The Friars, Deacons and parish staff are excited to welcome you back to celebrate Mass.
We have missed you!  
For your safety, and the safety of others, please read the information below thoroughly to prepare you for this initial phase of reopening. We have consulted the CDC, State of California, Solano County, and Diocese of Sacramento protocols to establish a plan that we think will work best for our community. The health and safety of our parishioners and staff are our number one priority. We realize this is a starting point and we may need to adjust things along the way. We ask for your prayers and patience during this unprecedented time. 

Mass Options and Info:
  • The decree issued by Bishop Soto on March 13, 2020 dispensing ALL the faithful from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass and Holy days of Obligation remains in effect.
  • Individuals age 65+, and persons with compromised health conditions, are asked to continue with the shelter-in place-instituted by state and local authorities. 
  • If you are exhibiting any symptoms, such as a fever, runny nose, cough, or sneeze, please stay home
  • Public Mass will be celebrated Monday – Saturday at 8:15am, and Sunday 7:00am, 9:00am, 11:00am, 1:00pm and 5:00pm.  
  • Mass will still be live-streamed Monday-Friday 6:45am and                            Saturday Vigil at 5:00pm; these will not be open to the public.
  • A maximum of 100 people will be allowed to attend each public Mass, per State and Diocesan guidelines. Doors will be locked once we reach capacity.
  • In order for everyone to have an equal opportunity to attend Sunday Mass, we are splitting Sundays alphabetically. We are asking parishioners to attend Mass on the Sundays designated by the first letter of their last name. For example, June 14th (the first Sunday public Mass resumes), last names beginning with A – L will attend. The following week, June 21st, last names M – Z will attend, and so on. As the SIP order is modified, we will adjust accordingly.
  • Restrooms will not be available during Mass.
  • If you are unable to attend public Mass, someone who lives with you can bring the Eucharist to you. Please call the parish office to make arrangements.

Here’s what you can expect when you arrive for Mass:

  • Seating will begin 30 minutes before Mass.
  • Signs will be posted throughout the grounds to show you where to line up before Mass.
  • Greeters will be screening and seating attendees. Please follow their instructions.
  • Hymnals and missalettes have been removed from the church. Readings will be printed in the bulletin and available upon your arrival; readings are also on the myParish app.
  • To facilitate contact tracing should someone become ill, you will be asked to provide your last name and telephone number upon entry into the church.
To ensure the safety of all attendees:
  • Parishioners are required to wear masks during the entire Mass, including Communion procession. It is no longer recommended to wear gloves. (Updated 6/5/2020).
  • Hand sanitizer will be available upon entry, exit and after Communion.
  • Please cough or sneeze into a tissue or your elbow.
  • There will be no offertory collection. Wood boxes are mounted in the back of the church for your donation(s).
  • Please do not shake hands during the sign of peace.
  • Please do not hold hands during the Our Father.
  • Please follow the usher’s instructions during Communion.
  • Please do not exit the church after Mass until an usher has dismissed you.
