Covid-19 updates

May 27, 2020

The Diocese of Orange has announced a soft opening of our parishes for Masses starting on June 14. This means that we can start planning Sacramental Celebrations. However, as you know, we still have severe restrictions for the numbers of people who can gather for events. This means that it will take a bit longer for us to come up with the new dates for First Communions, Confirmations, and Full Initiations (in the case of RCIA Elect and Candidates)

We ask that you continue to be patient with us during this phase.

Thank you very much for your Understanding!

La Diócesis de Orange ha anunciado la apertura gradual de nuestras parroquias con Misas permitidas a partir del 14 de junio. Esto significa que podemos empezar a planear Celebraciones Sacramentales. Sin embargo, como aún tenemos severas restricciones con el número de personas que pueden reunirse para eventos. Esto significa que nos llevará un poco más de tiempo llegar a las nuevas fechas para las Primeras Comuniones, Confirmaciones e Iniciaciones Completas (en el caso de los Elegidos y Candidatos del RICA)


Por este motivo, les pedimos que sigan siendo pacientes con nosotros durante esta fase.


¡Muchas gracias por su comprensión!
