As you may have heard or seen in the news, the State of California has
allowed Churches to reopen for indoor services. In his letter of December
21, 2020, Archbishop Josรฉ H. Gomez noted that while we can go inside, it
will be safer to continue celebrating outdoor Masses. Likewise, Los Angeles
County Public Health strongly recommends that places of worship continue to
hold services outdoors. While we welcome this news, we are also conscious of
the current dire circumstances caused by the rampant spread of the
coronavirus especially in Southern California. We live in an epicenter.

As a staff we have determined it is best for our community's safety to
continue to hold Mass outdoors on our plaza, where we can accommodate more
people than we could inside the church due to social distancing rules.
Remember, if you are ill or are of high-risk, please stay home. We thank you
for your understanding. We thank all our ministers and hospitality teams who
have aided in our outdoor liturgies. Huge thanks to our wonderful livestream
crew who have brought the Mass to those at home. Let us continue to pray for
the afflicted, for healthcare and essential workers, for the effectiveness
of the vaccine and for an end to the pandemic.

Know that you are all in our prayers,
Msgr. Paul, Msgr. Peter, Fr. Mark, the Deacons and Staff
