What to Expect when Returning to St John the Evangelist for Mass
As we begin to reopen the parish to resume the celebration of Masses, we ask that you work with us and please be patient and kind to our hospitality team as we are all figuring out this new normal together. The link below will go over three points:
- What to do before you leave your home.
- What to expect when you arrive at the parish.
- What modifications were made to the celebration of Mass.
As you continue to watch Mass streamed online, you may pray the Spiritual Communion Prayer. (Click Here) During COVID-19, “All Catholics in the Diocese of San Diego are dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass.” – Bishop McElroy
Updates on Sacraments & Celebrations
Those in RCIA, First Communion & Confirmation will be notified when we have rescheduled the celebration. Further information contact Jorge Mendoza at firstname.lastname@example.org
All Baptisms will be postponed until further notice. In an emergency, Baptisms may be celebrated, please contact email@example.com. For additional information, contact Lety Garcia at firstname.lastname@example.org
At this time, we are not hosting funeral masses in the parish. This will be lifted when we receive the okay to do so. Those seeking funeral arrangements are asked to communicate first with those in which you will be making arrangements for your deceased loved one. They will advise you on the next steps. For questions or inquiries, please email email@example.com
Anointing of the Sick
Currently there are limitations for visitors in Hospitals and other Healthcare Facilities. Please speak with the personal of those facilities if you are seeking the sacrament, as many of the hospitals have catholic chaplains that may be available. If the individual in which you are seeking the sacrament is at home, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will make arrangements as soon as possible, since our parish office is currently closed. We truly apologize for this, and pray for you and your family!
Due to social distancing regulations and limited resources available, we are holding reconciliation saturdays between 5pm to 6pm. However, this may change if there is an influx of people seeking reconciliation. Reconciliation will be held in the cry room and there will be designated signs to direct you. Please remember to stand 6ft away from one another. Questions, contact email@example.com
As the days draw near, Weddings will be rescheduled. Those preparing for Holy Matrimony are asked to continue to have all documents mailed to: 1638 Polk Ave San Diego CA 92103 or you may drop the documents off in the mailslot located on the right side of the parish office door. For those working on FOCCUS, you may be asked to use facetime, skype, or zoom in order to remotely meet. Everyone’s situation will be adjusted accordingly, and we will do our best to work with you during your journey to Holy Matrimony. For questions please contact Jorge Mendoza at firstname.lastname@example.org
