Background regarding the new schedule
You may wonder: Why do we need to change the Mass times and location? Here are the reasons why we make these changes:
- Historically, Sunday Mass participation before and during the Covid-19 pandemic substantially reduced to less than 1000 people at all Masses. The most attended Masses (11:00 am and 3:00 pm) are not even 200 which is 50% below the main church’s capacity. The 5:30 pm and 7:30 am Masses are about 100 each. The Mission church will comfortably accommodate more than 200 people.
- The beautiful Mission is underutilized as a beautiful, holy, and historic place of worship. We believe it is good for us to celebrate our Lord in the Mission church. It is not just a historic place, but also a living and breathing spiritual ground for evangelization.
- We change the Mass times because we need at least two hours between Masses for the following reasons:
- Better traffic flow before and after each Mass.
- More time for lay and ordained ministers to prepare for each Mass without rushing.
- More time for the choir to practice and people to pray the Holy Rosary before Mass.
- More time to prepare and facilitate hospitality after each Mass.
- Since Family of Faith Ministry takes place on Sunday, we need time for parents, children, and helpers to celebrate, learn, and share.
We understand these changes will cause some inconvenience and adjustments. We ask for your understanding and sacrifice. We believe that with these new schedules we will better celebrate, learn, and share our faith. We thank you for your support and understanding.
For further questions and concerns, please contact Fr. Anthony and the Liturgy Team.
