  • Daily Mass will be livestreamed through Saturday, July 3 and then discontinued. The spiritual well-being from this daily service is best experienced in a community setting.

June 13, 2021 Weekend Mass Update

The Diocese of Orange has announced that due to low COVID case rates, we are able to make adjustments at our parish. As a result, the parish will slowly begin to phase in altar servers, ushers and the choir.  Bishop Vann is discontinuing the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass.

The parish will begin the transition Mass back into the church as follows:

  • June 20: 8:00 a.m. Mass – church only
  • June 27: 11:15 a.m. Mass – church only
  • July 3: 4:00 p.m. Mass – church only
  • July 4: 9:30 am.m Mass – church only

An Update from the Pastor, February 18, 2021

Hey Y’all,

As we announced at the masses this past weekend, we have some exciting news regarding the re-opening of the church!

Starting today, all 8:15am masses (Monday-Saturday) will be celebrated in the church and will also be live-streamed. For those parishioners who are attending in person, you are invited to sit in the section to the left of the center aisle as you enter the church. If necessary, you may also sit in the section furthest to the left.

Tuesday-Friday we will continue to be joined by students from our school. They will sit in the section to the right of the center aisle as you enter the church. If necessary, they will also sit in the section furthest to the right.

Going forward starting this weekend, we will begin to celebrate liturgy in the church. For now, the 4pm Saturday mass and the 9:30am Sunday mass will be celebrated in both the church and the tent. The 8am and 11:15am Sunday masses will be celebrated only in the tent. The 5pm Sunday mass will be celebrated only in the church.

Attendance in the church is limited to 225 people. Masks are required. Social distancing must be observed. When we have reached 225 people in the church, we will direct all other folks to the tent. Since attendance at 5pm Sunday mass is currently less than 100 people, we do not see a need for a simultaneous mass in the tent. We will let you know if that changes.

Here is what the schedule looks like:

WEEKEND MASS SCHEDULE

  • SATURDAY 4:00 p.m (church and tent)
  • SUNDAY 8:00 a.m. (tent only)
  • 9:30 a.m (church and tent)
  • 11:15 a.m. (tent only)
  • 5:00 p.m. (church only)

DAILY MASS SCHEDULE

  • MONDAY – SATURDAY 8:15 a.m. (church only)

We will be following all diocesan and health department safety requirements:

  • Masks are required for everyone attending Mass
  • All those attending must distance themselves at least six feet apart
  • The church will be cleaned and disinfected after each Mass

Links to the live-streamed Masses can be found on the parish YouTube channel, https://www.youtube.com/user/StsSimonandJude or by clicking on the YouTube logo in the bottom right corner of the parish website, www.ssj.org

The Sacrament of Reconciliation will continue to be available outside on Mondor Plaza in front of the Parish Office on Saturday mornings following the 8:15am mass.
