Church Life & Pastoral Care During the COVID-19 Pandemic
Due to the COVID-19 virus, no meetings are being held in our church buildings until further notice. Our usual calendar of meetings and events will be posted again when it is safe for gatherings to resume in person. But we remain a community of faith, and continue to gather in worship each Sunday at our usual times through online services via Zoom.
Online Mass Schedule
The English Mass is at 9:30 AM each Sunday, followed by the Spanish Mass at 11:00 AM.
For the link to our Zoom services, or for pastoral care, please contact Father Carlos on his mobile at: 760-554-2640.
We encourage members of our church community to reach out to one another in fellowship and share prayer requests while we wait to meet together again in person.
