WELCOME BACK TO MASS!
by Father Brian J. Soliven on Thursday June 11, 2020
Just in time to celebrate the "source and summit of the Christian faith," our first public weekend of masses begins June 13th/14th, the great Feast of Corpus Christi (Body of Christ). I AM EXCITED TO WELCOME YOU BACK. A priest without God's people to serve is incomplete. Our new requirements are fairly simple and straightforward. As you come into the church, you will immediately notice certain pews are marked off to accommodate social distancing. Along with that, please wear your masks. Hand sanitizers are strategically placed at all door ways for your convenience. In Portola, please enter through the front doors and exit through the side doors. In Loyalton, enter through the side doorway (facing the hall doors) and exit through the main doors. Signs will be posted. The collection basket will no longer be passed around but rather, will be placed near the exits for you to drop off your donations as you leave.
More details and a letter from Bishop Soto are linked below.
