Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update

Latest Parish news

To our parishioners,

We would like to wish you all blessings and know that we are keeping you all in our prayers as our city, country, and world navigate through this pandemic. Considering these unprecedent events, our Bishop, Randolph Calvo, has asked for the suspension of all public masses. Keep in mind that we are not the only ones as most dioceses in the country have already done the same. Therefore, with great sorrow, this means that our regular scheduled weekend and weekday masses will not be available at least until April 30th, which also means that all public celebrations of the Tridium will not happen this year. Also, outside of an appointment, regular times for the Sacrament of Reconciliation will be unavailable.

Since mass will not be available, we also strongly encourage everyone to renew their own personal devotions in their lives. One can do this through various means such as daily reading of Sacred Scripture, the Holy Rosary, the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, spiritual reading of lives of saints, Liturgy of the Hours, Spiritual Communion, and Novenas. It is most important to spend some time daily doing these things but particularly so on Sundays as it is the Lord’s day, the Sabbath.

You can virtually attend by clicking: 10:00 am Sunday Mass. If you are unable to attend the Mass live, it will be available after the Mass has ended.

For those families and individuals participating in our Sacramental formation and preparation programs, please read this letter for further information.

At the end of the day, take heart and trust in the Lord. Though this is a challenging time, know that God is always faithful and will not abandon anyone who calls out to him. Us priests are available for any emergencies so, please, do not hesitate to reach out to us for pressing and important matters.

God bless you all,

The Saint Albert’s Staff
