LENTEN RETREAT /
Retiro de Cuaresma
Extension of these parish office/ministry restrictions:
Bishop Rojas has authorized the further extension of these parish office/ministry restrictions for an additional 2 weeks through MARCH 1st, 2021. This is due to the increased public contacts and parish activity during Ash Wednesday services and Lenten schedules. Our hope is that things will improve by March 1st, and that we can add office/ministry services for our people. Procedures for added services will be sent to you before March 1st.
The following are the parish office/ministry restrictions that will continue through MARCH 1st:
Close ALL parish offices, allowing bare minimum of critical staff only (maximum of 3 persons), to work on-site, and only for tasks that cannot be completed remotely. Various staff can be staggered throughout the week.
Cancel ALL in-person meetings of ANY type and of ANY number (parish staff; clergy/deacons; all parish committees; all training sessions), including meetings of ministry services, ministry programs, etc. The permission for meetings of up to ten (10) persons is rescinded and prohibited until further notice. You should conduct any and all types of meetings by ZOOM or other remote technologies.
Conduct all parish business, ministry coordination remotely – via Zoom or other remote communication.
Food pantry distribution, a critical social justice service, is also permitted in accordance with previously distributed COVID 19 guidelines.
Seasonal projects such as charitable collection and distribution, special donations and fund-raisers may continue, but only if operated OUTDOORS, via drive-thru or pick-up ONLY, and only if staff/volunteers follow rigid COVID precautions. (masks; sanitizing; temperature taking; gloves; distancing, etc.) This applies to any Lenten fish fry dinners and Stations of the Cross soup suppers. You CANNOT host these inside the parish hall; all items must only be prepared for parishioners to take the items to their homes.
Church Opening starts on Feb. 13
Bishop Alberto Rojas acting on the Supreme Court decision regarding the opening of the Churches for public worship has instructed all the Parishes in the Diocese to open the Churches for public worship.
Our Church in Dunlap will be opened for public worship starting Saturday (2/13) at 4:00 pm Mass. I am adding Mass participants to 150 this weekend only. All Masses in person will be done inside the Church with a limit of 25% of the total seating capacity. The resumption of the original 8 Masses during weekends will be deferred this time considering of the time constraint for cleaning/sanitizing the pews.
El obispo Alberto Rojas, actuando sobre la decisión del Tribunal Supremo sobre la apertura de las Iglesias al culto público, ha dado instrucciones a todas las parroquias de la Diócesis para que abran las Iglesias al culto público.
Nuestra Iglesia en Dunlap estará abierta para el culto público a partir del sábado (13/2) a las 4:00 pm Misa. Estoy agregando a 150 participantes de la Misa solo este fin de semana. Todas las misas en persona se realizarán dentro de la Iglesia con un límite del 25% del aforo total. La reanudación de las 8 misas originales durante los fines de semana se aplazará esta vez teniendo en cuenta la limitación de tiempo para limpiar / desinfectar las bancas después de cada misa.
PLEASE TAKE NOTE!
Even though we are opening our Church for public worship, we have to be more stringent in applying the directives. These are: Registration for weekend Mass attendance still being imposed for contact tracing; 6-foot distance will always be observed except those who are living in the same household; wearing of face mask is always be a requirement except those children under 4 years old; hand sanitizers are always available before entering and leaving the Church; temperature scan is still necessary before entering the Church. Church goers need to strictly follow the volunteers' instructions in coming to Church. - ALL THESE ARE NON-NEGOTIABLE! For your protection and the protection of your loved ones. WELCOME BACK TO OUR CHURCH!
¡POR FAVOR TOME NOTA!
Aunque estamos abriendo nuestra Iglesia al culto público, tenemos que ser más estrictos al aplicar las directivas. Estos son: El registro para la asistencia a misa los fines de semana todavía se impone para el rastreo de contactos; Siempre se observará una distancia de 6 pies excepto aquellos que vivan en el mismo hogar; el uso de mascarilla es siempre un requisito excepto los niños menores de 4 años; los desinfectantes de manos siempre están disponibles antes de entrar y salir de la Iglesia; El escaneo de temperatura todavía es necesario antes de ingresar a la Iglesia. Los asistentes a la iglesia deben seguir estrictamente las instrucciones de los voluntarios para asistir a la iglesia. - ¡TODOS ESTOS SON NO NEGOCIABLES!

To accompany the young in their pursuit of happiness and to defend the sanctity of married life and families as the domestic Church where vocation to the priesthood and religious life flourish.
