  • ´╗┐CHURCHES OPEN. Saint John’s Chapel will be open to the public on weekdays from 8 AM to 6 PM and Sundays from 8 AM to 6 PM, and Saint Thomas Church will be open to the public from 9 AM to 12 Noon and Sundays from 8 AM to 2 PM. Visitors are asked to keep apart and not to congregate in groups of more than 10 persons. During this time there will be no religious services such as adoration as these are likely to attract more than 10 people. Please know that this may change at any time. Keep in mind that we are not able to bring Holy Communion to any people at this time, including the sick and homebound.
  • OFFERTORY/ONLINE GIVING. With no collection we rely totally on any contribution you send. We ask you to support our parishes if you can. We rely on our Sunday collections to do our work. You may send envelopes or make a donation online. This is an ideal time to join online giving!

  • CONFESSIONS. Confessions will be available in English and Spanish at Saint John’s Church on Wednesday evenings from 6:30 PM until 8:00 PM (upper church) and Friday from 6:00 to 7:00 PM (chapel) and on Mondays in English and Portuguese from 6:30 to 8 PM at St Thomas, in the sacristy.
  • ANOINTING OF THE SICK. Please let us know if you or anyone you know is seriously ill and/or facing surgery by calling our parish. If a person is in immediate danger of death, please call 911 for medical assistance and then call us, using the emergency call option on our phone menu. All hospitals and nursing homes have contact information for calling a priest for anointing in case of danger of death.
  • SCHEDULED SACRAMENTS: In light of the current situation we are not publicly celebrating sacraments such as baptisms and first holy communions in groups until it is considered safe to do so since these usually involve numbers of people beyond 10. It is likely that scheduled baptisms and first holy communions will need to be delayed. We will be needed to wait and see if our scheduled parish confirmations will be delayed. Likewise, we may need to reschedule weddings. If you have a wedding planned with us, please be in touch which the priest or deacon who is preparing you for updates. Funerals are not be celebrated publicly; arrangements for a private funeral service will be made through the funeral home. At this time we do not know whether ordination to the priesthood will be postponed; our celebration of Masses with our new priests will depend on this.
  • OTHER PARISH ACTIVTIES. All parish activities that take place in parish buildings have been postponed until further notice. Our parish buildings will be closed until further notice for all ordinary parish business. This includes our thrift stores. Essential services such as providing food and provisions are being managed by our Saint Vincent de Paul Societies and the Saint John’s Outreach program.
  • SCHEDULING EVENTS. If you need to schedule an event in one of our parish facilities, we are not able to confirm any such activity at this time. You may request a space for a particular time and date but the use of that space will be permitted only after current restrictions are lifted.
