Due to an increase in COVID-19 cases in the state of California, the County of San Diego is requiring that all places of worship discontinue indoor religious services at this time.  

Outdoor Mass will take place in the courtyard in front of the Church.  

  • Please bring your own chair.

  • Please wear a mask at all times on Church property.

  • Please maintain social distancing.  Choose a seat in the courtyard that is at least 6 feet away from all other groups.

The 6pm outdoor Mass time is an effort to make Mass as accessible and comfortable as possible for all those able to attend. 


All Catholics are still dispensed from the obligation to attend Sunday and holy day Masses.  If you are vulnerable due to age or health, we ask that you please stay home and stay safe.  

We appreciate your patience as we do our best to keep everyone safe and reverently celebrate Mass.
