- Sunday 8:00 a.m. and 10:00 a.m.
The church will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday for private prayer. Please wear a mask, avoid physical contact with others, and observe six feet social distancing.
Due to the recent spike in COVID-19 cases throughout California, Governor Gavin Newsom has once again shut down indoor activity (community prayer) inside of all houses of worship throughout the state.
Outdoor worship is allowed so long as the participants wear a mask (or other face covering), avoid all unnecessary physical contact and maintain a social distancing of at least 6 (six) feet.
We are fortunate to have two covered porticos at All Hallows which will lend themselves to outdoor worship for at least 50 (fifty) parishioners. Both are shaded all day. The south facing portico (opposite the north wall of the church) enjoys a constant, brisk breeze (a sweater or coat is highly recommended if you should choose to sit there.) The west facing portico is sheltered by a band of windows and is more temperate!
For those who prefer warmth, the sunken plaza between the north wall of the church and the south facing portico (where the fountain is located) will provide seating for about 20 (twenty) parishioners. (Here a wide brimmed hat or an umbrella is strongly suggested.)
On both the porticos and plaza, chairs may be moved closer together to accommodate families who are “sheltering together.”
Hand sanitizer and optional temperature taking, as well as a box for Sunday offerings, will be available at the foot of the stairs leading down from La Jolla Scenic Drive, South to the plaza. Ministers of Hospitality will be available to help you find a seat and to answer questions. No date has been given for this shut down to end.
Once again, Bishop Robert McElroy has dispensed the obligation for Catholics in our diocese to attend Sunday Mass until they feel safe to do so!
Our first outdoor Mass will be celebrated at 8:00 a.m. on Friday, July 17th. The church will be open from 7:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. Monday thru Friday for private prayer. Please wear a mask, avoid physical contact with others, and observe six feet social distancing.
God bless you and keep you safe in these unprecedented and challenging times.
