Update Friday, May 14, 2021

The Diocese of Orange has issued the following statement:

“Per the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) new guidelines, fully vaccinated people are not required to wear a mask for Mass. However, those who are not fully vaccinated, including children, are still asked to wear a mask to ensure the health of all our parishioners.”.

Fully vaccinated means they have had both doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for at least two weeks.

Orange County is still in the Orange Tier and indoor occupancy is still restricted at 50%.

Also, if you are not fully vaccinated, please keep the following in mind:

  • Masks and 3 feet of social distancing required—keep at least one chair open between family groups

  • Please do not sit directly in front or behind someone—try to stagger your seating

  • Patio available for overflow—bring your own chair

  • For those who aren’t ready to come back in person, most Masses will continue to be livestreamed

Individual prayer is available only in the Blessed Sacrament Chapel Monday – Friday from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm and Saturday from 7:00 am – 7:00 pm. Please refer to our social media often for updates.

Our Bishop’s dispensation still applies. If you are over 65, or if you have an underlying health condition, or if you are truly afraid of catching the virus, you are not obligated, but you are always welcome to attend Mass in person. If you think you are sick, especially if you think you may have COVID-19 or have been exposed to someone who tested positive, please join us via livestream.

Please know that we have all possible safety measures in place and look forward to seeing you all back at St. Thomas More.

We ask for your cooperation and patience as we navigate the directives in response to the pandemic. Even during these challenging times, we continue to worship our Lord as a faith-filled community.
