GATHER AND REJOICE TOGETHER IN CHRIST
Bishop Kevin Vann has declared Saturday and Sunday, June 12 and 13, as a historic weekend for all parishes of the Diocese of Orange: Gather and Rejoice Together in Christ! With the dispensation from attending Mass on Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation during the pandemic coming to an end, as many already have begun, it is time to attend Mass in person, receive the sacraments and offer praise to God together after months of pandemic isolation.
The faith and courage of all at Christ Cathedral and throughout the diocese have been inspiring. We are grateful for your patience, understanding and continued support during this time. As the cathedral has been open since Palm Sunday for our regular indoor, in person services, we have also reopened the weekend food service on the cathedral plaza. Faith Formation sessions, including Confirmation have resumed and we are preparing for the next season. Many regular parish activities have also resumed.
In celebration of this special weekend, beginning this Saturday, June 12, the parish office, located in the lobby of the Tower of Hope will be fully reopened. The office will be open from 9:00 a.m. until 5:00 p.m. seven days a week. Receptionists will be available to serve you in English, Spanish and Vietnamese.
As we celebrate our full reopening, please join us for Mass this weekend and receive spiritual nourishment and strength through the Body and Blood of Christ.
