Dear Catholic School Community,

Today, Governor Gavin Newsom announced a new stay-at-home mandate for California, based upon hospital capacity in five regions of the state. Hospital ICU capacity falling below 15% will trigger a stay-at-home order which will remain in effect for 3 weeks, or until such time as sufficient hospital capacity becomes available. Under this plan, the state will not require schools that have resumed on-campus, in-person learning to move to distance learning; as such, schools of the Diocese of Sacramento may continue to offer in-person learning. You can read more about the new order at https://covid19.ca.gov

We must remain vigilant and steadfast in caring for one another, especially for the sake of the most vulnerable among us.

Dear Friends in Christ:

I have directed the pastors in parishes that are located in “purple tier” counties to offer Mass and provide to the Faithful the opportunity to attend virtually, either by live-steaming or other visual technology starting this Sunday, November 15, 2020, the Thirty-Third Sunday of Ordinary Time. Pastors presently offering Mass outdoors may continue to do so, weather permitting.
