ADLA Suspends Masses (3/16)

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

 

This week—to say the least—has been a challenge to our faith and spirit. However, #WeAreStMo—and just as we embody and live by the maxim of #AllAreWelcome, so too, we meet all the faithful wherever they are. I thank you for your perserverence and composure.

 

We must share with you that as of today (Mar. 16) the Archdiocese of Los Angeles has suspended all Masses amid the current health threat due to COVID-19. You can read the full statement HERE. We affirm Archbishop Gomez: this decision "was not made lightly" and "in consultation with the Archdiocese's auxiliary bishops, Council of Priests, lay advisors, and government and public health officials."

 

At the same time, St. Monica is committed to serving the spiritual, emotional, and liturgical needs of our faithful—while still abiding by the guidelines set forth. For as long as we can sustain, we will continue:

  • livestream of 12:10 p.m. daily Mass - livestream.com/stmonica90403
  • livestream of Sunday Masses at 9:30 a.m. & 5:30 p.m.
  • livestream of our Parish Mission with Fr. Ron Rolheiser, March 16–18
  • confession by appointment (updated 3/24)
  • baptism preparation online
  • faith formation online
  • outreach and pastoral care ministries serving those in vulnerable categories like the elderly and homebound

We are currently evaluating the feasibility of expanded online content such as Stations of the Cross, Lenten Small Groups, Taizé prayer, music events, Lenten retreats, RCIA rites, Palm Sunday, Triduum (Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Vigil), and of course Easter.

 

Our Called to Renew efforts have been paused throughout the Archdiocese and will be extended once we resume.

 

We are continuing to think creatively: how can we continue to remain linked to connect, serve, worship, and grow? If you have ideas—we welcome them! Email and our pastoral staff will respond to every suggestion.

 

St. Monica remains dedicated to the spiritual and emotional well-being of our parishioners. Your care and support ensure we can continue during these challenging times. Make your offertory gift online: stmonica.net/giveWe are so grateful for your generosity, which is so vital to our mission. Thank you!

 

My most profound prayer of gratitude, health, and conviction in these tumultuous times. May God bless you abundantly with the fortitude to continue to live the gospel of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

 

With all God's grace and glory,

Msgr. Lloyd Torgerson

Pastor, St. Monica Catholic Community
