As San Mateo County continues to be in the purple tier on the State of California monitoring system which necessitates outdoor Masses only and rain is forecast for the weekend, we have devised a “good weather plan” and a “rainy day plan” for Masses.
Good Weather Plan
Mass will be celebrated outside in the Church parking lot on Sunday at 9:45 am. Masks are required. Bring your own chairs. There are chalk circles on the ground which are at least 6 feet apart. Please select a circle for your household to sit within to maintain physical distance from other households. Mass will be livestreamed to our YouTube channel Live Streams from St. Matthias in Redwood City.
Rainy Day Plan
Mass will be celebrated outside in the Church parking lot on Sunday at 9:45 am. Parishioners will be invited to park facing the Preschool building. Ushers will be available to guide you. At the time of Communion, should you wish to receive you will be asked to get out of your car with umbrellas to receive from the Communion minister. Masses will be livestreamed to our YouTube channel Live Streams from St. Matthias in Redwood City.
St. Matthias will celebrate the following Masses for Christmas & New Year’s Day
Christmas Eve – Thursday, December 24th at 4:00 pm
Christmas Day – Friday, December 25th at 10:00 am
Solemnity of Mary – Friday, January 1st 10:00 am
Parishioners are required to make reservations https://www.eventbrite.com/o/st-matthias-church-12029684434
Although we don’t have a maximum attendance capacity at outdoor Masses, taking reservations gives us your contact information and allows us to communicate any last minute changes.
