Update: Tuesday, February 9, 2021
On Friday, Feb 5th, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it was unconstitutional for the State of California to prohibit indoor worship. As a result, the State has made a change to it’s monitoring system allowing indoor worship in the purple tier, at 25% of a buildings’ capacity. This means that St. Matthias will resume the Saturday 5:00 pm Mass inside the Church starting on Saturday, February 13th. All the previous COVID protocols will be in place, i.e. check-in attendance for contact tracing, assigned seating for parishioners to maintain at least 6ft distance between households, mandatory masks, hand sanitizer, open windows and doors for air flow, and wiping down seating areas at the end of Mass. We will also continue to celebrate the Sunday 9:45 am Mass outdoors.
