3/17: Letter from our Pastor
March 17, 2020
My Dear Parishioners,
Blessings to you! The current spread of the Corona Virus has tremendously affected our daily lives. The government officials and leaders in our communities have made hard choices and painful decisions in an attempt to keep us safe. Taking into considerations the current public health emergency situation, our Archbishop José H. Gomez has temporarily suspended public celebration of the Mass in our Archdiocese effective March 17, 2020 until March 29, 2020, or otherwise extended. Our Archbishop has stressed that this decision was “not made lightly,” and that it was made after “much prayer and reflection” and in consultation with the Archdiocese’s auxiliary bishops, Council of Priests, lay advisors, and government and public health officials.
In lieu of this, our Parish weekend and weekday Masses are suspended until March 29, 2020, or otherwise extended. However, we will live stream our own Parish Mass, daily at 8:00 am and on Sundays at 9:00 am. You can participate in this Mass from your home via the internet through FACEBOOK LIVE, by visiting this website: facebook.com/stbarnabaslb/ Although you may not receive Holy Communion, you will be making a profound act of spiritual Communion with your Priests and our beloved Parish Community, and more importantly have an opportunity to keep the Lord’s Day Holy.
In addition, our Archdiocese also provides a livestream of Masses from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels daily and on Sunday via Facebook, @lacatholics, (facebook.com/lacatholics/) or visit lacatholics.org/emergency/ The daily Mass (M-F) in English at 12:10 p.m. and the Sunday Masses in English at 10 a.m. and in Spanish at 12:30 p.m. will be livestreamed. For more information on additional Mass broadcasts on TV and radio, visit lacatholics.org/emergency.
For those who could not participate in the Holy Mass via the internet, I strongly encourage you to read the Scripture readings, reflect on it, and pray with your family making an act of spiritual communion with your Priests and our Parish Community. The daily readings are printed in our bulletin and could be accessed on our website: http://www.stbarnabaslb.org. Readings could also be accessed at http://www.usccb.org
Fr. Bernard and I will respond to all the sick calls. However, if it is not a life-threatening situation, kindly wait for a couple of weeks before requesting for a priest. Unless it is an emergency, all baptism schedules are suspended until further notice. If you scheduled a wedding or quinceañera in the coming days, please call the parish office for an important update.
With regards to the Holy Week celebrations, our Archdiocese will issue an update on or before Friday, March 27, 2020. So kindly expect an update on this when it is available. Please know that Fr. Bernard and I are praying for your safety and well-being in our private daily Masses. Kindly pray for us as well. Please be safe and we will see you soon.
Rev. Antony Gaspar
