CHANGE IN PROTOCOLS:
Due to the substantial spikes in Covid-19 virus transmission, along with substantially increased critical hospital census numbers, the Office of the Bishop of the Diocese of Tucson has issued a diocesan wide change in the protocols for public worship and church operations. Here at St. Anthony’s, the following protocols will be EFFECTIVE from January 8th thru February 5th of the present year, namely:.
MASSES, BAPTISMS & FUNERALS:
Both Sunday Vigil and Sunday INDOOR Masses or gatherings are suspended. These Masses will be held in the PARKING LOT again.
Funerals and weddings may be celebrated indoors but are limited to a maximum of 25 persons; baptisms are limited to a maximum of ten persons. No gatherings before or following these celebrations are allowed on parish or church property.
Parking Lot Mass Schedule:
SATURDAY – 4:00 PM
SUNDAY – 8:00AM, 10:00AM, 12:00PM (Spanish)
(Monday – Friday) – 12:00PM (private)
Saturday (2:30PM – 3:30PM)
Holy communion will be served to you as you stepped out of your vehicles. We will also serve holy communion in the parking lot for ten minutes to those who attended the Holy Mass online on the following:
Daily (Monday – Friday) – 12:45PM
Saturday – 5:00PM
Sunday – 9:00AM
Those people identified by the CDC as “high risks” are encouraged to participate our communal worship virtually.
All Masses will be livestreamed via Parish Facebook Live. PLEASE
SHARE it to your FB families and friends so that more people will be reached by our digital ministry.
The Parish Office remains closed to the public but we are available to answer your calls at (520) 836-0601. For emergency needs please call Fr. Ariel (520) 678-5920 or Fr. Peter (520) 705-6783.
I appreciate your understanding and cooperation. In the words of Bishop Weisenburger: “A suspension of four weeks from indoor liturgies also allows us to stand in solidarity with those who are critically ill, healthcare workers, the unemployed, those grieving the loss of loved ones, and all those whose lives have been far more substantially altered.”
Fr. Ariel Lustan, Pastor
