Excerpt from Homily July 8, 2020
“To seek the face of God is an assurance that our journey through this world will end well. It is an exodus towards the Promised Land, our heavenly home. The face of God is our destination and the guiding star that helps us not to lose our way… This quest is fundamental for the life of every believer, for we have come to realize that our ultimate goal in life is the encounter with God.” Pope Francis

SAN SEBASTIAN SCHEDULE has returned to our regular weekend schedule. See below for complete listings.
AT ALL MASSES - Seating within the church will be limited to 150 due to social distancing requirements. Mass will open 30 minutes before the scheduled mass time. This will give us time to clean between masses. Everyone attending mass must bring a mask or face covering and wear it for the entire mass. Please bring hand sanitizer for your use. Communion will be host only and must be received in the hand without gloves.
Please keep in mind that Bishop Estévez has indefinitely dispensed the faithful from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice. Those who are most at risk of serious infection or illness, are sick or have been exposed to the illness, as well as their caregivers, are strongly encouraged to stay home and participate in live-streamed or televised Masses. We will continue to post the mass each weekend. If you have health concerns or any doubts, please continue to stay home.

Racism Not a Thing of the Past
U.S. Bishops: Racism not a thing of the past - Saying they are “broken-hearted, sickened, and outraged to watch another video of an African American man being killed before our very eyes”, leaders of the USCCB call for the “real and present danger” of racism to be met head on.

In the absence of Mass and the Eucharist, the faithful are encouraged to make a "Spiritual Communion" through the prayer of the Most Holy Redeemer (Anima Christi), the prayer of Self-Offering (Suscipe), or by praying the prayer below:
I believe that You
are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love You above all things,
and I desire to receive You into my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment
receive You sacramentally,
come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as if You were already there
and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen
