Archbishop Gustavo issues decree regarding changes impacting Catholic parishes and schools in the archdiocese in response to COVID-19

Conscious of my duty to prudently lead the Christian faithful of the Archdiocese of San Antonio, and in light of new information from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and local and state health officials regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus), and for the good of the Christian faithful and our community, I Decree that:

1) The Sunday Mass obligation is hereby dispensed for all Catholics effective immediately. Public Masses in parishes and other chapels shall be suspended starting this weekend of March 14-15, except for small groups at the discretion of the pastor, such as daily Mass. Presiding at wedding liturgies and quinceaneras is at the discretion of the pastor. We must bury the dead, and funeral services will still take place, with awareness of congregation size. Whenever possible churches will be kept open during the daytime for private prayer and Eucharistic Adoration.

2) All non-essential gatherings at parishes for the rest of March are cancelled or postponed, pending further notice. This includes but is not limited to previously-scheduled Confirmation ceremonies, and religious education classes. Communication on Catholic schools will follow.

3) We are advising against home visits at this time, but in situations of serious pastoral necessity these decisions need to be made on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the pastor, responding to the best of their abilities to these requests. We must also follow hospital and nursing home guidelines regarding access as well.

4) I encourage viewing and participating in the daily and Sunday Masses via CTSA, other television outlets or through archdiocesan electronic media. Other devotions, such as perhaps praying the daily rosary or Divine Mercy Chaplet, are most appropriate during this time.

5) I will make a determination in consultation with archdiocesan leadership, health officials, and civil authorities regarding extending any of the above by March 31.

This Decree is effective immediately and remains in effect until revoked.



4 things you can do for yourself and others:
(1) Be considerate of those who are sad.
(2) Express gratitude to those who serve the public.
(3) Control the complaining side of your character.
(4) Do something kind for another and refuse to accept anything in return. 

REMINDER ON PARKING PRECAUTIONS
We continue to be grateful for your participation at Mass. Some of you drive a good distance to share your time with us. Please be conscious where you park, if at all possible utilize the Parking Lot behind the Church (Parish Hall). Also, please do not park on the street (D’Hanis), this makes it a hazard for through traffic. Thank You !
