Governor Newsom gives California COVID-19 update:

My Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I hope you and your family are all well and I am sorry to have to deliver this message. We had all hoped the pandemic was behind us and that we were beginning to return to normal. Unfortunately, this is not the case. I am sorry to inform you Governor Newson this morning asked that we no longer hold indoor church services. 

Therefore, at St. Bede, we have had to close the church again and will no longer be able to celebrate the Mass together either the 8:10 AM weekday or any of our Sunday Masses. Please do not be discouraged. While this is definitely a step back in our recovery, I pray it will be short lived and we will soon return to some form of normalcy.

We will continue to live stream our 8:10 AM weekday Masses and our 11:00 AM Sunday Mass on our website and from You Tube. Since our outside areas are safer for all, I will also continue to distribute Communion from the east driveway between 12:30 PM and 1:30 PM Sundays.

I now ask that we all pray for each other, our families, those around us, for our country and our world and that life as we know it and love it returns to normal soon. You remain in my prayers and hope I do in yours.

With blessings to all,
