New COVID Guidelines /Directrices diocesanas actualizadas de Covid
June 18, 2021
Dear Immaculate Heart of Mary Family,
On June 15th, the California Department of Public Health provided updated guidance pertaining to State and County regulations relaxation of COVID restrictions. Questions have been asked regarding the policies that we will be following.
In response to the latest news, the bishops met and consulted with the Executive Board of the Presbyterial Council and the Board of Deans to further discuss the lifting of restrictions in the Diocese of San Diego. In a letter to all priests, Bishop McElroy provided the following updates:
- All the restrictions on capacity and spacing for worship and all limitations on meetings and social activities are lifted as of June 17, 2021.
- Masks will be optional, recognizing that the CDC recommends the practice of wearing masks for those who have not yet been vaccinated.
- Distribution of the Eucharist will resume on the tongue and will continue in the hand.
- The reintroduction of the shared cup will be determined sometime in the future.
- Alterations in liturgical spaces and practices necessitated by the pandemic can now cease at the discretion of the pastor.
- The collection and the Offertory procession have been reinstated.
- It is recommended that non-family members bringing Eucharist to the sick should be vaccinated.
- The dispensation from the normal obligation to attend Sunday Mass will end on July 1st.
On behalf of the entire parish staff, I want to express my appreciation to all of you who supported us over the last 18 months. Like you, I am looking forward to a bright summer and to resuming the many activities in our Parish, it will take some time, but I know, with the community's help, that we can get back to normal.
