Regarding Religious Education for Youth:

Due to concerns over the spreading of disease, Religious Education classes will be cancelled for
the next several weeks. We will be following the lead of Bishop Vasa and the local schools in this
matter for the safety of our children and our community,
so we do not know when we will resume.

We are committed to helping serve your children in their religious and sacramental preparation.  We
encourage families to spend this time working at home to help children learn their prayers, as well
as learn their faith from their families. As such, we recommend using to supplement
education at home. You can create a free account by signing in under our Cathedral, St. Eugene's in
Santa Rosa; these resources are bilingual.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Kim Farrell at 707-442-2233.
All official Diocesan policy announcements will be posted as soon as promulgated,
on our Diocesan website 'press room' (see main page)

way to get the word out.

b.   This way, whenever the Bishop or a Directive from the Chancery comes out and is posted,
or if someone goes ‘live’, you will get a notification. (you can always hit the share button on a
post, live or otherwise, to send it to all your page ‘followers’. It will show up on their news feed.

As our nation and the world face the crisis surrounding COVID-19, many dioceses have taken the
extraordinary measure to cancel the celebration of public Masses and, in some cases, dispense the
faithful from their Sunday obligation. I would like to share with you the timely information below so that
you can inform the faithful in your diocese where they can access the Daily Mass (both LIVE and at
their convenience via video on demand), Lenten specials and other spiritual programs that will bring
them comfort.     


During this time, we wanted to remind you that EWTN broadcasts the Daily Mass LIVE at 5:00am PT
from Our Lady of the Angels Chapel on the EWTN campus in Irondale, Alabama. It is re-aired at 9:00
am PT and again at 4:00pm PT. You can watch via TV or online via streaming at

You can also listen to the Mass LIVE on the radio, SIRIUS/XM, or listen online at

would like to apologize for postponing our
Corned Beef & Cabbage Dinner
Saturday, March 14 on short notice, but events moved too quickly for us to anticipate it any sooner.

We will reschedule it with plenty of notice and have the Pot O Green raffle drawing at that time.  
We look forward to having a wonderful dinner with our Parish Family at that time.
