During these uniquely challenging times, we also are offering St. Mel Moments – a brief daily opportunity to step away from the stress and the fear – to step back, breathe and ground ourselves in faith. St. Mel Moments can be found at www.vimeo.com/stmel as well as our Instagram and Facebook feeds.
Public Celebration of Mass has Resumed
We are happy to announce that St. Mel will hold public Masses, observing strict safety guidelines, beginning with daily Masses on Wednesday June 3 and Sunday Masses on June 7 – the Feast of the Holy Trinity.
Masses at St. Mel and throughout the Los Angeles Archdiocese have been closed to the public since mid-March as part of the Coronavirus lock-down. On May 26, the Archbishop gave the go-ahead to take steps toward reopening – cautiously.
It’s important to note that the archbishop’s dispensation of the Sunday Mass obligation is still in effect and any person who would not feel comfortable or safe attending Mass is not required to attend. In fact, anyone who is not well or is in a high-risk group (such as older people or those with preexisting medical conditions) should NOT yet return to Mass.
If you might be attending an outdoor Mass (Sunday at 9:15 or 11:30) please bring a lawn chair or beach blanket.
Everyone is aware of how important it is to reduce the risk of exposure to the virus.
The St. Mel clergy and staff are confident that we will receive the full cooperation of our parishioners.
One Mass will be available for viewing all day Sunday at www.vimeo.com/stmel.
Beginning June 3rd, public daily Masses will be in the church every Monday through Saturday at 8:15 a.m.
and every Monday through Friday at 5:30 p.m.
Livestreaming of the daily 8:15 Mass will continue on Facebook and at www.vimeo.com/stmel.
