We are more than happy to help families who would like to sit together. (9:00 Mass only) Please remember that the phone is very sensitive to noise and when we move or drag our own chairs, it can interfere with the sound on the Live Stream.  Children must be accompanied by an adult to use the restroom in order to ensure that the restroom is properly sanitized. **This weekend, however, our bathroom is not available to us. As you saw walking in, we have an open trench with yellow caution tape around  it because of a gas leak. We are waiting for an inspection in order to close up the trench and we will have the use of the bathroom next weekend. We apologize for this inconvenience.***  The directives from our Bishops for Social Distance & Masks are still the same.  1. You will be directed by an Usher during Holy Communion.  2.

GREETING FOR THE TWENTY- FIRST  SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME .   22 - 23 AUG 20
Please remember that even though we’re out here on the patio, we still want to maintain a respectful silence and be conscious of those trying to pray quietly before Mass.  As we’ve been saying, the video picks up our voices and movements such as our chairs scraping on the concrete, etc. If you have to move your chair, please pick up and place it back down quietly. The phone is very sensitive to noise and we should be aware that this is very distracting to those who are watching the live stream. So, let’s all be conscious of the noises we make without even realizing it.  This weekend we celebrate The Twenty-First Sunday in Ordinary Time with our celebrant Fr. Eliseus and we thank & praise God that we can be here worshiping together.  Remember, that the directives from our Bishops are still the same as they  were inside the Church.  When it is time for Holy Communion, remember that we must receive IN THE HAND ONLY and please remember to use your hand sanitizer before you leave your seat. The Ushers will direct you, one side at a time, as they did inside the Church. The Ushers will also dismiss us at the end of Mass in the same way.

GREETING FOR THE FIFTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME 11-12 JULY 20
Please remember that even though things are a little different, we still want to maintain a respectful silence and be conscious of those trying to pray quietly before Mass.  ​We continue to not have Missals or anything else in the pews.  If you don't already have the Laudate App on your phone to follow along with the Mass, it is an alternative to use since we don't have Missals right now.  The link for the Laudate App is  on the website.    If any of you would like to have a Missal, we do have them in the office.  Father Eliseus has decided that if you have picked up a Missal and would to use it at Mass, please make sure that you put your name on it and take it back home with you.    As directed by the Bishop, masks must be worn throughout the Mass except for receiving Communion. There will not be an Entrance Procession and Father will enter from the Sacristy.  There will not be a Sign of Peace and we will not have any music.  There will also not be a Recessional Procession and Father will go right into the Sacristy at the end of Mass.  We also cannot, at this time remain for private devotions after Mass.  If you must leave the church to use the restroom during Mass, there are signs posted in the restroom for proper sanitization as you leave.  PLEASE DO NOT LET your children go to the restroom alone.  Children 16 yrs. old and younger MUST BE accompanied by an adult in order to sanitize properly as you leave. When it is time for Communion, remember that Communion is IN THE HAND ONLY.  Please remember to use your hand sanitizer before you leave your pew for Communion.  The Ushers will come to your pew, one side at a time, to direct you to stand on the yellow strips in the center aisle in order to keep Social Distance.  You should keep your mask on until you get to Father and remove it in order to place the Sacred Host in your mouth, then replace your mask and move aside to return to your seat.   At the end of Mass, the Ushers will dismiss you pew by pew to avoid any loitering outside.  Please be patient as you wait for your pew to be dismissed.  And, of course, there will not be any Hospitality.  Please remember not to touch or kiss the statues on your way out of the Church. ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE FIFTEENTH SUNDAY IN  ORDINARY TIME.  11-12 JULY 20 As we said in the Greeting, we cannot at this time, remain for private devotion after Mass.  Please remember not to touch or kiss the statues as you leave and please do not linger outside.  Unfortunately, Father is still not able to be out front to greet anyone.   Until the restrictions are lightened up we continue to not have bulletins.  Please remember to continue to bring your own personal hand sanitizer to use just before Holy Communion.  Our website has updates from the Diocese from time to time so, remember to keep checking our website often. Our Thrift Shop Re-opened on Monday, June 15th. The hours are Monday & Thursday from 10 - 2 and Tuesday & Wednesday from 9 - 2.  However, they are in reed of 2-3 more volunteers to commit to work one day a week.  Our Thrift Shop has lost 4 of the 12 workers they had.  For safety reasons, there must be at least two people there each day.  If one of them cannot be there, they are not able to open for that day.  If they are not able to recruit more volunteers, they will have to consider closing again. The Thrift Shop is following the same protocol as the Church.  Masks are required and temperatures will be taken.  There is a table outside for those of you who are just dropping of donations.  Our Thrift Shop has been in operation and providing income for Blessed Sacrament Church for over 40 years.  It would be a shame to have to close it down.  Scrip cards are available at the office during the work week.  We still cannot, at this time, sell them on the patio after the Masses.  Please call ahead to be sure someone is in the office.  There are always people at the office on Monday mornings who can sell Scrip to you.  You can also purchase Scrip through our Blessed Sacrament website.  As of last Monday, July 6th, we began our Parish Office Summer hours which are Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 1:00 pm through August 31st.   If any of you would like to donate to the Retired Priests and or Religious Fund, we will not be taking up a collection, but you can go to our Blessed Sacrament website and click on the link.  If any of you know of anyone who is in need of food, please have them contact Astrid Johnson at 760-367-6144 for assistance.   You may have noticed that we prayed for the Repose of the Soul of Fr. Mike McNally in the Prayer Intentions.  Fr. Mike passed away on July 4th.  He was 91 years old and he served the people of God as a priest for 61 years.  Many of those years he was our Pastor here at Blessed Sacrament.  He will be missed by many of us.  Please keep his family and his soul in your prayers.   When you go to our Blessed Sacrament website, you'll see a link that will take you to the letter from Bishop Barns regarding Father Mike's priestly life and another link with information about Fr. Mike's services as well as a place to write a memory you may have of him.   We now have a white mailbox on the wall to the right as you enter the church.  This mailbox is designed specifically for private communication or suggestions that will go directly to Father Eliseus.  Father is the only one with a key for this mailbox.  Whatever you put in this mailbox will remain strictly between you and Father Eliseus.  After the Final Blessing, we will need about 6 people to help us sanitize befor the next Mass.  If you can stay to help, please let one of the ushers know as you leave.   MASS INTENTIONS FOR THE FIFTEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME, 11-12 JULY 20 1.  For the safety of our service men & women abroad, for civil servants who protect us and keep us safe and for all who live with war and violence.   2.
