Call-Ahead Seating for Weekend of 9/27 is now open.
Please carefully read the following safety directives before registering below.
Spots fill quickly; please RSVP by 8pm Wednesday, 9/23.
The state’s House of Worship Guidelines and Current Statewide Public Health Officer Order temporarily closes all indoor public worship services in counties with ongoing Coronavirus issues. This affects our diocese of which both Riverside and San Bernardino counties remain on the Tier 1 Purple Level per the CDPH (formerly the State's COVID Monitoring List).
As of 9/15, Riverside County has fulfilled the first week of the required two week criteria to move from Tier 1 Purple to Tier 2 Red Level. San Bernardino County remains in Tier 1. Mass will continue to be scheduled outside until directed otherwise by the Diocese and Parish Liturgy Office. Please note that both the neighboring San Diego and Orange Counties were already recently moved to Tier 2 and local parishes may operate under a different set of directives in their respective dioceses.
Due to the summer heat, we will celebrate our liturgies in the morning and evenings in the shaded areas. View Outdoor Mass Schedule
Our bishop has directed us to maintain the temporary 100-Person Max and the Singing/Chanting restrictions during Outdoor Masses to further help mitigate the virus. The Call-Ahead Seating RSVP period will start midnight Sunday of the prior weekend and is expected to fill by end-of-day Wednesday. Thank you for your support 🙏.

St. Catherine's will continue to Livestream the Liturgies of selected Masses. In addition, the reception of the Sacrament of Holy Communion is also available by appointment. In this spirit, our Diocesan Bishop Gerald Barnes has kept in place the temporary dispensation of the obligation to attend Sunday Mass in the Diocese.
The diocese has maintained the maximum attendance occupancy of 100 persons in the worship area during each Mass. We'll continue to safely group families by household and practice social distancing.
We ask that those not already admitted into this space at the start of the liturgy to refrain from entering or gathering around the area to prevent unsafe crowding.
We'll have Mass in the shaded areas but have your personal sun protection gear ready just in case as we cannot guarantee every seating location will be shaded.
For everyone's safety, we cannot allow participants to use their vehicles for seating in the worship area. In addition drinking fountains will remain temporarily closed; so don't forget to bring some water bottles.
As required by state public officials and for everyone's safety, the clergy, congregation, staff and volunteers will wear a Face Cover or Face Shield at all times while on the property.
Please bring your own face cover to wear as these will not be provided.
The Diocese encourages the faithful to sanitize their hands prior to communion. For everyone's safety, all ministers of Holy Communion will sanitize their hands multiple times throughout the liturgy.
We will advise when it will be safe to once again congregate and group with your fellow parish members in the commons areas such as the front plaza, picnic tables, and the parking lot at a later time. For now, please remember to exit the worship area when instructed after Mass and continue to connect with each other remotely.
We will recite all propers, commons, and prayers in Mass going forward until further notice, and our Music Ministry will continue to provide instrumental music throughout the liturgy, but on your way to church, tune in and sing together in praise safely with your household.
After each Mass, the bathrooms and other common areas of the worship area will be cleaned and sanitized. In addition, we're always looking for helping hands to haul the equipment, tables and stands to/from the worship area.
The parish will continue to Broadcast Online Livestreams of Masses that you can watch from the safety of your home if you are battling health conditions. In addition, the reception of the Sacrament of Holy Communion is also available by appointment.
This will allow staff and the ushers to properly check you in and seat your family. We will open all reserved seating to any Walk-In's at 10 minutes prior to Mass.
