liturgy & worship

Updated 6/11/2021

At this time, all of our liturgies and programming remains online. We know many of you are eager to return to in-person liturgies. We are waiting to see what guidance will come out of state and local governments on June 15. While Covid and personal health is a very real concern for some, it is also true that some folks welcomed the convenience of participating in liturgy at home and we love the new members we have attracted outside the San Diego region. That means we need more technical expertise to manage acoustics and camerawork, and not from the pastor who is doing the work at the altar. We hope to start hybrid in-person/online liturgies in July, but this dependent on acquiring some technical assistance. Bear with us as we figure out how to safely bring us back together again. We all look forward to that day. More information can be found on our online liturgy page

Liturgy and worship is at the center of our community life. 

  • We gather online on Sunday nights at 5pm for mass - which lasts about an hour and has music, readings, a homily, and Eucharist. 
  • On Thursdays at 12:15pm, we offer a more intimate liturgy of word and prayer. 
  • We tend to have special liturgies for major events - Martin Luther King Sunday, PRIDE weekend, the Feast of Mary Magdalene, as well as holidays like Christmas and Easter. 

All are truly welcome at our liturgies.

Our scripture readings come from the Comprehensive Catholic Lectionary,

a project undertaken by Jane Via & Nancy Corran.

  • Our liturgy committee is responsible for the planning of our liturgies. They meet once a month to discuss upcoming liturgies. Meetings are open to all - come see what goes into making our liturgy happen. 
  • While we are gathering online, our music is being pre-recorded. If you'd like to be involved with this, contact our Music Director, Malcolm Twentyman
