    Important Mass Schedule Announcement from Father Al

    September 8, 2017

    Dear Friends,

    Please note that ALL Sunday Masses, 9/9 and 9/10, are cancelled. The police have informed our staff that when the winds exceed a certain speed, the RT 100 Bridge is shut down. We are expecting strong winds and heavy rain this Saturday evening, so we are cancelling Masses as a precautionary measure.

    Our Bishop has given Pastors the pastoral discretion to dispense parishioners from this Sunday’s Obligation due to the potentially very dangerous travel conditions. I hereby grant to you that dispensation. Amen.

    All of you remain in my heart and prayers. May the Good Lord hold you in the palm of His hand and protect you from all harm.

    Love and Prayers,

    Father Al Esposito
    Santa Maria del Mar Catholic Church
