Returning to Mass online and Drive-In with our community
Fr Martin, the Parish staff, and many volunteers, have worked hard to meet Diocesan and State guidelines in order to celebrate Mass. We are using a reservation system to accommodate as many people as possible at our public Mass celebration. To reserve a spot for the upcoming weekend Drive-In Mass, Our Divine Savior Parishioners can call the reservation number Monday-Friday. The number to call is 530 521-6202. This is the only number you will be able to call to reserve your spot. The office is not able to reserve spots for Mass.
Here are some things you can expect:
- Mass will be livestreamed inside the church Saturday at 5PM and Sunday at 10AM.
- Drive-In Mass to receive communion will be available by reservation per health and safety guidelines.
- Drive-In Mass guidelines can be found by clicking here
- Please plan your timing to include check-in as you arrive.
More details will be added to these temporary accommodations as they become necessary and are confirmed. We want to thank everyone for their patience and understanding. We anticipate adjustments to be necessary. Celebrating Mass under the State required guidelines is different...but the good news is that God, our faith, and the Eucharist are not. Thanks be to God!
While many still will not be gathering together to celebrate Mass there is much we can do for our personal faith and for the Church. Bishop Soto states in his letter to the people on March 17th, "This public health emergency should make us reconsider the kind of prayer, fasting, abstinence, and charity needed for ourselves as well as the Church." Please read the full contents of Bishop Soto's letter to the people by clicking HERE. Links to virtual Mass can be found on our Social Media page.
In order to protect our Parish staff and community members, our office will remain closed and continue serving all of your needs via email and phone for the time being. You can reach the front office staff at [email protected] or by calling (530) 343-4248.
Be assured your Parish community is praying for you daily. The staff meets daily to pray for the needs of our Parish members. Let us know how we can more specifically pray for you here by filling out this prayer request. The words “Be Not Afraid” are written 365 times in the Bible. That’s one for every day of the year. The fact that God has reminded us continuously throughout Sacred Scripture to have no fear and trust in Him brings great comfort to us.
What can you do? Pray.
Please join us in prayer for the health and safety of all.
Abbey of our Lady of New Clairvaux is closed to the public until further notice
