Purple Tier Update:

Effective Sunday, November 20th, all Masses with a congregation will be celebrated with the attendees seated or standing outside in front of the main doors of the church. The “sanctuary area” will be the glass vestibule. A limited number of socially-distanced chairs will be provided and these will be sanitized regularly. We ask that chairs be kept for those who most need to sit. Others may stand or bring their own chairs. 

All must wear masks over their nose and mouth.  All must stand or sit at least six feet from people not in their own household. We continue to encourage those who over 65, who are otherwise vulnerable or who have a household member who is over 65 or vulnerable to avail themselves of the livestream rather than coming in person.

Our Masses schedule from 11/21/20:

Saturday: 4:30 pm *LIVESTREAM ONLY* on Facebook (For technical reasons, this Mass will be celebrated inside the church for now, so in-person attendance is not permitted.)

Sunday: 7:30am, 9:00am, 10:30am, 12:00pm

Daily Masses: Monday through Friday 8:45 am

Confessions will continue to be heard outside at 9:00am on Saturday (weather permitting) or by appointment.


Monsignor Gerard Brady, RIP

Monsignor Brady, former Pastor of St. Thomas Aquinas parish, Napa, passed away today, Tuesday, December 1, at his residence at Saint Bernard’s Parish, Eureka.
From Bishop Vasa:
"He spent his life conscientiously serving God and Church. He will be missed especially by the Humboldt County Community which he dearly loved and where he chose to live following
his retirement in 2013. Monsignor was born on November 12, 1933 and was baptized at Our Lady of Lourdes parish in Oakland, California. He attended St. Joseph’s College Seminary in Mountain View and later St. Patrick’s Seminary in Menlo Park.
He was ordained to the priesthood on June 13, 1959 for the Archdiocese of San Francisco and was incardinated into Santa Rosa upon creation of this new diocese in 1962. His ministry was rich and broad as he ministered to the People of God in Napa, Sonoma, Humboldt, and Del Norte Counties.
He also served as an army chaplain for three years to minister to the needs of our armed forces.
Funeral arrangements are
pending. He expressed a desire to be buried in Humboldt County.
May he rest in peace."

Registration for RCIA and Adult Confirmation

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) and Adult Confirmation Registration

Are you or someone you know interested in joining the Catholic Church? The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) is the Catholic Church’s way of welcoming new members. RCIA is much more than a program, it is a learning and loving process in which conversion of the heart brings one to Jesus Christ.

Were you baptized but did not receive First Communion or Confirmation? Have you been away, and want to come back to the Church and not sure how? Adult Confirmation is available for adults who would like to receive the sacraments of First Communion and/or Confirmation.

If you are an adult and are interested in registering for the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA), please click here:
