3. Together In Mission: the goal assigned for St. Bridget Chinese Catholic Church this year is $11,982. We will achieve this goal by second collections. As of 3/15/20, we collected $9,130. Thank you for your generosity.

Archbishop Gomez has established the following liturgical guidelines, to be followed until further notice:

We can view Mass or other services via livestream. The weekday and Sunday Masses will be livestreamed from the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels via the LA Catholics Facebook page, Or just go to Our Lady of Angels web site. The Archbishop will celebrate the liturgies of the Sacred Paschal Triduum at the Cathedral, which will also be livestreamed.
1. Parish churches are to be closed to the public effective March 24, 2020 until April 19, 2020 (inclusive), or until further notice. Faithfuls are encouraged to keep the Lord’s Day holy. Some ways to this include: reading the Gospels, praying with their families and to join the sacrifice of the Mass by making an act of spiritual communion.
2. Parishes are to cancel all Lenten penance services and suspend all regularly scheduled confession times.
3. In times that the faithful are unable to attend individual Reconciliation, Pope Francis in his March 20, 2020 homily, reminds us of the Church’s teaching on Perfect Contrition. Such contrition arises when the penitent expresses a love of God above all else, the sincere desire for forgiveness, and firm resolution to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation as soon as possible when available. Perfect Contrition obtains the forgiveness of sins, both venial and mortal. (cf. Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC) 1452)
4. Faithful are reminded of their duty to confess serious sins once a year, and Code of Canon Law does not specify a season to do so (cf. 989).
5. Holy Thursday Mass, Good Friday prayer service and Easter Vigil Mass will be livestreamed.
