BISHOP OF ORANGE KEVIN VANN, IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE CHURCH CANON LAW #85 AND #90, DISPENSES ALL FAITHFUL FROM ATTENDING MASS ON SUNDAYS AND HOLY DAYS OF OBLIGATION “UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE”.
PLEASE KEEP PRAYING TO ASK THE BLESSED MOTHER MARY, ST. JOSEPH, ST. CECILIA AND ALL SAINTS TO INTERCEDE FOR ALL SCIENTISTS AND DOCTORS TO QUICKLY FIND OUT THE VACCINE AGAINST THE COVID-19 VIRUS AND TO BEG OUR TRIUNE GOD TO END THIS VIRUS.
THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH FOR HELPING US DURING THIS PREVENTATIVE PERIOD BY MAILING TO THE OFFICE OR GIVING YOUR SUNDAY DONATIONS ONLINE.
The below is a statement that explains about “dispensation” and our personal responsibility in regards to the serious obligation, excerpted from our Diocese of Orange: “While this discipline of penance and fasting is serious, it no longer binds one under pain of grave sin. For a sufficiently good reason (e.g., a special family celebration, an ethnic festival, Lunar New Year, etc.), one may dispense oneself from this serious obligation and may legitimately substitute another day of the week to fulfill this penance. It is for this reason, that there is no need for a specific ‘dispensation’ from the Bishop, lifting the penance for these days.”
Please consider making Your Sacrificial-Gift to support our St. Cecilia Parish’s Capital Campaign to build our new building or parish ongoing operation fund.

May God bless you and your family abundantly!

Our wonderful school is accepting applications. For more information or to download the application, please visit www.morethanschool.org. Applications are also available in the school office.
Our pastor Fr. Bao’s official church e-mail address is “firstname.lastname@example.org” and official phone number is “714-544-3250”. Be assured that Fr. Bao HAS NEVER E-MAILED, TEXTED OR CALLED ANY OF OUR PARISHIONERS to ask or to borrow money under any forms, such as scratching the back of the iTunes gift cards to reveal the pin code, taking a snap shot of the code and attaching the picture to scammers. You may wish to reply back to the scammers a short note to ask them to stop and indicate that “God knows their trick very well. Doing wrong is bad. Staying in the wrong is worse.” Then you block both the scammers’ e-mail address and text number. We pray that the scammers quickly amend their lives and live the rest of their lives better for Eternity, and may God forgive them.
