Bill Pay is a safe way to add a recurring or one time donation to our parish. If you use Bill Pay, please include a memo if it is not for the Sunday collection; such as building fund, Migrant ministry, St. Vincent dePaul, etc.

Bishop's Announcement

Bishop Jaime Soto has shared a new message to the Faithful about our reopening plans in the Diocese of Sacramento:


"The Catholic community in the Diocese of Sacramento will be able to celebrate the Feast of the Body and Blood of Christ, Corpus Christi, around the sacred altars of their parish churches on Sunday, June 14th. I am lifting the heartbreaking suspension of public celebrations of the Sacrifice of the Mass starting on Monday, June 8th. This will help pastors ready the churches for the glorious Feast of Corpus Christi. Parishes that are prepared to implement all the necessary public health protocols may begin offering Mass with the Faithful on June 8th."


The public guidelines recently shared for resuming public celebrations of the Mass have been updated to reflect our continued work with public health officials. The message to the faithful, a video, and the updated guidelines are available on our website:

 The Arise Prayer


Gracious God and Father,

You know the cares and sufferings

  we carry in our own hearts.


You call us to holiness

  and we trust you to lead us

  together on our journey

  to be a renewed Church,

  for with you all things are possible.


Create us anew in Jesus Christ

  your Son.

Liberate us from all that keeps us

  from you.

Heal us from every form

  of sin and violence.


Transform us to live your Word

  more profoundly.

Awaken us to the sacred;

  rebuild trust among us.

Enliven our parishes;

  reunite our families.


May your Holy Spirit empower us

  to live as a community of love,

  freed to share in your work

  of recreating our world

  and restoring justice.


We believe you are doing

  something new,

  calling us to arise together in Christ

  to celebrate the fullness of life.

ICP Registration

On September 16, the Independent Compensation Program (ICP) will begin accepting registrations. The Diocese of Sacramento is joining those in Los Angeles, Fresno,  Orange, San Bernadino and San Diego in a program that brings compensation and justice to those who were sexually abused as minors by diocesan priests. All claims, regardless of how long ago they may have occurred, will be considered by the program. The ICP is independent, outside the control of any diocese. For more information, including how to submit a claim, please visit www.CaliforniaDiocesesICP.com. Let us always remember to pray for the victims of priest sexual abuse. As their pain is ongoing, so must our prayers for them be.
