The Arise Prayer
Gracious God and Father,
we enter into your presence
realizing you know us better
than we know ourselves.
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
Liberate us from all that keeps us
Heal us from every form
of sin and violence.
Transform us to live your Word
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
calling us to arise together in Christ
to celebrate the fullness of life.

Bishop Soto has granted a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday for those members of the Faithful who are sixty years of age and older as well as those suffering vulnerable health conditions.
Due to new instructions provided by State and local public health officials, this decree is now extended to include all members of the Catholic Faithful from the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday. This dispensation will continue until further notice.
What is St. James doing to prevent the potential spreading of both of the flu and the Corona virus?
We have received memos and have implemented changes from the Bishop and the Office of Worship (see below). With growing concerns about the Corona virus it’s important that we continue to be vigilant about taking precautions against the spread of disease. While the number of cases of people infected with the Corona virus in the U.S. is very small, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH) reports that the incidence of flu and flu-like illnesses is still widespread and at a level requiring we do everything reasonably possible to mitigate the spread of infection.
The obligation to attend Mass on Sunday and other Holy Days does not apply to those who are sick. If you are sick, stay home and take of yourself.
If you need Hand Sanitizer we will be putting it out on small tables in the foyer as long as we have a supply of it. If you have concerns or questions please call the Pastoral Offices at 530-756-3636.
In order to protect the health and well-being of everyone, we wish to remind you of the following directives:
The use of the Communion cup is suspended temporarily.
Receive the Body of Christ in the hand (although receiving on the tongue is permitted)
Do not hold hands during the Our Father.
Effective immediately, Bishop Soto instructs the presiders and deacons at Mass to refrain from inviting the assembly to exchange the sign of peace.
After the priest says “The Peace of the Lord be with you always” and the assembly responds “And with your Spirit” he should proceed directly to the fraction rite.
This will remain in effect until further notice.
Extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion must cleanse their hands with an alcohol-based antiseptic before and after administering Holy Communion. This also applies to those who take Holy Communion to the home-bound.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time. And pray for those who are sick. The administration of Holy Communion in both kinds will resume as soon as the Bishop deems it safe and prudent to do so.
