Holy Week

April 6, 2020

My Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ:

We have begun Holy Week, the most sacred time of the Church’s year.  As we recall the life, passion, and death of Jesus Christ, we will, on Easter Sunday, celebrate His resurrection.  We rejoice that the God who became One with us on earth, and who suffered and died for our salvation, rose from the dead to a new life so that we can share in the divinity of the risen Christ.

To all parishioners of St. Paul of the Shipwreck and Our Lady of Lourdes/All Hallows — continue to be inspired in these challenging times by the love and prayers of one another — for we are Church, the body of Christ.  Sadly, we cannot celebrate our Holy Triduum together, but on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday and Easter Sunday, we will stream our liturgical celebrations.  The following are the links for the English and Spanish Masses:

As we continue in this time of crisis, I invite you to remember that we are still in need of your prayers and your financial support.  I urge you to be as generous as possible. You can contribute on line directly to your parish of attendance at this link:  https://sfarchdiocese.org/lifeline

You can mail your contributions to:

I pray that Almighty God will bless all of you in this Holy season; and may good health, much hope, and great love be your experience now and always. 

In the love of the risen Jesus,

Father Dan


COVID-19 Mass Update

Dear Friends in Christ,

Per the archbishop's directive issued late last night, I notify you of the following: until April 7th,

1. All public Masses will be suspended. Priests will celebrate Masses in private for the scheduled Mass intentions.

2. There is no daily mass, and Stations of the Cross on Fridays.

3. Confessions will be held on request. Just call the office to schedule a time.

4. If you want to use the church private prayers let us know are you.

These are difficult times. We need to be careful in observing every precaution and to keep safe. You are all in my prayer. Let us use this difficult time for more prayer, spiritual reading and family bonding.

Thank you.

Fr. Dan Carter
