Lunar New Year Celebration 2020 新春慶祝



主愛的兄弟姐妹們,

 

主復活的喜樂與你們同在!

 

二零二零年新年的開始,我們遭遇了一位不速之客──新型冠狀病毒,幾乎無處倖免,也引起部分教友的擔心。為了我們每個人的身心健康,特別是我們中文團體的福祉,經與各方的協商,並特別諮詢醫學領域的相關人士之後,主教最終決定我們可以繼續照常舉行新春彌撒和晚宴。

 

他提示我們要做好適當的防護措施,尤其在新春彌撒中,對通常的習慣作一點調整即可,比如在平安禮中以點頭或鞠躬來代替握手和擁抱,也將暫時取消送聖血等。他除向我們保證他的關心和祈禱外,也希望我們都能在平安祥和中,歡慶農歷新年。

 

讓我們把一切都交在天主手中,求主賜給護醫人員健康和智慧,繼續救治所有病人,盡早使瘟疫停止,使所有人早日重回正常的生活。

 

新春快樂,主愛永在!

 

金西滿神父

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

 

I hope this message finds you well. A few parishioners recently expressed their concerns regarding the novel coronavirus situation, and asked if we will continue with the Lunar New Year celebration. I brought this matter to Fr. Larry and Sr. Felicia's attention, and have spoken directly with Bishop Barber, who conducted research and consulted with local medical experts. Bishop Barber concluded that the health risk in the Bay Area remains low, as the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has indicated the virus is not currently spreading in the community. Bishop Barber has confirmed his attendance, and our New Year Mass and banquet will go on as planned on 2/16. I hope to see you all there. Please RSVP by Monday 2/10, if you have not already done so.

 

Please be assured that we will continue with the precautionary measures during Mass. We will not have the "Exchange of Peace" by handshakes, and will not administer the Precious Blood from the common Chalice. We will only distribute the Sacred Host at Communion. Anyone who is sick or has had recent close contact with infected individuals should stay home.

 

As we pray for those affected, and remain diligent ourselves, we must not let fear and stress overwhelm our daily lives. I encourage you to utilize CDC.gov as your main resource, as their information is the most reliable and pertains to us living in the United States. As a reminder, the CDC does not recommend the use of face masks for the general public (unless you are sick).
 

- Fr. Simon Jin
