Merry Christmas to all of you! Even though we don't attend church often, the times we have are the most memorable for my family and I. The images of our family together near the Alter are my most cherished. God Bless Us All!

Just a note to tell the community of the passing of my aunt, Mary Valdez. Mary was a faithful member of this church for decades. She and her late husband, Al, could be found at Bingo Night every week and church every Saturday. She moved to the neighborhood on Nevada Street in 1964. She was so happy to be only a few blocks away from my mom (the late Isabel Romero). She and my uncle lived there with my grandmother and their three children. There have many church dances, crab feeds, baptisms, first communions, confirmations and weddings celebrated for our family at St. Kevin’s sine then. She lived there until this past year when due to her health, she moved to an assisted living facility. Her son Gregory and Ronnie are still parishioners. Her daughter, Terry, also attends mass at St. Kevin’s whenever she is in town. Her grandson, Kevin, serves as an altar boy at 10:00 mass and this made Mary immensely proud. She is also grandmother to Greg Valdez, Jr., Anthony Valdez, John Valdez, Veronica Valdez and Domonique Valdez. Our family lost her on April 12 and the loss of my dear godmother will be felt by many in the community. She was friendly, kind, funny and loving. Her faith was strong and never wavered. Please pray for our family during this time as Mary goes to join all of angels and saints in heaven. We will miss her dearly.
St. Kevin's memories: My parents met at a St. Patrick's Day dance at St. Kevin's during WWII, Fr. Donaghue pastor. They married at the church 3 years later to the day. As their first child, I was named Pat.

The Centennial of St. Kevin Parish is in 2022. Help us prepare for it by sharing your memories and post pics, with dates & people in them on the Timeline.

Founded in 1922, St. Kevin's is the Roman Catholic Parish serving the Bernal Heights community in San Francisco. It will celebrate its Centennial in 2022 so we are collecting memories, photos, video, etc. for the compilation of a book and movie for the occasion. 2022 may seem far away, but it's good to get a head start. Please post what you may have from Baptisms, First Communions, Confirmations, Quincineras, Weddings, Funerals, Summer Programs, Bingo, Catechism/CCD, or other parish life. Feel free to comment on anything!

Mission: "St Kevin Parish is dedicated to creating and developing a strong welcoming community by reaching out to reveal and communicate the love of God to all people. We aim to deepen our spiritual lives with liturgical celebration, fellowship, educatino and service in a spirit of collaborative leadership between ordained and laity. We strive to emphasize and respect the uniqueness of each person and to continue the mission of Jesus within the environment of our Catholic faith community."

Many thanks to Irma Moncada, Cynthia & Danny Durant and Kathleen Echiverri for helping us prepare for Lent by decorating the Church!

Ash Wednesday is this Wednesday. Our Pastor, Fr Henry Noga, SVD celebrates the Mass of Ash Wednesday with distribution of ashes at 9am in English.

Fr Miguel Ruiz, SVD celebrates a bilingual Mass (Spanish and English) of Ash Wednesday at 6pm with distribution of Ashes.

Under the Department of Public Health directives, seating capacity at St Kevin's is 100 people maximum (25% of capacity) which will be strictly enforced. I do not know if more people will want to attend Mass than the number allowed inside and whether we will have to exclude people from entering the Church.

We will have small envelopes with blessed ashes prepared for those who might wish to bring ashes to family members sheltered at home. These will be available after each Mass on Ash Wednesday.

Remember, Ash Wednesday is not a holy day of obligation. Exercise common sense if you choose to come to Mass and receive ashes.

Ashes will not be distributed on the days following Ash Wednesday nor after the Masses of the 1st Sunday of Lent.

If you have questions about Ash Wednesday please post them below.

[02/07/21]   Following the U.S. Supreme Court decision on Friday, February 5, 2021 prohibiting the State of California from enforcing its directive that no public worship services may take place indoors at Churches, Archbishop Cordileone has given permission to Pastors to once again open their Churches for the public celebration of Mass and the Sacraments.

Beginning tomorrow, February 7, 2021, St. Kevin Church will be open for the public celebration of Mass at 10AM in English and 12PM in Spanish. Daily Mass will resume at 9AM Tuesdays through Fridays. Next weekend, the regular weekend Mass schedule will resume: 5:00PM Mass on Saturday, the 8:00AM and 10:00AM Masses in English on Sunday, and the 12:00PM Mass in Spanish.

Ash Wednesday is on February 17, 2021. The 9AM Mass with the distribution of Ashes will be in English, and the 6PM Mass with the distribution of Ashes will be bilingual in English and Spanish.

Please follow basic common sense if you choose to come to Church and participate in the celebration of Mass:

1. Do not come to Church if you are feeling ill or are exhibiting symptoms of a cold, the flu or COVID-19 that cannot be explained by other non-communicable reasons. Please do not come if you have been diagnosed with COVID-19 within the last 10 days, or if you have been in close contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19 within the last 14 days. The Archbishop has continued his dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass.
2. Please take your temperature at home before coming to Church to ensure that it is normal.
3. Please wear a mask when you are in Church.
4. Please sanitize your hands when you enter Church and before receiving Communion.
5. Please maintain social distancing at all times. Members of the same household may sit together, but those who do not belong to the same household should be socially distanced from each other.
6. Only sit in designated spaces in the pews – do not sit in a section marked by blue masking tape.
7. While liturgical music will be played during Mass, do not engage in singing.
8. If you would like to greet or visit with your fellow parishioners, please do so outside of Church. Do not engage in social conversation inside the Church.
9. Unless you would like to stay in Church to pray, please depart the Church after the end of Mass so sanitization of the Church can begin.
10. There will be no access to restrooms at the Church, and there will be no after-Mass gatherings.

If we adhere to the principles of basic common sense, wear masks and maintain social distancing, we will ensure that St. Kevin Church will be a place where we can celebrate the Eucharist and share in the Sacraments while also ensuring the safety of our fellow parishioners.

Let us continue to pray, through the intercession of Mary our Mother, Health of the Sick, for a quick recovery for those stricken by COVID-19 or the effects of the shutdown, for the eternal repose of the souls of those who have succumbed to this scourge, and for the continued good health and safety of the Priests and parishioners of St. Kevin Parish.

-----

Tras la decisión de la Corte Suprema de los Estados Unidos, el viernes 5 de febrero de 2021 que prohíbe al estado de California hacer cumplir su directiva de que no se puedan realizar servicios públicos de adoración en el interior de las iglesias, el arzobispo Cordileone ha dado permiso a los pastores para abrir nuevamente sus iglesias al público, celebración de la Misa y los Sacramentos.

A partir de mañana, 7 de febrero de 2021, la parroquia St. Kevin estará abierta para la celebración pública de la misa a las 10 am, en inglés y a las 12 pm. en español. La misa diaria se reanudará a las 9 am. De martes a viernes. El próximo fin de semana, se reanudará el horario regular de misas de fin de semana: misa de las 5:00 pm el sábado, las misas de las 8:00 am y las 10:00 am en inglés el domingo y la misa de las 12:00 pm en español.

El miércoles de ceniza es el 17 de febrero de 2021. La misa de las 9:00 am con la distribución de cenizas será en inglés y la misa de las 6:00 pm con la distribución de cenizas será bilingüe en inglés y español.

Siga el sentido común básico si decide venir a la Iglesia y participar en la celebración de la Misa:

1. No venga a la Iglesia si se siente enfermo o presenta síntomas de un resfriado, gripe o COVID-19 que no se pueden explicar por otras razones no transmisibles. No venga si le han diagnosticado COVID-19 en los últimos 10 días, o si ha estado en contacto cercano con alguien que haya dado positivo por COVID-19 en los últimos 14 días. El Arzobispo ha continuado su dispensa de la obligación de asistir a misa.
2. Por favor, tómese la temperatura en casa antes de venir a la iglesia para asegurarse de que sea normal.
3. Use una máscara cuando esté en la Iglesia.
4. Higienice sus manos cuando ingrese a la Iglesia y antes de recibir la Comunión.
5. Por favor mantenga el distanciamiento social en todo momento. Los miembros del mismo hogar pueden sentarse juntos, pero aquellos que no pertenecen al mismo hogar deben estar socialmente distanciados entre sí.
6. Siéntese únicamente en los espacios designados en las bancas; no se siente en una sección marcada con cinta adhesiva azul.
7. Si bien se tocará música litúrgica durante la Misa, no participe en el canto.
8. Si desea saludar o visitar a sus compañeros feligreses, hágalo fuera de la Iglesia. No participe en conversaciones sociales dentro de la Iglesia.
9. A menos que desee permanecer en la Iglesia para orar, salga de la Iglesia después del final de la Misa para que pueda comenzar la desinfección de la Iglesia.
10. No habrá acceso a los baños en la Iglesia y no habrá reuniones después de la Misa.

Si nos adherimos a los principios del sentido común básico, usamos máscaras y mantenemos el distanciamiento social, nos aseguraremos de que la Iglesia de San Kevin sea un lugar donde podamos celebrar la Eucaristía, compartir los sacramentos y al mismo tiempo garantizar la seguridad de nuestro prójimo.

Sigamos rezando, por intercesión de María nuestra Madre, Salud de los Enfermos, por una pronta recuperación de los afectados por el COVID-19 o los efectos del cierre, por el eterno reposo de las almas de quienes han sucumbido a este flagelo, y por la continua buena salud y seguridad de los sacerdotes y feligreses de la parroquia St. Kevin.

Supreme Court rules California churches may open despite the pandemic

I'm happy to share the news that the US Supreme Court has issued an injunction preventing the State of California from enforcing the complete ban on holding worship services indoors. The Court noted that it gives deference to politically accountable elected officials to rely on experts in crafting policies to promote the health and safety of citizens. But it is the duty of the Court to protect the Constitutional rights of all Americans.

With regard to the complete closure of Churches, the Court deemed California's closure not to be based on science. Chief Justice Roberts reasoned, "the State’s present determination—that
the maximum number of adherents who can safely worship
in the most cavernous cathedral is zero—appears to reflect
not expertise or discretion, but instead insufficient appreciation or consideration of the interests at stake."

At the same time, the Court thought the percentage capacity limits of 25% and the prohibition against singing can remain in place for now. The State makes a compelling enough case that these protections are necessary, but if the churches of record in this Supreme Court case can prove otherwise, these restrictions may be struck down as well.

What does this mean for us at St. Kevin's? The decision came out only two hours ago so we are still studying the scope of the decision and what we can and can't do at this stage. We will let you know whether we are able to reopen the Church for Mass this weekend.

Please continue your prayers for all those who are stricken with the COVID-19 virus and for the eternal repose of the souls of all those who succumbed to this scourge. Please pray for our priests and all those who work for St. Kevin Church, and for the blessing of health and safety on all our parishioners.
