Welcome to San Roque Catholic Church!

Dear Parish Community,

Now that Santa Barbara County has moved into the Orange Tier, our Parish has a plan for safely gathering with a few additions to what we have been doing.

Sunday Mass

We will be able to allow more people for Mass indoors. Please know that even though the restrictions allow for 50%, we MUST maintain six-foot safe distance. Please come early for Mass as you have been. 10 minutes before Mass our Ushers will help seat the last few people joining us. When Mass begins we will close the doors as there is no one to monitor them once we have begun. Anyone outside is welcome to stay in the Gathering Area and take advantage of the speaker there and join us at the end for Holy Communion. Thank you in advance for your understanding!

Weekday Mass

Starting Tuesday, April 27th, Fr. Bruce will offer 8:30 am Mass on Tuesdays and Thursdays, inside the church. This way the church will have time to self-sanitize between uses. Please contact Noël if you would like to Lector or serve as a Eucharistic Minister. (Mission Santa Barbara offers daily Mass on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 8:00 am.)

Questions? Concerns?

If you have questions or concerns please remember the dispensation for the Sunday Obligation is still in place from Archbishop Jose Gomez for all those who reside in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Our priority has been, and continues to be, the safety and health of those who come to celebrate with us in-person. If needed contact Noël education@sanroqueparish.org or call (805)682-1097

Saturday at 5:00 p.m.  & Sunday at 9:30 a.m.

The protocol for each Mass is as follows:

  • If you are at risk, please stay safe at home.
  • 90 persons maximum will be strictly observed. Once 90 people have entered or Mass has begun, doors will be closed and no one may enter after this point.
  • Masks are mandatory to attend Mass. Please put masks on before entering.
  • Please use hand sanitizer as you enter.
  • Please observe 6 foot distancing upon entering and while seated (except for family units).
  • Only 2 entrances will be used. Doors will open ½ hour before Mass begins.
    Side door at Argonne Circle
    Side door at the breezeway on west side
  • Please observe safe distancing throughout Mass.

Communion Procedures:

  • Communion will take place at the end of Mass, received with social distancing and people departing after the reception of the Eucharist.
  • Line up beginning from the front, into the center aisle staying on marked spots.
  • Line up beginning from the front, into the center of each wing section on marked spots. A Eucharistic Minister will handle both wings in turn.
  • Communion will be given in hand only.
  • Please follow further instructions given at Mass.
  • Please do not enter the tabernacle area at all.

The church will be closed and locked immediately after Mass concludes for cleaning. We are still not resuming Confessions at San Roque.  We look forward to seeing you!

Blessings, Fr. Bruce
