Our much-anticipated Mass at the Beach will take place next Sunday, October 16 at the Junior Seau Beach Amphitheatre (Band Shell) on The Strand at the foot of the pier.
The venue will open at 9:30 a.m. There will be seating on the floor of the amphitheater for 1,000 people and the bleachers will be available for anyone who wishes to sit there.
A concert with Santiago Fernandez will start at 10;30 a.m. and last approximately one hour. Please see the back page of this bulletin for more information about Santiago.
Our Bilingual Mass will begin at 12:00 noon. We will have a liturgy aid available rather than a missal and hymnal.
We are providing a nice selection of food trucks (no-host) if you wish to stay at the beach for lunch. We specifically have chosen a variety of menus that are family friendly and affordable.
You are also most welcome to bring a picnic basket with you as well if that better suits your needs.
If you are unable to attend our Mass at the Beach, there will be an abbreviated schedule of Masses at the church next weekend.
Saturday in English at 5 p.m. and in Spanish at 6:30 p.m.
Sunday in English at 7:30 & 9:00 a.m. (There will be no 10:30 a.m., 12:15 p.m. or 5:00 p.m. Masses at the church on October 16.)
As you know, especially with our downtown development, parking can be a bit challenging.
For transportation, you are encouraged to “think outside the box”. Why not ride in on the Sprinter (along Oceanside Blvd.) or the Coaster (along the coast). The ride is very affordable and would add another bit of adventure to the day.
We will have a shuttle available from our Parish Center parking lot that will allow transportation for those who are not able to walk the six blocks to the beach. Please call the office this week to put your name on a list so we can plan for the number of people who will use the service.
We will have parish tee-shirts available for sale ($8/each or $15 for two).
The 2016 Honda FIT will be available for you to see. You can buy a few more raffle tickets or turn in the ones you have. The drawing will take place after Mass.
