DECREE

Dispensation from the Obligation to Attend Mass Extension - July 5, 2020 through August 30, 2020

While I have granted permission to begin the reopening of public Masses, due to the ongoing gravity of the present moment and the restrictions being placed on us during the "Phase 2" civil reopening plan, I hereby extend the dispensation for all Catholic faithful of the Diocese of Las Vegas and those Catholics visiting within the geographic boundaries of our Diocese, from the obligation of attending Sunday Masses up to and including August 30, 2020. While we recognize that many are eager to return to Mass in our churches, it remains important for those who are elderly and otherwise at risk to refrain from returning to public Liturgies until it is manifestly safe to do so. For all the faithful, especially those who are sick, at high risk of becoming sick, and their caregivers, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass is hereby dispensed.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Most Reverend George L. Thomas, Ph.D.

Bishop of the Diocese of Las Vegas

Date: June 30, 2020

DECRETO

Dispensaci6n de la obligaci6n de asistir a misa Extension - 5 de julio de 2020 hasta el 30 de agosto de 2020

Mientras he otorgado permiso para comenzar la reapertura de Misas publicas, debido a la gravedad actual del momenta actual y las restricciones que se nos imponen durante el plan de reapertura civil de la "Fase 2", por la presente extiendo la dispensaci6n para todos los fieles cat61icos del Di6cesis de Las Vegas y los cat61icos que visitan dentro de los limites geograficos de nuestra di6cesis, desde la obligaci6n de asistir a las misas dominicales hasta el 30 de agosto de 2020 inclusivo.

Mientras reconocemos que muchos estan ansiosos por regresar a Misa en nuestras iglesias, sigue siendo importante para aquellos que son ancianos y que estan en riesgo de abstenerse de regresar a las Liturgias publicas hasta que sea manifiestamente seguro hacerlo. Para todos los fieles, especialmente aquellos que estan enfermos, en alto riesgo de enfermarse, y aquellos que los cuidan, se les exime de la obligaci6n de asistir a la misa dominical.

Sinceramente suyo en Cristo,

Most Reverend George Leo Thomas, Ph.D.

Obispo de Las Vegas Fecha: 30 de junio de 2020

June 2, 2020

St. Peter the Apostle has been given permission by our local bishop to enter phase 2 in accordance with the guidelines and limitations issued by the Governor of Nevada and the Diocese of Las Vegas Restoration Council. The elderly and those who are medically vulnerable are cautioned not to return to public liturgy or attend large public gatherings too soon.

During phase 2 the celebration of public Mass will begin on Saturday, June 6, 2020 at 5pm with the limitation of 50 people at each Mass. This includes the celebrants, staff, volunteers, ushers, Eucharistic ministers, cantors, lectors, and sacristans. We will continue with our regular Sunday and weekday Mass schedule as follows:

Mondays through Saturdays 8 am Wednesdays 6pm Spanish Saturdays Vigil Mass 5pm Sundays 8am, 10am, 12pm, 2pm (Spanish), 5pm

Due to the limitation of the number of 50 people that can attend each Mass, we will have a reservation system for Mass attendance as recommended by the bishop’s restoration council. The limitation of 50 people per Mass makes it impossible for everyone to attend Mass every week since we have over 2800 registered families in our parish.

Please click. "Reservations for Mass attendance" above if you would like to make a reservation.

Each Wednesday morning at 9am the following week’s Mass schedule will be posted on the link. Access to reserve one Mass for the following week will be cut off on Wednesday afternoons at 3pm. We cannot guarantee that you will get a Mass reservation. Please note that if there are any unforeseen issues that may arise, reservations may need to be cancelled.

Please read PHASE 2 GUIDELINES for all the information you need to be able to make reservations to attend a mass in the coming week.

PRAYER FOR VOCATIONS

Lord Jesus, Son of the eternal Father and Mary Immaculate, grant those among us who are being called to a vocation to priesthood or religious life, the generosity necessary to follow their call, and the courage required to overcome all obstacles to their vocation. Give parents that faith, love, and spirit of sacrifice which will inspire them to offer their children to God’s service and to rejoice whenever one of their children is called to the priesthood and religious life. Let your example and that of your Blessed Mother and Saint Joseph encourage both young people and parents and let your grace sustain them. Amen.

The Holy Father has granted the gift of special Indulgences to the faithful suffering from COVID-19 disease, commonly known as Coronavirus, as well as to health care workers, family members and all those who in any capacity, including through prayer, care for them.

AN ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION

An Act of Spiritual Communion My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.

Amen.
