(Updated May 7, 2020)

Current Mass Schedule

  • Daily Services – Please join Fr. Peter Patrick Kimani Monday – Friday at 8:15 am for Mass on our parish Facebook site (https://www.facebook.com/StSebsMKE – you do not need to be a Facebook member to watch).
  • Sunday Mass – We post our recorded Mass on this website and Facebook each Sunday morning available at 7:30 am.

Mass Schedule as of May 31

Sunday Mass Times

  • St. Sebastian: Sunday, 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. There are only two Masses to allow for complete cleaning and sanitization following the 8:00am Mass.
  • St. Catherine: Sunday, 9:00 am
  • Weekday Masses: Are not celebrated publicly at this time.

Church Capacity – The Archbishop has directed that no church may exceed 25% capacity. St. Sebastian Mass will have a limit of 200 people and St. Catherine Mass will have a limit of 150 people. Doors will be unlocked 15 minutes prior to Mass. Please arrive sometime within those 15 minutes. We also ask that all depart promptly after Mass.

No Cluster Mass – The annual tradition of having a Cluster Mass for our two parishes on the Feast of Pentecost will not happen on May 31st, as we are trying to control the size of Masses in our churches.

Additional Important Information

No Mass Obligation – The Archbishop has extended the dispensation from Sunday Mass obligation to July 5, 2020. All persons may use their own discretion about attending Mass until that time.

Health Issues – If you are experiencing flu-like symptoms or a fever, you are to PLEASE STAY HOME. The most vulnerable are also encouraged to please stay home. This includes:

    • The elderly (60 and older)
    • Those with compromised immune systems or with underlying health concerns
    • Those who are anxious about the safety of being in public places during this time

Live Mass – We will continue to offer the live-streamed Mass Sunday and weekdays for those who prefer to stay home.

Sacraments – Baptism, First Eucharist and Confirmation eventually will be celebrated. We await the Archbishop’s decision on when and how these will occur.

We pray that all parishioners, in sharing this value of the Eucharist, will respect all new norms for celebrating Mass. We will walk together through this with faith but also with reason, with hope but also with caution, and always – with love!
