In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Diocese of Orange and its parishes are livestreaming a number of daily and Sunday Masses via Facebook and online. 

Most Rev. Kevin Vann, Bishop of Orange, announced on March 17 that in response to the pandemic, all public celebrations of Sunday Masses throughout the Diocese were temporarily suspended, and dispensed all Catholics in Orange County from the obligation of attending Mass. A decision on when Masses will resume will be made in coordination with state and local public authorities. 

“It’s critical during this health crisis that Orange County Catholics continue to give generously to their parishes,” Bishop Vann said. “Almsgiving is an important part of worship at all times but particularly during Lent. I urge Catholics to prayerfully give by mailing a check to their church, or use their parish online giving tool.”  

Orange County Catholics are urged to check their parish websites and Facebook feeds for the latest information on online Masses and Holy Week services.
