Dear brother priests and deacons,
As we work our way through this COVID-19 pandemic by taking all the steps in protecting oneself and one another (eg. social distancing, face mask, sanitization and testing), we anxiously look forward to seeing these early vaccines become available to not only those who are in most need, but also to the general public.
I share with you a statement from the California Catholic Conference released today, regarding the Catholic Bishop’s support of the two proposed COVID-19 vaccinations (Pfizer and Moderna). I encourage you to read it, so you will be able to answer questions or concerns that your parishioners may have regarding these early vaccines. Share it with your parishioners in whatever ways you think is best. Please click to read the attached statement in English and Spanish. Let us continue to pray for each other so we can flatten this pandemic curve.
Your brother in Christ,
+Bishop Danny Garcia
Most Reverend Daniel E. Garcia
