The Roman Catholic Diocese of San Diego in March canceled all masses and moved Catholic schools to distance learning indefinitely in order to limit the potential spread of the novel coronavirus amongst parishioners.
The diocese said the decision on when to reopen will be made in conjunction with public health authorities. No date has yet been determined.
Regular Sunday masses are also streamed online in English, Spanish and Vietnamese. To find those masses, click here.
