Dear members of Narashino Parish:


May the peace of the Lord be with you.


Before we enter the month of November (the month of the dead) and pray for "all the dead," I would like to inform you of the liturgical schedule for the Mass and the names of those who have passed since December of last year.


1. About Mass Participation

  From next week, November 7, the participation in Mass on Sunday will be twice a month instead of

       once a month.


  * Please bring your name tag (Group A or Group B). If you don’t have your name tag yet, please register at the Church Hall on Sunday.


     November 7     7:30am and 10:00am Mass : Group A  

  November 14   7:30am and 10:00am Mass : Group B

  November 21   7:30am and 10:00am Mass:  Group A

  November 28   7:30am and 10:00am Mass:  Group B


There will be no change in the Mass for Church School (14:30) and the Vietnamese Mass (17:00).


2. About the "Month of the Dead

  On November 7, the first Sunday of the month of the dead, we will have a joint memorial mass.

       There were 14 people who died after last year's joint memorial mass. 


3.  Please be aware of the following when attending Mass.


Although Masses will resume, there is no obligation to participate.  If you are not feeling well or if your family

    is worried, please rest and do not participate. During the Covid-19 Pandemic, you are exempt from your duty

    to attend the masses.  (Approved by the Archbishop.)

When participating in Mass, please check your body temperature, disinfect your hands/fingers, and wear a

    mask at all times at the church.

Please bring your own pen so that you can fill out the registration form at your seat.
