New announcement your English Community

7 JUNE OF 2020
To all parishioners and visitors to Umeda Sacra Famiglia Church
(English Community)
I am Father Carlos. This year in April I have received a new responsibility as 主任司祭
(person in charge of Umeda Block: two parishes, Umeda Church and Sekime Church).
Due to CORONA VIRUS we have not been able to dialogue and speak calmly about this
aspect, but this is a big change for us.
How can we restart in this new stage to celebrate mass in this particular place? I have
followed this process:
a) I have been able to dialogue calmly with Bishop Sakai about the orientation of
Sacra Family from June.
b) We have celebrated Pastoral Council with English, Japanese and Latins
community leaders to hear everybody.
c) We have celebrated Block priest’s meeting.
d) Once more time, I have celebrated Pastoral Council again.
After due consideration and discussion with the Pastoral Council and Priests, we have
taken the following steps to provide spiritual support whilst also ensuring the safety of
all who attend our church.
SAFETY REQUIREMENTS TO “PROTECT ALL LIFE“:
MASKS AND SOCIAL DISTANCING ARE MANDATORY AT SACRA FAMIGLA CHURCH
I want to share with you the discernment:
1. About Sacra Familia place and community’s place:
In Umeda Church, Sacra Famiglia ventilation is not good, there are no windows. It Is
difficult to maintain social distance due to number of people (English Community,
Japanese Community , Indonesians and Latins). Our community is very special because
quite number of people from other parishes and tourists attend here in our multi-
cultural Church. The risk is high. We have to be careful. We need to protect our health.
2. Live stream International Masses
JUNE 14, 21 and 28: International Mass will be broadcast as follows: On-line from 9 am
from Umeda church. To participate, click on Umeda Catholic Church Home page.
From 5 July: English mass will be broadcast at 9 h

6. Finally, when we live difficult situations, always have chance to mature as
human beings and Christians. Nobody can control this situation about CORONA
VIRUS. But we have to be careful.

Thank you
for your understanding and cooperation and God bless you all.

Respectfully,
Father Carlos
