Did You Know?



Our Archbishop, Tarcisio Isao Kikuchi, has already released “Guidelines on Church Activities during the Christmas and New Year Season” He said, “We are fully aware that many non-Christians participate in the Christmas and New Year Masses every year, which gives us an opportunity for evangelization. It is with regret that this year however, it will be difficult to have as many people participating as freely in the Masses as we do every year, inasmuch as we take seriously our commitment “to protect ourselves from infection and to protect others from infection.”  Precautionary measures must be observed for Christmas and the New Year:


  1. It will be necessary to limit the number of people who may enter the Church.
  2. Only those who have registered in advance may participate in the Holy Mass.

Before the Christmas Season there will be a NEW SYSTEM of On-line Registration for Masses for the English Speaking Community. We will be conducting an intensive information dissemination from now on to help you with the transition. Make sure you attend a short explanation after Mass or look it up in our website before the busy season starts! Those who prefer help “hands on”, come early before Mass and the Roaming Team, composed of young, computer savvy SIIYM members will be in front of the church to help you.
