RE: Wearing of Masks
The CDC has issued new guidelines as of May 13, 2021, that allow for all those who have been fully vaccinated to no longer be required to wear face masks while in most indoor and outdoor settings. While this guideline is good news, it only applies to those who have received their full vaccinations and have waited the necessary two weeks afterwards.
As part of our ongoing commitment to the health and well-being of our church family, we will continue to require that all those attending Worship Service(s) at MCCSA must wear masks while in the building. In addition, we will continue requiring the taking of temperatures and the use of hand sanitizer. As part of our responsibility, we will also continue to sanitize all surfaces with disinfectant prior to and following each Service. We believe that these precautions are necessary and advisable as long as the possibility of infection remains.
We will continue to monitor the COVID-19 data information in San Antonio. While those numbers have decreased, they have not disappeared. We plan to re-visit our policies as these numbers change, prayerfully for the better.
As always, thank you for keeping us in your prayers as we work together to do the work that God has called us to do.
A gradual re-opening of MCCSA.The month of May is being celebrated as WELCOME HOME! Come and celebrate our church re-opening. There will be limited seating due to COVID restrictions.

The entire MCC San Antonio family would like to express our sincere, heartfelt condolences to our friend and colleague Deb Myers, Dignity San Antonio and the family of Nickie Valdez who entered eternal life on Christmas Day.
Nickie was a pioneer in the movement for equality for LGBTQ+ people in San Antonio as a co-founder of Dignity, a group that welcomes all lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex Catholics, as well as anyone else wishing to attend.
Nickie was a tireless and dedicated advocate for our community and we are grateful for all that she has done for social justice and the rights of all our citizens.
She leaves a legacy of faith and a commitment to inclusion.
Thanks so much.
Love and Blessings
Did you know you can get tested for COVID once a week at one of three Community Labs sites for asymptomatic testing? With results in 24 hours? For free? Not free "with most insurances." Free, period, full stop.
This is a great resource for San Antonio and one that not many other places in the country have. The testing sites are at the AT&T Center, and the Ramirez and Cuellar Community Centers. All sites are open for walk-in only, no appointments taken or required, Monday through Friday. AT&T operates 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. The community centers operate 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
