New COVID-19 Restrictions in Kern County

As of today, July 24, Kern County has been on the Monitoring List of counties for three consecutive days. This means gatherings cannot occur indoors until county infection rates decline. The new Mass schedule is as follows:

  • Weekend Mass: Sunday 8 PM, outdoors in front of the Daily Chapel. Please bring your own chairs. Attendance is limited to 100 people maximum. Masks and social distancing of 6 feet are required.
  • Daily Mass: Live Stream only. Time still to be determined.
  • Confessions: No confessions until restrictions are lifted.

The Church Office is also closed to the public.

Beware of Email and Phone Scams

Dear Parish and School Staff, Volunteers, and Parishioners,

It has been brought to my attention and to our parish office too by different people that people are receiving emails and phone calls from someone impersonating me (Fr. Rayanna Pudota). The email recipient is being asked to respond. The phone caller is asking for money.

This is another opportunity for us to raise awareness of scams such as this and to direct those who are contacted that they not respond; should not give money or gift cards; should not provide any personal information. Emails should be reported as Spam. Phone numbers should be blocked.

Thank you for your assistance in sharing this information with your friends.

Respectfully yours in Christ,

Fr. Rayanna Pudota

YouTube Channel

Dear St. Ann Parishioners and Friends,

We now have a YouTube channel called “Saint Ann Catholic Church Ridgecrest, CA” so that you can now view Masses, Adoration, and other Liturgical celebrations via this channel instead of Facebook. However, at this time, you won’t be able to watch Live, you will need to wait until the video is posted onto YouTube.

Please subscribe to our YouTube channel, and ask your friends and family to do the same. Once we reach 1,000 subscribers, we can livestream from the St. Ann YouTube channel.


Thank you for subscribing to our YouTube channel. As we enter Holy Week and Easter, I sincerely pray each day for your safety, security, and health. Blessings to you and your families this Holy Easter Season.

Fr. Rayanna Pudota
St. Ann Catholic Church
