+ Please wear a mask if you desire to be in person, and the priest will do the same as an added layer of protection.
+ As always, please call the office to schedule a confession if you are wanting a time and place not around as many people.
As we continue to seek ways to establish a new normal, consider using a personal missalette for both liturgical and personal prayer. Missalettes are removed from our pew which limits parishioners from participating in the liturgy. We encourage you to adopt the habit of using a personal missalette for both liturgy and personal prayer.
We recommend Magnificat and The Word Among Us. Both are monthly publications designed for daily use. It can be used to follow the Mass and assist in personal prayer. Choose the edition which is best for you.
The Generation of Faith - Endowing Our Future with Hope campaign aims to raise funds to strengthen the Church and fund endowments that will support seminarian formation, priest retirement, and youth ministry at the local parish level. For more information or to make a pledge, Click Here.
