Announcing a Change to the

Mass Schedule

St. John Fisher Parish recently surveyed parishioners about the time of the Saturday Vigil Mass.  Over 400 people responded to the survey, and the Pastoral Council reviewed the results.   With strong support for a change, the Pastoral Council made the recommendation to change the Mass time to 4:00 p.m.  The recommendation was accepted by Father McDermott.  Beginning May 27, 2017, the Saturday Vigil Mass will begin at 4:00 p.m.  The change also affects the time the Sacrament of Reconciliation (Confession) is offered.  As of May 27, 2017, Confessions will be heard from 3:00 p.m. until 3:45 p.m. in the Church.  The Sunday Mass  schedule will remain the same: 8:00, 9:30 and 11:30 a.m.
