  Hurricane Relief Special Collection

Watching the devastating impact of Hurricane Irma on Florida just weeks after Hurricane Harvey slammed into the Texas coast is overwhelming to our senses and emotions. The suffering of the people in the state of Florida and south Texas has just begun, but will last for months, as efforts to clean up and rebuild begin.   We can help by supporting the Catholic Charities Disaster Relief Fund! A second collection for emergency relief operations for the thousands of people affected by the hurricanes will be held during all Masses the weekend, September 16 and 17. Please make checks payable to St. John Fisher, and we will forward the money collected to the Disaster Relief Fund. Thank you in advance for your generosity toward our fellow Americans in need


 Vigil Mass Time Changed on May 27

Beginning May 27, 2017, the Saturday Vigil Mass will begin at 4:00 p.m.  The change 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.  More than half of the parishioners who voted preferred the time change.  The Pastoral Council recommended the change, and Father McDermott accepted their recommendation.  Please spread the word to other Catholics in our community about the earlier Mass time on Saturdays!
