20201 MASS BOOK OPENS JULY 31: The book for Mass Intention for 2021is now open. If you wish to reserve a Mass for next year, please stop by the Parish Business Office during posted hours and we would be happy to assist you. The stipend for each Mass is $10, cash or check.
PRAYING THE PSALMS - Daytime Bible Study Group: We often hear the Psalms read at Mass and we even sing them in hymns, but have you ever thought about them outside of Mass? The Psalms are actually the prayers of Christ himself! It's not too late to join Seminarian Philip Cheung for a scriptural study program focused on the Psalms. The study group meets on Thursdays at 11am in the Church “Living Room” to allow for ample social distance. Feel free to come!
SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION: The Sacrament of Reconciliation is available in the Church shrine area (left of the Sanctuary), on Saturday afternoon between 3:00 -3:45 p.m. All of the safety protocols we have been following will apply: wear a mask; sit at least 6 feet away from one another; use hand sanitizer when entering church, and wipe down the pew with the provided materials when you arrive and leave.
