To All Parishioners

Our CHURCH is still CLOSED due to the COVID-19 threat.

For the time being, we celebrate Sunday Masses outdoors, in the Parking Area by the Parish Hall.

The Masses are held

on Saturdays at 4:30 PM,

and on Sundays at 8:30 AM.

To all Mass attendees, it is mandatory to come in a face mask and to observe social distancing.

Advent Penance Services have been suspended.   With the bishop’s permission, I will administer General Confession and Absolution at our Advent Sunday Masses, that is, starting on the weekend of November 28th-29th. It will take the place of the usual Penitential Act.

God bless you always.

All for the greater honor and glory of God, I remain
