Update 6/27/2020

Hi Everyone,

We will be adding more Masses to the schedule in July. After the July 4th weekend, we will be going to 5 weekday Masses - Monday through Friday (all 9:00 AM) - beginning Monday, July 8, 2020.


Because of Confirmation, 1st Communion, Baptisms, Weddings, and Memorial Masses, the Saturday morning Mass will be closed to the public until our sacraments are completed. The 6:00 AM 1st Friday Mass will return in September.


Beginning Sunday, July 12, 2020 we will add the 11:00 AM Sunday Mass. For those who stream the Mass at home and drive in for reception of Holy Eucharist – the time will change on July 12, 2020. Fr. Ben & I will be available for ½ hour after the 11:00 AM Mass (from 12:00 noon until 12:30 PM) under the carport. This will make reception of Communion safer with less traffic coming in and out after the 9:00 AM Mass.


A big thank you goes out to our volunteers who clean the church and our ushers and greeters who assist with the new procedures for Mass. We are able to expand our Masses because of their help.


Fr. Bob
