We have joyfully resumed our regular Mass Schedule:  Monday-Saturday at 8:00 am; Saturday evening at 5:30 pm; Sunday morning at 8:30 am and 10:30 am - with an additional Mass at 12:30 pm on Sunday. All Masses are limited to no more than 250 people, with social distancing of 6 feet being observed.  

This continues to be a time of rapid change. We will continued to do our very best to keep you informed as we move forward. Please continue to refer to our website for the most up to date information.   Thank you for your faithfulness and understanding - please continue to pray for our parish, our priests, and our community.  God bless you all.
