Many thanks to all who joined in the celebrations last weekend and made them so beautiful. May God continue to bless Deacon Paul and his family as he begins his diaconal ministry.

Summer Mass Schedule

Over the past few years, we’ve changed the Mass schedule during the months of July and August. This consisted of not having the 9:30am Mass.

This year, we are going to combine the 9:30am and 11:00am into a 10:00am Sunday Mass for the months of July and August only. Thank you for your continued patience and flexibility.
