DO YOU HAVE AN EXTRA ROLL OF PAPER TOWELS OR CONTAINER OF SANITIZING WIPES?  If you’d like to donate one of your extras to Church, please just bring it with you to Mass when you come. We also ask, if you have them, and if possible, please bring a sanitizing wipe or two to sanitize your area before leaving Mass. Thank you for your help with sanitizing after Mass! We are blessed to have such a caring family of faith!

Weekend Masses have limited seating due to social distancing. If you are interested in attending Saturday or Sunday Mass, you will need to make a reservation to ensure that you will be part of the limited capacity.  If you come to Mass without a reservation and we have reached our capacity, unfortunately, we will not be allowed to let anyone else inside.

Face coverings are required for everyone in attendance at all Masses and must be worn at all times.  For the safety of others, masks need to be on properly before you approach the Church.

Restrooms are not available.
