The Sacrament of Reconciliation will be available today from 4:00pm to 5:00pm and again Saturday from 9:00am to 10:00am
SEATING RESERVATIONS We will no longer be using our seating reservation system. Those attending Mass are still expected to maintain social distancing in the pews. Every other pew remains blocked off, and we ask that when choosing seats in the pews you leave 6 foot distance between others. Ushers will be available to assist, but we know we can count on all of you to mange socially distanced seating as well. We are so grateful to Aidan Kaczanowski who created this program for us to ensure socially distanced seating these last 10 months. It has helped us to establish an effective seating system that has contributed greatly to keeping us safe and healthy.
