Register now for our Virtual Summer Fun program! Click the following link Summer Fun 2020 to register online and for more information on the program. The 5 week program is designed for children Kindergarten - 5th grade, but is very family friendly. You can do as much or a little each day-the program is designed to work with the flow of family life in these 'different' times. Contact information for Jill Austin is on the site-do not hesitate to reach out to her if you have questions. Lesson plans are downloadable, or you can pick up printed copies (if you request them) in the parish hall Saturday's following Mass, 7:00-7:15pm or Sunday's between 9:00am and 9:45am. We will even give you the necessary craft supplies if requested.  

The Knights of Columbus have organized a Food Drive to be held the weekend of July 11/12.  Please bring non-perishable food items  to the side entrance of the parish hall when you come to Mass. Tables will be set up for your donations. All food will be delivered to our local Catholic Charities office Monday morning (July 13th). Catholic Charities is in great need for breakfast foods and snack items (EX: pancake mix, syrup, cereal, instant oatmeal/grits, pop tarts, juice, cookies, fruit, etc.), although any   
non-perishable food items are appreciated! Call the parish office with questions. Thanks for your generosity!

Join us July 4/5 as we continue to celebrate Mass outside! NEW SUMMER Mass times: Saturday, 7:00pm; Sunday, 8:00am and 10:00am.  If you plan on attending, we ask  you to wear a mask and bring your own chair (if you want to sit). To make Mass more comfortable, we have HUGE tents covering the area where we gather!
If you are in the vulnerable category (or you are sick), we ask that you stay safe and continue to isolate at home. PLEASE do not jeopardize your health or the health of others! The Bishop continues to waive the obligation of the faithful to attend Mass, so there is no reason to place yourself in danger.
Weekday Masses are held in the Church- Our weekday Mass schedule: Mon., Wed., and Fri. at 5:30pm. 

We have new tents! Thanks to Steve Canali (who spearheaded the project) and all the volunteers who spent June 5/6 in the heat & humidity putting up our tents! Job well done!
