Notices Regarding COVID-19 Impacts

Mass is suspended until further notice. Join Fr Tom for Holy Week services at this link.

All parish activities are cancelled until further notice, to comply with government and Diocesan guidance.

For those in RCIA who were scheduled to receive Sacraments at the Easter Vigil, we hope to reschedule for Pentecost Sunday (May 31st).  We'll be in touch with information as we have it.

We have extended chapel hours to include Sunday 9am-2pm. 

Keep all those affected by COVID-19 in your prayers.  Remember, we are in God's loving hands.

From Fr Tom: 

You are all being remembered in a special way daily in the Masses (said privately) and my prayers. All the intentioned Masses, both weekend and day, are invariably celebrated. Please continue to keep everyone in your prayers and stay spiritually connected (spiritual communion prayer) without fail, hoping for a speedy return to our community worship.
