No Taizé Holy Hour Today - Friday, June 2nd!

Upcoming News and Announcements

  • We have been waiting a long time but on Monday, they will start working on our doors at the church. New hardware and hinges will be added to reinforce and support the weight of the door. They will start with the front doors and then move to the transept doors. We won’t know how long it is going to take to make the changes to the doors…it could take one day or three, but it is progress. Thank you all of you for your patience during this time. After we have adequately supported the doors, we will continue to work on a door closer system to make opening and closing the doors easier, but one thing at a time!!
  • Thank you for the warm welcome for the Ghana Catholic Community last weekend. Remember, there is an additional Mass at 1:30pm in the main church for the community but the Mass is open to the entire parish. They will be meeting in the Parish Center and Old Hall during the weekend and during the week.
