Christmas Masses
Dec 24 - 6pm and 9pm
Dec 25 - 10am

Pleas join us as we celebrate the birth of our Savior!

*This very special time of year brings many visitors to our parish.  If you're comfortable with our space, please, sign up to help by being a greeter.  This is a very important ministry and one that is fun because you get to talk to so many people.  It is helpful (and kind!) to visitors when we are able to greet everyone and point them in the right direction.  We are asking for more greeters than normal, because there are more people coming to worship with us than normal.  :) 

If you know you'll be here, and would like to minister in a different way, please, sign up or let Kathy know how you're willing to help.

Thank you in advance for stepping up and helping us make this a very special celebration!

Holy Day ~ Feast of the Solemnity of Mary 

Monday, January 1 (New Year's Day)

Mass at 10am 

This day is set aside to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary’s motherhood in the wake of the birth of the baby Jesus Christ.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Acts 2:1-4    When the day of Pentecost came, they were all together in one place.  Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting.  They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them.  All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak in other tongues as the Holy Spirit enabled them.
