-If you are a person-at-risk, over the age of 65, has diabetes, and/or has respiratory problems, PLEASE do not come to Mass yet.  This is still a cautious time with the danger of infection. 

-Seating capacity in the Church is limited to only 148 people at each Mass. 

-Some pews will be blocked from use to provide for social distancing.  Family households must sit together.  Please provide a respective distance from non-family parishioners.

Sunday Obligation:  The bishop has lifted the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice.  Please feel free to watch Mass on television and sanctify the Lord's day by prayers and devotions until things get back to normal.

As an option to attending Sunday Mass, daily Masses will resume this week on the same schedule as before.  Please consider coming to daily Mass, where there will be less people.    


“For this is the will of my Father, that everyone who sees the Son and believes in him, may have eternal life, and I shall raise him on the last day.”    John 6:40 



Perpetual Adoration is a devotion to render Jesus adoration which he is due as our Creator.  Time spent before the Most Blessed Sacrament allows one to give thanks and praise to God and offer petitions for the constant help we need.  To see Jesus visibly present in the monstrance, exposed under the appearance of the Blessed Eucharist brings one more intimately into his presence.  Faithful Adores are needed to sign up for one hour a week, agreeing to never leave Jesus alone.

When [Jesus] returned to his disciples he found them asleep.  He said to Peter, “So you could not keep watch with me for one hour?     Matthew 26:40
