GOOD NEWS! It is with great joy that I am able to announce that the public celebration of Holy Mass will resume on Monday, May 18 at 8:30 am and will continue going forward. 

The weekend Mass schedule for the 23rd and 24th has been adjusted to maintain the 4:00pm Mass on Saturday, but only one Mass to be celebrated on Sunday at 8:30 am. We anticipate that the “normal” schedule of two Sunday Masses will resume the following weekend (May 30 and 31st). 

Please be reminded that the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass remains through June 28, 2020. As a reminder, the more vulnerable (i.e. 65 + years of age, those with compromised immune systems, those with underlying health conditions, those who are especially anxious of being in a large group, etc.) are encouraged to stay at home.
