*** We are inside church in the main body of the church (nave/transepts) to avoid the small spaces in the confessionals. Therefore, we are unable to offer Confessions on Saturdays before Mass because people are entering church for Mass and therefore would limit the privacy of those in confession. Priests are behind screens in front of the confessional and in front of the choir area.
Holy Communion After Mass
is in the Narthex and in the handicapped parking area.
Walk up the left side of the main entry path. Enter the narthex and go to any of the four ministers of Communion. Exit through the handicapped door or out the front, using the left side of the path. Everything is clearly marked for one way entrance and one way exit to maintain social distancing.
: Use the handicapped parking area, roll down your window and Holy Communion will be brought to you.
all who are suffering from COVID-19 related illness or loss of jobs, and especially for our healthcare professionals and emergency responders. May they find their strength in the Lord and the love of friends and family.

We would love
to have everyone join us, but please
stay at home if
you have fragile health or show symptoms of COVID-19.
If you have been with us and then become sick,
please tell us
immediately so that we can do whatever is necessary to inform our parishioners.
Please wear a mask in church, for your sake and for the rest of us.
We have extra masks on the entry table if you forget yours. Please do not take masks from the table to give away to others because we do not have an endless supply. These masks are so that people can attend Mass. Thank you for cooperating.
Most of you know the routines, so we moved detailed explanations to a new page on our parish website.
