We are excited to open again for mass! As you know, due to COVID-19, there are many precautions we must take for health and safety of all our parishioners and friends as we once again begin public celebrations of the Mass. Part of these precautions will be to limit the number of seats available to insure proper social distancing between people. A mask or facial covering must be worn to attend a Mass. 

You can register below or you can also call our office to register. 

Attendees MUST arrive 15 minutes before Mass begins.

Sign up will be open 8:00 a.m. Tuesday and end on Friday at 12:00 noon.
