No Daily Masses 4/5-4/16
Father Edwin will be away, so there will be no daily Masses. There will be a visiting priest the weekend of 4/10-4/11.
Easter Season still going strong!
The Knights will continue selling the Easter Yard Signs throughout the Easter Season. They are in Spanish, too!
Men’s Study Group – New Program
The Men’s group will be starting the program Presence this Monday, April 12th at 6:30pm. All men are welcome! See the bulletin for details.
Women’s Retreat: Growing in Holiness, Rooted in Love
April 24th, starts at 9am in the Gathering Space. All women are welcome! Last Chance to register is this weekend. See the bulletin for details
COVID Mass Capacity Update
We are allowed to increase to a maximum of 200 people at Mass, including those serving the Mass. Praised be the Lord!
Registering ahead for Masses will no longer be required as of the first weekend in January. We still need to abide by the capacity limitations, social distancing, and use of masks. But Hallelujah!
Formed – Exciting News!
Every year the parish gives a gift of a reflection book for Lent (and Advent). This year, the gift is the FORMED program. It’s like a Catholic Netflix, but even better! It has movies, audios, e-books, study programs, faith formation… It’s for all ages AND it has Spanish content, too!
After every Mass this weekend (2/27 & 28), Teresa will be in the Gathering Space, again, to show the types of content FORMED has; to help people upload the app on their smart phones; and to talk thru the process of connecting on your computers at home. Bring your phones, ipads, tablets and laptops with you!
Masks and spacing restrictions apply.
Anyone who is unable to attend, or for health reasons is wisely staying safely at home, IT’S OKAY! The dispensation is still in place. We will continue posting weekend masses in FaceBook. For this weekend, the masses will be streamed at 10:30am for the English Mass; 12:30pm for the Spanish Mass. You can watch the Mass either in Facebook or on YouTube.
Please check us out on our FaceBook page:
You do not have to have your own account or log in, just click “Not Now” (takes a minute to pop up) and then scroll and click into the mass you wish to view.
For those who have a FaceBook account and would like extra help on how to view live Masses, here is another way to view the mass:
- Open your FaceBook account.
