Welcome back! COVID-19 measures at our parish (July 2021)

We are very happy to welcome parishioners back to the church!  Check out the schedule for mass times.  We can welcome parishioners up to 50% of the church’s capacity. There are 110 spots available at each mass (each spot holds up to three people from the same household).

*New – Attendance at mass is on a first come, first seated, basis. Doors open 45 minutes before mass time, and parishioners must sign in on arrival. Pre-registration is not required.

We have paused live-streaming and recording masses so the crew may enjoy a vacation. Past recordings are available on the Virtual mass page. Thank you for your understanding.

For funerals, marriages, and parish receptions, a maximum of 25 attendees are permitted.  Please contact the parish for further details or to discuss your particular situation.

The parish office is open for meetings by appointment only.  Please contact the parish should you wish to make an appointment.
