In a memo dated May 21, 2020, I granted a general dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass to all the faithful through Sunday, September 6, 2020. We are all aware that the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic continue. In light of this: the dispensation from the Sunday obligation to attend Mass is granted to the faithful through January 1, 2021. Obviously, this could change depending on circumstances.
A number of questions have arisen relative to choirs and congregational singing at Mass. Congregational singing and choirs at Mass, according to Provincial guidelines, “should not be allowed.” The use of a single cantor with an accompanist is being recommended.
Hampers are available at the East entrance of the church from 2-3pm every Wednesday during the Covid 19 pandemic. Please bring your identification and a bag. All proper protocol will be followed during this time.

If you are a baptized Catholic and have not received the Sacraments of Reconciliation & Holy Eucharist and want to, there is an opportunity for you to prepare to receive these sacraments.
Or…. perhaps you have not been Confirmed and now desire to receive the Sacrament of Confirmation.
