Overflow in the Hall with Holy Communion available at the 4:30 Vigil and Sunday 9:30 Masses

We are so grateful that so many people are attending Mass in person again. We see our Mass attendance rise each week -- a rise in numbers that we can be happy about! We are committed to the health and safety of our community and thus will be keeping our church capacity at 25% or 250 people. Those who arrive at the 4:30 pm Saturday Vigil Mass and the 9:30 am Sunday Mass after we have reached capacity, will be invited to attend Mass in our overflow area in the Parish Hall. Our Mass will be streamed to the TV's in the Hall and Holy Communion will be brought over by Ministers of Holy Communion. For our other Masses, we recommend that you arrive early to be seated inside the Church.

Giving as the Holidays Approach

Remember to return your donations for our Annual THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE. Bags for this weekend will be given out by Social Concerns Volunteers THIS WEEKEND. Thank you!


As we all know Christmas is a time of giving since at Christmas God gave us his Son Jesus. At this time we have 3 options.


a. The Social Concerns Challenge which allows our Social Concerns office to continue their outreach work without the help from the Thrift Store. Last week a couple in our parish gave us a very generous gift of $25,000 to help our Social Concerns office, challenging our community to match it. The good news is that we have already received $10,000 of the $25,000 challenge.


b. A second outreach is our Annual Angel Tree where parishioners could take the names of a family, buy the children gifts. This year we are giving money donations of $25 for each child so that the parent can buy their child’s gift. Right now, our Social Concerns office has about 130+ children. The good news is that we currently have enough money for 80 of the 130 children. If you would like to donate $25 or more to our Angel Tree, send to Social Concerns or to the church office.


c. A third outreach has to do with giving gifts to children in foster care. We work with a county organization and Cyndi Hernandez a parishioners is our contact. See the bulletin on how you can participate in this Advent Outreach.
