We would like to welcome our new Pastor Rev. Preston Quintela!
Fr. Preston will now be celebrating our regular mass schedule. Please wear a mask if you wish and if you are sick please stay at home. We will practice safe distances and will have a collection basket at the back of each parish to drop off your envelopes. The obligation to attend Mass on Sundays and Holy Days remains suspended in the Archdiocese during the COVID-19 pandemic. Meanwhile, senior citizens over 65 and those who may be sick or with compromised health are strongly encouraged to continue watching Mass online by livestream.
