EUCHARISTIC ADORATION  FIRST FRIDAYS

Commencing the First Friday of June and every First Friday of the month, we will have Adoration following the 9am Mass, until 10:30am.  This will replace the Adoration previously at 8am on First Saturdays.  Moving Adoration to this time will allow more of us to come and spend time with our Lord.

COME SING AT OUR 10:30am MASS CHOIR!!

CHILDREN'S LITURGY IS TAKING A BREAK FOR THE SUMMER AND WILL RETURN IN THE FALL

Many thanks to the volunteers and to the children who join us downstairs on Sunday and make it a great experience for all!

You can still get a copy of the children's bulletin all summer long at the side entrance of the Church or on the Children's Resources page here on the website!

HAVE A FUN SUMMER!!!

 

      

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

               DO YOU HAVE A FEW HOURS TO GIVE TO YOUR PARISH?

 

    If there is one thing we learned in the past two years (besides how to wear a mask without fogging up your glasses 😊), it’s that without volunteers our parish could not have remained opened.   As we now move forward the need is no less..  We are in need of new volunteers to lessen the load on those that have given so much of themselves to make our Church a welcoming home.  In most cases the commitment is for a few hours a month and training is provided where required.  We are looking for more:

 

Ministers of Communion                 Lectors

Altar Servers (adult and children)  Ushers

Collection Counters                         Projectionists                             

 

Do you play a musical instrument or sing?  Why not join our choir!

 

Do you have an interest in social media, gardening, or other talent that can contribute to our parish life?
