After two in a half months, we are open again! We have missed you and hope that throughout the next few months we can all reconnect. The safety of everyone is very important to us, therefore, we will follow all County and Archdiocesan norms that have been set up in place. We ask for your patience and understanding through this process. 

For your health and the health of others, everyone must wear a face mask at all times while in Church property. There will be hand sanitizer at all main entrances, we ask that you please sanitize your hands once you enter the building.

  • Seating

    • Every other pew has a colored paper, either pink or blue. The pew without a paper has been roped off, please do not sit there.

      • Families can sit together.

    • There is no Holy water in the entrances of the Church due to health guidelines. ​

    • We ask that you exit the Church after Mass to allow our team to clean the pews.
