Masses – Reopening of our church – Updated April 10, 2021

The Supreme Court and the Bishops’ Conference have resolved their differences. The local bishop has issued  permission (optional) to re-open our churches to indoor worship, subject to the same COVID-19 protocols as before. 

I have opened the Live-streaming Masses (Saturday, 5:15pm and Sunday, 9am) to your in-person attendance. Please call the Rectory office, register your name and number of people with you and which
TV Mass you intend to attend.

Thank you! Fr. Fernando
