This weekend, we will repeat what we did last weekend with Holy Communion offered on Sunday from 10:30-11:30 (following 9AM live-stream Mass) and 2:00-3:00 (following 1PM live-stream Spanish Mass). Starting Monday, May 18, daily Masses at 9AM are open to the public. The first Sunday Masses open to the public will be for the Feast of the Ascension May 23-24 (regular Mass times). There will be a lot of adaptations and changes to keep everyone safe. Detailed information will be posted via the website, Flocknotes and Facebook by the end of the day on May 15. Thank you for your patience.
Please note that Bishop Olmsted has extended the dispensation for attending Mass, so attendance is not required. Please make the best decision for you and your family.
