Mass Reservation

Dear Parishioners

I am pleased to announce that Bishop Boyea has given us permission to open up the church for greater Mass attendance beginning Sunday May 31st.   However, in the interest of health and safety he has asked us to restrict attendance to no more that 25% of the church’s capacity. This means we can allow approximately 100 people to participate plus the presiding priest and reader.

If you would like to attend you must request a reservation using one of the following signup methods.   

  1. Parish Website:  follow instructions below.
    Enter your name and preferred method of contact (your email address or phone number). In the first section pick your FIRST preference for the Sunday TIME you would like to attend Mass. In the next section pick your SECOND preference for the Sunday TIME you would like to attend Mass.
