IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT CHRISTMAS

CHURCH OPEN ON CHRISTMAS EVE DAY: The church will be open on Christmas Eve Day, December 24th, from 10:30am to 4:30pm for individuals and families who may want to stop in for a visit. The church will be decorated and lit during this time and quiet music will be playing over the sound system. It's a great opportunity for those who may not want or be able to attend one of the Christmas Eve or Christmas morning Masses. No sign-up is required, but safety protocols must be met.

CHRISTMAS MASS REGISTRATION REQUIRED: We are asking everyone who plans on attending one of the Christmas Eve or Christmas Morning Masses to pre-register. And we ask that this be done as soon as possible. Because of Archdiocesan and state mandates, we are limited to 75 congregants for each service in the church.  For the 5:00 pm Chriistmas Eve Mass, overflow attendees will be directed to the hall for a livestream and Communion.
