A 6-week adult study program, Bishop Robert Barron’s “The Mass”, begins Wednesday, January 9th at 7:00 PM. See how the Mass brings us out of the fallen world and into the heavenly realm, how it resonates with a call from God and a response from his people, the Church, and, most importantly, how we are intimately joined with the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus through the Holy Eucharist. “The Mass” will help you understand how to fully, consciously, and actively participate in the source and summit of the Christian life. If you would like to participate, add your information to the sign up sheet on the bulletin board in the vestibule by December 16th so study guides can be ordered. There is a $20 fee for the study guide, to be given to Emily Purcell in the church office. See her if payment is a concern. All are welcome!
The Parish Office will be closed December 24th through December 28th 2018 and also on Tuesday, January 1st and Wednesday, January 2nd of 2019.
