  • Confessions will be heard starting at 9:15am and ending at 10:05am. 
  • The full Propers and Scripture Readings for Mass with a translation may be found here.
  • The Rosary will be prayed starting around 9:50am in the church. 
Parishioners are encouraged to please join in for coffee, refreshment, and fellowship in the social hall after the 10:15am Mass on Sundays. This is an informal time to speak with fellow parishioners and to build the life of the parish. Each week Father Pendergraft will teach for about 30 minutes after we have had something to eat. We have much more to learn about our Catholic faith and we need to be reminded of things that we already know. Guests are encouraged to come. 
I am grateful for the continued assistance offered for work on the church and rectory. As things settle a little I will reach out to those who spelled out their skills and try to address the larger picture of the future growth and improvements to the parish. If there is anyone who is in need of receiving the sacrament of Confirmation or has a child they believe is ready, please contact me at your earliest convenience. We hope to arrange a confirmation ceremony in the next 8 weeks or so.

Please remember that any questions or comments about the church, liturgy, or way things are being run should be addressed to me. The phone system in the rectory is only partially working, but I am trying to get it back online this week.

Finally, I remind all those interested of the altar boy guild meeting this coming Saturday following the 8am Mass.

-Fr. Gregory Pendergraft, FSSP
