Updates

October 2, 2022 Update: Mask use in our parish church is now optional but recommended. Masks are recommended in order to protect the more vulnerable in our community, like children and those with compromised immunities. If you are sick in any way or even feeling a little “under the weather,” please stay home! Our concern is for your good health and the good health of those in the pews around you. Thank you.

The Good Shepherd

“Even though I walk in the dark valley I fear no evil; for you are at my side. With your rod and your staff that give me courage.” Psalm 23 Who hasn’t felt a deep sense of solidarity over these past weeks, realizing that we are responsible for one another, that we depend on one […]
