Updates

Mask use in our parish church is 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.

February 8: St. Josephine Bakhita / Santa Josefina Bakhita

Today, we celebrate the feastday of St. Josephine Bakhita. Among the greatest (but often overlooked) gifts given to us by God are the many Saints canonized over the years.
