As Catholics, we praise and honor God in a variety of ways, but the chief act of communal worship is the Liturgy of the Eucharist. Throughout the world, our community joins together as a unified body to celebrate the sacrifice and Resurrection of Jesus Christ.
While the primary participants in the Mass are the priest and the congregation, there are many other participants of the Liturgy, including Eucharistic Ministers of Holy Communion, Ministers of the Word, Ushers, and altar servers, among others. Please consider joining one of these areas to participate more fully in the Liturgy.
Stations of the Cross take place on Fridays during Lent at 7:00PM
The Mass Intention Book for 2018 is now open.
Please do not request Masses before then. The guidelines remain the same as in past years. These restrictions are for the benefit of everyone who wishes to book Masses during the year. If you wish to book more Masses later in the year, by all means contact us. We ask:
– no more than 10 Masses
– no more than 2 Saturday 4:30PM Masses
– no more than 6 Sunday Masses
In addition to Sunday, the days to be observed as holy days of obligation in the Latin Rite dioceses of the United States of America, in conformity with canon 1246, are as follows:
January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God;
Thursday of the Sixth Week of Easter, the solemnity of the Ascension;
August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary;
November 1, the solemnity of All Saints;
December 8, the solemnity of the Immaculate Conception;
December 25, the solemnity of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Whenever January 1, the solemnity of Mary, Mother of God, or August 15, the solemnity of the Assumption, or November 1, the solemnity of All Saints, falls on a Saturday or on a Monday, the precept to attend Mass is lifted.
