This message is from the Office of Religious Education. Due to the sudden influx of calls it has come to out attention that we need to remind our parishioners that our current situation with the COVID-19 Pandemic and by order of Bishop Myron Cotta, all Sacramental Masses, Confirmations and First Communions, are suspended until further notice. Once we receive the order from Bishop Cotta that Sacramental Masses may proceed, we will advise all candidates and their parents of the dates. We ask your continued prayers for all those affected by this pandemic.
