  • Beginning Saturday, October 2 – Outdoor Confession time will change to 2:45-3:30pm

  • Beginning Sunday, October 3 – The outdoor Mass time will change to 11:30am and the 9:00am Mass will be indoors – UNLESS weather conditions alter the above schedule. 
    • The Sunday Mass time changes are to accommodate the start of Religious Education as the school parking lot is needed for drop-off and pick-up of students by their families. 
    • As the weather will become cooler, it is for the best the outdoor Mass be at a later time – whenever possible – as done last year.

Please know of my continued prayers for you and your family. 
 
God bless,
Fr. James M. DiPerri, Pastor
