If you are not comfortable with the crowds at the weekend masses, remember daily mass is a great alternative to hear the word and receive the Eucharist. There are just a handful of people present. Mass is at 8:30 am.
 
We plan to put up the Christmas tree on Dec 20, immediately following the Sunday mass. Please plan to stay and help decorate, especially the really “tall guys.” Mass is at 8:00 am for December.
