Solemnity of Saint Joseph, husband of the Blessed Virgin Mary

Vigil Mass May 18th at 6:30 PM in honor of all Fathers

You may be aware that Pope Francis has designated this The Year of Saint Joseph.  We would like to celebrate this feast with all our families.  We will have a special Mass for his feast day to honor all of our fathers.  To make it easier for our families to attend we are having a vigil Mass on Thursday, the 18th of March at 6:30 p.m.  This will be a special occasion to bless our fathers and for our fathers to dedicate themselves to their families.


To arrange the chairs in church to create a safe environment for our families, we will need you to reserve seats. Please follow this link to the reservation site exclusively for this Mass.

Please complete your reservation by noon on March 17th so we can prepare the seating accordingly. 
We hope you will find this a meaningful event and a safe way to join with other families for a blessed time of worship. We hope to see you there.


Stations of the Cross and more

Stations of the Cross  — Fridays during Lent at 5:30 PM

Fridays during Lent are obligatory days of abstinence (abstaining from meat)

Fast & Abstinence:  Ash Wednesday & Good Friday are obligatory days of fasting & abstinence for Catholics.  For members of the Roman Catholic Church, the norms on fasting are obligatory from age 18—59 years.  Visit usccb.org and “search” fasting and abstinence for detailed information, clarification on questions you may have, and a reflection on Lenten Fasting. 

The Church is open from 9-2 daily and Stations of the Cross Booklets will be on the counter as a gift to anyone wishing to come throughout Lent to walk the stations in private devotion (you should keep the booklet to use at home and to bring back with you each time you come for stations of the Cross at church)—please do not place them back on the counter).  Please observe the current protocols:   masks must be worn while in the church and if others outside your immediate family are in the church the 6’ safe distancing must be observed.   

Refer to the usccb.org website, . Thoughtful artwork depicts scenes in our modern world and compliments each of the stations.  The illustrations were created by young artists as part of the Catholic Campaign for Human Development Multimedia Youth Contest.  Each station has the scripture reflection followed by a group reflection and questions. 

From your home:  “Walk” the stations as a family, or with a group of friends or family via Zoom. 

   Both options offer a meaningful way to prepare and reflect during this season of Lent.
