As we gradually emerge from restrictions due to the pandemic, I am pleased to gradually return the regular weekday Mass times to the table on the parish bulletin. Parishioners interested in attending could ideally register at the parish office. Some parishioners may still be hindered by vulnerable health from attending church gatherings. Practices at home like prayer, reverent reading of Scripture, following broadcasted services still communicate graces especially to the housebound. You are remembered by priest and people at Mass.
