What’s Happening In Our Community?

Every Sunday morning, we stream our Mass live for you to follow from the comfort and safety of your own home. You can watch the mass on our homepage or on our YouTube Channel.

The Parish is enriched by the time and talents invested by our volunteers, and we are grateful for this gift. If you haven’t done so yet please familiarize yourself with the various groups and give a serious thought about joining them. New volunteers to bring fresh energy and new ideas are always welcomed with joy!
