DISTRACTIONS DURING MASS
The parish Liturgical Commission has asked that you please be reverent and respectful if you find it necessary to leave the celebration of Mass to use the restroom. It is distracting to the Priest who is presiding at the Sacred Liturgy as well as to those who are making a sincere effort to focus on the mystery of Christ's presence through the readings and the sacramental celebration. Please make a special effort to limit leaving Mass for emergencies only. Encourage your children to plan ahead before entering the church. If you must leave your pew for whatever reason, please avoid getting up during the readings, the homily and the Consecration. God bless you for being understanding.
PARISH OFFICE - VETERAN'S DAY
The Parish Office will be closed Monday, November 11th in observance of Veteran's Day. In case of emergency please call the Parish Office and leave a message. One of the parish priests will return your call as soon as possible.
Please remember the brave men and women of our Armed Forces in your prayers. May they be protected from harm and return home safely and may those who have died in service to our country be remembered with respect and gratitude.
