We have engaged a professional photographer to take photographs at appropriate times during the Mass. He will also take photographs after Mass at the altar or on the Church ground, weather permitting. 

 

Please be sure to turn off your cell phone and all electronic devices before entering the church.

The rule of fasting from food and drink, except water, for one hour before receiving Holy Communion is still in effect.

 

We ask your cooperation in adhering to these policies.
