Cardinal Thomas Collins has released a message today in regards to the coronavirus situation that churches and chapels are to be closed effective immediately. This also includes our perpetual adoration chapel. You may adore Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament on the altar of our church remotely through the camera (link above to “Parish TV”).

The parish office will also be closed. You may still reach the parish office by telephone or email.

Starting tomorrow, we will also be live streaming daily masses on YouTube (and Facebook Live as we have been thus far) following our regular mass schedule.
