DRIVEWAY/PARKING LOT SIGNS & DIRECTION! For the safety of our parishioners and ease of entering and leaving our church parking lot, it has been decided to have only one entrance and one exit for cars. The entrance to the parking lot, off of Queenston Street will be at the Rectory/house driveway. The exit, onto Queenston Street will be at the Church driveway thus creating one direction of traffic. Signage is being made to direct the flow of traffic in and out of the parking lot and will be in place in the coming weeks. Please keep this in mind when you come to Mass each week.
SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION ~ Confessions have resumed, Saturdays from 4:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

STAINED GLASS WINDOW REPAIR~Our beautiful Stained Glass Windows have the tendency to buckle and bend with the heat and cold of the seasons. We have hired Mr. Dennis Luken who specializes in stained glass window restoration, to repair and secure our windows so this will not happen in the future. He is replacing the decaying lead and adding zinc to the edges to prevent buckling. Dennis has already started on the west side of the church and will continue on each window until all the windows are upgraded and repaired.
for CLEANING AND DISINFECTING THE CHURCH AFTER EACH MASS for the safety and well being of everyone!
MASS INTENTIONS ~ We are in need of Mass intentions for week-end & week day Masses. Please come to the Parish office and request Masses for living or deceased family members and friends. The usual offering is $10.00 per intention.
Beginning Sunday, September 6 we are resuming distribution of an abbreviated bulletin. The last bulletin distributed was Sunday, March 15 due to the outbreak of Corona Virus.
