Msgr. O'Grady's Letter on Sunday Masses Beginning July 4-5

The dispensation for the obligation to attend Sunday Mass has been extended to November 28th by Archbishop Blair.  This is given due to the uncertainty of the increase of the Covid virus and to allow all our Catholics not to feel compelled to attend given the risks to health. Please note that our Sunday Mass is live-streamed on every Sunday at 9:30 AM.

Weekday Masses are held Monday through Friday at 7:30 AM and on Saturday at 8:30 AM at St. Mary Church. Face coverings must be worn and social distancing is required. if Holy Communion is received, it must be in the hand. The church will be cleaned after every Mass and hand sanitizers will be available at Church entrances. Those with underlying health conditions or who are of a vulnerable age should be cautious about attending.


To all who are tired and need rest;
to all who mourn and need comfort;
to all who are discouraged and need hope;
to all who are homeless and need sheltering love;
to all who sin and need a Savior;
to whomsoever will this church open wide its doors
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
