Spiritual Life

Celebration of Mass

Daily Mass is celebrated Monday, Wednesday and Thursday at 8:00 am.

Weekend Masses are celebrated at 4:30 pm on Saturdays,
and at 8:30 am and 10:30 am on Sundays.

Eucharistic Adoration

Spend some quiet time with Christ every Thursday at Eucharistic Adoration in our Holy Family Chapel.

Reconciliation & Communal Penance

The Sacrament of Reconciliation is celebrated every Saturday, 3:00 to 4:00 pm, as well as the Thursday prior to the First Friday of the month from 7:30-8:00 pm. Communal Celebrations of Penance are scheduled during Advent and Lent. Additional individual confession sessions are scheduled prior to Christmas and Easter, or you may schedule a confession by calling the parish office.


Baptism of Infants

Parents intending to have their child baptized are required to participate in a Baptism class designed to deepen their understanding of this sacrament and renew their faith.  We suggest that classes be attended before the birth of the child.  The parish office is glad to assist you in the scheduling of the class and the Baptism. 

First Reconciliation

Children in the second grade, both in our school and Faith Formation Program, begin preparation in the fall to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation at a special penance service in early spring.  For more information on this sacrament, contact Nicole Bettini. 

First Holy Communion

Children in the second grade, both in our school and Faith Formation Program, who have received the Sacrament of Reconciliation, may prepare to receive their First Holy Communion at a special Mass every spring.  For more information on this sacrament, contact Nicole Bettini. 


Preparations for the Sacrament begin in our Junior High Religious Education program and continue with our early High School formation.  Candidates receive the Sacrament in 10th grade.  For more information on this sacrament, contact Nicole Bettini. 

Sacrament of Marriage

Engaged couples intending to marry should contact the parish priest at least six months before the marriage is to take place. Marriage preparation includes completion and discussion of the FOCCUS premarital inventory, attending a marriage preparation weekend, meeting with a mentor couple in the parish and preparing the wedding liturgy. 

Sacrament of the Sick

We offer a communal sacramental anointing of the sick once a year during the fall. However, if you wish or need to receive the sacrament at any other time, please call the parish office. 






We are a Catholic community which seeks to be a living sign of Jesus Christ in  His saving love for the kingdom.
Thus the people forming the parish family are  called by God to respond to this mission in unity with the Spirit, 
through  their worship, witnessing and service to one another.
