In an effort to better accommodate you, our gluten-free parishioners, please call the parish office at 416-3325 with your name, phone number, email address and the Mass time you usually attend. Then continue to check the bulletin for future updates on receiving a gluten-free host. Thanks for your patience as we work through a solution to better serve you.
To better accommodate parishioners, we are adding an extra hour of confessions for each Saturday of Lent. Confessions will be heard each Saturday from 3:00 until 4:30 P.M. Confessions end at 4:30 even if there is a line. Please respect that the priest needs that time to prepare for the 5:00 P.M. Mass.
Lenten Communal Reconciliation will be on Tuesday, March 12 at 7:00 P.M.
PARISH LENTEN GIVING: OPERATION RICE BOWL

Rice Bowls were distributed on Ash Wednesday – additional bowls will be available for pick-up in the RE office.
