In response to concerns over the coronavirus, all sacramental prep and all youth ministry sessions are cancelled until further notice. For those who are planning to receive the sacraments of Confirmation or First Communion, it is our current expectation that these masses will still take place, and a mandatory rehearsal will precede them. Please keep an eye on the church’s website, the bulletin, and any emails from the parish.
As we await further instructions from the diocese, please call Marcus Steer or Martha Ellis at the parish office if you have questions.
The sacrament of the Lord’s Supper is the source and summit of Christian life.

Youth (Grades 6-12) prepare for their First Communion through Youth Ministry.
Children and youth aged 8 or older who haven't been baptized must also participate in the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, adapted for children (RCIA for Children).
