October we once again began the 5:00pm Sunday Mass. This was on a trial basis.
Unfortunately, the attendance has been very low. At this time we are going to
suspend the Mass. Perhaps we can revisit this at another time or at a later
date. Our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause. Our Saturday night
5:00 Mass will continue as well as the 7:30, 9:00 and 10:30 Sunday Masses.
