WHAT DO I DO WITH BLESSED PALMS????  Have you ever wondered to do with palm branches blessed on Palm Sunday?  If you have blessed palms from years past, this is your opportunity to clean your house.  We are asking all parishioners to bring them back to the church on Sunday, February 4.  There will be baskets available at the entrance of the church for the palms.

NO MASS DURING THE WEEK of JANUARY 15TH THRU 19TH: Father Olivier will be on retreat in San Juan this entire week of January 15th thru 19th.  Therefore, Mass will NOT be celebrated this week.  However, Father Olivier encourages those who attend weekly Mass to pray Liturgy of the Hours (Morning Prayer). Please keep the Diocesan clergy in your prayers.
