MASS BOOK
There are many openings for Masses to be offered for your intentions so please call the rectory or stop by. Mass offerings are very comforting for people who have recently lost a loved one.


LOST AND FOUND
We have a collection of clothing that was either left in the classrooms, gym and/or auditorium during these past few months. Please feel free to come to the Religious Education Office and look through the articles. At the end of April, the clothing that has not been claimed will be donated to Martin de Porres.
