  • phony emails and phone calls

    UPDATE 4/17/19:


    Someone with an affiliation with the parish (parishioner, staff, etc.) had their address book hacked.  The hackers are using the email addresses and, in some instances phone numbers, to impersonate Fr. Steve or  Msgr. Carroll and social engineer others in that address book.  Don’t respond to any of these solicitations.  To protect yourself, please change your email password as you could have been the  party compromised.    Please delete these emails.  No one from the Parish will be sending emails requesting favors.  Thank you!

    • These three days of Holy Week are one continuous celebration of our salvation. They begin with Holy Thursday and end with the Easter Vigil. Parishioners are invited to attend all three days of the Triduum. On Holy Thursday, parishioners are invited to bring bells to the Mass of the Lord’s Supper and ring them during the singing of the Gloria. After Mass there will be a procession to the Chapel where the Blessed Sacrament will be reserved until midnight for adoration. On Good Friday, confessions will be heard from 12noon until 1:30pm before the celebration of the Lord’s Passion and Death at 3pm. In the evening the Stations of the Cross will be recited. On Saturday after sundown at 7:30pm, the Easter Vigil will commemorate the Resurrection of Christ. At this celebration we will welcome new members into the Catholic faith.
