Mass Attendance Option

While we are still in the midst of the COVID-19 situation, we have opened additional seating in Noll Hall to accommodate the social distancing protocols.  If anyone would like to view the mass from Noll Hall, you will also be able to receive Holy Communion as one of the clergy members will bring the Eucharist to you in the Hall.  If you have any questions when you get to the church, please contact one of the ushers.


Click here for the revised certificate order form.  While we are limiting the available choices, there are still many of your favorites on the list:  Wendy's; Target; Amazon; Burger King; Bed, Bath & Beyond; Kremer's Market; and many, many more.

Please email your order to [email protected], print off the order form and drop it off in the collection on the weekend, or slip it in the key slot at the Parish Office.  We will see to it that your order is processed, and, upon completion of the order, we will contact you to make pickup arrangements.
