WELCOMING BACK CELEBRATION BEING POSTPONED TILL SPRING OF 2022
Due to the resurgence of COVID cases and its variants, a show of hands was taken this past weekend to have a better idea of what at least those who attend Mass regularly thought in regards to whether we go ahead as planned to have the Welcome Back Cele-bration on September 19 or whether it would be best to postpone it till the Spring of 2022. The show of hands clearly indicated that waiting until next Spring, probably in May or June would be better in the hopes that the positivity rate for COVID or its variants would have dropped to a safer level for everyone.
Eucharistic Adoration returns on Wednesday, September 8th. It begins every Wednesday following the 12:00pm Mass and concludes at 3:00pm.
