Our weekly invitations to Mass have all been sent out. Unfortunately, even with the increase in the number of people allowed in the church, we still can’t accommodate everyone each weekend. Those that weren’t invited this weekend will be the first parishioners invited next weekend.
Again, we have to stress how important it is for you to respond to both email and phone invitations, even if you aren’t going to be able to come that weekend. If we know you can’t attend, that means that we have an additional spot to offer to someone else.
