Refreshments will be served in the hall following the evening mass.
We encourage parishioners to attend the Special 7:00 p.m. Mass and Celebration! This is the annual event in which we honour and pay special homage to the patron Saint of our beautiful church.

Remembering our loved ones during the month of November
A basket will be available at the base of the altar for you “All Souls’ envelopes”. Write the names of deceased family members and friends on the envelope, and enclose your offering. Place envelopes in the basket. The office staff will enter those listed on the envelopes into the “Book of Souls”. The “Book of Souls” and the basket will remain at the altar for the entire month of November and those names therein will be prayed for at all Masses during the month of November.
