We are happy to launch this new website and truly hope that you find it informative and easy to use. As you know, we have become a media-overwhelmed society and so for this new design, we tried to be inviting to the eye and, at the same time, a website that helps you to get the information for which you are looking.
Of note at this time of the year is our change to a summer schedule beginning in June, which you will notice in the “Mass Times” tab at the top of the page.
Welcome and thank you very much for your visit.
Fr. Thomas Hallsten
