***Snow Cancellation Policy***
Generally we try not to cancel Mass unless the weather poses a potential danger. If Mass or another event is cancelled, the cancellation will be posted here on the parish website at least 45 minutes before the scheduled event. If there is no cancellation notice, it is safe to assume that the event is not cancelled.
Below is a calendar of events for the season of Lent. Please join us as we prepare for the coming of Easter. As always, COVID-19 precautions will be in place.
PLEASE JOIN US - ALL MASSES can now be attended in-person in the Church at the regular Mass times indicated in the left-hand column on this page. COVID-19 precautions are being taken to ensure the health and safety of our community. While capacity limitations are in place, we have enough space in our church to accommodate as many parishioners as needed, while meeting COVID-19 requirements. Please wear a face mask and follow the guidelines below at all times while in the church. Please note: Archbishop Gregory has issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass due to the Covid-19 breakout.
If you are uncomfortable attending Sunday Mass in person, head to our Facebook page for recorded masses or the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on Sundays at 12pm for a live-streamed mass.
A short Communion Service is offered in the Gathering Space of the main church at 12:00pm immediately following the 10:45am in-person Mass if you prefer to enter the church for a shorter period of time.

Everyone is asked to bring their own hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes and to wipe down their pews before and after Mass.
