Parishioners are asked to be aware of an email scam going throughout the Archdiocese that alleges that one of the priests is trying to reach out to you to purchase gift cards.  Consider such emails as suspect.  Better to delete than to open.  Call us at the rectory instead.

As information continues to be revealed about the clergy members credibly accused of sexual misconduct with youth, in our archdiocese and our state, please consult the website https://healing.rcan.org for the latest official information and a list of resources in response to this issue. 

Adults seeking entrance into the Catholic Church from other denominations or no denomination, as well as adult Catholics who have not received First Penance, First Communion, or Confirmation, are invited to contact Deacon Jim or Fr.
