Please join us for First Friday Liturgy, a Mass service followed by a Novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, plus a special speaking session by Father Bud Stevens. Attend in person in the main church for both Mass and the session, or attend both via livestream!
Mass: 6:30pm / Speaking Session: 7:00 - 8:00 pm
Due to COVID-19 restrictions we will NOT be hosting our traditional fellowship meal at this time. Mass and the speaker session will both be held in the main church.
The Church: Who We are as the People of God
Fr. Bud Stevens of St. Mary's Seminary will present his session on a reflection of what it means to be the People of God in challenging times. How must we be the People of God today?
If you participate via livestream, you will still have the opportunity to ask questions live via the chat feature and participate in the session along with those in the church!
