During the summer months, many of our parishioners are travelling or at camp. Last summer our building, which seats about 500 people, had about 60 people at the 11:00am Mass. With so many people away, it gets difficult to schedule ushers, readers, servers, musicians and ministers of communion, who also appreciate a chance to get away with family. And a largely empty church makes for a less-than-inspiring celebration for all.
We have decided to combine our two Sunday Masses into one for the months of July-September; and so, beginning the weekend of July 5-6, and ending the weekend of September 27-28, we will have
Saturday 4:00pm Mass
Sunday 10:00am Mass
The weekend Mass schedule will return to normal for the weekend of October 4-5.
For the months of July and August, there will be no weekday 12:10 Masses; the Pathways Mass on the first Friday of the month, however, will continue through the summer.
