Saints Philiip and James, Apostles 3 May 2018

Why do we celebrate the feasts of St. Philip and St. James the Less on the same day? Because they were both apostles? No, we celebrate them on the same day because their relics were brought to Rome together on the same day in early May. They rest there still, in the Basilica of the…

Winter 2018 Schedule Change

By Lisa Borzage | October 24, 2018

Due to the drop off in attendance during the winter months, there is no need for three Sunday Masses. In order to make the celebration more worthy and fuller, we will combine the 10am Mass and the 12:15pm Mass into one Mass at 11:30am. This will also make it easier to schedule Lectors, EM’s and…
