We HOPE to celebrate an additional 8am & 11:15am Holy Mass in another building on campus.
This hope depends upon the availability of an additional priest.

Holy Mass Etiquette
HOLY MASS ETIQUETTE:
Appropriate, modest attire shows respect
for Our Lord Jesus Christ.
When you enter Church,
please keep all conversation,
both before and after Holy Mass,
restricted to the vestibule.
Entering and exiting the Church quietly
allows others to pray in peace.
When you enter the Church proper,
you enter THE THRONE ROOM of GOD -
JESUS is TRULY PRESENT in the tabernacle,
BODY, BLOOD, SOUL & DIVINITY.
Try to arrive 15 minutes before
the celebration of Holy Mass
in order to prepare to receive Our Lord and
PLEASE remain until Holy Mass has ended -
when the Celebrant processes from the Sanctuary.
Don't forget to take time thank GOD for the
Glorious Gift of JESUS in HOLY EUCHARIST.
In charity, show kindness to all and provide a good example.
THANK YOU for your desire to
please Our Lord in His Holy Church.
