SPRING THAW CANCELED - FIRST TIME IN ITS 25 YEARS. We are over 1/2 way to our $25,000 original goal - THANK YOU!! and you are still able to donate - see below!
Thought for the times: Relative to the Governor's Mandate:
We have offerings for Individual Reconciliation, the church open from 8am-6pm daily, and available Adoration 24/7 to come as you wish. However, our main goal should be to keep others and ourselves safe as we are mandated by our Governor to ‘stay home’ and only be out of our homes for food/medical/gas/exercise. Use your judgment—but staying home and away from others is the best practice.
St. Joseph's: Wednesdays at 6pm and Saturdays at 11am
St. Augustine's: Sundays 7:30am
