Confessions: Monday & Friday
Time:   5pm to 6pm

DIRECTIONS: We ask penitents to wait in the center aisle behind the sign that says "Confession Line starts here." Fr. Hans will be seated behind a screen in one transept and Fr. Nick will be seated behind a screen in the other transept. Wait in the center aisle for your turn. Our doors will be propped open to avoid door contact. Please wear a mask over your mouth and nose.  We blocked off our water fountains so plan accordingly.

If you normally drop your gifts in the collection basket at Mass, you can now put them in the baskets near the nave entrance (four baskets on top of covered book racks). Or you can mail them to us. Or, better yet, switch to online giving. We check our mail every day during this pandemic.  Thank you for your continued financial support for parish ministry and for operating expenses.
