THE BROADWAY ASSISTANCE CENTER is in need of toiletries for their clients. Please leave your donations in the designated container in the reception area. Thank you for your generosity.

INTINCTION is administered on the pulpit side of the altar rail, where the chalice is always administered by the ordained clergy. Please be sure to receive on this side if you receive by intinction. Intinction will be administered using the entire altar rail for the time being, at 8:00 am only. This is due to there being only one priest to administer the sacrament at 8:00 am 10:00 am will remain as before.
