Questions/Comments/Suggestions... We want to hear from you!

If you have questions, comments or suggestions regarding our parish please contact one of your Council members OR... you can now drop us a note in the Offertory!

The Parish Council discussed using a Comment Box in the back of church but decided instead to use the offertory collection basket as their “Comment Box”. 

So, if you have any questions/comments/suggestions you would like to voice, please jot them down, place in an envelope labeled "Parish Council" and drop it in the offertory at any weekend Mass. 

Your Parish Council will review all notes at their monthly Parish Council Meeting. 

Please include your name and contact information and one of us will get back to you.
