Our Lady of Perpetual Help
A triduum to mark the feast of Our Lady under this beloved title (June 27th) will be conducted June 26th-28th. The Friday evening Mass will be of Our Lady of Perpetual Help.

Next Sunday
Set your missal: The Feast of Ss. Peter and Paul. Gloria & Credo, Preface of the Apostles. Proper Last Gospel of the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost. Commemoration of the Seventh Sunday after Pentecost and of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. Confessions will be heard before and or during all Masses. Special early Vespers and Benediction at 1:10 PM.

Alter Christus
Thank you for your generous offerings which will enable us to have six Masses offered for the material and spiritual support of our priests.

Dress Code
Summer is here and the temperature is warm but, ladies please remember to dress modestly and not wear sleeveless, sheer or revealing tops to church. Men must wear a coat and tie to Sunday Mass. Our church is kept cool so that you can easily follow this common sense dress code.

Church Support
With vacation and travel during the summer it’s easy to overlook things. Please don’t forget to mail in your weekly contribution if you are away from home. Our expenses never take a vacation!
