- Mass Schedule for Next Six Weeks: Please note that the Sunday Mass schedule for August and September looks a bit different. The Saturday 4:30pm Mass and Sunday 9am Mass will be the same (weekly preregistration required for in-person attendance). The schedule of Sunday 11:15am Mass (weekly preregistration is required) is different. There will be an 11:15am Mass at both St. Francis of Assisi and St. John Vianney on August 8th, 22nd, September 4th and 19th. There will not be an 11:15am Mass at St. John Vianney on August 15th, 29th or September 12th. On those Sundays, 11:15am Mass will take place at St. Elizabeth Seton. Please click here for details and information on how to preregister to attend.
- Closing Masses: The closing Mass at St. Francis of Assisi will happen on Sunday, September 19th. On Sunday, September 26th is the closing Mass for St. Elizabeth Seton. Archbishop Dunn will preside at these Masses and both will take place at 11:15am. Please pray for our community during this difficult time of transition.
- We're Hiring: In order to better care for our people in a large parish, we need to provide staffing for Growth Groups, allowing us to build a "community of communities", as per Pope Francis. Growth Groups are intentional and authentic small Christian communities where people are known, loved and cared for and faith is nurtured. We're thrilled that Kate Pinto has agreed to lead this new parish initiative (details to come in the weeks and months ahead). We congratulate Kate for taking on the new role of Grow Together Coordinator in addition to her role as the Serve Coordinator (formerly Coordinator of Ministries). This creates a need to fill the role that she is moving on from, which we are now calling the Encounter Coordinator. The Leadership Team and Finance Council, in consultation with the Archdiocese gave approval of the budget for this new part-time position. Click here for details and please pray for this entire process.
