Option 1: In-Person, Wednesdays for Grades 1-8, 5 pm – 6:15 pm
Option 2: In-Person, Sundays for Grades 1-8, 10 am – 11:15 am

NOTE: If there is low enrollment for a grade level, we may need to combine grades or cancel the grade level.

Students with families are invited to attend the 9 am Mass weekly. Celebrating the Eucharist together strengthens the bonds between us, increasing the unity and effectiveness as one Parish. Once a month, the RE program will host the Family Mass, please check the calendar for details.
