    Angels Among Us

    During Advent we have a small cut-out of angels available near the Christmas Tree. You can write messages or the names of your loved living and loved deceased relatives and friends on the angels and then place them on the Christmas Tree in the Sanctuary.

    This will be our prayer and a reminder that those who have gone before us remain part of our Christian family.

    Please be advised that the Wednesday night mass at 7 PM is available for multiple mass intentions this is to ensure that you’re able to have your loved ones names mentioned at one of our masses.
