Visitation of the Sick: Please notify the Parish Office when a member of the Parish is in the hospital or if someone is unable to attend Mass and wishes to receive Communion.

Persons with Celiac Disease: Persons with this challenge are usually unable to receive the normal wheat host used for Mass. We provide a separate chalice for the reception of Holy Communion at each Mass. As the Eucharistic Ministers are receiving Holy Communion at the altar, please come forward to the front of the Church and someone will bring the chalice for you to receive the Precious Blood.
