The FEST, celebrating its 20th year, is moving online this year due to corona-virus pandemic. It will have all the same features as in past years, but there will be a new presentation. FEST organizers say it will be a “Glorious” event, refer-ring to this year’s theme. The FEST@home will be available for everyone to watch in the comfort of their own homes, with dozens of sites visitors can go to in order to follow all the traditional activities, including praying the rosary, Adoration, prayer intentions and more.

First Reconciliation is being offered at our regular Saturday confession times: 4-4:30pm. First Communion will be celebrated Saturday, Sept. 12, 2020 at 1pm. The second grade families can expect an instruction video via email the week of 7/6/20 to explain more about these upcoming events.
Confirmation has been rescheduled for Saturday, Oct. 3 at 1pm. A day of reflection and review is set for Saturday, Sept. 19 for our Confirmation candidates. St. Hilary has kindly offered our candidates the option of being confirmed there on Sunday, Sept. 20 as an alternative date if our Oct. 3 date conflicts with their family plans.
It is with a sad heart that I have to in-form our parish we have cancelled our annual Parish Picnic. Due to the challenges of Covid-19, diocesan directives and safety guidelines concerning parish festivals and picnics, I think it is in the best interest of our parish to cancel and be ready for a larger, more anticipated celebration in 2021.
With the summer weather upon us, we will be starting the Healing Rosary on August 3rd @ 7:00pm, in-front of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Shrine. Hope to see you there!
Please bring your own lawn chair!
