February House Masses

During the month of February, Pope Francis asks the Church to focus on building up the parish community. We would like to celebrate masses in the homes of our parishioners for groups of people who either live in the same neighborhood or belong to particular groups, if you are able to host a house mass please email the parish office with your details. This will help us in the process of establishing parish cell groups or “connect groups”.
