A few friendly reminders...
If you plan on attending mass in the parking lot, please remain in your vehicle for the duration of mass. You do not have to wear a mask while in your car, except at the reception of communion. You may remove your mask after receiving communion.

For those who attend mass inside the church, please sit in the designated areas. A face mask must be worn at all times while in the church. At the reception of communion, you will receive the Eucharist in your hand, step to the side, pull your face mask down to take communion, and then replace your mask. Thank you for helping us all to be as safe as possible.

You are encouraged to watch the live-stream of the Mass on your phone while in your car.
Or listen to it on one of our conference lines:

In assessing our needs as we slowly resume our sacramental life in our parish, we have determined that help will be needed on the weekends to clean and sanitize the church. Please call the parish office if you are willing to volunteer

The church is open for individual prayer 6:30 am to 7:00 am Monday-Saturday (live streamed on conference call above), and 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm Monday-Thursday. Visitors are advised to wear a mask when in the church.

New Parish Office Hours
Office Hours are Monday-Friday, 9 am to 12 noon, Wednesdays, 1 pm to 5 pm. The doors to the parish office will be locked, but please call us when you get here and we will meet you at the door.


We have received phone calls in the office from some parishioners informing us that they received a text message from Rev. Theophine Okafor requesting a favor and for them to text him as soon as they got his message. Please know that Fr. Theo has not sent any texts to anyone asking for a favor. If you receive a message from Fr. Theo, please do not reply. This is a scam. Please pass the the word along that this is a scam. Thanks for your help!


Parishioners, during this quarantine you can send your weekly donation to the parish office.


You may still call the parish office to make mass intentions. Those intentions will be said during daily mass at 7 am in the church.

Parishioners now that masses are not being held publicly in our state, we would like to remind everyone to please continue with your weekly offerings to the church. The church will continue to receive their bills and being that masses are not said, the Church does not have that money coming in. You also have the option to write a check. Please mail you donation to the parish offices above. We sincerely thank you for your generosity. God bless you abundantly. Please feel free to give the Parish Office a call with any questions at (575)524-9649. Thank you.
