15 May 2020

Dear Parishioners:

So many have been asking for the Church to open.  Unfortunately, we still cannot celebrate a public Mass.  Nonetheless, there are now opportunities for you to take advantage of spiritual elements of our Catholic faith both sacramental (Confession/Reconciliation) and non-sacramental (Eucharistic Adoration/private prayer).  It is a rather robust schedule to where very few can say they cannot visit our Churches. 

Only one door will be opened at each Church.  Transfiguration Church, the door to the right as you face the outdoor artwork in the lower parking lot.  Saint Victor, the door with the handicap ramp.  Please responsibly stay within the guidelines.

God Bless,

Fr.  Jim
