ASH WEDNESDAY SERVICES: See Service Times on Home Page 

·       For the sick:  Anyone wishing to take ashes to a sick relative or shut-in can do so by bringing a small envelope and picking up a SMALL amount of ashes after the services and Masses.
·       Children:  Since the reception of ashes is a sign of repentance, pre-school age children do not receive ashes. 

SACRAMENT OF THE ANOINTING OF THE SICK will be celebrated after all Masses the weekend of Feb. 24-25.  This Sacrament is for anyone of any age who is experiencing spiritual, emotional, or physical duress, such as chronic illness, terminal illness, or upcoming surgery.  Fr. Jack Nanz and Fr. Thom Dansak will be here. 

SACRAMENT OF RECONCILIATION will be celebrated after all Masses the weekend of March 17-18. Fr. Jack Nanz and Fr. Thom Dansak will be here.
