Covid-19 Updates Related to Parish Liturgies and Programs
Our team of dedicated volunteers is making the difficult decision to cancel our Sunday Drive-In Masses through the end of this month. There will be no 10AM Drive in this Sunday, Feb. 21st or next Sunday, Feb 28th as we resolved some icing issues around our outdoor altar, doorways and hills.
The 10AM Mass will be celebrated privately by Fr. Dennis and streamed live on our parish website. Simply go to www.sacredheart311.com and click "Watch Mass" to tune in. The Mass will also be posted to our YouTube station after the live stream ends and can be viewed throughout the day.
There will be in-person Masses today, Sat. Feb. 20th and next week, Sat. Feb. 27th at 4:00 PM. If you wish to attend, please reserve your space ahead of time using this link: Click here.
Thank you for your continued understanding and patience as we work to provide faith opportunities with the health & safety of all in mind during these unprecedented times.
We are hopeful that we will be able to resume our Drive-in during the month of March as long as mild weather begins to move in. God bless, The Parish Staff
