The 2020 Mass Book for Mass intentions will be open on Saturday, November 2, 2019 from 9am to 1pm in the Lower Church. Since the Church provides for the celebration of the Blessed Mother, Angels and Saints, we will only accept Mass intentions for LIVING AND DECEASED FAMILY AND FRIENDS. The only exception will be for the annual July feast of St. Pantaleone, since this is not on the church calendar. By limiting our Mass intentions to family members and friends, more people will have the opportunity to have Mass intentions for their loved ones.

Forms will be available in the Gathering Room for you to take home and fill out ..DO NOT RETURN THE FORM TO THE RECTORY OFFICE, BUT BRING THE FORM WITH YOU ON SATURDAY, THE 2ND. NO MASS INTENTIONS WILL BE ACCEPTED BEFORE THE 2ND. Mass intentions will be for 2 weekend Masses and two weekday Masses.
