How do I secure seats for my family?

      Masks are mandatory in the church, in the gym, and any interior space on December 24 & 25.

      At all other Masses, masks are strongly encouraged.

    Personally, I think it’s shameful to have to reserve seats for Christmas Masses! To tell people “ sorry you can’t come in and worship the Lord today without a reservation “. Every other empty row is the devil sitting there with a big grin on his face!

    Hi Mike,
    With the COVID numbers as they are, I would like to release my seats that I initially reserved. How do I proceed?
    Thank you for your help!

      I will let Father Vince know. He’s creating seating charts based on reservations.
