Mass Time Change

Beginning Nov. 29th new weekend Mass times are:

St. Gertrude:
Saturday: 4:30 p.m.
Sunday: 7:30a & 10:30 a.m.

St. Ann:
Saturday: 7:00 p.m.
Sunday: 9:00 a.m.

In the event only Fr. Phil or Fr. Bernie is available for all weekend Masses this will allow for ample time to celebrate each Mass. With the diminishing number of priests, it is increasingly difficult to find replacements in the absence of Fr. Phil or Fr. Bernie.

We will also make the following weekday Mass change due to the numerous evening meetings, of both parishes, requiring the presence of our Pastor St. Gertrude.

Tuesday—Mass & Perpetual Help Devotions 800 a.m.
Tuesday Confessions will be 7:30-7:45am

Thank you for your prayers and understanding in preparing for our short & long-term liturgical needs.
