Mass Registration During Covid Protocols
Please register for your choice of mass by clicking on the link below. There will be a limited number of spaces for walk ins and it would be a horrible experience to have to turn people away after our “safe” capacity has been reached. If you would prefer to reserve by phone you can call the parish (705-652-3095).
