Task Force

We’ve formed a COVID-19 Task Force to help plan for the many aspects of this gradual transition. The 12 members represent parishioners, staff, school, and public health. The members are: Judith Brusseau, Dino Campagnari, Lisa Dittmeier, Angela Grady, Beth Gray, Fr. Ben Hawley, S.J., Charlie Hennessy, Ashley Klick (Chair), Malcolm McCluskey, David Pennington, Michael Stoto, PhD, and Jim Thessin. The task force will make recommendations concerning when it may be safe to resume in-person ministries and how we might do so with the utmost consideration for the safety of our parishioners and staff.

Stay Connected

We invite you to follow the parish social media accounts to stay connected with God and each other. We are posting links to prayer and worship resources, opportunities to pray together, homilies on the daily readings each evening around 7am as well as a recorded Mass on Sundays. A new pray at-home guide will be shared next week. We will continue to share more resources as this crisis continues.
