Having reviewed the input from the survey, a significant majority (91%) was disposed to the move of the 8:30 Sunday Mass to 8:00 AM to accommodate transition between Masses and sacramental preparation classes. A comparable percentage was favorable to the change of the weekday evening Mass from 7:30 to 7:00. The addition of a 5:00 PM Mass on Sundays was considered more of a convenience by most than a necessity.
With this in mind, please note that, effective Sunday, September 8, the 8:30 AM Mass will be moved up a half hour to 8:00 AM (confessions begin at 7:15). In that same week, the Masses on Monday and Friday evenings will begin at 7:00 PM (Exposition on Fridays will now begin at 5:30 with Benediction at 6:45). The addition of a 5:00 PM Mass on Sundays is under consideration. Thank you to all who participated in the survey.
