From the Pastor – September 1st, 2020


Next Sunday. September 6th at 10:00 AM there will be a Mass in Honor of the Three Saints in the upper church.

As the upper church can only accommodate 150 persons because of the pandemic, the 10:00 AM Mass will be limited to St Alfio Society members and their families.

There will be a 9:00 AM English Mass on September 6th to accommodate our parishioners. Please be aware we need to move right along to allow time to sanitize the church before the St Alfio Mass at 10:00 AM.


Our religious education is in “limbo” so to speak. We are looking at several options, mostly on-line especially for the lower grades. Our first priority is the celebrate Baptisms for the 12 older children, Confessions [postponed from March], and First Holy Communion [postponed from last May]. Here are the new dates for the 2019-2020 religious education year:

Saturday, September 19th at 5:30pm BAPTISM for older children.

Saturday, October 3rd at 10:30am FIRST CONFESSIONS.

Saturday, October 17th at 10:30am FIRST HOLY COMMUNION.

These will all be celebrated in the upper church where masks are required and participants are to sign in.


Corpus Christi Parish, like most churches and other entities, is trying to stabilize its finances. Our parish has a great history, enriched by our various communities, and will have a great future with your help. Thanks to all who donate.


As of August 14th, as a parish, we’ve contributed $11,518 or 42% of our Catholic Appeal 2020 assessment of $27,511.
