Liturgy Schedule: all St. Jude Daily Masses (Mon-Fri) will be held at8 a. m. inSt. Mary’s,Dorrance.

Temporary Liturgy Schedule: Due to the final stages of construction of the new church, the following temporary changes are in effect: Saturday and Sunday Masses at St. Jude will be in the gym.

There will be one daily Mass at St. Mary with a St. Jude intention and a St. Mary intention. (The Church provides for two intentions at one Mass for emergency pastoral reasons and a short period of time. This will enable us not to fall behind on daily mass intentions. We will return to one intention for daily Masses when new church is completed.)

All funerals, weddings, baptisms will be celebrated at St. Mary Church during this time

Sacrament of Reconciliation will be held at 4:30 p. m. at St. Mary’s or by appointment. While we have Mass in the gym there will not be 3 p. m. confessions at St. Jude

Extraordinary ministers of communion for weekday visits will go to St. Mary for the Eucharist.

Gift Cards can be picked up or purchased at the table in the hallway outside the main entrance to the gym as usual around the Sunday Masses
