    2018 Baptismal Renewal Mass

    On Sunday, January 7, 2018 we celebrated a baptismal renewal mass for all the babies who were baptized at our Church in the past year and a half. It was a joy having some the children join us. Thank you for coming out in the cold. We hope to do it again next year for the children receiving their baptism this year.
