Due to the pandemic with its social distancing & safety protocols, pre-registrations are highly encouraged in order to attend a Sunday Mass in Eastern Pastoral Care Area 4. The pre-registration links close every Thursday at 1pm before each weekend. Walk-ins are welcome, but will be seated in the designated overflow seating areas in each church.
Thank you for your cooperation, and Happy Easter!
