How to Find Us

Attending Mass with us:

 

> We encourage walking and car-pooling as much as possible due to limited parking at and around the church. Please be mindful of nearby residents and city regulations about vehicle parking.

> Parking is available at the curbs around the church and in the church parking lots on Lower Terrace Road and in the back parking lot of the church. PLEASE do not block any exits, pathways, or driveways.

> We request members of the congregation to turn their cell phones on silent mode or off while attending Mass. During visits outside of Mass, please maintain reverence and be mindful of other visitors using the peace and quiet for prayer and reflection.

> Lost and found items are usually turned in to the sacristy. Please contact the parish priest or a parish volunteer to retrieve a lost item. If you return outside of Mass times, please call the church phone number to get access to the lost & found.

> After the 9:00AM Sunday Mass, we welcome you to join us for coffee, juice, and light snacks in the courtyard provided by our volunteers. A donation jar is usually set up and all monies go directly to supporting parish operations.

Also take a minute to check out the Art & Architecture section of the website for explanations and descriptions of the various mosaics, stained glass, statues, oratories, and other works of art around our parish.
