- Saturday, March 21: 11:00 am Holy Mass to celebrate the Anniversary of the Dedication of the Church. We are inviting priests who have served here over the years to join us. A reception will follow the Mass.

- Monday, March 23: 7:00 pm Holy Mass with Monsignor John C. Cregan, celebrant and homilist. Monsignor Cregan, as a layman and officer in the U.S. Marines Corps, was a catechist in our parish before he entered the seminary and became a priest.
- Tuesday, March 24: 7:00 pm Mass with Father Jose Eugenio Hoyos, celebrant, and homilist. March 24 is the Memorial of Saint Oscar Romero. Fr. Hoyos, who has been a part of this parish for many years and served in many ways, will highlight the vibrant Hispanic presence in our parish family.
- Wednesday, March 25, Solemnity of the Annunciation: 7:00 pm Mass will follow our all-day Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. At this Mass, we will consecrate the parish to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and ask Her intercession for our parish as we look forward to our next steps in responding to God’s call in our little part of His Church in the world.
Please begin thinking of your best memories of the last 50 years. Contact Fr. Z. or Fr. Killian if you would like to be part of the accomplishment of these events (and/or others).
