Mass in January: Change of Date

The next TLM will be on the LAST Sunday in January, the 27th, as Father Quinn will be away earlier in the month. Therefore, we will have two TLM's in a row: January 27 and February 3. The January 27 Mass will also be followed by a NACF (National Association of Catholic Families) picnic.

Merry Christmas!
