Don't Miss Our Coming Events:
Happy Easter season dear people of God, and many thanks to you most faithful parishioners for your continuous support to our parish’s financial needs. Your graciousness in sending in your collections and donations are greatly appreciated. Please do continue.
Moreover, many of you have responded quickly to getting yourself vaccinated as required, just as I did on the 6th of this Month (April), and hoping to complete it in subsequent Months. This is the best way we could overcome this pandemic and come back together again. Please be encouraged to get it done as soon as you can.
Thank you once again and may God bless us all as we play our part to keep each other safe.
--Fr. Collins Okafor, SMMM

NORTHERN DEANERY – Effective Monday, April 19, 2021, Bishop Miehm gives his permission for the Sunday and weekday Masses to be celebrated publicly with 10 people (including the priest and liturgical ministers) if the pastors feel that it is safe and feasible to do so.
