An Important Mass Time Change Announcement!

The 11:00 am Sunday Morning Mass will be moved up to 10:00 am beginning on Memorial Day Weekend (May 29th, 2016).

This Mass will be celebrated at 10:00 am May 29th through September 4th (Labor Day Weekend).

So remember, Memorial Day Weekend through Labor Day Weekend, if you come to celebrate Sunday Mass at the Basilica at 11:00 am, you will only be in time to say goodby to those who did attend the 10:00 am Mass. LOL!

You may want to mark your calendar if you regularly attend the 11:00 am Mass so that you recall to attend an hour earlier during the summer which will enable you to have a longer day following Mass.

We are in great need of additional Gift Shop Volunteers.

We need volunteers Thursday thru Monday for one or two hours (or, whatever you are available).

Please call the Parish Office (575) 526-9349.
