First Saturday Devotions
Please join us on the first Saturday of every month (starting December 5th) to renew our dedication to our Lord through the intercession of Mary. We will begin with Mass at 9:00 am followed by adoration, confessions, and a Rosary at 9:30 am. Adoration will conclude at 10:30 am.
