Please, of course, feel free to attend Mass at any one of the parishes (or other nearby parishes) at whatever time works best for you and your family.  Please plan ahead and be proactive to make sure that you will be at Mass on these Holy Days.  An old friend of mine used to say “failure to prepare is preparing to fail.”  Let’s all be sure that we are preparing to come to Mass on these Holy Days and especially on the Holy Days of Obligation.

God be near,

Father Jeremy
