Confessions

Confessions will be available on Saturday from 4:00 pm-4:45 pm in the Choir Room (former cry room). 
 

Daily Mass

Monday thru Friday Daily Mass will begin Friday, June 19, which is the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Mass will be at its usual 8:15 am time. Because we do not expect a large group on weekdays, you do not need to pre-register. However, we will still have you sign in when you arrive (a sign in is required as part of Archdiocesan requirements to keep track of attendees in case there is any need for contact tracing. Thank you for your understanding).

Lend a helping handWant to help the community in a simple but very meaningful way?
 
Volunteer at Mass this weekend! You can help prepare the church for mass, check people in as they arrive, help seat people in the pews or help with clean up. We have so many people willing to help out but we know that summer is a busy time so new volunteers continue to be needed.
 
To sign up to volunteer, please fill out this online sign up form. If you are new, please sign up for a spot on the sign up form and also email Diane Lawrence at d.moriarty@ascensionoakpark.com.
