St. John Paul the Great Parish doors are now open for the public celebration of weekday Masses, baptisms, wedding Masses and funeral Masses. All safety procedures and precautions are being followed.
Archbishop Blair extended the dispensation for Sunday Mass through Sun, Sep. 6. The date for the resumption of public celebration of Sunday Mass is yet to be announced.
We will continue live streaming & videos of weekday and Sunday Masses so that all will be able to participate and remain connected with our parish family. Click here for schedule updates. If you are planning on attending a public Mass or service, please review the guidelines.READ MORE
