Mass celebrated by Bishop Hanefeldt will begin at 9:30AM, outside in the area that the new sanctuary is being built. We ask that you bring lawn chairs if you have them or are able to move them. The groundbreaking ceremony will follow immediately after Mass, then a lunch will be served. Meat and drinks are provided. Those whose last names begin with A-K, please bring a salad to share. If your last name begins with L-Z, please provide a dessert. Activities for all ages will also be available.

(Please note there will only be one Mass celebrated on Sunday August 5th. The Saturday night Mass will be celebrated at the normal time.)
