Dear Parishioners,

One of the rituals that we always share during our Holy Thursday service is the “Washing of Feet”. As usual, we are asking for volunteers to have their feet washed during the service. In some instances, this could be a special Lenten sacrifice to offer up. There is a sign-up sheet for Foot Washing for the Holy Thursday Mass in the main entrance of the church for those who may be interested.

Your thoughtful consideration is appreciated.  Thank you!
