Did You Know: Our Parish Office has extended its Saturday hours from 8 am to 12:00 p.m. Drop by to register for the parish, arrange for a mass card, or sign up in person for any of our Lenten events and opportunities.

Our full Ash Wednesday schedule is available here and in our Parish bulletin. The Masses on Ash Wednesday will all be in the Serra Center.

If you are attending the 12 noon Mass, please use the Mission Parking Lot to park. This prevents running into traffic from Scholarship Prep school’s early dismissal.
