  • Please turn off your cell phones and watch alarms before entering the Chapel. Make sure they are muted or turned off so that they do not ring or vibrate during Mass. Also, remind guests that attend Mass with you to turn off their cell phones.
  • Thank you to those who helped with binding the Liturgical Calendars this last week. The next binding session will be this Saturday after Mass, if anyone wishes to assist us in this project.
