Current Announcements

St. Jude Stained Glass and Candle Stand

The Chapel has recently purchased a candle stand which has been blessed and is in the rear of the Chapel.  Those who light them usually say a prayer over one candle at a time, and by keeping these individual candles lit for extended periods of time, the individual prayer is believed to be prolonged and amplified along with the intentions of other believers' prayers.  This creates a collective spirit of prayer for the entire church that is comforting and empowering, because even when churchgoers leave, their prayers remain in the Church.

Mass Times and Confession

Mass is celebrated Monday through Friday at 11:35 a.m. and 12:15 p.m. Confessions are available weekly from 9:15-11:30am and 2:00-3:30pm.  Please call ahead for Priest’s availability. More on activities at the Chapel.
