When you visit
Visiting a new church can be intimidating: What should I wear? Where do I park? Where do my kids go?
We understand the many thoughts that can come from visiting a new church, so we want you to feel completely comfortable when you visit. Below are some frequently asked questions. If you have any additional questions, don't hesitate to contact us or talk with an usher when you visit.

What should I wear?
We want you to feel comfortable. After all, we are thrilled that you're joining us and want you to be more focused on the service than what you're wearing. In the summertime, it's not uncommon to see people wearing sandals, shorts, and a shirt. Others prefer to still put on their "Sunday best," and that's fine too!
Where do my children go?
The simple answer is in the pews with the congregation. There is a "cry room" available to the right of the Altar if you are more comfortable.
I'm not catholic... so, how do I know when to sit, stand, and kneel?
Instructions on when to sit, stand and kneel are found in the missalette. There are several missalettes in each pew
I'm not catholic... is it okay for me to participate in communion?
Canon Law states that only Catholics can receive Holy Communion. Non-Catholics can come forward during Communion and receive a blessing, if they wish.
Am I expected to put money in the offering?
No offering is necessary but Sunday contributions do help pay expenses and parish upkeep
