Jim notes the following:
On April 18th there will be Holy Thursday Mass at 7:00 PM. We’re expecting approximately 400 people. One of my favorite Masses! As long as my feet are not being washed. Please try to greet and welcome everyone. There will be no collections, therefore no ushers needed.

On April 19th there will be Good Friday Mass at 1:15 PM We’re expecting approximately 450 people. Not everyone gets this day off. If you’re available, please try to greet, welcome everyone, and possibly help the ushers with collections.

On April 21st, there will be Easter Mass at 9:30 AM. No assigned seating except by the choir where Joan Schenck will have the school participants sit in the first few pews. We’re expecting approximately 1000 people. Fr. Michael is requesting 8 well-dressed ushers to assist in seating and with collections. I’m hoping to have assigned Ushers to assist with seating and collections. Would absolutely love if we had a strong Greeter presence at every door to welcome all the visitors that could be future parishioners!

On May 4th, there will be a Confirmation Mass with Bishop Cantu at 10:00 AM. No assigned seating except by the choir where Joan Schenck will have the school participants sit in the first few pews.
