Important Announcement and Invitation from Fr. Richards
These are challenging times, but as a Church, we are called to respond in faith. To that end, Fr. Richards has an important announcement to share concerning his role as pastor for St. Albert and St. Michael parishes—and a special invitation for everyone to join him and Fr. Joe in celebrating the Easter Vigil Mass next Saturday, April 11. Please take a few minutes to watch his video message below or read his letter to parishioners—and please pray for our priests and parishes.
Redesigned Homepage with Holy Week Content
