Parish Announcements

PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTS

  • MyHANB.org is our online parish database.  There you can see what groups and ministries you are involved in or would like to join, can register for parish events, you can give electronically and see pledges and financial statements, and update your personal contact information.  Every parishioner with an active email address is already in the system.  This Tuesday, May 4th, anyone with an active email address that has never logged in to their account will receive an email invitation with simple instructions for getting the account set-up.  More information is in the bulletin and our weekly Flocknote email message.

  • Once you are logged in to your account you'll have the opportunity to register for many upcoming events.  Vacation Bible School and our Hot Ham and Rolls fellowship preorder, as well as volunteer registrations for both events are available now.  Registration is also available for our Gospel of Life Discussion series, which continues this Wednesday,  May 5th, and continues on the first Wednesday of each month through September.  Again more details are in the bulletin and on our website.

  • Please see our Lost and Found set-up this weekend and next in the Parish Center Lobby.  Unclaimed items will be donated to the St. Vincent De Paul Society as part of next weekend's clothing drive. 

  • The annual Mother's Day plant sale will be hosted by Boy Scout Troop 93 along National Avenue after all Masses next weekend.

  • Due to our COVID protocols, we have not been passing the Offertory basket during the Presentation of Gifts at Mass. If you would like to make a contribution, please do so in the wooden boxes at each of the church exits, or online at the bottom of the front page of our website. Thank you for your generosity!

SEE YOU AT MASS: CATHOLIC COMEBACK PHASE TWO

The dispensation to attend Sunday Mass expired September 2020 and we've welcomed many of you back to Mass! We also understand that returning to Mass during this time is an important decision that each person will make based on their personal situation. Whatever you choose, we welcome you back when you are ready!

 

Please know that we will continue all of the safety precautions that have been in place--wearing masks while in Church, adhering to social distancing guidelines and thorough sanitization of our space. To accommodate more families, we will open the balcony for seating, as well as add additional chairs for seating in the Welcome Center.

 

We also will continue to offer the live-stream Mass on Sundays at 9:15 a.m. for those who wish to attend from home!
