MYPARISH APP
The MyParish App is available from your Android and Apple smartphone app stores. This app contains information, calendars, and bulletins from our own four parishes, as well as daily readings, meditations, prayers, Catholic news, and much more. It can also be used to find churches and Mass times in your area when you are away from home.
