Solemnity of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary - NOT a Holy Day of Obligation this Year

The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is Saturday, August 15th. Because it falls on a Saturday this year, it is NOT a Holy Day of obligation. 

Centro Católico Relocates to HSCC Campus

Beginning next Sunday, August 16th, their Sunday Masses, in Spanish, will be in the Church at 7:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.  All are welcome to attend. Our regular schedule of Masses in English will continue as usual.
