How To Practice Our Faith During COVID-19

The following will be offered to maintain the faith life of our community:

 

Sunday Masses: Will be privately celebrated by a priest at 7AM, 9AM, 11AM, 1PM (Español), and 6PM and will be live streamed on both our website and Facebook for you to join in prayer at home. We recommend creating a “sacred space” around your streaming device using icons and Catholic art that you have at home. This provides a more unique streaming experience for Mass. Participate fully with sitting, standing, and kneeling and praying the Mass parts aloud as a family. During communion we recommend making a spiritual communion which can be found HERE.

 

Daily Masses: Will be privately celebrated by a priest Monday through Saturday and live streamed @ 9AM CT daily.

 

Confessions: Are only available in the event of an emergency. In the event of an emergency call 281.419.8700 and select option 1.

 

Private Prayer:Due to the Court Order on March 27, 2020 from Judge Mark Keough of Montgomery County, TX the church is CLOSED for private prayer until at least April 12, 2020. We recommend creating a sacred space in your home or backyard for private prayer during this difficult time.

 

Parish Staff: Will work remotely. Please contact them via email with questions.

 

Stations of the Cross: Have been filmed in our sanctuary for use at home on Fridays. Here is the video link.

 

All other events have been cancelled until further notice.
