Welcome! Here are the Basics:

Our parking lot has an Entrance Only and Exit Only flow of traffic off of Route 84 or Old Johnnycake Ridge Road. The Entrance Only is on the east side of the church between the school and church near the electronic sign. The Exit Only is on the west side of the church between the Learning Loft/Food Pantry buildings and church.
When you enter the church's main doors, through the gathering area, there are restrooms in the back on the left. If you enter the church's office or parish life doors, there is a single restroom in the hallway. There are also restrooms in the downstairs of the church in the Community Room.
Children's Liturgy of the Word is on pause until local health guidelines allow it to resume. Children stay with parents at this time. Children's Liturgy of the Word takes place at all Mass times. It is optional, and children love it!
The Presider will call the children to the Altar and they are sent forth with a trained catechist to the Annunciation Chapel (you can see the chapel on the right as you enter church main doors). They listen to God's Word in the First Reading and the Gospel. They reflect in silence, sing the responses, share the homily in their own words, proclaim what they believe, express their own prayers and share their treasure. Children are given Children's Worship Bulletins to take home and complete. Parents may attend with them if they are nervous the first few times attending. It is good for children in preschool to ages 8 or so. All catechists are VIRTUS certified and trained. We have many youth faith formation opportunities for all ages, there is something for everyone!
