We want to extend a GREAT BIG THANK YOU to Helen Kelley, Judi Marini and Joanne Bibik. These women devoted over 300 hours of their time, donated all the necessary supplies to strip, repair, sand, prime and meticulously paint the Nativity Pieces at the Woodstown Parish Center. They also made padded storage bags so that each piece can be stored safely. Helen, Judi and Joanne are truly talented and we so appreciate their efforts and attention to detail. The results are amazing!

Beginning on June 5th:
Dispensation from attending Mass on Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation has been lifted for all, excluding those ill or homebound. We are excited about celebrating Masses and worshiping all together once again.
Beginning on May 28th :
*Vaccinated parishioners are no longer required to wear masks at Mass or Parish Events. Mask-wearing continues to offer a layer of protection against the virus and some may continue to choose this option without judgement.
*The Sign of Peace can be offered again with a handshake, but please recognize that some may still not be comfortable and a wave will suffice.
*Although seating has returned to normal, Capacity limits have been lifted and Social distancing measures are no longer required, we do ask that you be mindful that those around you may be more comfortable continuing to keep a 6ft. distance. If possible, we ask that you try to continue this practice. If you feel that you would like to move to better distance yourself from others, please do so at this time.
