ONLINE PARISH DIRECTORY: We are pleased to announce the creation of a new online parish directory! No need to schedule a photo session. You will submit your own picture and the information you choose to share. The information is secure, with each family having an individual login and password.

You also have the option to print out your own hard copy from your home printer if you prefer.
To be included in the directory, please register online through this website. From the drop down menu above, select Forms/Schedules and click on Online Directory Data Form. Ron Lay and Barb DiBrito are coordinating the directory. Please contact them with any questions or if you are in need of assistance in submitting your information or photograph.
