Whatever you normally do! When you visit, you'll see jeans, polo shirts, dresses, and slacks. Wear whatever you feel comfortable in as long as it is appropriate and neat. To the right is a guide to help you.
Welcome! Upon arrival our team of volunteers strive to make you feel welcome and provide as much help as possible. When you walk in, pick a seat that's comfortable for you. If it's crowded and you're having trouble or if the service has started, an usher can help you find a seat. If you have any questions about the church, feel free to ask our greeters at the door.

The Mass is split into four main parts:
After Mass The Meet & Greet with our Clergy
