DRESSING WITH REVERENCE 
While fashions go in and out of style, reverence never does. No matter what the season, a gentle reminder is in order as to appropriate dress for attending Mass. The manner in which we dress when we gather together to celebrate the Lord’s Supper reflects our reverence and our gratitude for the gift that we have in the Holy Eucharist. As a Parish family, let us encourage one another to be witnesses to our faith with reverence and with mutual respect.
