Those who attend the Mass are invited to honor a loved one affected by cancer or another serious illness by setting a candle by the altar; writing a prayer petition on a 3” x 5” card, which can be placed in a basket at the back of the church before the Mass; or submitting a photo to be displayed during Mass. Photos must be dropped off at the parish office by Friday, Feb. 3.
