Meet and Greet - Wednesday, April 23 

Do you have a family member or friend who is interested in learning about the Catholic faith?


Do you know someone who was baptized Catholic as an infant, but never received any other sacraments, or attended religious education or Mass while growing up?


Are you a visitor, curious about what the Catholic Church teaches? Perhaps thinking about joining the Catholic Church?


We will host a Meet-and-Greet evening to introduce our upcoming Inquiry series. Join us on Wednesday, April 23, at 7pm in Room 118 in the Family Life Center to learn more! If you are unable to attend our Meet & Greet on Wednesday but are interested in joining us for the inquiry series, you are welcome to come to our first session on Sunday, April 27, at 10:15am in Room 109 of the PFLC. For more info, please call Edie Shanahan or the parish office.

Family Fun Night - April 29

Security System-Controlled Access Doors

Beginning Tuesday, April 22 we will more fully use the controlled access doors to the parish family life center.  This means that you will need to go to the left-most door to the parish family life center to be buzzed into the building. Next to the exterior controlled access doors, there is a camera and intercom so that we can monitor who is coming to the door.

All of the PFLC exterior doors will remain locked at all times, except for Sundays or when other large activities/events are going on.    If you have a building key, that key will still work and you will not set off any alarms by using it.

In addition, the interior office door now will remain locked at all hours and you will need to be buzzed into the office.

Eventually, all keys will be virtually eliminated and anyone needing access to the building after-hours will receive a card-key.

Thank you for your understanding and patience during this transition,

Fr. Doug and the parish staff
