Palm Sunday Family Masses

Sunday, April 14th
9:00 am & 10:45 am - Counts as your PSR or EDGE Session!

On Palm Sunday, St. Peter Chanel will hold two Family-Centered Masses in McNamee Hall at 9:00 am and 10:45 am in addition to the regular Masses in the church. These Masses will begin with a procession of palms. Families are welcome to take part in the procession or simply be seated in the parish hall to wait for Mass to begin. If you are interested in being part of the procession, please meet at the Welcoming Jesus statue 15 minutes before Mass begins. (In the event of rain, we will meet in Classrooms 3 & 4.)
