We will be practicing social distancing and follow dioesean, CDC, local and state recommendations.  If you feel comfortable joining us, please wear a mask.

Please join us for live-streaming Masses Monday through Friday and Sunday by visiting our Facebook Page. (You do not need to have a facebook account to view our page.)

Bishop Weisenburger continues the temporary dispensation for the Sunday Mass obligation for all those who reside in or are visiting the Diocese of Tucson.

There are no public meetings on our campus at this time.


We hope the information here is useful to you. The website will be continually updated and improved so your comments are always welcome.

We are a family oriented, community of Christians involved in all parts of our catholic ministry striving to live according to the word of God through prayer and by loving and respecting our neighbors in an atmosphere of joyful living.

We do this by celebrating liturgy, caring for the poor, offering religious education, providing opportunities for parishioners to participate in all church activities, responding with God’s love to all those in need and welcoming all who seek to worship God and live our faith with us.
