St. Mary of the Desert is attended by a Deacon of the Catholic Church and is an outreach of Our Lady of Fatima. As we do not have an assigned priest so we observe the rite of distributing Holy Communion outside Mass with the celebration of the Word of God. This is not a mass but a communion service.
Vigil Communion services* are held every Saturday at 5:30 p.m.
From time-to-time a guest priest will celebrate mass for our community. Please check the web site weekly as we will post the ocassions of the mass when a priest is available.
5:00-5:30 pm on Saturday, Vigil Communion services are preceded with the chapelet of the Divine Mercy and adoration of the blessed sacrement.
*Note: A vigil service is an anticpated service for Sunday.
