Update: 12/16/ 2:00 pm

May God help us with this fire! It looks like the Mandatory Evacuation will be in effect this Sunday, so the church will be closed. Fr. Love, Pastor of St Mark's Catholic Church, is kind enough to open up his doors to let us have a special Mass this Sunday, December 17th, at 5 p.m. for Mount Carmel. All parishioners are welcome to come for the celebration of our community and to join in prayer for the safety of our homes, school, church, and first responders. After Mass we will have refreshments.

Please spread the word to other parishioners who are in town and we hope you can join us.
