There are PRIVATE extension numbers for the pastor and staff members. When you are greeted by the Voice Mail System, a directory of extension numbers for the pastor and parish staff members will be given to you. If you know your party's extension, you may simply press the extension number of the person you want to speak with immediately, or listen to the option of extensions and choose the one you need. Listed on the greeting from the Voice Mail System is the weekend Mass schedule. If there are any parish functions, they also will be listed on this extension.
