Anniversary of our Salesian Saints

The weekend of January 22nd and 23rd, Salesian Congregations and organizations around the world began a year-long Double Jubilee Anniversary observance of the 400th Anniversary of the death of St. Francis DeSales and the 450th Anniversary of the birth of St. Jane DeChantal. The life and teachings of these two Saints are the foundation of the ministry of the Oblates of St. Francis DeSales who staff this parish. Throughout this coming year, we will highlight important events and dates in the lives of St. Francis and St. Jane to mark the Jubilee and to help us grow in our understanding and appreciation of these two Saints. We marked the birthday of St. Jane DeChantal on January 23, 1572 and the feast day of St. Francis DeSales on January 24th, the day that marks his burial in Annecy, France in 1622.

May our celebration of these two Saints help us to live in the present moment where God’s grace is always found.

Dare County Weather Policy’s

The Church will be closed and all activities canceled if a LOCAL State of Emergency is declared by Dare County or the Town of Kitty Hawk that includes mandatory evacuations or restrictions or prohibitions on travel in Kitty Hawk. Never put yourself at risk of accident or physical harm to come to Church in dangerous conditions, even if a delay or emergency has not been announced. We have been assured by the Diocese of Raleigh that the Catholic faithful are not obligated to attend Mass when prevented by unsafe travel conditions.

Since our new inclement weather policy governing closures and cancellations will now be tied to County and Municipality States of Emergency, we urge all parishioners to sign up for County Alerts.
