Our Pastoral Council has begun work on updating the Parish Plan and Goals. The Council is very much interested in knowing what our parishioners believe to be important as this work commences.  Pastoral Council members will be wearing name badges that identify them when they attend Mass each weekend.  Please feel free to approach any Council member and share your thoughts with them.

Weather Alerts

View the Dare County Weather Policy Updates Here

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.


Faith Formation classes for 2019-20 will begin on September 29 for Grades 1-8 and Good Shepherd (ages 4-5) ; and October 6 for Grades 9-10.
