It rarely rains in El Dorado Hills in October. Nonetheless, we’ve set a rain date of Sunday, November 1 at 1:30 p.m.


To aid our compliance with the Diocesan Directives for the Celebration of Outdoor Masses (in the times of COVID-19), it is important that all Confirmation candidate families use the following SignUp link.
