Attention: PC (laptop or desktop) users
Microsoft is retiring Microsoft Internet Explorer on June 15, 2022. At that time, Internet Explorer 11 will go out of support, which will make its continued use a risk to your security. Approximately 30 days from now, Microsoft is implementing a change that will launch Microsoft Edge instead of Internet Explorer. A dialog window will explain the transition if you attempt to use Internet Explorer. Your data will be imported to Microsoft Edge from IE11 to create continuity across browsers.

Another reminder: If you are still using Windows 7, you should upgrade or replace your computer as soon as possible. Continued use of Windows 7 puts your data and your parishioner privacy at risk. Windows 7 has been retired since Jan. 14, 2020.
