NOTE: In accordance with the indoor mas mandate from New York State, participants for all Masses are required to wear a mask. This policy will be reviewed on or around January 15th.

Dear Families,

 I hope you are all well. These times have been very trying for all of us and we need our faith to get us through. Even though we have not been able to gather together for Mass in the Church for several months we still can live our faith.

 If you have not yet heard, we are now able to attend religious services but with 35% church capacity. Therefore, I would like to announce to you that we will be resuming weekend Masses on Saturday, June 20th and Sunday June 21st. We have already begun weekday Masses in the church at 9am Mondays through Saturdays and 6:45 on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

 The schedule for the weekends is Confessions at 4pm in room 1 of the parish hall. There is a screen in there for those who chose not to go face to face. Mass on Saturday will be at 5pm. Sunday Masses will be celebrated at 8am, 10am and Noon. We are adding an additional Mass at 7pm on Sundays as well to help us with decreased capacity in the church. I will also stream a Mass every Sunday at 2pm for those of you who do not yet feel comfortable attending Mass in person.

There are regulations we will have to abide by as we still continue to deal with the epidemic:

 I hope the requirement to follow these rules will end relatively soon. Providing a prayerful environment is important to celebrate Mass. Things are going to be strange for a while but hopefully not for too long.

 The Sunday requirement to go to Mass every week is still dispensed with. Keep in mind that you are not required to come. Even if you decide not to come to Mass immediately please consider continuing to support the parish financially. Bills and payroll still need to be taken care of.

Christ's Peace,
 Fr. Jim Kirkpatrick
