October is the Month of the Rosary

      By tradition, the Catholic Church dedicates each month of the year to a certain devotion. The month of October is dedicated to the Holy Rosary, one of the best known of all Catholic devotions.  

     October includes the

Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, October 7th.  

The best way to celebrate the month is, of course, to pray the Rosary, but these additional prayers can be incorporated into our daily prayers during this month, too.

     In order to increase awareness of, and encourage this devotion, we will begin the recitation of the Rosary after the homily at every weekend mass in October, encouraging each of you to finish the rosary later in the day.

COVID-19 Update: February 11, 2022

MASKS NOT REQUIRED

at all masses & indoor events until further notice.

Dear Parishioner,

As you may be aware, the Governor of New York has ended the mask mandate for all indoor gatherings. This took effect on February 10, 2022.

In keeping with this expiration of the mask mandate in New York State, the Diocese of Albany will no longer mandate that masks be worn in diocesan churches and offices,

effective February 10, 2022.  

However, the diocese encourages Extraordinary ministers of Holy Communion to continue to wear a mask during the distribution of Communion.

On that note too, any parishioner who feels like wearing a mask is encouraged to do so, either because of compromised immune system or any other medical condition.

We will continue to bring up the gifts at Mass after the collection. This will include just the ciborium, the book of prayer intentions, and the collection basket.

May God bless you all for your patience and understanding during this challenging times.

Blessings!

Fr. Simon
