Welcome

HOPE APPEAL 2021

Bishop Lucia has decided to permanently move the HOPE Appeal Campaign to the Fall instead of the Spring. Hope Appeal Commitment Weekend will be September 11th and 12th and            conclude December 31, 2021. 

This year’s theme is taken from Matthew 5:13: “You are the salt of the earth…” 

“God gave each person faith, gifts and talents so that they would share them with others and bring the taste of the Gospel to the world. Christians must ‘go out with the message, go out with the riches of salt that we have received and give it to others.”   - Pope Francis

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE "CELEBRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS

IN TIME OF THE PANDEMIC"

                            Listed below are some of the changes for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.        For a total list of the new guidelines please go to https://www.syracusediocese.org/assets/Uploads/Updates-Celebration-of-the-Sacraments-in-Time-of-Pandemic-5.21.21.pdf

· Parishes are no longer required to pre-register for Mass

· Parishioners who are fully vaccinated are not required to wear a face mask at Mass

· Those who are not fully vaccinated should observe social distancing of six feet from individuals not in their household. They are to wear a face mask at Mass

· It is no longer necessary to block off every other row of pews

· The Offertory procession with the gifts of  bread and wine may resume. Offertory collections with baskets may resume by ushers

· The distribution of Holy Communion using hand sanitizer, masks, distancing, etc. is to continue

Thank you for your patience and understanding.**

 

Sunday Mass Attendance

As you may know, the dispensation from the obligation to attend Sunday and Holy Day Masses was  lifted on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, Sunday, June 6. It should be noted as well that anyone who is frail or at risk due to advanced age or medical conditions is always excused from this obligation. Caregivers, too, may have to use prudential judgment about attendance at Mass, carefully considering the risk factors involved.      For most of us, the  pandemic restrictions have eased, and we look forward to seeing most of our parishioners at Sunday Mass.  Please pass the word to your families and friends and encourage them to return to mass. We need each other’s presence and look forward to the day when our parish communities will be fully restored.
