COME HOME TO MASS
It is time to return to Sunday Mass;
The obligation to attend Holy Mass on the Lord's Day is a sacred one. For those who are healthy and not at great risk, sick, or caring for others who are at risk or sick, the obligation to attend Sunday Mass now resumes, effective the weekend of June 5-6, 2021.
If questions arise about the obligation to attend you should speak to your pastor. All required safety protocals and liturgical directives of the Diocese of Buffalo remain in place until modified by the Bishop.
Current mask protocol for attending Mass, week days and weekends.
Current changes to mask wearing to attend mass is as follows;
If you are fully vaccinated you may enter the church without a mask. All others should wear a mask. Also continue to follow sanitation guidelines by using sanitizer when entering church and be mindful of your 6ft distance if you are unaware of a person not in your family or circle of friends.
Priest and Eucharistic ministers will wear a mask when dustributing the host. Missalettes and Hymnals are still not in the pews and singing may only be done with a mask on.
Please come home to mass. and join us.
Construction Campaign Pledges
We have reached the halfway point to the 5 year commitment made by so many of our generous parishioners who saw the vision and the future of our parish when they pledged funds for the new build.
We ask all who have pledged to send in your payments. If you need to know your balance or what your monthly, quarterly or annual payment is please contact the parish Business Office at 875-2730 ext 3.
REMEMBER YOUR COMMITMENT AND PLEDGE IS WHAT MADE THIS POSSIBLE. PLEASE HONOR YOUR PLEDGE , WE NEED IT TO PAY FOR THIS.
As you pass by our church you may have noticed that the much needed repair of the broken stain glass window on Delaware and Victoria has started. This is a very time and labor intense procedure and is expected to be under way on site for at least 2-3 weeks. After the windows that can be removed are done so, they will be shipped to the main warehouse of Willet Hauser and repaired. The expected date of return for reinstalling is late spring.
We did not expect to have to start as fast as we have so we are still collecting funds for the project. If you can see your way to making a donation, no matter the size, it would be greatly appreciated. These are the original windows to the church and we will be celebrating our 125th anniversary in 2022. Plans are starting to get underway for a 125th celebration so look for more information on this happy celebration.
