UPDATES AND NEWS
SUNDAY MASS SCHEDULE
Please know that this Sunday, August 16, we will be offering the 8, 10, and 12 Masses in the church. We will also stream the 10 Mass.
We will continue to stream Masses for the duration of the summer. Come September, however, we will need to make a change. Taking into account Father Bob's reassignment, it will not be possible to celebrate two Masses daily. Therefore, we are looking into what it will entail to stream Mass from the church. Engineers are currently proposing some options for us by way of schematics and quotes.
MEETINGS (*updated Aug 14)
We hope soon to be able to resume the regular meetings of our organizations and associations. As of now, we are looking to some time in the Fall.
We're in regular communication with CYO. When it is possible for them to resume their usage of the gym, we will be welcoming that community back. As of now, COVID precautions are still in place.
FAREWELL, FATHER BOB
We are planning a farewell for Father Bob on Saturday, August 22nd at 6:30PM in the parking lots adjacent to the Parish Office. In light of Covid, we are asking people to bring their own basket of food and chair/blanket. We will have a food truck (Chiddy’s… and possibly one more) on hand for those who would rather buy something (you know, Fr. Bob will love that!). We will provide drinks and ice cream!
BUSINESS AND FINANCES
Back in March and April, our offerings were keeping pace with the preceding months thanks to the generosity that accompanied our initial response to the COVID Virus. However, we are now beginning to see a decline in regular financial stewardship. Please consider how you might help, either by using our online giving platform [RebelGive] or by mailing your Sunday envelopes to the parish office.
As you may know, the work in the church was done by the company belonging to parishioners, John and Julie Elarde. They themselves have been extremely generous with the parish over the years. Even so, they completed the work of the beautification at a very reasonable cost to the parish, and are giving us a generous amount of time to pay.
We would like to thank Joe and Theresa Cocchiola, of Bellport Marble International, who donated the large top piece of marble for the altar, as well as the other large slabs for the stature of Our Lady, Saint Therese, the sanctuary angels, and the new reception stand in the vestibule. What a gift!
Lord Jesus Christ, King of our hearts,
have mercy on us!
