2022 Mass Intention Book

The Mass Intention Book for 2022 will be opened on MONDAY, October 18 at 9:00am in the PARISH CENTER. Please be sure to wear a mask regardless of your vaccination status.

As we have done for the past few years, we will not be accepting individual Mass intentions for Easter, Christmas, Mother’s Day or Father’s Day. Those days will be part of a novena of Masses for which you will receive an envelope in the parish mailing.

All Souls Day Remembrance Candle

Once again, in memory of your deceased family and friends, we are offering a Loving Memory Candle which will be placed in the Tabernacle area and lit on Monday, November 1. This symbolic light will remain for the life of the candle (approximately a week). This is a beautiful way to remember our deceased loved ones.

The Loving Memory Candles will be available after all the Masses the weekends of October 24 and October 31 and also at the Parish Office (Rectory) during the week for a donation of $10.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at 631.661.3224, ext. 121.
