Christmas at Outreach

This year, because of COVID-19, we will be doing Christmas a little differently. We want to make sure that everyone is safe so we are asking for donations of gift cards that will be given to the families we are assisting. The families will be able to use them for gifts for Christmas. Since they will need them earlier in order to have time to use them
before Christmas, we are asking that any donations of gift cards be brought in by December 10.

We are requesting gift cards from Target, Walmart, Amazon, Kohl’s, Macy’s and Old Navy.

Thank you for all the support that you have given to Outreach during this year that has been difficult for many. Your generosity at this time will be a blessing to the families who come to us and will make their celebration of Christmas a bright spot in lives that are many times filled with anxiety and fear.

National Night of Prayer for Life :: December 8 | 8:30pm-10:30pm

It was on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception (then celebrated on December 9) that Our Lady of Guadalupe, patroness of the Americas and the unborn, first appeared to St. Juan Diego. The National Night of Prayer for Life bridges these two feasts to honor Our Blessed Mother and to pray for the sanctity of all human life.

The National Night of Prayer for Life is a pro-life prayer service consisting of exposition and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, 20 decades of the Rosary, prayer to St. Michael, silent prayer and hymns.

Please join us in the Church as we join with other parishes throughout the nation for the Night of Prayer.

Book of the Names of the Deceased

Beginning November 1, and continuing throughout the month of November, a special book will be placed near the Paschal Candle, inscribed with the names of all who have died in our Parish Family over the past year.

In prayer, let us remember all of these men and women who have gone before us, “marked with the sign of faith.” May our united prayers help us to better understand and appreciate our faith in Christ, our risen Lord, who conquers sin and death and brings new life to all!

Confirmation 2020

On Wednesday, November 4, Friday, November 6 and Friday, November 13, the Sacrament of Confirmation was administered by Fr. Brian in our Parish. In the midst of this pandemic, nine classes of grade 9 students were confirmed. They are sent forth now to live out their Catholic faith with even greater enthusiasm and conviction.

In accordance with the Diocese of Rockville Centre guidelines and New York State guidelines regarding COVID safety precautions, we mandated masks be worn by all present and social distancing norms were followed.

Please pray for our Confirmation Candidates as they embrace this very important commitment in their faith journey and that they will continue to be strengthened, loved and supported by YOU … their Parish family.

2021 Mass Intention Book

The Mass Intention Book for 2021 is now open.
