Serving the Community Since 1987

The Pantry will distribute food from the Rectory Basement:
1:15 p.m. – 2:30 p.m.*
on Saturdays, August 13 & 27 and September 10.

Thank you to Rosanne Leacy for her very generous donation of food items!

We have been receiving a significantly higher number of people in need. As a result, maintaining sufficient inventory is proving to be difficult. Please keep non-perishable items such as rice, pasta sauce, beans, and cereal on your shopping list for us, if you can.

Sacraments for the Homebound or Ill

Fr. Larry is available to administer the Sacraments of Penance, Eucharist, and the Anointing of the Sick either at home or in a hospital. All three of these Sacraments are grace and salvation-filled opportunities for spiritual (and sometimes physical) healing, nourishment, and peace. Please note that it is preferable to have a priest visit before there are issues with communication and swallowing, but please don’t hesitate to contact the Rectory at any time to have Fr. Larry (or another priest) administer these important sacraments to those in need.

Arrangements can also be made to bring the Eucharist (Holy Communion) to the homebound on a recurring basis. All visits should be by advance appointment (made by calling the Rectory) to avoid concerns about strangers coming to the door.

National Eucharistic Revival

Our Bishop Robert Brennan has asked pastors to advise everyone that the three-year National Eucharistic Revival officially began on Corpus Christi Sunday, June 19, 2022. Bishop Brennan also asked that everyone be directed to watch his brief message to the faithful of Brooklyn and Queens about the Revival. Please view the Bishop’s message as soon as you can.

Your attention is also directed to the eucharisticrevival.org web site which has been set up as a central source of information about the Revival, and to an excellent news release on the subject recently issued by the Archdiocese of Chicago. As that news release explains: The National Eucharistic Revival officially begins on Corpus Christi Sunday, June 19. The Revival is a three-year initiative sponsored by the USCCB to form, heal, convert, and unite the People of God through a renewed encounter with Jesus in the Eucharist and then to send them out to a hurting and hungry world. The Revival’s focus on formation and missionary discipleship begins at the grassroots level in individual parishes and dioceses along with other Catholic institutions…

The Frequently Asked Questions section of the eucharisticrevival.org website reminds us of the Church’s current challenges.…The website goes on to boldly assert that “The goal of the National Eucharistic Revival is to engage every Catholic in the United States! This is a movement, not a program, and is meant to provide opportunities for the faithful to fall deeper in love with Jesus in the Eucharist and to be inspired and equipped to share that love with others.” Please pray for the success of the Eucharistic Revival.

The link that you see on the left side of our Parish Home Page will be updated as future announcements are made and additional information becomes known.
