Christmas Eve – December 24th 2020 – 4 pm Family Mass in English
Christmas Eve – December 24th 2020 – 10 pm Holy Mass in English
Christmas Day – December 25th 2020 – Midnight Mass 12am in Polish

Christmas Day – December 25th 2020 – 11 am Holy Mass in Polish
Sign up for masses is required!
We would like you to enter the church from the courtyard (by the school) and check in with our usher. As expected masks must be worn all through the mass covering the nose as well. Every other pew is blocked off for further social distancing requirement. Holy communion will be distributed walking the middle aisle then spreading left and right side by the railing 6 feet apart between people, there are markings to refer to.
Holy communion reception on the hand is recommended.
From the Diocese of Rochester:
As you are aware, the U.S. Supreme Court last week issued a temporary injunction barring enforcement of Governor Cuomo’s executive order regarding the head-count capacity restrictions on religious gatherings in areas of high COVID-19 incidence. This relief is granted pending further action by the Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit.
After consultation with the New York State Catholic Conference and our legal counsel, it is the collective opinion that our parishes can have the following capacity restrictions in your local area:
In a “Red Zone”: 25 percent of maximum capacity
In an “Orange Zone”: 33 percent of maximum capacity
In a “Yellow Zone” and “No Zone”: 50 percent of maximum capacity
We can have NORMAL operation of weekend masses since our typical head count does not come close to the limit.
Of course social distancing and masks are a must!
Registration for religious education classes, first reconciliation & communion classes, and confirmation sessions are now due.
Forms are available below – click on the icon – on the bulletin boards, will be mailed or emailed upon request.
