The Governor of New York State has included houses of worship in her recent directives.  Therefore, since the Church does not require parishioners to present proof of vaccination in order to worship God, we ask that all parishioners (two years of age and older) comply with the requirement to wear masks when participating in any activities on parish grounds until further notice.  

We will continue to adapt accordingly as new information becomes available.  Your patience and Christian charity toward one another during this difficult time is appreciated.

Introducing the Ignatian Year
(May 20, 2021 – July 31, 2022)

The Ignatian Year begins May 20, 2021!  This year marks the 500-year anniversary of Ignatius’ wounding and spiritual conversion in Pamplona, Spain.  The year will conclude on July 21, 2022, the anniversary of St. Ignatius passing into eternal life.

As part of the exploration of the life and legacy of St. Ignatius during this year Father Michael Bissex in the attached pastoral reflection, explores St. Ignatius’ conversion following the Battle of Pamplona.
