My dear Sisters and Brothers,
A wonderful thing is now available to all parishioners in the archdiocese! The Archdiocese of New York is subsidizing for one year a subscription to the on-line site: FORMED. Everyone in the parish can now access the web site: formed.org, by using the Parish Access Code: H36R3F. Take note that you must use capital letters in order to sign in properly.
Go to FORMED.ORG, use the access code, and you will be asked to register an account with your name, address and email address. The site will then lead you to faith formation programs, Bible studies, Catholic-themed movies, e-books, conferences and much more, all of it free.
I hope that you will make use of this site and open yourself to the some of the best traditional explanations of our Catholic Faith.
Our Church Mass Book for the year 2017 is now open for anyone who would like to schedule an announced Mass next year. We have Masses available for Saturday evenings and Sunday mornings. The usual donation is $10.00 per name, paid at the time of scheduling. Thank you!
