As you are aware, Governor Hochul has mandated that masks be worn in all but private residences.  The Archdiocese of New York notified us that out of care and concern for all, this will also be the policy for all of our churches, halls, and schools.
So, at least until mid-January, everyone older than 2 years, will be required to wear masks anyplace in our facility.
Coincidentally, the first Sunday that this took effect, we lit the Advent Candle of Love. Please let us continue to take advantage of this coincidence and wear the masks in the spirit of love for one another.
