Dear Parishioners,

   In anticipation of the blizzard we tried to accomplish many things as early as possible this past week, including preparing the bulletin.  Writing these words on Monday, I can only presume the snow storm will be powerful.  May God keep everyone safe.

   Please remember that if it is not safe to venture out, you should stay home.  If there is a state of emergency in New York State or just Rockland County, Masses will be canceled.  We have to think of everyone’s safety.  If someone gets stuck in the snow to come to Mass and emergency crews have to be called for help, we put everyone at risk.

  Once again, we are reminded how many things are a bit beyond our control.  Winter weather can and does disrupt travel and attendance at Masses.  Likewise our collections go down and snow removal costs go up.  The situation is certainly not ideal but it is a part of life in the Northeastern United States.

  Even if we cannot get to church due to inclement weather, we should make time for prayer wherever we are.  Reading scripture, praying the rosary and perhaps following Mass on television are good ways to pray if it is not possible to venture out.

   Also, we all have to do our best to look after one another.  Our priests and parish staff will do everything we can to serve our people and safety is a top priority.

  Please keep up your support for the parish and by all means come to Church when conditions allow.  We cannot easily excuse ourselves from Mass attendance, but Blizzards pretty much make it impossible to even leave the house.  If we can catch up with missed collections, that would help tremendously.

  Know of our prayers for the health and safety of all our parishioners and loved ones.  Perhaps we can even say a little pray for good weather.

    God Bless.

                        Sincerely in Christ,    

                        Monsignor Joseph R. Giandurco
