Please Note all public Masses are suspended until further notice at the direction of the bishop. Mass intentions will be kept, celebrated privately by our priests. At this time we are not able to host weddings and funerals, but we can shedule them for after the coronavirus subsides.

Stay connected with daily and weekly worship! Catholic radio at 88.7FM has Catholic Mass at 8a every day. EWTN cable channel (Spectrum ch 44 and Verizon ch 285 in Auburn) has Mass televised daily at 8a and 12pm. For Mass in Auburn, follow our new YouTube channel.

It's always possible to make a Spiritual Communion if you cannot receive the Holy Eucharist for whatever reason: https://tinyurl.com/tyn8zmp

Do not hesitate to contact us at 315-252-7593 for the Sacrament of Reconciliation or the Sacrament of Anointing of the Sick in situations of legitimate need. Always call a priest in cases of serious illness or danger of death.

If you are healthy and have time, please consider alerting us parish if you wish to help out by volunteering to help those in particular need. We cannot foresee precisely how this would look, but want to have a sense of willing volunteers just in case.

Also, let us know if you are in need of help. Really! We are church, which means we are more than just a club that gathers for an hour on Sunday, we are a family, the family of God. We can't guarantee that we can meet all needs, but we can always pray for you, help connect you with others who can help. God helps us, and we will help where we can. Love will keep us together, and guide us through any trial! Email fr.justin.miller@dor.org

Finally, with all the rapid changes, our parish now has a group text-message service to keep everyone informed in real-time about events, encouragement, etc. If you wanted to be enrolled in this service and receive updates via text-message, contact fr.justin.miller@dor.org and include your full name and cell phone number.

St. Francis and St. Hyacinth, and Sts. Mary and Martha, pray for us!
