On Sunday, December 18, Bishop Robert Brennan will come to preside at our 10:30AM Czech Mass in the lower church. The Mass will be in English. All are invited to attend to extend a warm welcome to our Bishop, the chief Shepherd of our Diocese.
MONDAY, December 19, is Reconciliation Monday throughout the City of New York and Long Island. All Catholic churches will be open for the faithful to celebrate the Sacrament of Reconciliation. Confessions will be heard in our lower church from 11AM to 1PM and again from 6PM to 8PM. Come to experience God’s forgiving love and healing.
We are happy to announce that a beloved holiday tradition will return to our parish this year, namely, the Christmas Eve Concert. Next Saturday, December 24th, at 9:30PM in the upper church, there will be a live performance of sacred music in a variety of styles, from the 15th to the 21st century in several languages. Featuring the English Choir, the Mount Carmel String Trio and Choir Percussionists, this beautiful rendition is sure to put everyone in the true spirit of the season. Please note that the Concert will begin at 9:30PM, followed by Christmas Eve Mass at 10:00PM.
Our envelope company has mistakenly sent out the January 1st donation envelope twice – with the last set of envelopes for this year, and the first set for next year. Please use only ONE envelope for your contribution on January 1st and discard the other.
On Monday, December 26, in observance of the Christmas holiday, there will be only one Mass at 9AM in the upper church. The parish office will be closed and will reopen on Tuesday, December 27.
