JANUARY 28, 2024

We warmly thank the children from our Religious Education Program for their heartfelt contributions. 

It fills us with humility and joy to see the continued growth in contributions to the Annual Catholic Appeal. We’ve reached an impressive milestone with 202 committed parishioners generously donating a total of $81,787 last year, surpassing our parish goal of $67,815. Excitingly, this means a surplus of $13,972, which will be reinvested in our parish improvements. We extend our deepest thanks for your spirited participation.

We’re thrilled to announce that Catholic Schools Week begins on Monday, January 29th, and continues through Sunday, February 4th. We encourage parents of elementary-aged children to explore St. Joseph Catholic Academy, our parish-affiliated school. For comprehensive details, including its impressive test scores relative to NYC public schools and others in the Diocese, please refer to the bulletin or our website. We’re proud to share that two of our parish’s students will graduate in June, having been accepted into St. John’s Prep, McClancy, and Cathedral Prep, with scholarships and financial aid awards! If you’re interested in enrolling your children at the school, please contact the parish office for more information.

This Friday, February 2nd, marks the First Friday of the month. Following the 8AM Mass, we will have a time of silent adoration with the Blessed Sacrament, continuing until the 12 Noon Mass. In the evening, join us for a sung Holy Hour of Adoration at 6:30 PM, followed by a Holy Mass at 7:30 PM, both conducted in Spanish.

On Saturday, February 3rd, we celebrate the feast of Saint Blaise. We will offer the blessing of the throats after both the 8AM and 5PM English Masses.

This coming Sunday, February 4th, the Rosary Society will hold their monthly meeting at 10AM in the Institute. We warmly invite all ladies over 15 years of age to join. Feel free to bring a friend!
