5;30pm Mass – RECTORY CHAPEL
Our Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday Masses will be celebrated in the newly established chapel located in the basement of the Church Rectory. The inaugural Mass will be on Tuesday, December 2, at 5:30pm. PLEASE JOIN US. We are hoping to have Bishop Scharfenberger bless our humble and intimate chapel on Friday, December 5, when he is in Cooperstown for the Confirmation Mass. This chapel will provide us with much-needed decreases in fuel costs by allowing us to heat a small space versus the entire large church on weekdays. Weekend Masses and funerals will continue to be held within the church.
Bishop Edward Scharfenberger will be with us at St. Mary’s Church on Friday, December 5, 2014, for our parish’s Confirmation Mass at 6:00pm. All are urged to mark this on your calendars and plan to attend, so that we can extend a very warm parish welcome to Bishop Scharfenberger as well as to celebrate the confirmation of 20 young soldiers of Christ.
SO MANY PHOTOS TO BE SEEN, such as the photos of our MAGNIFICENT windows at St. Mary’s Once there, click onto an individual gallery title to open the photos to a full size. You can navigate within each gallery by continuing to click on the photos. ENJOY YOUR/OUR PARISH! If you missed the picnic this year, be sure to mark your calendar for 2015 … first Sunday after Labor Day!
The Annual Easter Appeal of St. Mary’s, which supports the Bishop’s Appeal for the Diocese of Albany, needs everyone’s help.
