On Sunday, August 31, 2014, Mrs. Eleanor Maliszewski, long-time parishioner of St. Mary’s Church, passed away at The Otsego Manor, where she has resided for the past few years. Her Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Thursday, September 4, at 11:00am, followed by burial at St. Mary’s Cemetery in Index. A luncheon repast will be held in the Parish Hall immediately thereafter with all invited.
St. Mary’s will once again be enjoying 11am Mass on Lake Otsego at the Pavilion at Glimmerglass State Park followed by the parish picnic. All are welcome! This is a great time for all ages, whether you come alone or with a family! Brian Wrubleski will be cooking another scrumptious meal for us with something for every diet!

The Annual Easter Appeal of St. Mary’s, which supports the Bishop’s Appeal for the Diocese of Albany, needs everyone’s help. We are at our fair assessment of $51,000 but now – having reached our stated goal – what is given returns to help our local Saint Mary’s in charitable works. This includes the Religious Education Program of St. Mary’s, the Youth Program, the Annual Food Drives, etc.. If you have not made a contribution to the Annual Easter Appeal yet – please do so today. You can either mail a check payable to “The Bishop’s Appeal” directly to our church, drop it in the collection basket or donate directly through the Albany Diocese’ website at www.thebishopsappeal.org.
The following is a list of the individuals who were laid to rest from St. Mary’s in the recent past, with the date of their passing following their names. Please remember them in your prayers.
