Fr. Tom Quinlivan (pastor), in conjunction with parish leadership, has decided to cancel Masses and programs this weekend, including the Adoration Chapel.


The Adoration Chapel will open Monday, November 24th at 8am.


Please be assured of our thoughts and prayers.

Bishop Malone's statement follows:


"It will be up to the local pastor to decide whether or not to celebrate weekend Masses in those parishes," Bishop Malone said. "It is my advice that parishioners living in snowbound areas use their best judgment when it comes to attending Mass. Their safety and well-being is a priority, and they need to comply with local travel advisories.

We pray for those who lost their lives during the storm, and offer our gratitude to highway crews, first responders and neighbors helping neighbors, whose tireless efforts have demonstrated the resilient spirit of Western New Yorkers," Bishop Malone said. "Through Catholic Charities, Catholic Health and other Catholic institutions, the Catholic Church will continue to play an important role in serving those in need as recovery efforts continue."
