*A Note about our healing ministry
It may seem odd to cancel our regular services that have the laying of hands, anointing of the sick, and prayer ministry. However, in response to CDC and the State medical authorities advice on social distancing, priests will be offering the sacramental rite of healing to those they visit who are sick or dying. Please note that all visitors, including families, are prohibited from visiting nursing homes and Assisted Facilities for Seniors except in grave circumstances. Please contact the clergy if you are sick or hospitalized.
