Dear Friends in Christ,
Today, March 16, 2020, the Diocese of Rockville Centre announced that ALL Masses (weekday and weekends), liturgies, devotions, meetings, and non-essential activities in all parishes are suspended or postponed through April 14, 2020. This will include Holy Week and Easter liturgies. These will be available to watch online. We hope to have some capability to provide some live streaming of Masses at Immaculate Conception.
These measures are in line with the CDC limiting the number of gathered to less than 50 to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Baptisms will be postponed. Funerals will be as needed and only open to immediate family.
Religious Education classes are cancelled until April 14, 2020. The parish offices will be closed this week and will be opened intermittently until April 14, 2020, when we hope to resume normal operational hours.
The Church will be open every day for private prayer.
Thank you for your patience and understanding. We pray for the health of our community, country and world.
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Michael J. Bartholomew
