To Members of Our Diocesan Family:
After careful review of the CDC guidelines and the adoption of the guidelines by NYS, Bishop Lucia is announcing changes to our COVID protocols for Mass attendance, sacramental life and diocesan/parish office operations. On our joint parish website you can find a letter from Bishop Lucia to our Diocesan Family. Please be advised that although these are effective immediately, Bishop Lucia recognizes that parishes may not be able to fully implement these changes by this weekend but asks that they be fully implemented by next weekend. We know that this is not a perfect science and you can expect further updates as we move forward. You will also note that he will lift the dispensation from Sunday Mass beginning on the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ on Sunday, June 6th in the Diocese of Syracuse.
