Weekday Mass Schedule:

Saturday 2:00-3:00 pm or by appointment. Masks are required in the building.
Face masks covering the nose and mouth are mandatory at St Paul’s at all times in the building. This includes all Masses, events, meetings, funerals, and baptisms.
The parish had already implemented a mask requirement effective December 6 and Governor Hochul’s NY State mask mandate, announced December 10, further emphasizes this.
We believe this gives us the opportunity to follow Christ’s command to love one another and sincerely care for our fellow parish family members.
Our parish community and the wider community need our love and support. The number of people in hospitals because of Covid is overwhelming our medical system and putting everyone at risk. The situation is worse this year than at the same point last year. This policy is a reasonable step in doing our part to lessen the spread and impact of the pandemic on the people and families of our parish and the community.
Masks are available at the doors in case you forget to bring one. Social distancing is required by anyone not fully vaccinated, and are optional for those who are. We have seating available for both. The ushers will help if assistance is needed.

12/2/2021 Mask Update
As a Christian community we must protect the most vulnerable among us, including those who are health compromised and also our youngest children, who are not yet able to be vaccinated. Covid cases are on the rise which has led to Monroe County issuing a State of Emergency on Wednesday December 1.
• We strongly recommend and ask that those who are vaccinated wear a mask at all times in the building.
• Masks are required for those who are not vaccinated.
Masks are available at the doors in case you forget to bring one. Thank you for your cooperation.

An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
-St. Alphonsus Liguori

With the recent release of the new COVID guidelines from the CDC, NY State and the Diocese of Rochester, the St. Paul’s staff met via Zoom this morning to discuss what our policy will be moving forward.
After much deliberation the staff has decided that since the guidelines are not clear that St. Paul’s will remain status quo for now and continue practicing social distancing, wearing masks at all times in the building and hand sanitizing. This decision was based upon our main objective of keeping everyone safe without dividing the congregation between vaccinated and non-vaccinated or social-distanced and non-social-distanced.
We will continue to monitor the updates from the CDC and the Diocese of Rochester and will keep you up to date as we make any changes.
Your financial support of St. Paul’s is vitally important and very appreciated!
