Here is the new mass schedule:
Saturday Vigil Mass:
4:00 p.m. at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel
5:15 p.m at St. Joan of Arc
10:00 a.m. at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel
11:15 a.m. at St. Joan of Arc
Daily mass is on Monday, Wednesday & Friday 9 a.m. in the church hall at St. Joan of Arc and Tuesday & Thursday 8 a.m. in the main church at Our Lady of Mt. Carmel. This is just a temporary schedule and is subject to change. Once these restrictions are removed we will resume our old schedule of masses.
I ask that you review the following guidelines:
- For now there is no requirement for you to come back to Mass once churches are open. Those who are at a greater risk of COVID-19 (those older than 65 or who have underlying health conditions) are cautioned not to come to church for Mass. They may join us only when they feel safe and comfortable to do so. His Eminence has dispensed us from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass at this time. As an alternative, Mass may be viewed on line or on TV, and the act of spiritual communion may be used instead of receiving the Eucharist.
- We will only be using the main entrance in each church. You will be seated by the usher in attendance.
- In accord with current state policy, the faithful (over 2 years old) must wear a mask.
- Attendees should sanitize their hands at the entrance of the church via sanitizer stations.
- All present at Mass should sit 6 feet or more away from others. Families may sit together.
- Please do not sit in the pews that have been roped off. Maintain 6ft. from the person beside you unless a family member.
- When receiving communion please keep your mask on, extend your hands to receive then step to the side and lift your mask to place the Body of Christ in your mouth. You may not receive communion if you are wearing gloves and communion will not be distributed on the tongue.
- Anyone wishing me to hear their confession prior to mass needs to call me at 914-439-5089 to schedule.
Thank you for your cooperation!
May God Bless you all!
Yours in Christ,
Rev. Joseph A. Emmanuel
