Fr. Jose Kandathikudy will be the main celebrant for the Feast of St. Alphonsa. Jose Achan is retiring from active service from the diocese/ St. Thomas Church, Bronx. Achan will be moving to Virginia. We are blessed and happy to have Jose Achan celebrate this Holy Mass with us.
According to the protocol we are allowed to have only 25% of our occupancy (110 people) in the church. In order to make the seating arrangements we would like to get a headcount of the members attending the Feast. Please let us know whether you will be attending the Feast of St. Alphonsa through your ward leaders. Further details will be given through ward group messages. Please respond to the messages.

We will continue our daily Mass schedule as usual.
