  • URGENT INFORMATION DURING THE CORONA VIRUS EMERGENCY:

    I have some important updates and information to give you about the pandemic, specifically as to how it affects us here at St. Ann's. I apologize in advance if this note is lengthy, but there is much important news to share.

    First of all, while Cardinal Dolan had already made the decision to cancel Holy Week services this year, Pope Francis himself canceled all public celebrations worldwide through Easter Sunday. We received the word just this afternoon. We are allowed to celebrate the masses in private, so Fr. James and I will do that, and I am hoping to be able to live stream the services of Holy Week so that you can at least watch live from your home. The celebrations must be abbreviated, so they will only have a portion of the normal activities. Certain things such as the washing of the feet on Holy Thursday, the Transfer of the Eucharist, and the lighting of the pascal fire and candle procession at the Easter Vigil will be omitted this year. Most importantly, the celebration of the Easter sacraments needs to be held off until we are again allowed to gather in public.

    Regarding Palm Sunday, we will still receive our shipment of palms, which we will bless and leave available in the chapel for you to come and take. The chapel will be open for prayer every day from 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM, including Sunday.

    I will still order some Easter flowers to put in the chapel, so that, even though we cannot publicly celebrate Mass, when you come to pray privately at Eastertime you will still have the experience of the smell of Easter flowers in bloom.

    Reconciliation Monday will be postponed for this year, and we must also cancel formal confession times. We are still available for individual confessions if anyone needs it, but they will have to be done by appointment.

    First Holy Communion and Confirmation are postponed until further notice.

    The celebration of weddings and funerals will be determined by the level of permission given to us by New York State or by the Federal Government at the corresponding time. As of 5:00 PM today, all non-essential gatherings of any people in New York State are banned until further notice, so for now they cannot be held.

    The bulletin will still be available on our parish website, and please also check the website frequently, as I will post updates there was much as possible. The address is www.stannsyonkers.org. 

    I have placed a button on our website of Bishop Robert Barron offering daily Mass. It is available beginning at 8:15 AM each day.

    Finally, while our first concern is of course the health and safety of all our parishioners, the bills still have to be paid. I know that the pandemic will present financial difficulties to many people, but whatever you can do to help keep us afloat financially will be greatly appreciated. I am grateful to the many parishioners who have mailed or dropped off their envelopes, and to those who have since signed up for automated giving. If you would be willing to do that, just go to our website and click the Parish Giving button. Also, please remember the Cardinal's Appeal (we're at 61%) and your Renew & Rebuild pledges. (I have big plans to share with you about that once the crisis is over.) 

    Let's all pray fervently to Our Heavenly Father and Our Blessed Lady to cure our world of this terrible virus, to comfort and heal those afflicted by it, and to receive the souls of those who have died into the loving embrace of Jesus.
