It is wonderful news that 70% of New York adults have received at least one dose of the COVID-19 vaccine. While this does not signal the end of the pandemic or the vigilance, care, and pastoral concern that we must continue to show for one another as a Church, it does indicate that we are making significant progress as a community in mitigating this public health crisis and its effects.

Based on prevailing guidance from health officials or an individual’s doctor or other medical professional, masks are now optional, but may continue to be worn at the discretion of the individual.

Ministers of the Eucharist are encouraged to continue to wear masks when distributing Communion for the protection of the vulnerable and those who may not be able to be vaccinated.

As of June 6, 2021, the dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass has been lifted and all practicing Catholics should be invited to resume regular, in-person worship.

Fr. Dan will be resuming Confessions on Saturdays from 4-4:30PM in Corfu as well as Wednesday evenings during Adoration in Corfu and First Fridays during Adoration in East Pembroke.

Father Dan will continue to Live Stream the Mass on his YouTube Channel.  Fr. Dan Serbicki – https://www.youtube.com/c/FrDanSerbicki

Based on current guidance from New York State (June 9, 2021), baptismal fonts and holy water stoups should remain empty.
