Mission Statement

We are an open Church in the Roman Catholic tradition: Opening our hearts in worship, opening our minds for discipleship, opening our eyes, ears, and hands in service and fellowship, and reaching out to all.

Fulfilling the Great

"...Go, make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, and teach them to carry out everything I have commanded you...."

By living the Great Commandment:

"...Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself...."


Our Monthly Adoration will take place on May 6th. Adoration begins after the 9:00 am Mass at 9:30

Parish Events

Ascension Thursday

Ascension Thursday, May 5th is a Holy Day of Obligation. Mass will be celebrated Wed. May 4th, 7:30pm & Thursday, May 5th, 9:00am & 7:30pm

Crowning of Mary
Next Sunday, May 8th we will crown the statue of Mary in church at the beginning of the 9 am and 10:30 am Masses. All children are invited to participate. If you would like to do so please bring a flower to be presented to Our Lady. Flowers will also be available in church for those who don't have one. This is a wonderful way for us to honor our Blessed Mother and teach our children the important part that she can play in our lives.

Liturgical Ministers Needed
We are in need of additional Liturgical Ministers for all of our Masses (Eucharistic Ministers, Lectors, Greeters and Altar Servers). If you are interested in serving in one or more of these capacities please call the office 845-227-8382 and leave your name and phone number. If you would like more information on any of them please speak to any of our priests or deacons. Please note: New Altar Servers need to currently be in 3rd grade or older.
