As of November 18, 2020 New York, Governor Andrew Cuomo provided an update on the COVID-19 pandemic in Western New York. Due to high levels of positive cases in the Western New York area, he has decided to move Buffalo and the surrounding areas in Erie County to a Code Orange Zone.
Erie County Executive Mark Poloncarz says the new restrictions go into effect Friday for non-essential businesses and Monday for schools.
In a Code Orange Zone, we are limited to 33% capacity or a 25-person minimum for in person Mass and Prayer schedules. Our Mass and prayer schedule is as follows:
WEEKEND MASS – LIVE STREAM ONLY
- Saturday 4:30pm vigil
- Sunday 7am, 9am and 11am
WEEKDAY MASS – LIVE STREAM & IN PERSON
- Monday, Wednesday, Friday 8am and 10:30am
- Tuesday & Thursday 6:30am and 10:30am
- Saturday 8am
- Novena, Eucharistic Adoration & Benediction Mondays 6:00 – 7:30pm
- Rosary Monday – Friday following the 8am Mass
At this time, during our Code Orange Zone, we will offer confessions Monday evenings as the Novena, Eucharistic Adoration and Benediction will include confessions from 6:00 – 7:00pm. We will also offer confessions on Wednesday afternoon from 4:00 – 5:00pm. There will not be confessions on Saturdays.
While attending Mass and Prayer session in person, you must wear a mask or face covering, bring your own hand sanitizer for personal use and remain socially distant from others. This is for the safety of all of us as we follow the CDC guidelines and guidelines provided by the Diocese.
We ask for everyone to please be patient with our volunteers as we all do our absolute best to adapt and keep everyone safe.
Remember why we all come to church, and the rest will all fall into place!
