Funerals will go on as scheduled but are limited to immediate family only.

As we get more information and as things change we will keep you updated.

For His assistance and protection, we pray:

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil; May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; And do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

Additionally, the Parish Faith Formation program will be suspended for the remainder of the school year (through June 2020).

For parents of children scheduled to receive the Sacraments of the Eucharist or Confirmation, we will develop plans to move forward when the current crisis is resolved.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact Jim Gorman, Pastoral Associate for Faith Formation, at saintmichaelff@nycap.rr.com or 518-792 5859 extension 15.

Please stay safe and healthy! All of you will remain in our prayers as we struggle together through this difficult time.

Remember to pray each day for those who are suffering from Coronavirus, for those who care for them, for scientists working to find a cure, and for all those who are anxious and afraid during this time of uncertainty.
