 Messages from Bishop Lucia

on Covid-19 and the status of the celebration of Sacraments in the Syracuse Diocese

Please use this link to see all the statements from Bishop Lucia, guidelines for parishes to follow and other information related to the impact of COVID-19 on parishes.


May is over, but we are keeping our information and links for praying the Rosary front and center as the world needs us to continue praying.

For resources to help learn and pray the Rosary please visit our Faith Formation website Mary, Month of May page

Additionally, Pope Francis wrote two prayers to Mary that can be recited at the end of the rosary, prayers he said he would be reciting "in spiritual union with all of you."

Both prayers acknowledge Mary's closeness to her son's followers and ask for her protection and for her intercession just as she interceded with Jesus on behalf of the newlyweds at Cana who had run out of wine for their wedding feast.

The prayers and articles on the Pope's request can be found HERE and HERE


A message from the Campaign Against Hunger:  To all our Parishioners from the CAH ministry:  At a time when our food pantries are experiencing great demand, we have not been able to collect donations to send.  We are asking those of you who have continually supported the CAH mission to donate now, if you can.  We will make sure all money received is sent where the needs are greatest.  All donations can be sent to St. Mary's with a request that it be used for the Campaign Against Hunger.  Thank you for your generosity!
