From the Pastor's Desk This Week
- September 15, 2019- Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ, I spent the last five days on a silent retreat at the Monastery of Our Lady in Beatitude in Livingston Manor, NY. It is home to the Monastic Community of Bethlehem, of the Assumption of the Virgin, and of St. Bruno. If memory serves,… …
The Viri Galilaei, a schola of Catholic men from the area, have asked to make St. Pius their “home away from home.” The ensemble was without a place to gather to pray and sing, and we’re happy to help them. They will sing in our “temporary church” (Community Room) on Wednesdays at 7 PM with a Mass in the Extraordinary Form, followed at 8 PM by Vespers, until Thanksgiving.
Confessions are heard every Wednesday from 7 – 8 PM in the Chapel.
“Therefore, welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.” Romans 15:7.
