HOLY VIRGIN OF GUADALUPE

Holy Virgin of Guadalupe, Queen of the Angels and Mother of the Americas
We fly to you today as your beloved children
We ask you to intercede for us with your Son
As you did at the wedding in Cana

Pray for us, Loving Mother
And gain for our nation and world
And for all our families and loved ones
The protection of your Holy Angels
That we may be spared the worst of this illness

For those already afflicted
We ask you to obtain the grace of healing and deliverance
Hear the cries of those who are vulnerable and fearful
Wipe away their tears and help them to trust

In this time of trial and testing,
Teach all of us in the Church to love one another
To be patient and kind
Help us to bring the peace of Jesus to our land and to our hearts

We come to you with confidence
Knowing that you are truly our compassionate mother,
Health of the sick and cause of our joy

Shelter us under the mantle of your protection,
Keep us in the embrace of your arms,
Help us always to know the love of your Son, Jesus, Amen

 

Masses Update

THE DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN CORONAVIRUS UPDATE

As a follow-up to the directive to suspend all Public Masses until further notice, the Most Reverend Nicholas DiMarzio, Bishop of Brooklyn, has issued a number of additional guidelines, governing the practice of the faith as a result of the Coronavirus outbreak, to all parishes throughout Brooklyn and Queens.

To comply with the government recommendation to avoid
gatherings of 10 or more people, the following has been
implemented in the Diocese of Brooklyn effective immediately:

PALM SUNDAY AND HOLY WEEK SERVICES

There will be no Masses open to the public on Palm Sunday or Easter Sunday
GIVEN THAT NEW YORK IS THE EPICENTER OF THIS CRISIS
CHURCHES WILL REMAIN CLOSED.  

 MINDFUL OF EVERYONE’S HEALTH, PALMS WILL NOT BE DISTRIBUTED TO THE FAITHFUL AT THIS TIME, THEY WILL NOT BE LEFT OUTSIDE OF CHURCH BUT WILL BE BLESSED AND DISTRIBUTED  AT A LATER DATE USING THE

BLESSING OUTSIDE OF MASS, COMMUNICATED BY BISHOP DIMARZIO.

  • Reconciliation Monday, a special time devoted to confession at the start of Holy Week, has been cancelled.  However, Priests will be available for individual confessions throughout the remainder of the Lenten
    season and during this period of crisis.

 

The Mass of the Lord’s Supper (Holy Thursday), the Liturgy of the Lord’s Passion (Good Friday) the Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday, will not be celebrated publicly. A broadcast schedule of the services with no congregation, to air on NET-TV, the cable channel of the Diocese of Brooklyn, will be announced at a later date.

“In the days and weeks ahead, let us ask God to watch over the people of our Diocese and all of His people; those who are sick, those who will fall ill, and those who are caring for them,” said Bishop Nicholas DiMarzio.

At all times, but especially now, the safety and well-being of our faith community is our primary concern. The Diocese of Brooklyn will continue to deliver important information in a timely manner.
