Mask & Seating Update
We now have physically distant and non-physically distant seating. The physically distant seating is for those who are not full vaccinated as well as anyone who is not comfortable sitting on the non-physical distant side.
Masks and social distancing are required by anyone not fully vaccinated, and are optional for those who are. We are relying on the goodness and honesty of our people to follow the NY State guidelines and use the appropriate seating.
The ushers will help if assistance is needed.
Weekend Mass times are Saturday at 4:00 PM and Sunday at 9:00 AM & 11:00 AM.
Weekday Mass times are Monday through Thursday at 8:30 AM.
If possible please sign up for a weekend mass each week by Thursday evening using the link above (or call Jodie in the office at 671-2100) so that we may have the seat groups set up six feet apart.
Weekday masses do not have a sign up.
With the recent release of the new COVID guidelines from the CDC, NY State and the Diocese of Rochester, the St. Paul’s staff met via Zoom this morning to discuss what our policy will be moving forward.
After much deliberation the staff has decided that since the guidelines are not clear that St. Paul’s will remain status quo for now and continue practicing social distancing, wearing masks at all times in the building and hand sanitizing. This decision was based upon our main objective of keeping everyone safe without dividing the congregation between vaccinated and non-vaccinated or social-distanced and non-social-distanced.
We will continue to monitor the updates from the CDC and the Diocese of Rochester and will keep you up to date as we make any changes.
Parish Office Update
Starting June 1, the office will be on summer hours:
Monday - Thursday: 8:00 AM to noon and 12:45 pm to 4:30 pm
Friday: 8:00 am to noon
The office is open to limited visitors Monday through Friday between 8:00 am and noon. Please access the office by ringing the bell by the office door and you will be buzzed in. At this time we are still requiring masks when visiting the office staff as some of us have vulnerable family members.

Pray the Act of Spiritual Communion below with the priest after he receives Communion.
An Act of Spiritual Communion
My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.
-St. Alphonsus Liguori
