Mask Update as of 10/27/2021
As a Christian community we must protect the most vulnerable among us, including those who are health compromised and also our youngest children, who are not yet able to be vaccinated. Breakthrough cases are on the rise which put everyone at risk.
The CDC and Monroe County Health Department recommend "to maximize protection from the Delta variant and prevent possibly spreading it to others, wear a mask indoors in public if you are in an area of substantial or high transmission." As of October 27, 2021, Monroe County’s level of Community transmission continues to be high.
• We strongly recommend and ask that those who are vaccinated wear a mask at all times in the building.
• Masks are required for those who are not vaccinated.
Masks are available at the doors in case you forget to bring one. Thank you for your cooperation.
Social distancing is required by anyone not fully vaccinated, and are optional for those who are. We have seating available for both. 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 Hours
Monday - Friday: 8:30 AM to noon and 1:00 pm to 4:30 pm
The office is open to limited visitors Monday through Friday between 8:30 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

Please click here to read a letter from Bishop Matano regarding the XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops. A preliminary timeline for the diocesan phase is also attached here. Bishop Matano will further address the synodal process in his upcoming Letter to the Faithful in the Catholic Courier.
Prayer for the Synod:
Adsumus Sancte Spiritus
Every session of the Second Vatican Council began with the prayer Adsumus Sancte Spiritus, the first word of the original Latin, meaning, “We stand before You, Holy Spirit,” which has been historically used at Councils, Synods and other Church gatherings for hundreds of years, and is attributed to Saint Isidore of Seville (c. 560 - 4 April 636). As we embrace this Synodal Process, this prayer invites the Holy Spirit to be at work in us so that we may be a community and a people of grace.
We stand before You, Holy Spirit, as we gather together in Your name.
With You alone to guide us, make Yourself at home in our hearts;
Teach us the way we must go and how we are to pursue it.
We are weak and sinful; do not let us promote disorder.
Do not let ignorance lead us down the wrong path nor partiality influence our actions.
Let us find in You our unity so that we may journey together to eternal life and not stray from the way of truth and what is right.
All this we ask of You, who are at work in every place and time, in the communion of the Father and the Son, forever and ever.
