As I am sure everyone knows by now, for the protection of our people and in the hope that we might “flatten the curve” of this deadly virus, Bishop Di Marzio has closed all the churches, rectory offices, and schools in the Diocese of Brooklyn.  I am sure you find the inability to attend Mass a very painful situation.

We priests already miss our community.  None of us imagined how much we would have to sacrifice this Lent.  Be assured that every Mass intention is being fulfilled as we are celebrating Mass in private.  I hope that we can all observe the lockdown and the virus may run its course as quickly as possible.  Meanwhile, you are in our prayers.
