Mass Schedule for Thanksgiving

Our Thanksgiving Masses are over and the churches are closed for the Thanksgiving holiday. We wish all of you a Blessed Thanksgiving filled with every good thing!

Some of the non-perishable food items to that were brought to each of our Masses of Thanksgiving, as a sign of our gratitude and solidarity with the hungry, will be brought to the HOPE Soup Kitchen in New Rochelle. The Knights of Columbus will bring the remaining food to the soup kitchen run by the Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal in East Harlem.
