COVID-19, Masses and parish activities

St. Paul and St. Agnes Parish, just as other churches in Brooklyn and Queens, will continue to be open for the faithful to attend Mass. However, out of an abundance of caution, and in an effort to proactively protect the most vulnerable among us from the Covid 19 Virus, Bishop DiMarzio has dispensed the faithful from the obligation to attend Sunday Mass until further notice.

Please know that we at St. Paul and St. Agnes Parish will follow our regular Mass schedule both on weekends and weekdays. 

Additionally, parish religious education classes and weekly groups will be postponed for the time being
Other celebrations such as weddings and funerals will continue to take place.

For those who choose not to join with us at Mass on Sunday we ask that you watch Mass on your television or internet.

Understanding the importance of your financial support of  St. Paul and St. Agnes Parish,  and the need to maintain the ministries and well-being of our parish, we encourage those who have not yet done so to sign up for electronic giving by joining today. This will both maintain the much-needed financial support you give to the parish as we work to minister to people during this time.

For those attending Mass the faithful are urged to take the necessary precautions including hand washing, remaining at a safe distance from others and other safe practices, such as the reception of Holy Communion in the hand. No one should exchange hand shakes or kisses of any type during the welcome greeting or sign of peace during Mass. These simple steps will ensure the well being of all in attendance.  
The health of all the faithful of our parish is of utmost concern, so let us continue to pray to the Lord Who is a healer to protect us and bring about quickly an end to this present crisis.  
Faithfully in Christ 
Fr. Alex , Fr. Paul and Deacon LeRoy
