    URGENT UPDATE FROM THE DIOCESE OF BROOKLYN

    Given the continuing and growing concern about the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Bishop DiMarzio has determined that all public masses be cancelled in the Diocese of Brooklyn, until further notice. This includes weekday masses as well as Sunday. The faithful of the diocese are reminded that the Bishop has issued a dispensation from the obligation to attend Mass on Sunday. The obligation to keep the Lord’s Day holy can be fulfilled by maintaining a prayerful attitude and through personal and family prayer.

    The faithful are urged to watch the celebration of the Eucharist on TV, as well.

    The celebrations are scheduled as follows: Saturday at 6 pm: Vigil pre-recorded from Immaculate Conception in Jamaica (English)

    Sunday at 11 am: Live from St. James Cathedral in Downtown Brooklyn (English) Sunday at 1:30 pm: Pre-recorded from Co-Cathedral of St. Joseph in Prospect Heights (Spanish) Weekdays: 8am and 12 pm English and 9am Spanish on NET-TV.

    NET-TV can be seen in the New York City area on Spectrum (Channel 97), Optimum (Channel 30) and FIOS (Channel 48). Viewers can also tune in online at www.netny.tv

    In light of the continuing crisis, the situation is being monitored carefully and updates will follow. Let us continue to pray, especially through the intercession of Our Lady of Guadalupe, for those who are sick, for medical personnel and for all people as we confront this challenge.

  • ORIGINS OF APRIL FOOLS’ DAY

    The term “All Fools” was probably meant as a deliberate stab at All Saints (November1) and All Souls (November 2) Day. Although the origin of playing practical jokes and pranks on this day is hazy, many folklorists believe it may go back to 16th - century France. At that time, New Year’s Day was March 25, with a full week of partying and exchanging gifts until April1. In 1582, the Gregorian calendar moved New Year’s Day to January 1. Those who forgot or refused to honor the new calendar were teasingly call, “April Fool!” Weather folklore states, “If it thunders on All Fools’ Day, it brings good crops of corn and hay.”
