    Monday, December 17th, our Diocese will join the Archdiocese of New York in celebrating Advent Reconciliation Monday. On this special day, all the parishes of our dioceses will offer the Sacrament of Reconciliation from 4:00PM to 8:00 PM, in preparation for the great Feast of the Lord’s Nativity.
    The Lenten Reconciliation Monday has been a great success in our Diocese over the past few years. This Advent over 500 churches in New York City and the lower counties will be simultaneously offering the sacrament - a powerful invitation to those Catholics who may be away from the sacrament for a period of time, to be drawn back to this encounter with God’s reconciling love.
    Here at St. Teresa’s, confessions will be heard from 4 to 5 pm in church, from 5 to 6 in the rectory, and 6 to 8 pm in church. Of course, confessions are still heard every Saturday at 4 pm in the church.


    Please join us today Sunday, December 9th at 4pm for our first Bilingual “Lessons & Carols.” The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates back to the late 19th century. In this service, we traditionally listen to nine Scripture lessons which recount the Fall, the promise of a Messiah, the Incarnation, and the Great Commission to preach the Good News. Each Lesson is followed by a carol or other hymn that reflects the lesson’s message and a brief prayer. This year our service will be slightly shorter and include seven Scripture lessons and carols/ hymns. The hymns will be mostly Advent-based but will be hymns that everyone knows. The lessons and hymns will be evenly divided in English and Spanish. This service is free and open to everyone, so please come and join us!


    All “registered and contributing” parishioners are invited to pick up a year’s worth of envelopes in a boxed set. The box contains all the envelopes one will need from Jan. 13, 2019 to January 5, 2020, including Special Diocesan collections and holy days.
    The boxed envelopes are distributed every weekend after Masses.
    The boxes are arranged alphabetically, facilitating distribution. Please be patient - we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
