Letter from Bishop Gerald M. Barbarito

Gracious and Merciful God,

We pray today for the Ukrainian people and ask for Your intervention in this senseless war levied against them by Russia. We pray, O God, for protection and that there would be peace. We pray for restoration and renewed hope. We pray for the families, especially, the children living through the horrors of war and all the upheaval and tribulation it brings. We also pray for those protesting in Russia against these violent acts by their government. We ask that You would protect, cover and keep these protesters as they put their bodies on the line in the name of what is just and righteous. We pray for the entire world community, including the leaders in our own country. Give them wisdom and ingenuity to respond in ways that ends this war and moves us all to a world where Your peace abides. Hear the cries of Your people, O God.

Lord, have mercy. Christ, have mercy. Amen.

 

Most Reverend Gerald M. Barbarito, along with all the Bishops in the world, received the attached letter and Act of Consecration prayer from Pope Francis regarding Friday’s consecration of Ukraine and Russia to the Immaculate Heart on Mary.

Pope Francis Prayer Intention

 

Faith-Filled Young People
We pray for all young people, called to live life to the fullest; may they see in Mary’s life the way to listen, the depth of discernment, the courage that faith generates, and the dedication to service.

- Pope Francis -

Pope Francis releases his prayer intention for the month of May 2022, inviting everyone to pray for Faith-Filled Young People.
 

This month of May, the Pope begins a cycle of three prayer intentions dedicated to the family. He has decided to begin by speaking first to young people, who “want to build something new.” He offers them an example to follow: “When I think of a model with whom young people can identify with, our Mother, Mary, always comes to mind.” Francis asks young people to take risks like she did, keeping in mind that they “need to discern and discover what Jesus wants” from them. In this discernment, Francis says, “it’s a great help to listen to the words of grandparents.” And he proposes three companions for their life journey: courage, knowing how to listen, and dedication to service.

Eucharistic Adoration

 

You are needed!

The Adoration Chapel is open. Code available at the parish office.

There is an ongoing need of adorers. Can you please find the time to schedule an hour each week for just one month?  Please contact Michele at 646-320-4233 or email: [email protected]     

Drive Through Holy Communion

Each Sunday, there is a drive through Holy Communion for those people who watch our livestreaming 9:00am Mass.

Time: 12:00pm – 12:15pm

Once the 11:00am Mass people have left the parking lot, we ask you to join the line by the parking lot doors.

After receiving Holy Communion, please park for a few minutes to spend some time in thanksgiving prayer.

Prayer for Protection of Storms and Illness

 

God our Father, Creator of the Universe and Lord over all creation, we humbly stand before you as your children in thanksgiving for your loving
care and protection.

We ask that you keep us safe from all hurricanes and illness which may threaten us in the coming seasons.

Protect us from all fear and anxiety of storms and give us an ardent trust and hope in Your love and mercy.

You alone have the power to command the sea, the wind and the rain.

You alone bring peace, calm, and safety.

Father, we thank you in advance, for you are our only Refuge.

We ask this through Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit, God, forever and ever.

Amen. Mary, Queen of the Apostles, and Patroness of our Diocese, pray for us.

Dios Padre nuestro, Creador del Universo y Señor de toda la creación, humildemente nos presentamos a ti, como hijos tuyos, en acción de gracias por tu amoroso cuidado y protección.

Te pedimos que nos guardes de los huracanes y las
enfermedades que nos puedan amenazar en la próxima temporada.

Protégenos de todo temor y de la ansiedad que nos causan las tormentas y danos confianza ardiente en Tu amor y misericordia.

Solo Tú tienes el poder de mandar al mar, al viento y a la lluvia.

Solo Tú traes paz, calma y seguridad.

Padre, te agradecemos de antemano, pues tu eres nuestro único refugio.

Te lo pedimos por Cristo, tu Hijo, que vive y reina contigo y el Espíritu Santo, Dios, por los siglos de los siglos.

Amén. María, Reina de los
Apóstoles y Patrona de nuestra Diócesis, ruega por nosotros.
