Bishop Moynihan's coat of armsPalm Sunday Mass With Our Bishop

On April 7th, the Catholic Deaf Community from all four areas of the Syracuse Diocese gathered to celebrate a special day with  Bishop James Moynihan.

 Read about the Mass in the April 12th Catholic Sun.  Pictures are below.


The Celebration Continues

The Easter Celebration is not over Easter evening. It continues! 
Remember to celebrate with all Catholics on Ascension Thursday, May 24th, a Holy Day.  It is the day to remember that Jesus rose to heaven.  He gave us ALL a spread His love and teachings to the world.

Can we do it alone?  No! That is why He promised to send His Holy Spirit to be with us and help us. 

On Pentecost Sunday, June 3rd, we celebrate when the Holy Spirit came to the followers of Jesus.  It is the Birthday of the Church!
