May 31, 2020 - Sunday Bulletin Resurrection Church
Sunday, May 31, 2020 Resurrection Church Bulletin
Last Friday a team of cleaners sanitized and disinfected the entire church. The church is clean and neat and looks good. Although we are still weeks away from opening for weekend mass, we are preparing and looking forward soon to that glorious day. The
will be opening on weekdays to receive holy communion (only). The
will be conducting weekday masses. The
will be the resumption of all masses.
We are designating approximately 200 seats in Church that satisfy the NYS requirements of safe social distancing. Since only 200 people can attend mass at one time we are considering adding masses. For instance, we are thinking of offering three masses on Saturday afternoon at 4 PM and 5 PM and 6 PM (masses will only last 30-35 minutes during this transition in the summer) We will inform you well in advance of the final summer schedule. Thank you for your flexibility and cooperation during these trying times. Of course, people who are feeling sick or elderly or just plain anxious are exempt from Sunday mass.
2. We wish to acknowledge gratefully the CYO parents who made a significant contribution to Resurrection Outreach to support our neighbors at Caritas and Don Bosco in Port Chester. Slightly over $40,000 was raised! This is quite an accomplishment. We asked CYO parents to consider donating a portion of their refund from basketball fees from the spring season. Your generosity is deeply appreciated. The monies collected will be put to good use during these difficult times in our neighboring parish.
3. Resurrection School is open for registration for the 2020-2021 school year. School resumes on September 7, 2020. Resurrection school is highly acclaimed and one of the best rated elementary schools in New York. We are proud to report that Resurrection school was first in the Archdiocese to use online Zoom education. The tuition rates for next year have only been raised a modest 3%. We are accepting applications for full and half day Montessori Pre-K3/4 and grades Kindergarten through 8th. Please contact the principal, GinaMarie Fonte at 914- 967-1218 or via email
. Virtual tours are available for interested families.
4. We will be opening the 2021 mass book in 2-3 weeks. This year we are offering the new option of reserving masses
We will be sending a registration form using flocknote and request that you complete it and return it to us by July 20th. Mass offerings are $20.00 per mass. There will be an opportunity to reserve masses using the paper form starting August 1st. Paper forms will be available at the doors of the church or the rectory beginning July 30th. Since the rectory office is still closed, we advise you to use the new procedure for everyone's safety and benefit.
Having masses said for a loved one at Resurrection Church is a noble and ideal way to honor a deceased person. There is a beautiful tradition in the Catholic Church of offering masses for the soul of a family member or friend. We encourage all Catholics to properly mourn the loss of a cherished relation or friend by having a mass said in our parish. The name of the deceased is announced by the priest at the mass and published in the Sunday bulletin.
5. We pray for the deceased of our parish especially Yukio Ishizuka, Richard G. Mascali, Robert George Hueffed Sr., William Andrew Shea, Connor Dooley, James A. Cannon, Cesar A. Zuniga, John R. Hansen Jr., Freddie Favia, John Lane, Elizabeth Ann Savage, Valerie Modello, William McKenna, Lawrence Corroon, William McGuire, Maria Cecilia Ceja Mercado, Natalie DiMarzo, Brian McGrath, Sr. Clare Aronholz, Virginia Grainger, Alan Oyugi, and Paul Green.
6. We pray for all who have been adversely affected by the coronavirus especially the recently sick, emergency medical personnel, police officers, firefighters, nurses, doctors and hospital employees.

Above is a video of Resurrection Church using a drone.
It has been almost 3 months since we have been allowed to attend mass.
We send this photo of our beautiful church to you in case you forgot what it looks like.
On the evening of that first day of the week, when the disciples were together, with the doors locked for fear of the Jewish leaders, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you!” After he said this, he showed them his hands and side. The disciples were overjoyed when they saw the Lord.
Again Jesus said, “Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you.” And with that he breathed on them and said, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive anyone’s sins, their sins are forgiven; if you do not forgive them, they are not forgiven.”
