Second Sunday in Ordinary Time



Both Parish Offices will be CLOSED Monday, January 21st In recognition of Martin Luther King Day.

We will re-open Tuesday, January 22nd at normal times.

There is no Eucharistic Adoration when the offices are closed.


Daily Mass will be at Our Lady of the Rosary until further notice as construction has begun at Our Lady of Lourdes on the Choir loft.


January 27 - Classes for K-5, 9:50 am - 11:00 am.

Empowered by the Eucharist, our Faith Formation program is committed to be a welcoming community that grows in faith to share Christ’s love with our children, so they also become joyful witnesses and selfless stewards in the Church.


Alpha is an evangelistic course which seeks to introduce the basics of the Christian faith through a series of talks and discussions.

We are planning to host another Alpha in January.

We will meet on Mondays from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm starting January 21, 2019 at Our Lady of the Rosary.

The sessions are weekly with a day off during President’s week and ending before Palm Sunday.

Registration is required (to have adequate food) but there is no cost. Please email or call (315) 794-5038 to reserve a spot.


Our Lady of the Rosary is in need of Money Counters on Sunday mornings from 7:30 - 10:00 am.

Anyone interested in helping, please call Dan Swider at (315) 796-1088. Thank you!


The Bathroom at OLR is finished...the other good news is that PRIVATE donations covered the entire cost-no Parish funds were used.

THANK YOU to all who contributed to this much needed project.

Rev 21:3 And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.

Every story in the Bible helps us to get to know what God is like, what we are like, and the way God wants us to live.

You know that God wants US to PRAISE HIM, but do you know that HE wants the WEATHER to PRAISE Him, too?

“Like the cold of snow in the time of harvest is a faithful messenger to those who send him; He refreshes the soul of his masters.“ Proverbs 25:13
