CHANGE OF SCHEDULE. To balance out our numbers for fellowship, we made a slight shift in the cut off for the alphabet (last names). See below.

Sundays, individuals may bring food or drinks as they are able. They can be home-made, or store bought. Sweets, savory, healthy, anything is welcome. There is no obligation, just a way to share with each other if you are able. If you forget or are not able to, it is fine.

But you don’t have to bring each time. We have divided the Sundays by last names.

2nd Sunday = A-P

4th Sunday = Q-Z

Retreat and Chrism Mass

4:00 pm – Saturday, Oct. 6

Mary Magdalene Church, East Rochester NY

During the ECC East Coast Retreat this weekend we will have a Chrism Mass. During the ceremony, the holy oils used for sacraments and rituals are blessed or consecrated.  The Chrism Mass is a sign of the unity of the bishop to the priests and the entire Church community.

You can join via live stream using either of the links below:
