Father Donovan sent out a letter to all parishioners on June 9th outlining the newest updates regarding the reopening of our parish (you can read the letter HERE!) - which includes the following:
PEACE Camp 2020 - July 20-23 5:30-8:00 Campers K-6 Counselors Grade 7 and Up
Join us for our Socially Distanced peace filled week of fun.
Since we cannot attend Mass physically in our churches, our collections aren’t there to still pay expenses. While we are financially stable, this will have an impact on our parish budget. We pray and hope to maintain the upkeep of our parish, just as our parishioners do with their homes, at this trying time. We hope you will celebrate Sunday Mass from your homes by watching it on television or on our Facebook Page. We ask that if it’s in your budget to please continue contributing to Our Lady of Sorrows by mailing your donations to our parish office: PO Box 326, Vestal NY 13851 or taking advantage of on-line giving!
Be sure to get the new OLS App to keep up to date on everything going on at our Parish!
Our Food Pantry plans to remain open during this Coronavirus pandemic at the regularly scheduled hours of:

We are now accepting donations of non-perishable items for the pantry. They may be dropped off in the Gathering Space during office hours.
During this time the we will be taking the following precautionary measures:
Call the Food Pantry at (607) 785-3214 and leave your name, phone number and the number of people in your household. Please tells us which day you are planning to come to the pantry and we will call you back and go through your selections.
When you arrive at the pantry, please park in a line along the curb and remain in your car. We will be doing curbside distribution of food so someone from the pantry will meet you at your car and give you further instructions. Please do not get out of your car until your food is delivered to you.
Please follow all health recommendations to ensure not only your safety but the safety of others. May God bless you and your families with good health.

We thought this would be a good way to review as we move closer to First Communion. We have many options for our upcoming First Eucharistic Celebration, and we are just waiting to see when we are allowed to gather together again, so until then, this is a good spot to review topics, vocabulary and ask questions.
Watch the video and work on the puzzle below for vocabulary building and we'll see if everyone likes this. You can even set up your own home altar to practice. Send me a picture of your altar at the email below.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me here.
You may need to do this on a separate sheet of paper but unscramble these very important words to help review.
