NOW AND AT THE
HOUR OF OUR DEATH
for Catholics on
End-of-Life Issues

At some point every family must deal with issues involving end of life care for a loved one. As Catholics attempt to navigate the myriad medical, ethical, and religious questions that arise, all the while dealing with the grief of an impending death, it can become overwhelming.
In an effort to offer assistance, the New York State Catholic Conference has produced a website that tackles many of the common questions and concerns, offers  clarity and compassion, and serves as an education Resource for Catholics nationwide.

The Diocese of Rochester and the Gates Catholic Community is committed to the safety and well-being of our youth and vulnerable adults.  In ensuring this safety and well-being the diocese has created a mandatory workshop and background check for any adult having direct contact with our youth and vulnerable adults.  The two hour workshop, “Creating a Safe Environment” and subsequent confidential background check is provided at no charge to any adult wishing to assist directly with our youth and vulnerable adults. Please contact the Parish Office for further information.

PAVER UPDATE

Just wanted to let everyone know how things are progressing!  All three churches are done now, except for the final dressing at St. Helen's, and construction of the walking path around the North side of the pond at St. Jude's has begun.  Because the walkway will hopefully become the home of many, many pavers over the years, it will be completed in sections until the walkway reaches the tomb.  Feel free to pass the word  to others, and businesses as the more pavers we sell, the more it helps  our bottom line.  As a reminder, we can't do any forms of punctuation, symbols, or art work.  The engraver will only do letters, numbers, hyphen, and an mpersand if needed.  Also, we still have room at all the locations for additional engraved pavers.  Finally, thanks to those who have had positive comments about this fundraiser!
