Leisure Club Luncheon
Each Tuesday from October through May, interested senior citizens meet for worship and lunch. Participants attend the 12:15 Mass in the Church, followed by lunch in the Rochester Room. Volunteers are always welcome, especially to assist with preparing, serving, and clearing the lunch.

A coffee hour is held in the Rochester Room following the Family Mass every Sunday. This is a special time for longtime parishioners, newcomers, and visitors to meet in an informal setting. Join us to enjoy a coffee and something sweet. Volunteers are needed to host the coffee hour. For more information or to host an upcoming coffee hour, please call Elizabeth Williams, (917) 519-5448.
