Given the situation we are in, the staff of the Office of Faith Formation and I will communicate with you using the telephone or DioNet as needed.  Please continue to send us any requests that you might have on your own behalf or on behalf of the people you minister to and with.  We are also moving forward with our work in the Office, so please feel free to send us anything that is currently or, in some cases, past due and that you have been able to complete.

I look forward to gathering for our previously planned Preparing for Advent Evening of Reflection with Father Gonzague Leroux from Heart’s Home USA in Brooklyn on Thursday, November 29th from 7:00-9:00 p.m. at the Diocesan Office Building, 310 Prospect Park West, Brooklyn.  An Event Notice and registration information will be posted soon, but SAVE THE DATE.

May God continue to assist us in our needs.  All Saints, pray for us!
