Dear parishioners and friends,
We pray for all those who have been impacted by COVID-19. In a special way, we remember those who have died and their loved ones in mourning.
We also pray for the scientists, healthcare professionals and civil leaders working to end this crisis, providing relief for the sick, the quarantined and those facing economic hardship.
For weeks, no public Masses have been celebrated at the parishes and centers served by the Paulist Fathers. Like all of society, we have taken necessary and appropriate steps to help limit the spread of the virus.
In the place of public Masses, we are providing live broadcasts of private Masses. While less than ideal, these broadcasts keep us connected to so many of you, and provide us an opportunity to share the Word of God and pray for a Spiritual Communion.
Would you make a financial contribution to allow us to continue these broadcasts?
We also are raising funds now to "bridge the gap" due to:
- Significant loss of income from cancelled Lenten parish missions presented by Paulist missionaries
- Significant loss of funds from unavoidable reduction or elimination of Paulist priest salaries in various cities deeply impacted by COVID-19
- Unexpected staffing, maintenance and food service expenses in Paulist rectories to protect elderly and at-risk Paulist Fathers from the virus

You also may mail your gift to:
Paulist Fathers Office of Mission Advancement

Please make checks payable to "Paulist Fathers."
If you have any questions, please e-mail us at [email protected].
Thank you for your consideration and generosity! Please know that you and your loved ones are in our daily prayers. We pray that you may stay safe and healthy. Please pray for us, too.
May God soon deliver us from this crisis! Come, Holy Spirit!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Fr. Eric Andrews, C.S.P.
President, The Paulist Fathers
