Community Supported Agriculture –  Sign up by May 1st

Interested in joining a CSA? A CSA is a way to purchase a weekly allotment of fresh vegetables from a local organic farm. Members buy a share in the Spring, and during the growing season (mid-June to October) an assortment of vegetables are delivered to the church to be picked up by the members. The cost of a share is $550 for the full season of vegetables. Extra or unwanted vegetables are donated to the Mary Brenan INN. Please let Fr. Kevin know if you are interested. We need about 10 shares in order for our church to be a pickup site.


Children’s Prayer Breakfast

Our next Children’s Prayer Breakfast will be held on Sunday, May 5th at 9:30 am.

SAVE THE DATE!  Sunday, May 5, at 3pm

“The William Rosencrans Honors Recital” featuring OUR Courtney Cox, sorprano, will be held at The Fortunoff Theater, Monroe Lecture Hall, at Hofstra University. This church & choir has been so blessed to have Courtney as our fearless Alto section leader. She has changed the dynamics and confidence of the alto section by her leadership. We now appear to learn new pieces more quickly– she’s that good. It’s like magic. Ya gotta love a gal that knows her notes. I encourage you all to come and support Courtney in her last Senior Recital. You will have an afternoon of relaxing pleasure.  OH!!!!!!! AND IT’S FREE!
