NOTE FROM FR. IVAN
I wanted to let everyone know that this weekend, January 9th and 10th, our 5:30 Mass is unable to be life-streamed for all at home. We plan to be back on schedule next weekend. All of our Masses in Church will be said as scheduled.
 
Please know that all of our parishioners are in my prayers daily as we try to get through this Covid-19 pandemic.
 
May God bless you all.
Fr. Ivan

NOTE FROM FR. IVAN
 
As we look forward with joy to the birth of our Lord, Jesus, on this Christmas Day we also must celebrate in a far different way than we have in the past.
 
Due to the pandemic, many will be celebrating without their families and will not be attending Mass in our churches; but we must remain strong in our faith and follow the guidelines to hopefully avoid contracting the Covid virus. This has been a very unusual year for all of us, and now that the vaccine is becoming available we will hopefully be able to get through it safely.
 
With the help of Deacon Henry, Elyn & Erik Moscicki and Mark Hoerbelt, I will be celebrating Christmas Mass through live-streaming beginning at 4:00PM on Christmas Eve. Our Mass will be proceeded by our usual Christmas Concert beginning around 3:30PM. I hope you will be able to join us on Facebook, YouTube or on this website.
 
I would like to thank Fr. Bob, Deacon Tom, Deacon Henry, Mark Hoerbelt, the Parish Staff, St. Joseph’s Sodality, Our Lady of Batavia Knights of Columbus, our Amigos and Tom Trescott, as well as all of our Parishioners. I am very grateful for all of the help and support you have given to both me and Resurrection Parish throughout the past year.
 
On behalf of Fr. Bob, Deacon Tom, Deacon Henry and our Parish Staff, I wish everyone a Blessed Christmas and a safe and healthy New Year.
 
You are all remembered in my daily prayers and Masses. I will continue to pray for your health and safety during these difficult times.
 
Feliz Navidad,
Fr. Ivan

Note from Fr. Ivan

This weekend we celebrate the 2nd Sunday of Advent.

    "Prepare the way of the Lord" was the message of John the Baptist and the message of the Gospels. We do not enter into God's kingdom by accident or by default. It is like anything else in life, if we want something worthwhile or want to accomplish anything worth accomplishing, we need to prepare.

      John the Baptist is not talking about preparing our house, or our gifts, or our meals, or our celebrations, which we always do at this time of the year and are great traditions. He is talking about preparing our hearts.

      Let us all resolve to do our best throughout Advent to prepare ourselves and our hearts for the coming of our Lord Jesus at Christmas.

      As you know, Fr. Bob and I have been celebrating Daily Masses and all Weekend Masses at both St. Mary's and St. Joseph's. However, I am sorry to advise you we will not be celebrating Christmas Eve or Christmas Day Masses in Church with our parish family. This was a difficult decision for us. 

      Most of our neighboring parishes are not celebrating Christmas Masses and we were concerned we would have very large crowds. As you know we always have standing room only at most of our Masses on this holiday and we would be unable to follow our guidelines of social distancing. We do not want to have to turn anyone away.

     We will be live-streaming Mass at 4:00PM on Christmas Eve proceeded by a concert beginning at 3:40PM. We cannot bring our choir together because of the pandemic, but the usual concert will be played by our Choir Director, Mark Hoerbelt, with his daughter, Madison as featured soloist. Please join us live on Facebook or find us on YouTube or on our Parish Website: www.resurrectionbatavia.com.

     We will continue our regular weekend schedule on Saturday, December 26th. 

     Please watch your mail in the next week as I am once again sending a letter to all our parishioners. 

   May the Lord continue to bless you throughout this Advent Season.

Road to Renewal: Bishop Scharfenberger's Pastoral Letter

Our Apostolic Administrator, Bishop Edward B. Scharfenberger has issued a Pastoral Letter to the Clergy, Religious and Lay Faithful of our diocese. The letter is being mailed to registered Catholic households as well as being made available at all of our parishes and Catholic Institutions in time for the First Sunday of Advent, November 29, 2020. The purpose of the Pastoral Letter is to provide the spiritual foundation for our Diocesan Road to Renewal Initiative. Everyone in our diocese is encouraged to read the Pastoral Letter and to spend time reflecting and sharing with one another the significance of this call to renewal in the Diocese of Buffalo. 

Reorganization For the Future...together.

NOTE FROM FR. IVAN
 
I regret having to advise our parishioners that I am taking a pre-emptive measure and canceling our weekend masses for November 21st and 22nd, as well as on Thanksgiving Day, November 26th. Weekend and Thanksgiving Masses will be online through Facebook and our website as usual.
 
We have been notified by the Health Department that 5 members of a family attending a funeral last week have tested positive for Covid-19. As we have been strictly following all of the recommended guidelines by the State and our Diocese such as wearing masks, social distancing, limiting the number of people attending, movement around the church, and disinfecting the entire interior of the church after EVERY Mass, I believe we are doing the best we can to stay safe. In addition, we have notified the Diocese regarding our situation. However, we cannot know for certain that everyone entering our church is healthy.
 
We will be temporarily closed to have some extra cleaning done and continue to disinfect every day (even though no one will be in the church).
 
I hope everyone will feel comfortable returning to Mass on the 28th.
 
Sincerely,
Fr. Ivan
