“Thank you for continuing to support your parish and the vital ministries of our Church as your means allow during this most challenging time for all of us.  The Church continues to serve the spiritual and physical needs of people… Weekly collections mailed or given online will be critical to the sustaining and reemergence of our parishes”.

– John O. Barres, Bishop of Rockville Centre

Honoring Frontline Heroes

We will, along with other area churches, be ringing our bells at St. Boniface each day at 3:00 PM for all the frontline workers serving us during the COVID-19 crisis: our healthcare professionals and other essential workers – police officers, firefighters, EMT’s, sanitation, utility and shop workers. When you hear the bells, please pause and say a prayer for our brave community servants.
