Thanksgiving Mass 9:30 AM

Thanksgiving Mass is in the Church at 9:30 am.
NO 8 am Mass this day.

There will be a collection at our Thanksgiving Day Mass which goes entirely to the St. Vincent de Paul Society. When you make a donation to the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, you give hope to those in need. Please use the  special envelopes distributed by our parish Vincentians this weekend to help make a difference in your neighbors’ lives. These envelopes may also be donated after Thanksgiving. Thank you for your generosity.

#FaithChat

Because we were a bit slow at finalizing and promoting the launch of #FaithChat, our new program for high school-aged Catholics, and because everyone was swamped by the busy start of the school year, we have decided to postpone the Chats which were to take place in October and to launch the program with our November Chats, instead. Please spread the word among your high-school aged students, their friends and your neighbors. Each “Chat” takes just one hour a week for three weeks. The program is specially designed to give young people a chance to discuss and explore our faith; please visit our webpage and consider trying it.

As part of our continuous faith journey we wish to make available to young people a new avenue of growth, called #FaithChat, designed specifically by St. Boniface parishioners for our high school-aged Catholics.

#FaithChat consists of a number of “Chats” on various topics which take place in sessions throughout the year.  Each chat meets one day a week for three consecutive weeks.

Participants may choose one chat or several among sessions in October, November, January, February and March on Tuesdays or Wednesdays.  Chats take place in welcoming and comfortable new meeting areas which have been created in the school building and the Parish Center.

This video will tell you more about #FaithChat.  Our #FaithChat booklet and registration form are below.

Please Note:   #FaithChat requires the use of gathering spaces conducive to discussion groups.  Any used sofas, armchairs, bean bag chairs or similar items are needed to create these spaces.  If you have such an item that you wish to donate to the program please contact Mrs. Croce at 516-671-0418 or stbonccd@gmail.com.  Thank you for your continued support and devotion to the faith formation of the young people in our parish community.
