Bishop's letter of March 16 on suspension of public gatherings. Sacramental Guidelines in light of coronavirus as of March 17. At this time we are not able to have weddings and funerals, but we can schedule them for after the coronavirus subsides.

Electronic Giving During Coronavirus
With the onset of the COVID-19 coronavirus, all of us are in the midst of great financial instability. For us at St. Mary’s Church, things are particularly shook. Without public celebration of Masses, there is no collection/offering, and a grave disruption of weekly funding for our parish.
If you currently use weekly giving envelopes, please drop them in the mail or insert them through the mail-slot at the front door of the office at 15 Clark St, Auburn, NY 13021.
Virus-free giving options:
- Text the phrase “Give” to 315-216-2871 and follow the prompts.
- Make a one-time gift via Donate Here
- Enrolling in Electronic Giving, as outlined below.
Electronic Giving is fast, easy, and secure. Have your contribution debited from your checking or savings account and deposited into the church’s account safely and electronically. You will never need to remember your checkbook or wallet again.
Enrollment forms are in the back of church. Or download the St. Mary's Electronic Giving Enrollment Form and return it, completed, to 15 Clark St, Auburn, NY 13021.
If you wish to make your gift to the 2019 Catholic Ministries Appeal online, you may visit www.dor.org/cma. You may also text your CMA gift here, and remember, the code for St. Mary’s Church is CMA210.
Stay connected with daily and weekly worship! Catholic radio at 88.7FM has Catholic Mass at 8a every day. EWTN cable channel (Spectrum ch 44 Verizon ch 285 in Auburn) has Mass televised daily at 8a and 12pm. Subscribe here for parish Masses on YouTube.
If you are healthy and have time, email firstname.lastname@example.org if you wish to help out by volunteering to help those in particular need, even if via phone or internet. We cannot foresee precisely how this would look, but want to have a sense of willing volunteers.
Let us know if you are in need of help. Really! We are church, which means we are more than just a club that gathers for an hour on Sunday, we are a family, the family of God. We can't guarantee that we can meet all needs, but we can always pray for you, help connect you with others who can help. God helps us, and we will help where we can. Love will keep us together, and guide us through any trial!
God may be calling you be a Catholic priest!
