Update July 2021: we are following the guidance of state and local officials, as well as the guidance of the Episcopal Diocese of New York in regards to phased reopening when it is safe. As of May 19, 2021, New York State has adopted the CDC’s “Interim Public Health Recommendations for Fully Vaccinated People” for most business and public settings. Please read the guidelines (here) for masking recommendations. Vestry meetings are back in person. Our Thrift Shop is open. Eucharist continues to be in one kind. We will continue to monitor the situation in regard to Sunday School (still on hold). Hospitality has returned in a somewhat limited fashion. Please continue to support the Ulster Immigrant Defense Network in these times. Please contact the church, Father Frank, or Madre Filomena with any questions.

Culturally Diverse

Our parish members come from diverse cultural backgrounds and a wide variety of religious traditions within the universal church. Our vision is to be a unified congregation that worships in two languages but otherwise strives to be one in all other aspects of our common life. Mass is offered in both English and Spanish.

Welcome to All

We welcome first-time visitors, regardless of denomination. All baptized persons are welcome to share the sacraments of the Lord’s Body and Blood. Our faith community makes every effort to be welcoming and embracing without being overwhelming or invasive.

Parish Outreach

Our parish is committed to serving the needs of those who live on the social and economic margins of society with various efforts directed toward those in need in the wider community.
