    • Please Return the Lenten Mite Boxes/Bags  ASAP

      As you may know, our parish and school communities assist a sister parish in Old Managua, Nicaragua. The Parish of Cristo Agonizante del Rosario is often in need of school supplies and daily necessities for the students and families in that parish.

      Please return the “Lenten Coins for Nicaragua” mite box before the end of Lent so that all proceeds may be sent to Fr. O'Down in Nicaragua for Easter. If you do not have a box and would like to contribute, please use a baggie or any receptacle. Thank you for your generosity! 

    • On March 19, 2021 (the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary), Cardinal Dolan consecrated the Archdiocese of New York to St. Joseph. View the Act of Consecration HERE. Pray along with Cardinal Dolan using the prayers found HERE.

      Pope Francis has announced 2021 as the Year of St. Joseph. This year marks the 150th anniversary of the declaration of St. Joseph as the Patron of the Universal Church.

    • It has come to our attention that the names of the pastors of our three local parishes (IHM, St. Joseph's, and ICA) are being used in an email scam. We would like to officially state that Fr. Sorgie would NEVER ask for gift cards or anything of the sort through email. If you have any doubts about the veracity of an email, please call the parish office - (914) 961-3643 - and speak to a staff member before responding.

      If Fr. Sorgie were to ask for assistance, he would reach out through more personal means, such as a phone call or speaking in person. Thank you for your assistance in stopping this cyber-crime.

      The image below provides an example of where to find the information detailed underneath. It is not an actual Scam email.

      • When receiving an email of uncertain origin, look at the sender's email address (black arrow in image above) at the top of the email.
        • Our parish emails will always have an "" or "" address.
      • If you receive a scam email, please report it, within your email provider, as "phishing," "spam," or a similar type of description (blue arrow in image above) so that these thieves cannot take advantage of anyone.
        • Within Gmail, the menu to report an email can be found by clicking the vertical ellipsis (blue star in image above).
    • The 2022 Mass Book is ready and will record all Mass Intentions for the living and deceased in 2022. You may come by the office in the new Parish Center to reserve a Mass. Daily Mass Intentions which appear in the bulletin are $20 and Unannounced Mass Intentions are $15.

      Please note: At any given time, no more than five Mass intentions will be taken.

    • Parish Offices Have Moved to the New Parish Center

      The opening of our long-awaited, new Parish Center began with the move of all Parish Offices out of the Rectory. The Parish Center can be entered from the original entrance to the school building. There is a handicap ramp between the Church and School and a new sign to lead you directly to the new center.

      For all Parish business, please visit our new offices and see the center as we prepare for its complete opening.

    • Holy Mount Cemetery Will Be Periodically Closed

      Due to the construction of the New Columbarium at Holy Mount Cemetery, the cemetery will be closed periodically to allow the construction equipment to be operated safely. These periodic closures will only be temporary. For updates, please call the parish office or check here.

      Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    • Prayer for Spiritual Communion

      My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You in my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You. Amen.

    • Preghiera per la comunione spirituale

      Gesù mio, io credo che sei realmente presente nel Santissimo Sacramento. Ti amo sopra ogni cosa e ti desidero nell' anima mia. Poiché ora non posso riceverti sacramentalmente, vieni almeno spiritualmente nel mio cuore. Come già venuto, io ti abbraccio e tutto mi unisco a te. Non permettere che mi abbia mai a separare da te. Amen. 

    • Oración para la comunión espiritual

      Creo, Jesús mío, que estás realmente presente en el Santísimo Sacramento del altar. Te amo sobre todas las cosas y deseo ardientemente recibirte dentro de mi alma, pero no pudiendo hacerlo sacramentalmente, ven al menos espiritualmente a mi corazón. Quédate conmigo y no permitas que me separe de ti. Amen.

    • a Prayer from pope Francis

      "Our Lady, Health of the Sick, and St. Joseph, protect our families from COVID-19,
      especially the ill and those who are caring for the sick, the doctors, nurses, who are risking their lives"

    • A Prayer for 2020 - 5/24/20

      On the feast of Our Lady, Help of Christians on May 24, Pope Francis encouraged that we pray a special prayer this year. It is a prayer to ask for the grace to care not only for our most fragile brothers and sisters but also for the home we all share.

      Loving God,
      Creator of Heaven, Earth, and all therein contained.
      Open our minds and touch our hearts,
      so that we can be part of Creation, your gift.
      Be present to those in need in these difficult times,
      especially the poorest and most vulnerable.
      Help us to show creative solidarity
      as we confront the consequences of the global pandemic.
      Make us courageous in embracing the changes
      required to seek the common good.
      Now more than ever, may we all feel Interconnected and interdependent.
      Enable us to succeed in listening and responding
      to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor.
      May their current sufferings become the
      birth-pangs of a more fraternal and sustainable world.
      We pray through Christ our Lord,
      under the loving gaze of Mary Help of Christians,

Please remember that a cloth face covering, which covers both the nose and mouth, must be worn at all times inside church. 

    • Faith Forward - 5/21/20

      The Archdiocese of New York held a Press Conference on Thursday, May 21, 2020 to discuss preparations that are underway for the re-opening of the archdiocese’s 288 parishes upon the approval by health and state officials.

      They have prepared the following documents detailing the roadmap for re-opening the churches of the Archdiocese of New York, including current and forthcoming safety measures, liturgical accommodations, and guidelines for public participation.

      Executive Summary

      Guidelines for Sacramental Celebrations

  • Prayer to the Virgin Mary for Protection

    • O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey
      as a sign of salvation and hope.
      We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.

      At the foot of the Cross, you participated
      in Jesus’ pain, with steadfast faith.

      You, Our Lady of New York, know what we need.
      We are certain that you will provide,
      so that, as you did at Cana of Galilee,
      joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.

      Help us, Mother of Divine Love, to conform ourselves
      to the Father’s will and to do what Jesus tells us:

      He who took our sufferings upon Himself,
      and bore our sorrows to bring us,
      through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.

      We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
      Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test –
      and deliver us from every danger,
      O glorious and blessed Virgin.
