There will be no public gatherings at Our Lady of Hope until further notice (this will, sadly, include Holy Week and Easter).

Our office will be closed to the public until further notice. 

This is our plan, so far, for how we will go on during this:

  • The church will be opened on Sundays from 10am-5pm for private prayer. Please maintain social distancing!
  • Sunday Mass will be live-streamed at 8:15am and posted to our Facebook page (
  • Daily Mass will be streamed each morning at 9am to Facebook
  • Check back on Facebook for extra devotions like the Rosary, Stations of the Cross, etc.
  • If you need to make an appointment or have your confession heard, Fr. Chris is available. 315-469-7789.
  • The grotto is open for your private prayer and quiet respite from these crazy times. Please utilize that beautiful gift!
  • Please check on your neighbors. If you or someone you know does not have access to food or medicine, please make us aware
  • We are looking at opportunities for Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament
  • We are looking at adult education opportunities
  • We are looking at a way for Fr. Chris to hear confessions at the Grotto during Holy Week

We will get through this. And, as with all crosses and adversity, there is something to be learned in the midst of it. I pray that it will grow our hunger for the Eucharist and also our hunger for community and the gathering of God’s people.

Wash your hands frequently, boost your immune system and stay healthy.

Finally, Bishop Lucia asks that we pray this novena. Please click here.
