 Guidelines for Masses at
St. John de LaSalle Parish
beginning June 14, 2020

The obligation to attend Sunday Mass is dispensed through the end of June 2020.

The public celebration of the Holy Mass resumes Monday, June 8, 2020 and moving forward.

A face mask should be worn at Mass.

Social distancing of six feet between individuals who do not share the same household is expected.

Please take a missal from the table at the church entrance and bring it home with you after Mass so you have it for next time.

The Congregation is asked not to sing at this time to reduce the spread of the virus.

Only baskets with long handles will be used for collections, but the Mass will continue because there is no procession with gifts.

There should be no physical contact at the “Our Father” or at the Sign of Peace (a simple bow with eye contact is sufficient).

Please bring your own hand sanitizer and use it before joining the Communion procession. The Communion procession should occur as usual but communicants should have a 6 ft distance between each other.

Holy Communion will be placed in the palm of your hand only. There will be no distribution of the Precious Blood to the laity.

The Priest will not greet you, dear parishioners, entering or leaving the Church, eliminating the temptations of touching or hugging.

All persons, as defined by the Health Department, as more vulnerable, such as 65+years of age, those with underlying health conditions, fever or flu-like symptoms are encouraged to stay at home; however, attendance is at their discretion.
A weekend Mass will be available every Sunday on our Facebook (stjohndelasalle.org).  

Whenever there is a public gathering nowadays, there is a risk for anyone to contract coronavirus, so use prudence and, if concerned or fearful, please follow Holy Mass on TV or on Facebook.

During this period the Church will be open during the day. If you have someone in need of Sacrament of the Sick or Sacrament of Reconciliation  or if you have a funeral to schedule please call the office 283-2238 Ext. 308 or (716)579-4949.

Why should we schedule
a Mass Intention?

“The fervent prayer of a righteous person is very powerful”     James 5:16

The Holy Mass can be offered for the deceased and for the living. Our intention can have a character: petitions; thanksgiving; it can bind with a jubilee or anniversary. Some examples include: In thanksgiving for receiving a grace, Giving thanks or imploring for good health and God’s blessing, For a wedding anniversary, continued blessings & health, Thanksgiving for curing a serious sickness, For conversion and change of life, For health and peace in the family, For repentance and a good confession, For help in studying, for the gifts of the Holy Spirit to pass an examination, For the healthy delivery of a child, For help and blessing from the Mother of Perpetual Help to solve a difficulty. To choose a good journey of life (a right path of life), For deceased friends or members from your family.
Why do we inform you about all of this?  Is it worthy to offer for someone the intention of Holy Mass?
Prayer is the most universal gift we can give each other as Christians. Even in today’s world in which many count what is materialistic, but don’t appreciate spiritual prayer, many deep believers have experienced the unusual power of prayer. The Holy Mass is a special kind of prayer. At no other time is God so plainly tangible. By this closeness, by purity of heart and by God’s grace we can show our needs to our friends. Our Lord will know by himself the needs of our friend for whom the Holy Mass is celebrated. There exist many testimonials of the miraculous power of the Eucharist. We should take advantage of this gift which we received from our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let the words of Saint Paul bring us not only to reflection, but also to realistic and concrete action: “First of all, then, I ask that supplications, prayers, petitions, and thanksgivings be offered for everyone, for kings and for all in authority, that we may lead a quiet and tranquil life in all devotion and dignity. This is good and pleasing to God our savior, who wills everyone to be saved and to come to knowledge of the truth.” 1Tm 2:1-4
Our Mass Intention Book is open. Feel free to call or stop by the Pastoral Care Office to schedule a Mass Intention or if you have questions.

Welcome to our parish


We, the Roman Catholic community of St. John de LaSalle Parish, affirm the innate dignity and unique value of each person in our midst.  As a parish family we endeavor to work, learn and pray together as often as possible.

Our 
Faith Formation Program is intergenerational and family focused. We form disciples through worship and sacraments, prayer, service, and  scripture. 

We strive to help all those in need. It is important to us that we use our God given gifts and talents to make a difference in our community.   We welcome all persons to our parish and look forward to becoming richer in our faith because of the special gifts each member of our parish shares. We are blessed with a congregation of strong leaders, always willing to take charge of new ideas and programs. 

Our church site includes several buildings and a large parking area providing ample space for a multitude of activities, meetings, special events and parish celebrations. Our St. Charles Borromeo Parish Center is in constant use by many organizations within the city, including our Community Care Food Pantry.  The Parish Offices are in the school building, which also houses the LaSalle Early Childhood Center, and is home to our Faith Formation program, prayer groups and Bible Study.

If you are vacationing in the area, we are only ten minutes from the mighty Niagara Falls.  We would love for you to stop by to visit and are happy to show you our beautiful Church and campus facilities.
