Twenty-fourth Sunday in Ordinary Time

In an effort to help you grow in faith as a family during the Year of the Family, we'll be sending Sunday's readings ahead of time. Check your inbox on Thursdays!
Review Sunday's readings here.

This year, parishes across the Diocese of Syracuse will celebrate catechetical ministers the weekend of September 22 & 23. The annual observance of Catechetical Sunday is a wonderful opportunity to reflect on the role that each person plays, by virtue of Baptism, in handing on the faith and being a witness to the Gospel. It is also is an opportunity for all to rededicate themselves to this mission as a community of faith. We celebrate those who share their faith with others and help form missionary disciples!
