Dear Friends in Christ,
We are praying for you!
The COVID-19 pandemic has created unprecedented and challenging times in our world. Now, more than ever, be assured, we continue to hold you and your loved ones, as well as all of our brothers and sisters throughout the world, in prayer during these frightening days.
Even in our darkest hours, our Lord is there for us. May we continue to turn to Him in these times of great need and find comfort in His presence.
As we are complying with the New York State mandate to have our Friars remain at home in the Friary and our dedicated employees work remotely from their homes, we are doing our best to continue to be available for our dear benefactors, retreatants and other friends. You can reach us through this website and limited telephone access. It may take us a little longer than usual to respond to your messages and requests for religious items, but we are doing our best to continue to be available for you.
To share with you during our quarantine, on this website, you will find a Virtual Mass video, various audio prayers and links to listen to hours of re-released Ave Maria Hour radio dramas of bible stories and the lives of saints. You can also follow us on Facebook.
Our Holy Father, Pope Francis has placed the world under the protection of the Blessed Mother in this time of crisis. Please join us in praying for all of God’s children in our world-wide family as we ask our Lord Jesus Christ and Our Lady of the Atonement to watch over and protect us!
You are in our prayers,
Franciscan Friars of the Atonement
