Governor Cuomo has included his abortion expansion proposal in his current budget bill, so Catholics around the state are being encouraged to contact their NYS Senators to make sure they do not let this abortion expansion proposal pass in this budget (the State Assembly just passed the abortion expansion bill on its own this week, so the focus is on the State Senate). Please read over 1803 Abortion_Expansion_Flyer PublicPolicy for more information. You may also check out these pages of the NYS Catholic Conference website:

Process of Revising the Weekend Mass Schedule and the Need for Your Involvement
The most important work of preparing for the future is underway. Over the past several months the planning team gathered information about Mass attendance, church capacity, descriptions of each of our weekend Masses, etc. On Feb. 15th the committee identified principles to guide the selection of a new schedule; then planning team members submitted possible Mass schedules for consideration. Please plan to attend one of the upcoming parishioner meetings to give input into the options the planning team feels best serve the parishes of our area:
All the information gathered about our Masses is posted on the Auburn-N. Cayuga website: http://
auburnweedsportcatholicchurches.org/ with copies available in the parish offices. If you have any questions,
please see a member of the Planning Team.
