The first Mass of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Parish in Schenectady was celebrated at 8:00 AM on Sunday, September 24, 1922. Happy 100th anniversary today to our sister parish! May God continue to bless them abundantly on the journey. Congratulations!

This weekend the Church celebrates "Catechetical Sunday." The word "catechesis" comes from the Greek word meaning "to echo the teaching." The Word of God is resounding between and among the proclaimer, the one receiving the message, and the Holy Spirit. We are all catechists for Christ.

Let us remember in prayer the souls who lost their lives twenty-one years ago today in the September 11 attack on our country. May they rest in the peace of the living God.

Since the end of June we have attempted to live stream Mass on our YouTube channel to bring the Mass in real time to our homebound viewers. We have alternated among our three churches, broadcasting within the usual Mass schedule—one week at the Saturday 4:00 PM Mass, one week at the Sunday 9:30 AM Mass, and one week at the Sunday 11:00 AM Mass. Our video team felt this would be the fairest solution for all our parishioners and viewers.
Unfortunately, technical issues are preventing us from being able to broadcast a high quality live video. We don’t have access to the internet in any of our churches. Our videographer, Diane, is able to use her iPhone Wi-Fi as the internet but there is not a strong enough signal. The video that is broadcast is of a very poor quality—the picture is grainy and the sound is distorted.
So for now, we will be filming the 4:00 PM Mass on Saturdays at St. Paul’s every weekend. This allows enough time for the video to be uploaded to YouTube and be available to view at 9:00 AM every Sunday morning. It takes several hours to upload a large 4K video to YouTube so if we were to film on Sunday mornings, Mass would not be available to watch until late Sunday afternoon or early evening. In order to have the Mass ready to view online at a consistent time each week, filming on Saturdays would be best.
The video team and I know that it is important to represent each of our parishes in our Mass videos. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to research solutions.

Happy Labor Day, everyone. In the words of St. John Paul II from his 1981 encyclical letter Laborem Exercens: "However true it may be that man is destined for work and called to it, in the first place work is 'for man' and not man 'for work'" (no. 6).
