Parish Handbook


Welcome to Saint Lawrence.

As a Parish Family, we worship and work together to serve our Lord.


I echo what one of my predecessors wrote: 

“I sincerely hope that you will regard this Parish as your home away from home – a place of peace, comfort, and security but also of challenge, strength and spiritual growth. I pray that you will consider this Parish Community as an extension of your own family, and that you experience God’s love for you in the celebration of the sacraments and in other members of the community.”


There are several outreach programs such as making sandwiches for the Soup Kitchen in Middletown, Helping Hands, and many others.


I encourage you to become involved in the various activities and groups outlined in this handbook.


There is a committee, group or organization for each of you. I invite you to take advantage of what our parish has to offer and get involved.


This is a very Family-Oriented and Eucharistic-Centered Parish, and it is a privilege to serve here at Saint Lawrence, and also to be part of this family.


May God bless you!


Rev. Joseph F. De Costa
