Reverent, traditional, inviting and full of ministries; guided by the Augustinians we offer a beautiful backdrop for all of the sacraments to be received. Residing on a tree covered, and quiet avenue in the Lansingburgh Community of Troy, N.Y. we are a heritage parish that invites you to attend Mass with us. We welcome you.
DEVOTION TO THE PRECIOUS BLOOD
“Lord Jesus, our Savior, let us now come to You.
Our hearts are cold; Lord, warm them with Your selfless Love.
Our hearts are sinful; Lord, cleanse them with Your precious Blood.
Our hearts are weak; Lord, strengthen them with Your joyous Spirit.
Our hearts are empty; Lord, fill them with your Divine Presence.
Lord Jesus, our hearts are Yours; possess them always and only for Yourself. Amen.”
Recognize in this bread what hung on the cross, and in this chalice what flowed from His side… whatever was in many and varied ways announced beforehand in the sacrifices of the Old Testament pertains to this one sacrifice which is revealed in the New Testament.”
St. Augustine (Sermon 3, 2; circa A.D. 410, original translation)
