The Church of Our Lady of Good Counsel is a Roman Catholic parish located in Verona, New York. Our aim is to glorify God the Most Holy Trinity in all things. We offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with great reverence, beauty, dignity and love.
Changes due to COVID-19
Temporary changes are in place as directed by Bishop Lucia. Please check the News page for the latest information.
Public masses are restricted until further notice. Bishop Lucia has dispensed the faithful from the obligation to attend Holy Mass for the time being. We will provide a live video stream on Saturdays at 4:00 PM (see details below).
Bishop Lucia reminds us that masks are to be worn at Mass out of charity for our neighbor, and so that the government will allow us to fully re-open soon.
Our temporary Mass schedule is as follows:
Holy Mass for the Week of August 2nd
Sunday, 9 August — 10:00 AM
Sunday Masses will take place in the parking lot of the Vernon Verona Sherrill High School on the corner of Route 31 and Beacon Light Road. Instructions will be provided by ushers when you arrive.
