Welcome Newcomers

Dear Friend,
Welcome to the Parish of St. John Vianney home of St. Mary’s Church Bath, NY & St. Gabriel’s Church Hammondsport, NY and welcome to our website. We hope you find this website informative.
I hope you will consider becoming an active member of St. John Vianney Parish, worshiping God with us, learning more about our Catholic faith, and sharing the love of God and with the community of Bath & Hammondsport New York. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to learn more about how we can help you on your journey of faith.
And please join us on the Lord’s Day, Sunday morning, Saturday evening, to give thanks to God for the blessings you have received. The Eucharist is the source and summit of everything we do. We hope you will join us in offering praise to God. May the Lord be close to you as you explore this site dedicated to the Mother of our Lord.
Thank you and God Bless you.
Fr. Jim Jaeger
