Amazing Parish Prayer
Heavenly Father,
You have gathered us together as a parish to be Your
visible life in our world. Here we unite in worship,
proclaim Your word, celebrate the Eucharist, and are
sent forth to share Your love and make disciples.
Lord, we take your Great Commission seriously and
long for our parish to be so on-fire that we draw
people to You. Help us in that endeavor, as we strive
to work together – ordained, religious and laity.
Please make our parish amazing, through
Your power and Your grace.
Pilgrimage to Rome in October 2016!
We are in the planning stages for a pilgrimage to Rome in
October 2016. The eleven day trip will include airfare, hotel,
guides and luxury tour busses as well as some meals. The tour
will start in Rome, include a Papal audience, then on to Assisi,
Siena, Florence, Pavia, Milan, Padua and conclude in Venice. The
approximate cost for the trip, based on double occupancy, will be
$4,000.00 per person. Please keep in mind, that once we know
how many people we have going we will be able to provide an
exact cost. Before we proceed any further we would like to get
an idea if there is any interest in this group pilgrimage. If you
think you are interested, please e-mail Cyndi Fellin at
[email protected] .
By replying to this email, there is no commitment on your part.
Once we know how many people are
interested, we will contact everyone
for an informational meeting. The trip
is open to parishioners and non-parishioners.

Choose Life Committee
Four points of action recommended in
response to Planned Parenthood
Posted 2 weeks ago by The Long Island Catholic Staff
The week-long controversy in the media about Planned
Parenthood’s apparent practice of harvesting organs and
parts of a child’s body for sale during late term abortions
should not end with a shrug of the shoulders and business
as usual. The tragic reality of abortion on demand in our
nation is a black mark on us as a society and an evil that
can never be overlooked. Now this practice of the taking of
innocent life in the womb is being compounded by the largest abortion provider in our nation by a practice that should
horrify us all, even the abortion providers themselves.
The women on the tapes who described the procedures of
late term abortion and suggested “better ways” might be
found to kill the child so that “more organs can be harvested for sale” brings them and us to a new low in a society
already become coarse in its difference to abortion, euthanasia and teenage suicide, not to mention the senseless
killings that have been increasing in frequency across our
I would suggest that four things need to be done.
First, the U.S. government should be called upon to stop
financing Planned Parenthood with taxpayers dollars, some
$500 million according to one source.
Second, Planned Parenthood should “come clean,” admit
they were wrong, ask for an outside audit and, without our
accepting what they do for a living, promise us and our society that they will cease this practice of making money
from acts that compound the horrific evil of abortion itself.
Third, every citizen, and especially we who are Catholics,
should demand of every candidate for public office that he
or she take a public stand on whether or not they support or
oppose Planned Parenthood’s heinous and cynical profit
making from the tragedy of aborted children.
Fourth, we must pray daily for an end to the tragic scourge
that is abortion, the killing of the innocent, the harm done to
women and the shame of our society.
Posted in Bishop's Blog
St. Vincent de Paul Society
In today’s Gospel, Jesus asks “Do you
also want to leave?” We must ask ourselves if we really want to hear the good
news of his love for us and for others. Is
the word of God able to break into our
consciousness, change us and call us to
hear the cries of the poor?
As you give your gift to the poor through the
Society of St. Vincent de Paul, in your heart
you also will find the good news of God’s love.

Attention All High School Grads, Parents and Grandparents
Our Teens are becoming Young Adults—starting college with a lifetime of opportunities
in front of them. There will be many choices that they will make during the next 4 years,
let’s help them to stay connected to their faith while they are making those choices!
Let’s help our young people keep a faith connection while they are in college. Many
will be away from home and out on their own, what better way to help them stay
grounded and give them a safe place to meet new friends than through their
University’s Newman Center.
Newman Centers are Catholic ministry centers at non-Catholic
universities throughout the country. These Centers provide pastoral
services and ministries to their Catholic student population. Through the Newman
students are connected to their Campus Minister and invited to join Catholic Campus
Ministry—this becomes their faith community away from home!
It’s simple to make that connection—the only information that is required is the
student’s first and last name and the name of the college or university they will be
attending in September.
Then send this information to Marianne Sheridan, Director for Youth Ministry at
[email protected] This information will be forwarded to the proper Newman Center
and your teen will be welcomed in the fall when they arrive at their school.
Let’s keep our Young Church connected and committed to their faith!
