11/27/22 - Jesus Tells Us to Be Ready - Cycle A

Dear Families,

 

This Sunday is Advent, the first day of our new Liturgical Year.  During Advent we remember Jesus’ first coming but we also need to think about Jesus’ second coming.  The message from this Sunday’s Gospel is get ready.  Jesus is coming again.  No one knows when Jesus will come again.  Advent gives us the opportunity to change and to live each day as we would want to live if we knew that Jesus would return that day.  Let us all remember that this world and this life are only temporary.  We have something greater to look forward to, being with Jesus in Heaven.

 

During this Advent season let us prepare each day for the day of Jesus’ second coming by listening to his words, and understanding his message of hope, love, joy and peace.

 

As a family watch video in its entirety and then ask each other these questions.

What are some ways your family gets ready for Christmas?  In what way does your family get ready for Jesus’ second coming?

 

Family Prayer:  God, help us to make room in our home and our hearts to welcome Jesus.  Amen.

November 27, 2022- First Sunday of Advent

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

   As I am writing this article today, it is a week before Thanksgiving, but in times when holiday happens in the middle of the week, the bulletin has to be sent in a week before. So, I'm writing before Thanksgiving for after Thanksgiving, which is going to be the first Sunday of Advent.

   After the Feast of Christ the King of the Universe, what better feast could we have than Thanksgiving, celebrating brotherhood among all people of America. We express our gratitude to God for all the blessings, that we have received from his goodness. Gratitude, is a very important virtue, and it is a beginning of happiness, when we recognize our being blessed. Appreciation of the blessings makes us aware of being loved, being gifted, and that is something that we all want. But to experience gratitude, we need to have the capacity to recognize being blessed. Sensation of gratitude welling up in one’s heart, becomes a wellspring of happiness. Happiness and positiveness gives us energy and helps us succeed in our dealings with others, it affirms us in who we are and what we do.

11/27/22 - Primer Domingo de Adviento                        

 

Queridas Hermanas y Hermanos,

   Mientras escribo este artículo hoy, es una semana antes del Día de Acción de Gracias, pero en momentos en que las vacaciones ocurren a mitad de semana, el boletín debe enviarse una semana antes. Entonces, estoy escribiendo antes del Día de Acción de Gracias para después del Día de Acción de Gracias, que será el primer domingo de Adviento.

   Después de la Fiesta de Cristo Rey del Universo, qué mejor fiesta podríamos tener que la de Acción de    Gracias, celebrando la hermandad entre todos los pueblos de América. Expresamos nuestra gratitud a Dios por todas las bendiciones que hemos recibido de su bondad. La gratitud, es una virtud muy importante, y es un comienzo de felicidad, cuando nos reconocemos bienaventurados. La apreciación de las bendiciones nos hace conscientes de ser amados, de ser dotados, y eso es algo que todos queremos. Pero para experimentar gratitud, necesitamos tener la capacidad de reconocer ser bendecidos. La sensación de gratitud que brota del corazón se convierte en un manantial de felicidad. La felicidad y la positividad nos dan energía y nos   ayudan a tener éxito en nuestro   trato con los demás, nos afirma en quiénes somos y en lo que hacemos.

Background Screening Update

The Office for the Protection of Children and Young People:

The Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People (The Charter) promulgated by the Bishops of the United States in 2002 outlines specific practices and guidelines providing standards of safety in parishes and dioceses throughout the United States. As directed in The Charter, the Diocese of Rockville Centre requires all employees, clergy, and volunteers to complete three requirements within thirty days of employment or volunteering:

  1. Attend Protecting God’s Children Program (Virtus)
  2. Sign the Codes of Conduct;
  3. Complete a background screen application. The Diocese requires all those who remain in active ministry be rescreened at 5 yr. intervals. volunteers/employees.

 

The 'Equality Act' discriminates against people of faith and threatens unborn life.

Tell Congress you oppose it!
 
Everyone deserves to be treated with respect and dignity. The so-called Equality Act, which is being voted on in the U.S. House of Representatives soon, in many ways does the opposite and needs to be opposed. Instead of respecting differences in beliefs about marriage and sexuality, the Equality Act would discriminate against people of faith. 
 
The Equality Act would: punish faith-based organizations, such as charities and schools who serve everyone in their communities, simply because of their beliefs; force girls and women to compete against boys and men for limited opportunities in sports, and to share locker rooms and shower spaces with biological males who identify as women; risk mandating taxpayers to fund abortions; force people in everyday life, and especially health care workers, to support gender transition; and expand what the government considers a “public” place, forcing even some parish halls to host functions that conflict with Catholic beliefs.
