Dear Parents,

In this Sunday’s Gospel Jesus tells us He is the vine and we are the branches.  He explains that we can only grow in faith and do the right things if we stay close to Him.  Jesus will correct and guide us, just as a gardener prunes and tends a garden so it will grow strong.

Jesus calls us to grow good fruit with our lives.  We grow fruits of love, kindness, patience, and goodness when we stay connected to Jesus.  We do this by listening to Jesus’ teachings, following his example, and praying.

As a family, watch video in its entirety and ask each other this question:

How can you stay connected to Jesus, like branches are connected to a vine?

Family Prayer:  Jesus, help us to find ways to stay close to you so we can grow in faith and love.  Amen

May 2, 2021 -  Fifth Sunday of Easter

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

     “Calendar spring” started in March, but the change to warmer weather is perceived now with the visible signs of spring flowers, trees blooming, and grass starting to grow. We could say it is all fruit of the Resurrection of Jesus, that brings new life to every aspect of our lives. An Easter lily, is one of the symbols of the resurrection, dressed in a “white cloth” as was Christ in the tomb. It is a beautiful feeling to perceive spring as a sign of resurrection, the newness of life coming from the darkness of the soil as if it was a tomb. There is a beauty in the newness of life, and Christ makes it eternal, unending. By faith in Christ we acquire rights to that eternal spring. Like that grain of wheat from the parable, that sown to the ground is lost to itself, but it comes back to life in multiple seeds with great fruitfulness and infinite perspective of becoming countless.

5/2/2021 - Quinto Domingo de Pascua.

Queridas Hermanas y Hermanos,

   El calendario de primavera comenzó en Marzo, pero el cambio a un clima mas calido se percibe ahora con los signos visible de flores primaverales, arboles en flor y el césped que comienza a crecer. Podriamos decir que todo es fruto de la Resurrección de Jesus, que trae nueva vida a todos los aspectos de nuestra vida. Un lirio Pascual, es uno de los símbolos de la de la resurrección, vestido con un “paño blanco” como estaba Cristo en la tumba. Es un sentimiento hermoso percibir la primavera como un signo de resurrección, la novedad de la vida proveniente de las tinieblas del suelo como si fuera una tumba. Hay una belleza en la novedad de la vida, y Cristo la hace eterna, interminable. Por la fe en Cristo adquirimos derechos a esa eterna primavera. Como ese grano de trigo de la parábola, ese grano aserrado se pierde por si mismo, pero vuelve a la vida en multiples semillas con gran fecundidad y una perspectiva infinita de convertirse en incontable.

The Office for the Protection of Children and Young People:

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.
