Enjoy your time away and remember you can read our weekly bulletins at www.rc.net/rockvillecentre/olpsouthampton/ Thanks WORLD DAY FOR CONSECRATED LIFE Today we rejoice and celebrate World Day for Consecrated Life. Over the years, many men and women have chosen to live out their Baptismal vocation by professing the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience. They do this by joining a religious congregation, or some other form of consecrated life. We pray in a special way for the religious who live and serve in the Diocese of Rockville Centre, for all those in consecrated life and we ask God to bless our Church with others who will dedicate their lives to God’s service. PRESENTATION OF THE LORD Monday, February 2 nd is the Presentation of the Lord. The Blessing of the Candles will take place at the 7:30AM Mass. Please bring your own candles from last year. These candles are meant to last for a lifetime, not just one calendar year. However, if you do not have candles, you can pick up the blessed candles at our church for your family for a $5 dollar donation. FEAST OF SAINT BLAISE The Blessing of the Throats will be on Tuesday, February 3rd at 7:30AM Mass.

Page 4 FROM BISHOP MURPHY: Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ: Pope Francis has declared 2015 as the Year of Consecrated Life in the Universal Church. We give thanks and honor the women and men in consecrated life who have served and are serving here in our great Diocese of Rockville Centre. The life of this local Church has been blessed through the mission and ministry of these dedicated women and men who are responding to God’s call to each of them to follow Jesus as vowed religious. As religious, their commitment to a life of prayer, lived in community and expressed through their ministry in the Church, witnesses to their response to God’s love for them. Their vowed commitment to God and service to the Church is a gift for all of us. As we move through this Year of Consecrated Life I invite each of you to take whatever opportunities are presented to say “thanks” to the religious who are here in our Diocese, to remember them in your prayers and to pray that other generous young people respond to God’s call to join them as religious sisters, brothers and priests. I join my prayers with yours in thanksgiving for their lives of prayer and service and in petition that God will bless each of the religious who are part of our Diocese with gifts of grace, hope and peace as they witness to God’s great love. I ask Mary, Mother of the Church, to continue to inspire each of them as they live a life of “Yes” to God’s call. Faithfully yours in Christ, Bishop of Rockville Centre FLU SEASON During the flu season, please follow these guidelines if you have a cold or are fearful of being infected: • Refrain from drinking from the cup and receive Communion in the hand while sick • At the sign of peace, offer a simple bow of the head to those around rather than a handshake • If a Catholic person is sick, there is no obligation to attend Mass. Personal prayer and reflection on the scriptures is encouraged as well as viewing the Mass on television. PRAY FOR THE SICK Please pray for the sick, suffering and lonely people in our parish, and amongst all our families and friends, especially: Zofia Mrozik Stanislawa Siegert Janina Soltys Robert Casse Henry Jozefa Gaworska Emily Kolenda Patricia Kahl Richard Vinski John Hagen (little boy) Bob Cerf John Lenon Sister Virginia Jerry Connolly Bogdan Ciorun Randall Feinberg Agnes Bautisa Stacia Michaels Barbara Siebida Paulina Kwiatkowska Geraldine Connolly Samantha Kinney Sam Price Elizabeth Dobrzycka-Grela Joanne Pierson John Gorman Eileen Connolly Irene Sikorski Kevin Guidera Frank Kandula Eugene Raffel Erika Dehler PRAY FOR THE DECEASED Please pray for the repose of the soul of : +Sophia Isaacs Eternal rest grant to her, O’ Lord.
