Just a reminder that in the event of poor weather or
if you are sick and do not attend mass, please submit
your weekly envelope the following week, or send it
to the rectory, since we need to pay our bills. We
also ask you lucky snowbirds to remember that your
parish is alive and active all year round so please
don’t forget about us when you are gone. Keeping
up a weekly pattern of support will keep our parish
financially healthy. Enjoy your time away and
remember you can read our weekly bulletins at Thanks
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.
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
The Blessing of the Throats will be
on Tuesday, February 3rd at 7:30AM
Please note there will not be a mass at 6:30AM on
Sunday, February 8th. All other masses on that
Sunday will take place as regularly scheduled. The
6:30AM will resume the following Sunday,
February 15th.
This Sunday, Msgr. Janusz Urbanczyk will be at all
Masses to say goodbye to our Parishioners. His role
as First Counsellor, Permanent Observer Mission of
the Holy See to the United Nations has ended and he
has been assigned to another mission. Please be sure
to stop by and say goodbye to him.
The flowers decorating our Sanctuary
this weekend are in loving memory of
+Frank Dull from Michael Kosciuszko.
Thank you for the beautiful flowers.
Eternal rest grant to him, O’ Lord.

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
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
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.
Please pray for the sick, suffering and lonely people
in our parish, and amongst all our families and
friends, especially:
