BIBLE STUDY GROUP

Bible Study - the secret key that opens the door to faithful Christian living. What is the secret? How can I get the key? St. Paul tells us in Philippians 3:7-21 that Jesus Christ is our Creator, Savior, Sustainer, Example, Teacher, Lord, Defender and coming Judge. From Jesus comes forgiveness, comfort, strength, patience, peace, joy, self control, and faithfulness. Galations 5:22 & 23. His death paid the price for my sin and His resurrection enables me to know Him and His Father, through the power of the Holy spirit. I cannot experience this power on my own strength and righteousness but on the strength that comes through faith in Him. He is the Secret. How can we unlock the door that enables us to know Him, to love Him, to serve Him, to experience Him? The key in the scriptures! His Holy Words, His love letters to us. Reach for the key and unlock the door of your Bible and you spiritual strength. Join the Bible Study Program and continue the process of becoming whole.

To Learn the Whole Story, Study the Whole Album

Many Catholics are not able to recall the entire narrative or context of the Sunday readings,--- we need Bible study that examines the Scriptures in their biblical context. Consider this your personal invitation to begin Bible study classes. Call the Parish Office at 825-1450 for more information.

Volunteer nurses from our community had provided a free monthly blood pressure screening for any individuals wanting this service. Suggestions and recommendations about diet and needed medical attention were made and referrals are given when needed.

February 4, 2007: - Please Note:
Our monthly Blood Pressure Screening Program has been serving our parish for over 25 years. Utilizing the gifts of many volunteer registered nurses and volunteer support staff, this program has made an important contribution to the lives and health of hundreds of people in our parish.
Because so few people have been utilizing this service for the past several months, a decision was made to cancel this program, which usually takes place on the third Thursday of each month.
Our deep thanks to the volunteer registered nurses and volunteer support staff who have made this program possible for so many years.

MARRIAGE ENCOUNTER

 What is Marriage Encounter? Marriage Encounter is a Catholic expression open to all happily married couples regardless of faith, race, age, education, or financial status.

The Marriage Encounter Weekend is a positive and personal experience for a couple, which offers them a technique of loving communication that they can use for the rest of their lives. It's an opportunity to look deeply into their relationship with each other and with God. Also it's a time to share their feelings, their hopes, fears, frustrations, and joys.

Marriage Encounter is not a retreat, nor is it a marriage clinic or sensitivity course. It is not a time to look at the past, but rather to look to your future together. The weekend is a positive, simple, common sense experience between husband and wife that revitalizes marriage by helping couples to see what their relationship could and should be.

Who is Marriage Encounter for? Marriage Encounter is for any couple who wants to enrich their marriage. The weekend is designed to expand and deepen the joys a couple share together whether they've been married for a short time or for many years. Marriage Encounter is also for priests and religious who want to revitalize their relationship with the people of God and develop and even deeper appreciation for their own vocation.

MINISTRY of PRAISE

The Ministry of Praise is our Parish Powerhouse of Prayer. In this ministry, homebound members of our parish commit themselves to pray daily for the needs of our parishioners. When individuals join this group, they are officially enrolled and given a certificate, a cross and a book of prayer. Each month, members receive a letter from a member of the Parish Staff and a list of intentions submitted by our parishioners. They are asked to pray, using whatever form of prayer they like and offer their sacrifice (or suffering) each day for the intentions requested. There are no dues or meetings and no other requirements for membership in this group.
Some amazing things have happened as a result of the prayers of the members of the Ministry of Praise, and our Parish has come to rely on their prayerful support. This ministry is absolutely essential for the Church and for our parish. Call Parish Outreach at 825-0177 for more information.

PROJECT RACHEL
1-631-722-4355

Among the untold tragedies wrought by our nation's entrance of unrestricted abortion has been the toll it has taken on women and men who have been permanently scarred by their own abortion experience. Our Catholic Church has responded to this human tragedy with Project Rachel, a ministry of healing for those wounded by abortion. Here, in the Diocese of Rockville Centre, priests trained in post-abortion counseling and reconciliation, help men and women to achieve spiritual healing.

The Diocese of Rockville Centre invites you to participate in Project Rachel, a post-abortion reconciliation program.  Project Rachel is a sensitive, private and confidential experience leading to, for Catholics*, the Sacrament of Reconciliation.  You will meet with a specially trained priest who would be sensitive to your particular suffering as he listens and guides you toward the Sacrament of Reconciliation.

Also available to you as part of Project Rachel is help from specially trained counselors and psychologists.  Such counseling, before and/or after the Sacrament of Reconciliation, can help with unresolved conflicts.

Project Rachel represents a way for you to receive the healing grace of God as well as officially welcoming you back to the Church community.  It allows you, in a caring and hopeful context, to move toward reconciliation - with yourself, your unborn child, your family, your Church, and God.

 *  Non Catholics can also participate in the counseling process and be referred to a minister or Rabbi who will help you in your journey to achieve an inner healing of the abortion experience.

For more information about Project Rachel or referrals to a priest or counselor, please call:

EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS

At the Eucharistic Liturgy bread and wine, the work of human hands, are transformed into the Body and Blood of Jesus. In turn those who partake of this Eucharist in the proper spirit are transformed into that same Body. As a Minister of the Eucharist one has a special responsibility to manifest this transformation in the affairs of everyday life. This is clearly stated in the Rite of Commissioning Special Ministers of Holy Communion: “In this ministry, you must be examples of Christian living in faith and conduct; you must strive to grow in holiness through this sacrament of unity and love. Remember that, though many, we are one body because we share the one bread and one cup.”

In accepting the call to this ministry individuals commit themselves to bringing the Sacred Body and Blood of Christ to members of the community both within the gathered assembly and those who are unable to gather around the altar due to sickness, old age or some other disability.

For one to function effectively within this role a person dedicated to prayer, reflection and discernment is needed. It is important to realize that these are not "one-time-only" experiences. Rather, they are a necessity to sustain a life of generous service to God's people and one's transformation in Christ.

The Eucharistic Ministers are people who were invited by the Priests of the Parish to serve the needs of the people. Liturgically they are ministers of the Host and ministers of the Cup at the masses. They also assist at weekday masses.

The Eucharistic Ministers bring Communion to the homebound, Monica Senior Apartments, Franklin Nursing Home and Hospital, and Mercy Hospital. They also gather together to meet in prayer to support one another and their ministry. For more information call the Parish Office at 825-1450 or Parish Outreach at 825-0177.

Our Group sings at special Liturgy services and also at special occasions upon request. For information about the Folk Group, call the Parish Office at 825-1450.

LECTORS

God is present in the Eucharist not only in Christ's Body and Blood but also in the words of the Scripture since it is He who speaks to the congregation when the Holy scriptures are proclaimed in the Church. The lector's role in the Mass is second only to the priest and deacon in that the lector becomes the medium through whom God communicates with the assembly.

This places a tremendous responsibility on the lector since it requires that by voice, attitude and physical bearing one conveys the dignity and sacredness of the occasion to the congregation in such a manner that they may be led to a fuller understanding of God's word. While perfection in this mission is not expected, it must be sought.

In order to fulfill one's specific role it is essential to allow the Scriptures to permeate one's life and consciousness. This requires that the lector not only review the assigned readings but also undertake a prayerful study of all the Scriptures. A deeper knowledge, reverence and love for the Word of God will be conveyed. Therefore, when the lector studies and prepares to read at the Liturgy, he or she is not simply practicing delivery, but is conforming oneself to the Spirit who speaks through the proclamation of the Word. Call the Parish Office at 825-1450 for more information.
