OUR LITURGY

Isaiah tells of the suffering servant who faithfully endures

persecution although he is innocent. Paul describes the self

giving love of Jesus as He empties Himself in obedience to

His Father. Each scene in the passion narrative shows us a

glimpse of the sacrificial love the Savior has for us. His love

overcame even denial and infidelity.

FROM THE DESK OF FR. MIKE

“Hosanna to the Son of David, blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord; Hosanna in the

highest.” Jesus enters into Jerusalem on this Palm Sunday of The Lord’s Passion, as today, and this

Friday, we remember the last days of Jesus’ Earthly life. We will share in His Agony in The

Garden, being betrayed by one of His own, and the trials before the Sanhedrin and Pilate. We will

remember and even take the part of the crowd who calls out not to free the innocent carpenter from

Nazareth, but for the criminal Barabbas. We will also kneel before the Cross of Jesus (the Tree of

Life) and contemplate all He has done for us, and we will leave the Church in profound sorrow.

Yet, we will not leave in despair or hopelessness like the crowd who witnessed these events

2000 years ago. For we know that we will return next Sunday not only shouting hosannas, but also

that Jesus Christ has Risen Today! This is the Holiest Week of the Church’s year, and it is made so,

by what and how we remember. In this week, we will recall Holy Thursday and the sacraments of

Eucharist and Priesthood. We will remember His 7 Last Words, and in the Liturgy of His Passion

on Good Friday, we will remember His saving death.

Holy Saturday will find us blessing the new fire and the new water. We will celebrate with those

who are coming into the Church through the RCIA and remember our own Baptism. We will

celebrate the triumph over death and darkness. Our Lenten journey will come to an end, but our

Easter journey will be just beginning and we will be sanctified anew, and then we will shout from

the rooftops (oh, we will have to wait till next week, sorry)….

Please consult the bulletin for the schedule of services and the Sacrament of Reconciliation

during this week. Please remember that we have added two Masses on Easter Sunday that will be

celebrated in Carew Hall. The times of these masses are: 11AM & 12:30 PM. Also, please keep in

mind that the Easter Collection is one of the most important collections taken up in the course of the

year. Through your great generosity, the parish will be able to do much in serving the Gospel and

our brothers and sisters in Christ. Please be as generous as your means will allow.

Do all that you can, and allow God to do all that He can for you during this most holy of weeks.

Let us pray; Almighty Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, you sent your

Son to be born of woman and to die on a cross, so that through the

obedience of one man, estrangement might be dissolved for all. Guide

our minds by His truth and strengthen our lives by the example of His

death that we may live in union with you in the kingdom of your

promise. Grant this through Christ our Lord. Amen

Fr. Mike

China is Reversing Its Policy ….....Just days after the

Chinese government announced plans to provide

financial incentives to families who have newborn girls,

officials with East China’s Zhejiang province have

announced that it will strictly enforce a ban on all

abortions done to control the gender of the baby.

China’s one child population control program of forced

abortions and sterilizations has caused an epidemic of

families seeking to give birth to a baby boy. Faced with a

future where the predominately male population will

have few females to marry and sensing that this

dangerous trend needs to be reversed, national

government officials are instituting a new program

PAYING couples to have female babies! Families with

girls will be offered free schooling and better housing.

They will also be given preferential treatment in welfare

allowances and employment. This is good news.

In the remote southwestern area

of the Dominican Republic,

there are two Catholic parishes

staffed by volunteers from the

Diocese of Rockville Centre.

The first is San Pedro Apostol

in El Cercado and the second is

Nuestra Señora de Fatima in

Hondo Valle.

In 1979, following a request for

assistance from the late Bishop

Ronald Connors San Juan de la

Maguaña in the Dominican

Republic, leaders from the

Diocese of Rockville Centre

traveled there. Our diocesan

officials witnessed first-hand

that these parishes were in dire

need as the people were

starving and had little chance of

improving their situation.

Because our leadership felt it

was important to share our

resources with the poorest of

the poor, volunteers from our

diocese were asked to help, and

so our formal commitment to

these two parishes began.

Today, 25 years later, we

remain committed to assisting

the people of this struggling

area. Currently, Msgr. John

Cervini and Sisters of St.

Joseph Jane Reilly and Babs

Barry of our diocese are

voluntarily serving full-time

there at the parishes and at a

hospital hospitality house in

Santo Domingo. Their service

in helping the impoverished

people of this land is an

example for all of us to follow,

and one which we recognize

with profound gratitude.

Our main objective has been to

improve the quality of life for

the people of this area. Every

year, different groups from our

diocese also sponsor trips to the

two parishes. Lay and ordained

volunteers deliver food,

medicine and necessary

supplies. Our volunteers also

visit the poor, help with

Baptisms and provide necessary

assistance to the needy

residents. Frequently upon

returning from the journey, our

volunteers will share their

experiences with other

parishioners, which often

prompts other professionals to

travel to the Dominican

Republic and offer their

services free of charge.

Your gift to the Catholic

Ministries Appeal helps fund

this mission project of our

diocese and enables this most

important work to continue. We

help with such endeavors

because we, as Catholics, are

called upon to support the

universal Church, especially

those who are unable to help

themselves.

Even Used Inkjet Cartridges,

Have Their Uses

We have found a way to help St Joseph and keep those

complicated pieces of plastic, metal and printed circuit

boards out of the land fill. Drop them off (in a plastic

baggie) when you come to mass. We will send them to a

company who reuses them and gives the parish a bounty for

each. One note, to clear confusion, if it is larger than a fist,

it is not an inkjet cartridge!!!
