OUR LITURGY

Today we hear the prophetic words of Hosea about what

God desires. In turn, Jesus also quotes this prophet. Both

readings affirm how we must focus our discipleship on

deeds of compassion, service, and kindness, not on

religious acts done for show. It is not what we do in

church that primarily reveals discipleship, but what we do

outside of it.

need it most-at the beginning of life, helping families

feel comfortable at the Baptism Ceremony; and at

the end of life, helping families prepare the funeral

liturgy for a loved one and helping the parish clergy

do a good job in ministering to the families. Please

consider helping your parish family in these, much

needed services-thanks!

Next Saturday, June 11th at 10:30 AM, we will

celebrate an Anointing of the Sick Mass and next

Monday June 13th at 7:30 PM, we will celebrate a

very special Mass in honor of St. Anthony of Paduawith

the blessing of St. Anthony’s Bread.

On Monday June 27th, the 6th Annual St.

Joseph’s School Golf Outing will take place at the

Timber Point Country Club. Golfers arrive at

12 Noon for BBQ Lunch and Shotgun Start is 1:30

PM. You can come for the Golf and Dinner or just

for the great dinner. See details further on in the

bulletin. There will also be raffles give a ways and a

chance for a 5-Day Cruise. Come out and have a

good time with your fellow parish family members

and help support our beautiful school. All of the

proceeds from this event go to help support the

running of the school.

It’s SUMMER FAMILY FESTIVAL TIME FROM

JULY 20-24. Come on out to celebrate with your

parish family and friends and enjoy the rides,

games, delicious food, limited raffle, basket raffle,

and 50/50 every night. We have lowered the price

on the limited raffle tickets from $25 to $20 in hopes

that this will make the raffle more attractive to people

and increase sales. Remember both the Summer

Festival and the Backwards Raffle are two of the

major fun and fundraisers of the year and we need

the support and help of all the members of the

parish. The proceeds from these events go a long

way in keeping the parish running and in the

BLACK. So, come out and enjoy the festival come

early and come often! We also need people to

share with us their time and their talents in order to

make it work-we can use all the help we can getthanks!

We close with some Faith Sharing Questions:

1.) Jesus says, “Follow me.” How are you

following Christ? How is following Christ

affecting your life?

2.) Hosea rails against empty worship. What are

some of the ways that we, as a community, can

keep our worship from being “empty”?

3.) St. Paul speaks of Abraham “hoping against

hope.” Who or what has helped strengthen

your faith and given you hope?

God bless you always

The Pharisees are upset with Jesus because He

has the nerve to eat with sinners and tax collectors.

How dare He, doesn’t He know who and what kind of

people they are? Of course He does, in fact this is

the whole reason why He invites Himself to dinner

with them. Remember in Jesus’ day and even today,

when you share a meal/table with someone you are

identifying with them, and you become one with them!

So, now that Jesus is eating with sinners and tax

collectors He is becoming one of them-at least in the

minds of the Pharisees. How can Jesus do this and

still claim to be sent by God? Jesus is speaking out of

both sides of His mouth-isn’t He? Well yes, if you

look at this situation, the way the Pharisees do, but

no, if you look at it the way Jesus is looking at it. Yes,

Jesus is hoping that there will be a case of identity

and oneness, but not that He becomes a sinner,

rather that sinners and tax collectors identify with Him

and the one who sent Him. What Jesus is saying is,

yes, be one with me and turn your back on your

old ways and become brand new again in the love

and forgiveness of the Father given to you

through the Son. Jesus knows that His dinner

companions are sick, sick because of sin and its

darkness and lifelessness, and that He is the

physician who came to cure them. In short, Jesus

came to cure us, but He can only do it, if we do as

Mathew did in today’s Gospel and follow His call.

Jesus is also calling us not to follow the example

of the Pharisees, and judge people purely by human

standards or forget that in reality we too are not

perfect! Jesus is calling us to be like Him and look

beyond the sin, and forgive the sinner and help him or

her to come to a better life. If we wish to receive the

mercy and forgiveness of God, we must likewise

extend mercy and forgiveness to those who have

been injured by sin. This also includes

those who injure and hurt us!

Many times, we are asked to pray for an increase

of vocations for the Priesthood, Diaconate, or

Religious Life. We are happy to announce that 2

members of our parish family have been accepted by

the Diocese to study for the Diaconate-they are Mr.

Frank Dell’Aglio and Mr. William Dobbins.

Congratulations to Frank, his wife Kathryn, Bill and

his wife Blanca, and their families. Please keep them

in your prayers and continue to pray for an increase of

vocations. Remember, fostering vocations is the job of

every Catholic.

We are also in need of volunteers to serve the

parish family as members of our Ministry of

Consolation and in our Baptism Greeters Ministry.

Both wonderful ministries help families when they

RESPECT LIFE

At a time when there is much debate in the

political and medical world over human embryonic

stem cell research, Stembanc, an umbilical stem cell

preservation facility, is a company enabling the most

modern technology to save lives.

Under the motto, “Dedicated to the

preservation of life”, Mr. Archibald

Grabinski, the president of this company

states Stembanc’s mission: to

communicate the benefits of saving cord

stem cells to expectant families, and to

provide this service with the greatest technical, legal

and ethical integrity. As he says, “we believe all

families expecting newborn children deserve to be

more fully informed regarding the importance of

saving their child’s cord blood stem cells for their

family’s future use.”

Newborn, or umbilical cord blood stem cells have

already been used in the treatment of over forty

different diseases and have resulted in many lives

being saved. These cells are obtained using a

completely safe and painless procedure following

childbirth. After the umbilical cord is clamped and

cut, and no longer attached to the child, the

obstetrician drains the cells that remain in the

umbilical cord and placenta into a collection kit.

These “privileged” (unexposed to disease) stem cells

have demonstrated the capability of generating nonblood

tissues. They have the potential of providing a

future source of cells which, when saved, will

benefit the child throughout his lifetime, an

invaluable gift. And additionally, these cells are of

potentially immediate benefit to close family

members, such as siblings or parents. For

information about Stembanc, call 1-877-836-2262

(1-87-STEMBANC) or Visit www.stembanc.com.

Religious Retirement Fund

This weekend June 4 & 5 is the annual collection for the Religious Retirement Fund.

Religious Sisters and Brothers who have been involved in education, health care and social ministry in

the Diocese of Rockville Centre need our help. The stipends being earned by young members of

Religious Communities are no longer enough to support the needs of the elderly members of their

Communities. The number of religious in assisted living or nursing facilities continues to rise and

health care costs are rising too.

For this reason, the Diocese of Rockville Centre, for the past twenty years has committed to return to our

Religious Communities a portion of our gifts of treasure, in appreciation for the many years of service to the

people of our Diocese of these dedicated servants of Our Lord.

Please come prepared next week to assist the elderly Religious with a once a year gift, as generous as

your means will allow. These gifts will be distributed among the thirty-one communities who serve our

Diocese.

Your gift may be placed in the mail or dropped in the collection basket. On behalf of the Religious

who serve in our parishes and hospitals, thank you for your generosity.

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!!!
