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
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

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

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
