Requested by

Mrs Phyllis Dinatale

OUR LITURGY

Wisdom calls us to acknowledge God as the source of

justice and mercy toward believers. Paul teaches us that

when we do not know how to pray, the Holy Spirit

intercedes for us. The parable of the wheat and the weeds

makes clear the power of God’s justice. Those who are

good will be saved, while the wicked will be destroyed.

living. They are also a wonderful way to help support the

parish Restoration/Rebuilding Fund. Each new brick

donated will be placed with the other bricks already

located at the Church’s Main Entrance. The donation for

each memorial brick is $1,800 and your pledge can be

fulfilled in many different ways even over the course of

several years. While that seems high, please remember

your life-giving donation will go a long way in helping us

carry out the repair projects that were not able to be done

during the last restoration campaign, and to maintain a

fund, which will make future repairs and maintenance

easier to accomplish.

If the Memorial Brick is not possible for you, there is

also the Memorial Leaves for the Tree of Life or you can

donate to the Restoration Fund in any amount you wish.

Any amount helps us maintain our beautiful parish

grounds. As you know the funds that were collected by

Msgr. Midura, all went to accomplish the plan he laid out

to the parish when he arrived. The only project that could

not be completed was the convent. The funds collected

for this building were used to fix the emergency repair of

the heating system in the Rectory that went back to the

time when Fr. Carew built the Church and the Rectory

almost 40 years ago. Not only must the Convent be

repaired we must replace the Religious Education Officethe

original plan was to move Religious Ed into the

Convent, but that may change depending on the actual

state of the old Convent. While the remaining pledges

from Msgr.’s time are going to the restoration fund, it will

not be enough to finish the work. Hopefully we can all

pull together to get the job done, thanks.

God bless you for all you do for Saint Joseph’s

We again see Jesus speaking to us in parables and

likewise explaining to the disciples, and us, their meaning.

This parable The Weeds amongst the Wheat deals with the

coming of the age (the end of the world). We are told by

Jesus to pay special attention to The Last Judgment, when

the just will be judged side by side with the who have not

chosen life or love. As we see in this parable, the weeds

have been mixed in with the wheat by the work of some

enemy, but the farmer refuses to remove the weeds because

the good wheat could also be removed. But there is the

worry that the weeds will choke off the wheat-so the farmer

looks to the harvest with some fear, but also with hope!

Hopefully we are the wheat, but unfortunately,

we live in a world filled with weeds. Weeds that

take form in so many ways-like things or people

that can distract us from the true path to God, or

ideas and current world opinions that can confuse

us in following the Gospel.

This Parable in a sense warns us to be strong, for so

many times in our lives or in the lives of people we know,

we encounter these weeds, and we must ask God to give us

the strength not to be choked by them. To fight them off,

we must accept the Kingdom like yeast that a woman took

and mixed with 3 measures of flour. Once the yeast does

its work, the dough grows and becomes larger and larger.

When the Kingdom does its work, in us-through, the power

of The Holy Spirit- we become more and more like Jesus

and the Kingdom grows through our actions. When we

grow in the ways of the Kingdom then we shall be the

wheat that survives the weeds. And when the Harvest

Master comes, we will not share the same fate as the weeds.

This week our 10th Annual Summer Family Festival

begins on Wednesday at 7PM, and we thank all who

volunteered to help, our sponsors, and all who donated

goods and services to make the Festival a great success.

Again, one special way to thank our sponsors is to

patronize their businesses-what a great way to reward them

for their generosity.

Please join us for Monday Evenings of Prayer on the

Rectory Lawn during the month of August at 7 PM.

Bring your Rosaries, your lawn chair, and a tasty treat to

share with your parish family. Also on Monday August

8th from 3:30-9 PM we will hold our Annual Blood Drive

in Carew Hall, if you can give this much-needed gift of life

please do so. Remember during the summer months there

is a great shortage of blood-so every pint counts.

Perhaps you have seen the MEMORIAL BRICKS

located on the table in the church lobby, we apologize

because we have not provided enough information about

them. These memorial bricks are a great way to remember

a loved one who has gone on or to commemorate the

RESPECT LIFE

Pro-life items you may have missed…

Congress recently (2004) passed legislation

stipulating that state and local governments

can’t coerce hospitals, insurers and other

health care groups into performing or

supporting abortions. This legislation will

deny federal funds to any federal agency,

state or local government that discriminates against a health

care entity because it does not provide, pay for or support

abortions. The provision also expands a federal law

specifying that a doctor can opt out of abortion training. The

law was crafted by Representatives Henry Hyde (R-Ill) and

Dave Weldon (R-Fla) and was included in a $388 billion

spending bill. The Washington Times

Umbilical cord blood is a plentiful, rich source of

stem cells that are genetically unique to each child and

family. They are the building blocks of the immune system

and already have been used in the treatment of over forty

different diseases, including many cancers. Unlike the

harvesting of human embryonic stem cells, which kills a

human being, the saving of cord blood stem cells is entirely

moral. Arrangements for the saving of the cord blood must

be made before the birth of the child. Such saved stem cells

have the potential to treat not only the child from whose

umbilical cord the blood was taken, but also parents and

siblings. Celebrate Life, Nov/Dec 2004

Pro-lifers cheered the announcement that Gloria

Feldt has resigned as president of Planned Parenthood

Federation of America, the nation’s largest abortion

provider. During her eight years, Feldt “presided over more

abortions (1,370,000) than any other PP president, and we

are happy to see her go,” said Jim Sedlak, executive director

of American Life League’s STOPP International.

CNSNews.com Celebrate Life, Mar 2005

Here’s something brand new …

If you feel called to assist the worthwhile effort of

offering those about to abort their child one final chance

to CHOOSE LIFE, please help to expand the pro-life

presence at 200 Motor Pkwy. (West of L.I.E. exit 55 – the

second building east of Adams Avenue.)

Please consider joining the Respect Life group from Our

Lady of the Snow when they witness at that location on

each first Saturday from 10:30 AM to Noon. Persons

wishing to attend on Saturday, August 6th are asked to

call Marie Mawn of St. Joseph Respect Life Committee

“Pennies From Heaven”

Help raise money for the WALK FM KIDS CAMPAIGN

Give all of your pennies that you have been saving to a worthwhile cause.

As we begin the summer thinking of the beach, pool parties and barbeques, we

need to remember those children who are less fortunate. Our children look

forward to summer vacation, but children less fortunate look forward to school

starting again so that they will have a place to go, friends to play with and healthy

food to eat. Please, give those pennies or other spare change to a most needed

cause. 100% of your donations will go directly to the WALK FM KIDS

CAMPAIGN.

THANK YOU !!

Your pennies will be collected in the lobby of the church as you leave Mass.

Please Help

Evan McAteer ‘s (a kindergarten student at St Joseph’s) aunt, Allison McAteer, is very sick. She is an

elementary Teacher Assistant and not married. Unfortunately, she also has no medical insurance coverage.

Financially she just makes ends meet. She has two neurological disorders, Syringomyelia and Chiari

Malformation.

Surgery is necessary to treat this condition. The procedure involves removing a piece of the skull in the back

of the head near the bottom (craniectomy). Having to go through this ordeal is difficult enough but the

financial burden that it is creating is almost too much to bear.

Evan’s family is trying to raise funds to help defray some of her medical expenses. They would appreciate any

donation which will go toward the cost of her medical care. They are very concerned and hope that you will

keep her and the family in your prayers. Any donations should be made directly to Katherine Yamaguchi

(her sister in law) and dropped off either at the church or rectory.

You may also mail it directly to Katherine Yamaguchi at 38 West Court Drive, Centereach, NY 11720

Sincerely,

The McAteer Family

Even Used Inkjet Cartridges,

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

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!!!
