No arrangements were made
for this week. If you would
like to have your loved one
remembered in this way
please contact the rectory.
While the prophet Ezekiel emphasizes the serious
obligations of the law to correct one’s neighbor, Paul
gives us insights on how to proceed with love. In today’s
Gospel, Jesus speaks of gently correcting one another so
that the community may be in harmony. Jesus promises to
remain with those who gather in His name.
those who are attending daily Mass to be careful driving
around the parish grounds. Starting this Tuesday
September 6, 2005 we will go back to Mass at 8:45AM.
This will be our Tuesday Morning Schedule until the
end of June when school closes. Even when the school
is closed, we will still have Mass at 8:45 AM, this way
there will not be any confusion.
Next Sunday, September 11, 2005 we will have a
Special Memorial Mass for the Victims and Families of
the events of September 11, 2001. During this Mass, we
will also pray for peace in our world, forgiveness and an
end to all acts of terror- Mass will be celebrated at 3PM.
Remember we will have our usual schedule of Sunday
Masses on that day and the Victims of 9/11 are one of the
intentions at all of our Masses, but the 3 PM Mass will be
just for 9/11.
Also, on the weekend of September 10 & 11, we will
begin the sale of our Backwards Raffle Tickets.
Remember there will only be 500 tickets sold each for
$100. But this gives you a chance to win the grand prize
of $10,000 and many other cash prizes. This a major
fundraiser for the parish and it goes along way to support
the parish. When we sell all 500 tickets we make over
$30,000, and remember you can split the ticket 2 ways, or
5 ways, or 10 or 20 ways. So, many people look forward
to this raffle and we have one group of 5 friends who go
in on one ticket every year-so how about you? The grand
drawing will take place in late November with our usual
party, so get your raffle tickets now!
Next Saturday September 10th, two members of our
parish will begin studying for the Diaconate our parish
and the Diocese of Rockville Centre. They are Mr. Frank
Dell’Aglio and Mr. Bill Dobbins. Please pray for Frank
and Bill their wives Kathy and Blanca and their families
as they begin their studies and increased service to the
Let us pray, God, you gave me the gift of speech and to
speak in your name. Help me as I use your gifts; may I
always follow the commandment to love. Amen.
Thank you, for all you do for St. Joseph’s
PS. We will be welcoming to St. Joseph’s, later
this week, our new Associate Pastor, Fr. Rene`
Tapel. He will be introducing himself at all of the
Masses next weekend.
“Cain said to his brother Abel, ‘Let us go out in the
field!’ When they were in the field, Cain attacked his
brother Abel and killed him. Then the Lord asked Cain,
‘Where is your brother Abel? He answered, ‘I do not
know. Am I my brother’s keeper?’” Cain answers God
back very sarcastically and in a way, that he hopes will
distract God from His question. Cain hopes that God may
answer, No, I suppose not and leave Cain alone. But God
does not let Cain off the hook, because He knows what
Cain did and in fact, as we see in today’s readings we are
told that we are our brother’s (and sister’s) keeper. How do
we know this; look at God’s words to the Prophet Ezekiel.
“When you hear me say anything, you shall warn them for
me.” “If I tell the wicked, ‘O wicked one, you shall surely
die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade the wicked from
his way…” And now look at the words of our Lord. “Jesus
said to His disciples, ‘If your brother sins against you go
and tell him his fault between you and him alone. If he
listens to you, you have won over your brother.”
Both the Prophet and the Messiah are telling us to help
each other out when they or we are at fault and have put our
will before God’s will. We are told that we cannot take a
blind eye and pretend that something bad isn’t happening or
we really can’t say anything because it is not our business.
But of course, this is not easy. In fact, one of the hardest
things for most people to do is correct the faults of others.
Sometimes we may think, who am I to tell this person they
are doing something wrong? Why would this or that
person listen to me? Well we don’t know if the person is
going to listen to us, and God does speak of the possibility
(in both readings) that we could be rejected- yet we are
told to try.
Again this not about something minor or over
just a mere difference of opinion, no we are told to
take this action for those things which could take a
person away from God and true life. We are told
to take such actions of correcting our brothers and
sisters when they are going to take steps that will
hurt themselves or others. We as Christians are
not supposed to sit idly by and watch people
destroy themselves or do anything that gets in the
way of their journey to Heaven. But remember
success is not what we are being judged upon, only
whether or not we did our part to correct and
speak out against injustice, harmful activity and
selfishness. Of course, we should do all we can to
help the person achieve success, but again its up to
the other person to accept our help and God’s help.
School opens this Wednesday September 7, 2005 and
we are reminded to drive with care as our children make
their way to school in our neighborhoods. Our own St.
Joseph’s School is also opening on this day and we ask

The following are bits of information
gleaned from the current issue of LIFE
NEWS, the September 2005 issue.
1) You are invited to St. Regis Council,
Knights of Columbus, on Monday, Sept. 26 at 7:45 p.m.
to hear Dr. Elizabeth Rex, President of The Children First
Foundation. She will be the guest speaker; her talk will
touch on such important issues as adoption, Baby Safe
Haven, and the effort to establish a “Choose Life” license
plate in New York. (Several other states already have
such a plate.)
2) Do NOT donate to UNICEF – that organization
doesn’t tell you of their anti-life activity and the millions
of U.S. taxpayer dollars annually given to them for their
programs. For a copy of the LIFE NEWS article
explaining all this, please send a self-addressed stamped
envelope to: LICL-UNICEF-a Halloween Trick
P.O. Box 223, Ronkonkoma, NY 11779
3) Oppose Senate bill S.471 – send a letter to Senators
Clinton and Schumer telling them you oppose causing the
deaths of embryos, since extracting their stem cells
during research ALWAYS kills them. Contact
information: Local phone # Schumer -212-486-4430
Clinton – 212-688-6262
4) Please continue to alert the L.I. Coalition for Life
when you come across a notice about community
events, indoor and out, asking for “vendor exhibitors
needed”. This gives the LICL a heads-up for a prolife
table, such as they had at the Senior Summer
Festival. Why there, you might ask? Here are some
reasons: a) seniors vote; they should know what
many pro-choice candidates stand for b) many
grandparents are raising their grandchildren and
should know about pro-life resources should the need
arise c) their taxes pay for abortions through state
programs, including Medicaid d) women who had
abortions some time ago may still be in need of postabortion
Call 243-1435 for information about “a table at the Fair”.

It’s A Parish Fund Raiser
It’s Fun And Exciting
It’s Only $5
Here’s how it works:
You buy a ticket for $5. It will have a 3-team code. It is good for all 17
weeks of the NFL regular Season. Each week the combined high score
wins: $100; Second: $85; Third: $70; Fourth: $50 and the lowest score
wins $35. So for just $5 you have a chance to win one of 5 cash prizes
for each of the 17 weeks. At the end of the season, there will be a
drawing for 10 $50 prizes from the tickets that did not already win a
prize. Buy more than one, get friends, family and coworkers to buy
some. It’s a great way to help support St. Joseph’s Parish and enjoy
the Football Season. Please note, once the season begins, any unsold
tickets remain the property of the contest and any winning prizes of
these tickets remain in the fund. These tickets remain open for
purchase, but the holder is entitled only to those prizes awarded after

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!!!
