In today’s reading from Ezekiel, the power of repentance
and turning away from sin is proclaimed. Paul writes to
the Philippians that Jesus emptied Himself for the welfare
of the world and because of this, God exalted Him forever
as Christ and Lord. In the Gospel, Jesus says that
repentant sinners will be rewarded in God’s kingdom.
We will be having a baby clothing collection see
details in the further on in the bulletin. Also next
weekend we will have our Confirmation Enrollment
at all of the Masses when our Confirmandi will bring
forward their written commitment to receiving the
Holy Spirit and becoming adult members of the
Church. On the weekend of October 8 and 9 at the 5
PM Mass and the 10:30 AM, Mass we will bless
Bibles and be giving them to our Level 6 Students
from Religious Education and the School. Please
keep them in your prayers.
On Wednesday October 5th, St. Joseph’s School
will be having its annual golf outing-please call the
school for more information or read more on in the
You may recall that last year we converted the
5 PM Mass back to the Youth Mass and it has been
going very well. Young people are serving as
Lectors, Ushers and in the Youth Choir, and they are
doing a great job. This year we are introducing the
next part of our Youth Ministry, The Venturing
Group(s). This component will provide social and
fun activities for the youth of the parish, as well as
helping them become better adult members of the
Church and the Country. Young People and Adults
will work together to minister to each other and
make St. Joseph’s a place for everybody.
Also, we will be starting a Young Adult Group
for people in their 20’s and 30’s- more information
will appear in future bulletins. There is always
something happening here at St. Joseph’s-let’s all
work together to make St. Joseph’s one of the best
parishes in the Diocese.
Thank you for all you do for St. Joseph’s
In the Book of Genesis we read, “You are free to
eat from any of the trees in the garden except the tree
of knowledge of good and evil. From that tree you
shall not eat: the moment you eat from it you are
surely doomed to die.” “Now the serpent was the most
cunning of all the animals. The serpent asked the
woman “Did God really tell you not to eat from any of
the garden?” The woman answered, “We may eat of
the fruit of the trees in the garden, it is only about the
fruit if the tree in the middle of the garden that God
said “You shall not eat or even touch it, least you
die”. But, the serpent said to the woman: “you,
certainly will not die! No, God knows well the moment
you eat of it your eyes will be opened and you will be
like gods who know what is good and evil.”
Eve listened to the serpent and ate from the tree of
the knowledge of good and evil, gave it to Adam, and
sin enters into the human family-because Adam and
Eve thought they would become just like God by
trying to capture or steal a little bit of the Divine
Person and Power. They try to take “the easy way
out” and achieve a perfection beyond themselves.
Unfortunately the perfection they were seeking they
already had, but now because of sin they could never
possess it without the help of God-which we receive
only through Christ.
Adam’s pride got in his way, yet Paul tells us this
week about a great act of humility, an act that
achieved our salvation. As Paul tells us, “Have in you
the same attitude that is also in Christ Jesus, who,
though He was in the form of God did not regard
equality with God something to be grasped. Rather,
He emptied himself, taking the form of a slave, coming
in human likeness.” Christ becomes one of us to save
us and restore us. Christ gives us an example to follow
“becoming obedient to the point of death” (meaning
Jesus became a vessel with the capacity of being filled
with God’s will). Paul tells us to be humble in how
we live our lives, to do nothing out of selfishness or
out of vain glory. We are told by Paul to reconsider
how we approach this life and our relationship with
God. Do we stand like Adam and act full of pride and
getting it all wrong, or do we stand like Christ humbly
giving ourselves to God doing everything the Father
asks so they we may have true life? Will we be
instruments of God’s love and life, or will follow the
advice of the serpent and a world that does not truly

. The St. Joseph Respect Life Committee meeting
previously scheduled for the month of September has
been rescheduled. The new date is Thursday, October 6th
at 7 PM in the library under the stage. As before, all
interested persons are invited and welcome.
Next Sunday, October 2nd, two important events in the
Respect Life community are happening. At our church,
St. Joseph’s, when you come to Mass on Saturday or
Sunday, you will find the bassinet in the church foyer.
Please remember to grab your coupons and buy some
diapers, as this year Parish Outreach asked specifically
for that. Diapers for babies and toddlers are needed.
Whatever you donate will be distributed through Parish
Outreach. We won’t refuse any handmade items, though,
but will welcome them, as usual.
That same day in the afternoon, people from all over
Long Island will gather in Huntington at the intersection
of Rte. 110 and Jericho Turnpike to celebrate Long
Island’s pro-life commitment by standing roadside with
signs affirming their belief that all life is precious, born
and unborn. Each group has a specific place to stand, and
St. Joseph’s is in front of Bloomingdale’s. Please join us
from 2PM until 3:30 PM.
Let’s revisit some Life issues:
The U.S. Supreme Court decisions Roe v.
Wade and Doe v. Bolton legalized
abortion through all 9 months of pregnancy
for ANY reason.
Up to 60% of abortions are coerced. (Aborted Women,
Silent No More).
In New York State, a minor DOES NOT need a parent’s
permission or knowledge to have an abortion. She does
need a parent’s ok to get body piercing, a tattoo, or to get
an aspirin from the school nurse.
Among women who had been pregnant at least once, the
risk of breast cancer in those who had experienced an
induced abortion was 50% higher than among other
women. (National Cancer Institute; (1994); 1584)
There were approximately 8,500 induced abortions
committed in Nassau and Suffolk counties in 2003.

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!!!
