Dear Parishioners,

   I simply wish to mention again a few items from the last few bulletins.

   Things seem to be going pretty well in terms of back-to-school.  The children in Sacred Heart School and our Religious Education Program are getting back into a routine and I am certain it is good one.  Let us continue to pray for all our children and our families.

   The Youth Group and CYO Basketball are getting started once again, which is also a good thing for our parish.  In fact, all the groups in the parish are getting back to full swing like the Choir and (this Thursday) Our Lady’s Guild.  Once the school year starts and everything becomes active again, this becomes a very busy place.  Our faith is the driving force of everything that goes on here.  

   I reminded everyone recently of the different ways our parish supports various undertakings in the life of the Church.  In addition to our weekly collections, our recent second collections did well for the Missions and for Saint Joseph’s Seminary.  Next weekend, there will be a second collection to support our Youth Group. There are several raffle sales coming up, including Raffles today for the Blauvelt Dominicans, a raffle next weekend to benefit Tagaste Monastery and another on October 11th for the Knights of Columbus.  All of these, and other fundraisers like the Baby bottle campaign, demonstrate tremendous compassion and generosity on your part.  I have to thank you once again, first and foremost, for your support of the parish. While I encourage everyone to support the Raffles and Fundraisers as best you can, we truly need to take care of ourselves first before we can help others.  In the end, our parish always comes through in every way, even in these difficult times.

  Let us remember that Jesus is with us in all things and he guides the work of our hands and hearts.  God Bless us all.

                         Sincerely in Christ,

                                 Monsignor Joseph R. Giandurco
