Would You Like to Decorate A Box For Thanksgiving?
We are just beginning our Thanksgiving preparations. Each year we give families in need a Thanksgiving Basket (box) filled with food for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner for Thanksgiving Day. If you would like to help, please consider decorating a cardboard box (approximately 18″ X 20″). Some suggestions are to cover the outside of the box with colored paper, wrapping paper, or a fall/Thanksgiving plastic tablecloth. Also, hand-drawn Thanksgiving pictures are a nice added touch. There is no right or wrong way — feel free to use your imagination. This can be a fun family project — a time to share our blessings with those in need.
Do not feel obligated to fill the boxes with food. We would be happy to simply receive a decorated box that we would then fill with food donated to the pantry. However, if you would like to donate food for these boxes, please refer to the list of needed food items.
We will be giving these boxes to families in our community as well as other Long Island parishes and some Charitable Organizations.
Please return decorated boxes as soon as possible but no later than the week of November 13th.

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
I am writing to you again on a topic that cannot be repeated enough, because it concerns every one of us – our health and well-being – and I am pleading that we give it our utmost attention and cooperate with the parish administration to ensure the safety of everyone who enters the parish compound.
It is about the Covid-19 protocols that we are all required to observe. The protocols are sanctioned by both the State of New York and the Diocese of Rockville Centre – call them State and Ecclesial Laws, if you wish, signed by the Governor, Andrew Cuomo and the Bishop of the Rockville Centre Diocese, Most Reverend John Barres, respectively.
The most basic of the norms are FACE COVERING and SOCIAL DISTANCING. Continue reading “Letter from our Pastor, October 11, 2020”
