MISSION STATEMENT

Worship

Communal worship is the center and the heart of our parish life.  We strive for the active participation of all in the celebration of the Eucharist.

Community Life

We strive to create an integrated, gracious parish community whose members recognize and respect the inherent dignity of every person.  We minister to one another and reach out to those with special need.

Spiritual Growth and Development

We seek to respond in faith and love to the Scriptures and through prayer and reflection throughout the year, allow the Word of God to nourish, sustain, and transform our personal and communal lives.  

Education in the Faith

We encourage lifelong religious education for youth and adults.  Drawing upon gifts within and outside the parish, we hope to deepen our knowledge and understanding of the Church and of the challenges we face as Catholics in our own time.  May God bless us in our efforts to be faithful to our mission.

Special Announcement from the Diocese of Rockville Centre

You may be aware from media coverage this past week of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury
Report on sexual abuse of minors by Catholic priests that Bishop Barres was referenced in the
report stemming from his time as the Bishop of Allentown.  The report accuses Bishop Barres
of not dealing decisively with accusations against priests, one priest in particular. To be
absolutely clear, what the report presents regarding Bishop Barres is inaccurate and
misleading on key facts.  During his time as the Bishop of Allentown, Bishop Barres was, in
fact, as vigilant as he is now about identifying and removing abusive priests and protecting
God’s children. We urge everyone to take home and read the full statement regarding the
inaccuracies in the report. The statement is also available on the diocesan website at
www.drvc.org.
 
The abuse of any human being – particularly of children – is a terrible sin and a crime.  It
should not happen anywhere and it most particularly should not happen in the Catholic
Church.  The fact that it did is disgraceful and the Bishop is committed to removing any
abusers and keeping out future ones.  And we continue to pray and work toward healing for
survivors of abuse.  The Pennsylvania report looks back at 70 years.  It is important to note
the progress that has been made since 2002.  It is also important to be accurate when
reporting on or speaking about the record of Church leaders who have confronted these
terrible issues. Clearly, the Church’s vigilance in this area can never cease, and, in fact must
always be expanded.
