6 Focus on Religious Freedom From Catholics For Freedom of Religion The following are headlines about schools that don t know The Big Secret The U.S. Dept. of Education Guidelines make it clear It s OK for students to Pray in Public Schools! * California Deputy Sheriff Visits Home of First- Grade Student to Warn Him Against Sharing His Faith with Classmates * Sixth-Grade Student Prohibited from Mentioning Her Faith in "All About Me" Presentation * New York Middle School Students Told to Turn Their T-Shirts Inside-out Because They Have Religious Symbols Public Schools are not God-Free Zones. The courts have declared that students and teachers do not shed their Constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gates Catholics For Freedom of Religion, together with Americans For Freedom of Religion, have produced a 9 minute educational video titled: It s OK to Pray. You can see the video at ww.youtube.com. Type the words It s OK to Pray in Public Schools in the search bar, and watch Long Island students explain denials of religious expression and act out protected rights to live their faith in public schools. (First Liberty Institute; Undeniable: The Survey of Hostility to Religion in America) A Bible and a newspaper in every house, a good school in every district... are the principle support of virtue, morality, and civil liberty. Benjamin Franklin

Items such as cereal, pasta, peanut butter, jelly, soup, baby food, pancake mix, tea/coffee, detergents, juice boxes, toothpaste, etc. are always needed. Gift cards are always welcome. After the holiday period, the need to support the food pantry remains an ongoing one. We will be collecting the donations at the Council Hall, 44 Church Street, on Saturday, April 21 st and Sunday, April 22 nd from 10:00 AM to 1:00 PM. If this is not convenient, please call Bob Normandin ( ) or Charlie Herbert ( ) to make alternate arrangements.

Sunday 11 AM - TH: 2 Ushers needed (CH = Church, TH = Travis Hall) Ushers are the first person our Parishioners see. We are the ones greeting and seating with our maroon Blazers. It is up to us to make sure everyone is comfortable and safe. We are responsible for the stocking and handing out literature, collection, assigning persons to bring up gifts and straightening the Church before Mass. It is a great way to ease into volunteering with the Church or become a familiar face within our parish and most important to give back to our community.

17 Have you ever considered becoming an Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion? Purpose: This ministry exists to assist the priests of the parish in the distribution of Communion. Many members of this ministry also take Communion to the homebound, so that our homebound parishioners may partake of Holy Communion at least once a week. Activities/Responsibilities: Eucharistic Ministers serve at Mass on Sundays, Weekday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation through out the year. Background: With the shortage of priests, the laity is needed to assist where possible in the mission of the Church. One of the Corporal Works of Mercy (to visit the sick) is borne out by making Holy Communion available by those unable to attend Mass. By taking them communion, sharing some of the scripture readings and or homily for that Sunday, giving them a copy of the church bulletin, and engaging in small talk and listening to their concerns, they are connected to the parish community even though they cannot be present physically. Requirements: Training for Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion is required for all those who are interested. The pastor (Fr. Seán) will send a letter to the Bishop on behalf of those interested and they will then attend a Diocesan Training Session. Upon successful completion, they will be commissioned and begin their service/ministry to St. Joseph s parish. The minimum age for Eucharistic Ministers is 18. Commitment: Most Ministers commit to a two-year term of service, renewable at the discretion of the Pastor. Upcoming Time/Location for Ministry Training: EM A Session ~ Saturday, May 12, 2018; 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM ~ St. Rosalie, Hampton Bays EM B Session for Extraordinary Ministers (for those ministering in hospitals, nursing homes and to homebound parishioners). Session A Must be attended prior to Session B. Saturday, May 19, 2018; 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM ~ St. Rosalie, Hampton Bays Evening Sessions for Extraordinary Ministers at St. Elizabeth, Melville Session A ~ Wednesday, May 16, 2018; 7:00 to 10:00 PM Session B ~ Wednesday, May 23, 2018; 7:00 to 10:00 PM If interested, please call Cathy Cotter at the Parish Center ext: 219 so that she may register you for the Diocesan Training Session.

18 Have you ever considered becoming a Lector? Purpose: Lectors proclaim the Good News of Salvation to the parish community, striving to present it as a friend of St. Paul s in Corinth in biblical times might have done; as a letter from a very special friend, about a topic very important to all. Activities: Each lector proclaims about once every 2-3 weeks on Sundays, Weekday Mass and Holy Days of Obligation. Lectors prepare themselves to proclaim the scriptures by meditating on the readings during the week prior to their assignment. This meditation is facilitated by using the workbook provided to all lectors. The workbook contains the readings, historical and contextual notes, tips on proclaiming the passage, and a pronunciation guide for difficult biblical words. Background: The scriptures recount the relationship between God and His people through many centuries. The three readings and the Psalms proclaimed at Mass are selected by the church to present a common theme, message, or lesson. Since the Lector proclaims not just any word, but the Word of God, it is essential that they develop the skills required to communicate God s message competently. The ministry of the lector calls for a person to grow in a warm and loving knowledge of Scripture, the living word of God. Responsibilities: Completion of Diocesan Training Session; training and preparation of the readings for your assigned Mass; acquainting oneself with the Prayer of the Faithful/Pulpit Announcements when you arrive for your scheduled assignment. Commitment: To qualify, a lector must be a member of the parish, at least a high school junior (11 th grade), and have public reading skills. A 3-year commitment is requested to coincide with the 3-year lectionary cycle developed by the Church. Participants are required to attend a training workshop held once each year (See below). Lectors whose commitments limit them to a particular Mass are accommodated; others are rotated through each of the weekend masses. Upcoming Training Session for the Ministry of Lector: Saturday, May 12, 2018; 9:00 AM - 1:00 PM ~ St. Rosalie, Hampton Bays Evening Sessions for Ministry of Lectors at St. Elizabeth, Melville Wednesday, May 16, 2018; 7:00 to 10:00 PM If interested, please call Cathy Cotter at the Parish Center ext: 219 so that she may register you for the Diocesan Training Session.
