NOTE FROM FR. JOHN: Our parish is proud to acknowledge that our parishioner, Pierre Poux, was honored last week for his 30-year support of SHORE (Sheltering the Homeless Is Our Responsibility). Pierre was surrounded by his family at the SHORE mid-summer fundraising dinner at the Orienta Beach Club in Mamaroneck. Organizations, as SHORE, remind us of the mission of Jesus to reach out to the marginalized of society.

A WORD FROM POPE FRANCIS: “Jesus himself tells us in no uncertain terms that we will be judged by the mercy we show to the poor: those who hunger and thirst, the naked, the stranger, the sick, and those in prison. Particularly in our prosperous societies, Christians are called to the guard against the temptation of indifference.” – Jubilee Audience, June 30, 2016
