Bishop Barres Issues The Supreme Gift: The Gift of Life, a New Pastoral Letter to Commemorate the Fiftieth Anniversary of Pope Paul VI's Encyclical Humane Vitae

Fifty years ago, on July 25, 1968, Pope Paul VI issued an Encyclical Letter entitled Humanae Vitae, “Sobre la vida humana”. On October 14, 2018, Pope Francis will canonize his predecessor as Pope Saint Paul VI.

In this anniversary year, Bishop John O. Barres of the Diocese of Rockville Centre has issued a Pastoral Letter entitled The Supreme Gift: The Gift of Life, commemorating the encyclical of this soon-to-be-canonized saint. This teaching of the late Holy Father is in many ways more important today than at any time before.

The Supreme Gift: The Gift of Life will be published in The Long Island Catholic and
will be available for download in English and Spanish at
Please read it, and discuss it as married couples and as families.

In his letter, Bishop Barres wants to teach the people of the diocese the important truths of Humanae Vitae, because these truths very much need to be reexamined today in light of the problems we face in our time.

Bishop Barres says: “Understanding the teaching of Humanae Vitae, believing it, and living it, is one of the first and most important answers to the crisis of our time. I truly believe that the future Pope Saint Paul VI wrote the letter more for our times than even for his own. Today, it can become the first step in repairing the injury between men and women, husbands and wives, parents and children, the family and society.”

At the Mass of Beatification of Pope Paul VI in 2014, Pope Francis said of his predecessor:
“When we look to this great Pope, this courageous Christian, this tireless apostle, we cannot but say in the sight of God a word as simple as it is heartfelt and important: thanks! Thank you, our dear and beloved Pope Paul VI! Thank you for your humble and prophetic witness of love for Christ and his Church! …
In [his] humility the grandeur of Blessed Paul VI shines forth: before the advent of a secularized and hostile society, he could hold fast, with farsightedness and wisdom – and at times alone – to the helm of the barque of Peter, while never losing his joy and his trust in the Lord.”

Report on St. Anthony’s Feast 2018

The final figures are in for the St. Anthony's Feast 2018. By every measure, it was a huge success. We estimate that more than 12,000 people enjoyed the rides, games, music, food and family fun over the four days of the Feast.

I’m delighted to report to you that this year’s Feast (our 49th) earned our parish a total of $113,110.00 (after expenses). It represents an increase of $5,773.00 (5.4%) over the 2017 Feast.

A big thank you to everyone who works so hard and gives so much to help make our Feast the amazing success it is year after year. Your work dedication, effort, imagination and talent make so much else possible for our parish.

St. Anthony’s shines bright! God blesses us.

Fr. Jim Donovan
