Catholic Ministries Appeal
Monday is Memorial Day and we would like to recognize and show our appreciation to all who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country and the freedoms we enjoy.
We would like to ask you to take a moment tomorrow to pray for those that have served and are serving our nation. Many families have lost loved ones, and our military men and women that have survived will face countless struggles and challenges for the rest of their lives.
On Monday when we honor and celebrate their service and sacrifice, let us also remember the once homeless veterans, who because of your support of the Catholic Ministries Appeal, have been helped through our ministries and programs like Catholic Charities Project Veterans’ Independence.
Thank you for your support! You make a difference in the lives of so many through your prayers and generosity!
CONGRATULATIONS TO OUR VERY OWN LORELEI (BULLET) ONGLENGCO!!!!
FOR GRADUATING FROM THE SCHOOL OF MISSIONARY DISCIPLES ON JUNE 7TH
GRADUATING CLASS OF 2021
BULLET WITH BISHOP ANDRZEJ ZGLEJSZEWSKI

The New York State Legislature is set to vote on Thursday on legislation (A6399A/S1553B) that would seal or expunge criminal convictions for most offenses within three years (misdemeanors) or seven years (felonies) for individuals who have completed their sentence and have not been charged with additional crimes.
While the goal of giving people a second chance and eliminating a stigma on those who have paid their debt to society is laudable, the legislation would have the consequence of making it impossible for Catholic schools, CYO programs, and parish-based youth ministry and faith formation programs to conduct proper background checks on potential volunteers or employees. Even people who have harmed children would not come to our attention if this bill were to become law as written.
Please contact your state Senator and Assembly member now and urge them not to support this legislation unless it is amended to protect children.
Lethal Threat to Pro-Life Pregnancy Services
New York State’s government, in the complete control of pro-abortion radicals, is moving to “intimidate, silence and shut down” pro-life pregnancy services that offer women life-affirming alternatives to abortion. To read Rick Hinshaw’s latest blog post, click here.
