You know that those who are recognized as rulers over the Gentiles
lord it over them, and their great ones make their authority over them felt.
But it shall not be so among you.
Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you will be your servant;
whoever wishes to be first among you will be the slave of all.

In Nomine Domini
Dear Parish Family,
Our In Nomine Domini renewal is about to take a huge step from drawing board to reality. We have already
brought a number of projects to completion: Our bell tower and carillon are complete and ringing. Our
interior lighting upgrade is 90% complete. We estimate that the total power of all our fixtures before the
upgrade was about 21,600 watts! Now that will spin your electric meter. At this point we are brighter and
now using only about 10% of that energy. The last piece of this project is to upgrade the front altar spots
and the exterior church lighting for the building and walkways.
Or course I am sure you are all anxious about the big projects: heating and air conditioning, pew
refinishing, carpet, and restrooms. Here is the current schedule.
November 2015
• Required upgrade to electric service
• Contracts awarded for our geothermal wells—If required permits can be secured in time, the work will
be done before the new year.
March / April 2016
• Beginning the day after Easter, March 26, our church will close for about 2 weeks to allow removal of
old radiators and installation of new heating / cooling units.
• We are working to coordinate removal / refinishing of pews and floor refinishing in that same time
• Depending on the schedule and temperatures, we may still be able to have Sunday Mass in Church—we
will use the church hall if needed.
May 2006
• By mid May our air-conditioning is scheduled to be operational.
• We will be able to put finishing touches on carpet and pew work as the job is completed.
Rest Rooms
• At the present time we have a design for the rest rooms. There will be two located in the east side
vestibule of the church (on the left as you face the altar). We are presently working our way through
permits and creating final bid documents for the work. I hope this can be scheduled over the winter and
early spring.
So as you can see there is a lot that has taken place. We are in a position now to see things really move in
the next few months. Thank you so much for your generosity. None of this would be possible without your
love for Sacred Hearts!
Sincerely yours in Christ,
Rev. Michael A. Vetrano, Pastor

St. Agnes Medal 2015
Kate Duggan
We are proud and joyful to announce that this
year’s St. Agnes Medal of Service will be
awarded posthumously to Kate Duggan. Kate
passed away this spring and her husband, Bill,
and children, Ann and Bill, will receive the
medal at St. Agnes Cathedral on October 25th.
Kate served our parish in so many ways. She
was an active member of our Liturgy
committee, In Nomine Domini Renewal
committee, and a Eucharistic Minister
to name just a few of the many hats she wore.
Above all else, she was known for her wisdom, humor, and kindness. Kate was also a recipient of
the Gloria Gaines Memorial award from Marymount College at Fordham University.

Meet Jeannine Rose: Our new Director of Sacred Hearts
Parish Social Ministry
Parish Social Ministry
My name is Jeannine Rose and I am the
newest member of the staff at Sacred Hearts
of Jesus & Mary. In the position of
Director of Social Ministry, I hope to be
able to work with you to develop and reconnect relationships with all members of
the Parish Community.
Previously, I have worked as Director of
Parish Outreach at. St. Lawrence the Martyr
in Sayville, as well as Coordinator of
Religious Education at St. Francis Cabrini in Coram. I am a native Long Islander.
Born in Smithtown, grew up in Centereach, went to college in Oakdale and raised
four children in Coram where I still reside. I come to Sacred Hearts keenly aware of
the many challenges of raising a family on Long Island. It is my hope that this
experience will help me to reach out to the members of the community, from our
seniors, to the homebound, to those in need as well as our Spanish speaking
parishioners and the Spanish Apostolate.
I can not do any of this work without you! I look forward to meeting you in the next
few weeks and months and hope you will stop in to the Office to say hello, and
consider volunteering to help me make this vision a reality.

Where Do I Stand with the Church?
This evening will be given by Fr. Mike Vetrano, our pastor. Fr. Mike is also an
advocate at the tribunal in our diocese. Advocates help those seeking annulments to
bring their case before the tribunal in a pastorally sensitive and compassionate manner.
This evening is geared for those who wonder about where they or a friend or a family
member stand with the church and will explain the various options open to those who
were married in the church and now wish to begin a new relationship with the full
blessing of the church.

Reflections On the Gospel from Pax Christi
October 18, 2015
Sunday’s readings are likely to speak quite directly to each of us. After all, haven’t we all
experienced suffering? And haven’t we hoped that our suffering will somehow prove worth the
pain? Don’t we all wish for glory of some kind? And aren’t we inclined to think that we can do
what it takes to achieve it? But do the readings speak as directly to us when Jesus makes it very
clear that to share in his glory we must serve selflessly, even if that results in torture and death?
Ouch! Why does this faith have to be so hard? Let’s ask ourselves, “Am I willing to serve
humbly with boundless generosity? What does that mean in my real, personal life?” Then, give
it a try.
Religious Liberty in the United States
An Evening with Thomas Renker
Monday Evening, October 19th
Increasingly, cultural changes that come into conflict with religious teaching are reflected in
statutory, judge-made and administrative law. The transformation of these cultural movements into
law affects the rights of religious people and organizations to conduct themselves in conformance
with the teachings of their faith. Thomas Renker, General Counsel of the Diocese of Rockville
Centre, will offer a perspective on the growing conflict between culture and religious freedom in the
United States.
Tom Renker joined the Diocese of Rockville Centre as General Counsel on October 22, 2007. For over 25 years, he has
provided legal counsel to New York not-for-profit religious organizations and is now active, along with the grass roots
Long Island organization, Catholics for Freedom of Religion, in raising awareness of growing governmental and cultural
threats to the practice of religion in the public square. A native Long Islander and alumnus of Chaminade High School,
Tom is a 1986 graduate of New York University School of Law and a 1982 graduate of Columbia College, Columbia
University. A former resident of Sag Harbor, where his three children attended Stella Maris Regional School, he and his
wife, Mary, now reside in Mineola and are parishioners of Corpus Christi parish.
