Stewardship in Action:
That as steward disciples, we stand ready to
accept, share and cultivate our gifts for service
to all our neighbors in the wider community, we pray to the Lord…
Stewardship Reflection:
Moses told the people, “A prophet like me
will the Lord, your God, raise up for you
from among your own kinsmen.” God still
provides among His people the gifts and
talents necessary to continue the work of
His Church. What gifts are yours to share?
Living Stewardship:
We are grateful this week for all stewards
in our parish who set time aside with the
Sunday Readings throughout the week so as
to be better prepared to hear the Word of
God and act on it.
Stewardship of Collections:
Our thanks and gratitude for your sacrificial
giving each week.

FROM THE PASTOR
Dear Parish Family,
Pope Francis has proclaimed the year 2014-15 as the “Year of Consecrated Life.” He has done this so
as to “deepen awareness of the diverse charisms (gifts to the church) and spiritualities of the various religious
institutes.” Pope Francis reminds us that “from the very beginning of the Church there were women and men
who set out to follow Christ with greater liberty, and to imitate him more closely, by practicing the evangelical
counsels” of chaste self-dedication to God, poverty and obedience.
In the year 1215 St. Dominic began the Order of Preachers, the Dominicans, to dispel the heresy that
was plaguing the people of his time. Dominic believed that the people needed to hear the truth and so he sent
his followers out to preach the truth of God’s love to them. To this day, Dominicans all over the world
“preach” the good news to the people of our time. Our gift to the church, our Charism, is preaching and we
each take this responsibility very seriously.
We the Dominican Sisters of Amityville have been very blessed and privileged to be a part of the life
of St. Hugh parish for many years. Being true to our charism, we “preach” to the people of our time in various
ways. As our vision statement reflects, “We Dominican women religious, called to be signs of joy and hope,
commit ourselves to incarnating the Gospel, deepening our life of prayer, searching for truth, discerning the
needs of the Church, and ministering to the people of God…. We will engage in our corporate ministry of
preaching/teaching in creative ways within Church structures and in other frameworks.”
In response to this vision we have opened our residence as a “Dominican House of Hospitality”
welcoming young adults to join us in living all aspects of our community. We believe that young people are
searching for an intentional living experience where they can pray, study and share life in common and in the
process strengthen their relationship to Christ.
In addition to this community ministry, each one of us has our own ministries outside of our house.
Sister Lenore is the Director of the Opening Word program, a literacy program for immigrant women. The
program, which has been in existence for over 20 years, serves women in three sites, Wyandanch, Amityville,
and right here at St. Hugh. In addition, S. Lenore co-directs the RCIA program here at St. Hugh. Sister Mary
is the testing coordinator for the Opening Word program. S. Mary works with all three sites to make sure that
the state requirements of pre-testing, and post-testing for each participant is up to date. She also teaches
religious education here at St. Hugh. Sister Gina is the Promoter of Youth, for the Dominican Sisters of
Amityville. In that capacity, she directs and coordinates programs for young people to acquaint them with the
Dominicans and our Charism. She believes that many young people have not been made aware of their own
call to “preach” the Good News. Once they recognize that call their lives are changed forever. S. Gina directs
these programs locally, regionally and nationally. In addition, she co-directs the RCIA program here at St.
Hugh.
We, the present community of sisters, are so happy to be a part of the parish here at St. Hugh and feel
blessed to have been so welcomed. We hope to enjoy many years here as parishioners and active participants
of the life of St. Hugh. We ask for your prayers as we all continue this journey together. You can be assured
that “we pray constantly for you.”
Yours in Dominic,
Your Dominican Sisters
Mary, Lenore, and Gina

LA COMUNIDAD HISPANA & NOTICES
Muy estimados hermanos, les quiero saludar y desearles de Dios toda clase de bendiciones esperando
que todo cuanto emprendan les lleva a la alegría de un feliz fin, tanto en cosas materiales como en las espirituales. Les sigo invitando a que sigamos orando por el bien de la comunidad, por todos los que tenemos al
lado especialmente nuestros enfermos, los vecinos sin fe, o aquellos que teniéndola se han dejado enfriar, a
causa de las vicisitudes de la vida o por otras razones, supuestamente de trabajo, etc..
Nos llega el siguiente mes, así llamado el mes del amor y de la amistad. Que mejor oportunidad para
que mostremos este amor, con “el amor de Dios”; sintiéndonos responsables de acercar al amor de Dios a todos aquellos, que Dios mismo nos pone en el camino.
Por ello también les sigo invitando a que no fallemos en la Misa y Hora Santa, de cada inicio de mes, todos los
primeros viernes. Invitemos a uno más y hagamos de esta hora, “el tiempo de Gracia entre Dios con nosotros”.
Les esperamos a todos.

RIGHT TO LIFE
IMPORTANT SINGLE ISSUE
Sometimes a single issue will be so important that it overrides a whole range of lesser issues. Human slavery
is one such historic issue. It simply cannot be condoned no matter how much political support it might enjoy.
The same could also be said for the classification, discrimination and even elimination of people for ethic reasons. The Holocaust is wrong and cannot be justified on any grounds. So also is the taking of the life of an
unborn child. The arbitrary destruction of such life cannot be justified on the grounds that one should be free
to choose to kill.

DEACON TOM
St. Hugh’s Parish Family, Happy New Year!
Today I write to you on my days of new life. I’m
progressing and the physicians said I’m on schedule. But not fast enough for me. My transplant went
as expected and the team of physicians that take
care of me are the best. Please continue to pray for
Margherita and my family. This has been a very
difficult time for them during this process.
God bless you for all your support and prayers.
