Reflections On the Gospel Jesus’s message this Sunday is one of unity. He and God are one, and we are one with each other and with God. What a perfect message for Mother’s Day! In the original Mother’s Day Proclamation of 1870, it could be said that Julia Ward Howe understood that unity better than most. Addressing mothers across borders, she wrote: “Arise, then, women of this day! Arise, all women who have hearts, whether your baptism be that of water or tears! ... Take counsel with each other as to the means whereby the great human family can live in promote the alliance of the different nationalities, the amicable settlement of international questions, and the great and general interests of peace.” May we, men and women, parents and those without children, answer this call to unity and peace this Mother’s Day.

Our Lady of the Hamptons

Thirty-five members of the parent and local communities participated in the first -ever Career Day for Prep students at OLH. Representatives from politics, law enforcement, construction and medicine were among those who offered advice and direction to the students, under the direction of Mrs. Valerie Hanley. Prep 7 student John Allan has advanced to the national finals of the National History Bee, having clinched a spot at the regionals held in New Jersey. He will next compete in Chicago on June 9. The twenty-five member Hamptonix, the boys’ show chorus, sang the National Anthem at the April 29 Long Island Ducks game in Central Islip.

The registration period leading toward enrollment at OLH for September 2016 is now completed for grades 3-8, with very limited space available in Pre-K and primary grades. Interested families are invited to request information packets early.. Students seeking admission to kindergarten must be five years of age prior to December 1, 2016. Call 283-9140 for details.

2016 Catholic Ministries Appeal

Happy Mother’s Day! As we join together to celebrate the wonderful Mom’s in our lives, let’s also take time to remember and pray for all the thousands of Moms who worry about how they are going to put food on the table for their children this week.

More than 35% of the 300,000 people on Long Island who receive emergency food each year are children under the age of 18.

Please consider supporting the work of the Catholic Ministries Appeal so that we can continue to care for God’s children and their families through our Parish Outreach programs and Catholic Charities. Our hope is that each family will make a gift. We cannot ask everyone to consider the same size gift, but after prayer and reϔlection, each family is invited to make a gift in response to God’s generosity in their lives. No gift is too small and all gifts make a difference in the lives of others!

Feliz Día de las Madres - De parte de nuestro párroco, Padre Miguel, los sacerdotes, los líderes laicos y todos los miembros de la parroquia, les deseamos a todas las madres un feliz día de las Madres. Que Dios les bendiga con paz y amor.

El Papa Anima a las Mujeres Embarazadas - A cada mujer embarazada quiero pedirle con afecto: Cuida tu alegría, que nada te quite el gozo interior de la maternidad. Ese niño merece tu alegría. No permitas que los miedos, las preocupaciones, los comentarios ajenos o los problemas apaguen esa felicidad de ser instrumento de Dios para traer una nueva vida al mundo. Ocúpate de lo que haya que hacer o preparar, pero sin obsesionarte, y alaba como María: «Proclama mi alma la grandeza del Señor, se alegra mi espíritu en Dios, mi salvador; porque ha mirado la humillación de su sierva» (Lc 1,46-48). Vive ese sereno entusiasmo en medio de tus molestias, y ruega al Señor que cuide tu alegría para que puedas transmitirla a tu niño. De Amoris Laetitia, §§171. Dado en Roma, el 19 de marzo, del año 2016. Intenciones del Papa para Mayo Universal: Las mujeres en la sociedad. Para que en todos los países del mundo las mujeres sean honradas y respetadas y sea valorizado su imprescindible aporte social. Por la Evangelización: El Rosario. Para que se difunda en las familias, comunidades y grupos, la práctica de rezar el santo Rosario por la evangelización y por la paz.

La Fiesta del Cuerpo y Sangre de Cristo - El domingo, 29 de mayo, es la Fiesta de Corpus Christi y después de la Misa habrá una procesión afuera con el Santísimo. Si quiere poner un altar para su país, favor de hablar con Walter Quintanilla. Rincón de Información

Bautizos en Southampton serán el 5 de junio, el 3 de julio, el 7 de agosto, el 4 de septiembre, el 2 de octubre, el 6 de noviembre y el 4 de diciembre. El Asesor de Inmigración de Caridades Católicas En el Apostolado Hispano en Southampton el jueves, 12 de mayo, de las 2:00 a las 5:00 PM.

Jesús o el P. Esteban. El curso pre-matrimonial se da por seis domingos, de las 9 AM al mediodía comenzando el primer domingo de octubre o de feb.

Padre Cesar Lara: Cel. 631-332-5300 Padre Jesus Arellano: Cel. 929-257-3467 Padre Esteban: Cel. 631-375-1001; Fax: 631-287-0986 Horas del Apostolado: martes a viernes de las 2-4 PM


Santo Padre Francisco reconoce y agradece a las Madres - Las madres [...]testimonian la belleza de la vida». Sin duda, «una sociedad sin madres sería una sociedad inhumana, porque las madres saben testimoniar siempre, incluso en los peores momentos, la ternura, la entrega, la fuerza moral. Las madres transmiten a menudo también el sentido más profundo de la práctica religiosa: en las primeras oraciones, en los primeros gestos de devoción que aprende un niño[...] Sin las madres, no sólo no habría nuevos fieles, sino que la fe perdería buena parte de su calor sencillo y profundo. [...] Queridísimas mamás, gracias, gracias por lo que sois en la familia y por lo que dais a la Iglesia y al mundo». La madre, que ampara al niño con su ternura y su compasión, le ayuda a despertar la confianza, a experimentar que el mundo es un lugar bueno que lo recibe, y esto permite desarrollar una autoestima que favorece la capacidad de intimidad y la empatía. De Amoris Laetitia, §§174,175. Dado en Roma, 19 de marzo, del año 2016.

Curso Pre-Bautismal – el 22 de Mayo - El próximo curso será el domingo, 22 de mayo. No habrá curso el 29 de mayo

Happy Mother’s Day !
