We celebrated Sister Ann Horn's 50th Anniversary of becoming part of the Sisters of St. Dominic, Amityville. Through these 50 years of ministry, Sr. Ann has embodied the Dominican charism of the Holy Preaching though prayer, study, community and ministry. Keep Sr. Ann in your prayers as she continues her ministry as a Consecrated Woman Religious committed to proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Also this day, we celebrated another vocation, this one to Marriage. Fr. Tony blessed Lenny and Terry Aloisio on the occasion of their 65th wedding anniversary. May God continue to bless Lenny and Terry as they continue living out the Sacrament of Marriage.
Our annual Parish Outreach Baby Shower Program provides mothers with spiritual support, our friendship, and the necessities to care for their newborns. We begin our program with a luncheon to encourage integration into our community. St. Brigid's parishioners provide us with traditional baby shower gifts to distribute. We invite a guest speaker to talk to our mothers on topics relative to them. Lastly, we try to make our mothers aware of programs available at our local hospitals.
Our 2016 Baby Shower had 50 women participate. Many thanks to all who attended and helped make this event possible!
