“These are times that try men’s souls”.
We have never dealt with a situation quite like this. We probably all know someone who has suffered, or died, in our current
health crisis. Our lives have changed drastically and may not return to the former “normal”.
Pray to Our Savior, the Great Healer, to put an end to this disease. Have faith in the scientists working toward a cure. Pray
for the sick and deceased. Pray for all first responders, healthcare, and essential services workers. They put themselves,
and their families, in danger every day. Stay in contact with friends and family. Stay home, stay safe, stay healthy.
Now for Council news……. Until we can return to the American Legion Hall, we will initiate, for the short term,
teleconference meetings. You will receive an e-mail message when we work out details.
If our Church re-opens, we have 5th Sunday Mass and breakfast scheduled for May 31st.
Elections for Council and Home Association leadership are still planned for the first meeting in June. All other activities
are on hold.
District 11 is initiating a “Thank you” lawn sign program, to honor those who continue to help us through this
struggle. Signs will be available for $15 each. Any profits from this program will be given to Catholic Health Services of
Long Island, to purchase much-needed personal protective equipment (PPE). An image of the sign will be available soon. It
will be posted on our Facebook page.
