A Prayer for Patriot’s Day: We Place in Your Loving Arms
God of love we place in your loving arms the thousands of innocent lives that were
lost on that unforgettable morning of September 11, 2001. We also remember the
courage of the countless men and women who put their lives at risk in order to res-
cue, alleviate and bring solace to the afflicted. Help us to continue to work for a
world free from every form of hatred, violence and ignorance. May terrorism -- in
all its forms -- disappear from the face of the earth. Amen. - Fr. AlbertoCutie
A Prayer to Begin a New School Year: Loving God, thank you for the joys that
summer brought to us. You have blessed us with time to spend with family and
friends, rest and relaxation, and a break from school work. As we return to our
studies, inspire us to take on a new interest in new classes and new topics. Teach
us to be your hands and feet where we are, to love as you love us and to pray for
those in need so that You are honored and glorified. Be with us as we discover
old friendships and start new ones. Amen.

Don’t Forget Your Baby Bottle! On the weekend of September 16th & 17th, St. Dominic parish will be hosting a Baby Bottle Fundraiser to benefit The Life Center of Long Island. The Life Center is a crisis pregnancy center that counsels women and men who are experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. Did you know that they provide: free pregnancy tests maternity housing with eligibility
requirements medical care referrals cribs car seats diapers …and all other baby items that may be needed
We are asking that you pick up a baby bottle and fill it with your change. (Make checks out to the Life Center of L.I.)
Please return the bottles next week, or no later than october 1st
Most importantly, we are asking you to recite the prayer on the bottle. The prayer attached to the bottle will enable the counselors at The Life Center to say just the right words a mother or father may need to hear. It especially opens a mother’s heart to accept the truth. We believe these prayers lead abortion-minded women to call The Life Center in the first place.
Let us pray with our whole heart for the lives of our unborn children.
GOLDEN WEDDING LITURGY
This fall, couples that have been married fifty years or more will be honored at

Commack. Both liturgies will begin at 2:30pm. Couples may register for ONE

tory. Registration must be received by the Office of Worship by October 9th for
the October 22nd liturgy and by November 6th for the November 19th liturgy.
There will be additional celebrations in the spring for those who may find that
more convenient. Dates for the spring celebrations will be communicated at a
later time. If you have any questions you may call 516-678-5800, ext.207.
There will be a second collection this weekend, Sept. 10th, for the Catholic University of America. It is the pontifical univer-sity of the Catholic Church in the United States and the only institution of higher education founded by the U.S. Catholic bishops. Many of our diocesan priests have studied and had formation at CUA & Theological College. Please be as gener-ous as your means allow.

Stretch forth Your hand, Lord, and bless all those who have been impacted by this storm. Thank you for the
