What I say to you in the darkness, speak in the light; what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops. And do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul.

Please remember your SUMMER CONTRIBUTION to help us through these months…we can’t do it alone.  Envelopes located at each entrance. We depend upon the generosity of all parishioners to help keep our parish alive and active and financially solvent.
Remember while you are away in the summer and our attendance is much lower…our plate collection is also much lower. Newman is still here paying utility bills, payroll, pensions, taxes, etc

Dear Newman Friends, This will be my last week at Newman. It is hard to believe it has been 19 years! Although this has not been an easy decision, I know it is the right one. I have no specific plans but hope to be able to take some time to travel and spend more time with my family. My daughter is getting married and I am looking forward to enjoying this new chapter in our lives. This has been a wonderful journey and I have been blessed beyond words.  Thank you for being a part of my life. I will cherish the many wonderful friendships that I have made along the way. 
Blessings ♥      Shelley
Brockport Mega Blood Drive is Wed., July 12th from 12-7pm
at the Sweden Community Center
The American Red Cross is urging all eligible blood donors, of all blood types, to give now to help ensure a sufficient blood supply this summer. With many donors vacationing and schools that host blood drives on break, summer is an especially difficult time to collect enough blood donations to meet the needs of patients. Your donation is needed now to help ensure doctors and hospitals have what they need on the shelves for patients in need this summer.

Do you know someone who has never donated before? Please encourage them to make an appointment with you. New donors are needed to help avoid shortages this summer. Those who come out to give now through Sept. 4, 2017, can enter for a chance to win a grand prize package to Cedar Point or Knott’s Berry Farm at Go to to find a location for a blood drive or to schedule an appointment.

Dear Friends and Supporters of the Brockport Food Shelf,
We hope you know how much we appreciate all your donations.  This month I’d like to share a few quotes from thank you notes we’ve received from those who have been helped by those donations.
“I just wanted to express my appreciation, not only for the food, but also to you and your helpers.  The generosity of the volunteers’ time and kindness towards me and other participants has helped me to restore my faith in God and other human beings.”
“I am truly appreciative of your generosity and loving assistance now and throughout the whole year.”
“I wish to give thanks to all of you at the food shelf for helping me keep food on the table for my family.”
You, as a donor and/or a volunteer, make a difference in many people’s lives!  I join with those we serve in thanking you.
During the month of May, we distributed food to 164 adults, 64 children and 66 seniors.  As summer approaches, the numbers are once again rising with children soon to be out of school.  We will be giving out extra boxes of food to families with school age children throughout July and August.
For those of you who ask what we need most, this month the top three items would be TUNA, CEREAL, and all varieties of PASTA.  Many varieties of Wegmans pasta are still on sale (79c) until the end the of June.
            Your monetary donations are also very helpful because we purchase perishables (cheese, eggs, yogurt, produce) each week plus any other basic food items that we need.  And, when supplies are low, we also buy shampoo and conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, feminine products, toilet paper, and detergents, items that can’t be obtained with SNAP (food stamps). 
If you do have a large donation of food, please call ahead (637-8169) to make an appointment to drop it off or have someone pick it up.  
PLEASE NOTE:  We will be closed on Thursday, June 29, the fifth Thursday of the month.
Remember that if you know of anyone who needs help with food, please have them call us at 637-8169.  Someone will either answer the call or, if you leave a message, the call will be returned, usually within an hour or two.  We can help… and we do deliver to those who are unable to come to the Food Shelf.
With gratitude,    
Kathy Hayes, Director  637-8169
