Public Policy Advocacy Weekend:

Next weekend February 10/11 has been designated as Public Policy Advocacy Weekend. Bishop Matano and the Diocese of Rochester Public Policy Committee are asking us to join them and the U. S. Catholic Bishops to advocate for passage of The Dream Act by Congress. Please consider taking a moment after Mass next weekend to sign the petition we will have available.

Reflection

In today’s first reading from the Book of Job, Job begins to lose hope when trials set in. In the second reading Paul presses on as does Jesus who cures the ill and those possessed by demons although the day has passed and it is already sunset. We cannot allow young people who have applied themselves, worked diligently and desire to contribute to our U.S. society and economy to be brutally turned away and sent back to their countries of origin where they may not know either the culture or the language. It is currently estimated that approximately 800,000 young people qualify as DREAMERS. It is estimated that 91% are employed. If they are deported over 700,000 jobs would be lost to the economy. Those who work pay taxes and contribute to the economic growth of our nation.

Emergency Response Policy

The diocese has asked that each parish and individual worship site to become familiar with the Emergency Response Policy.  This will include simple reminders such as members being familiarized with fire exits and extinguishers, to more in depth procedures for medical and external emergencies and situations where calling 911 is necessary. 
    We are asking for people who have specific training or experience in these areas to let your worship site know.  Experience such as firefighters, EMTs, medical personnel and those who act as First Responders are encouraged to share their knowledge in any capacity.
    There is a sign-up sheet in the vestibule of each of our four churches for people to list your name, training and contact information.  If you are willing to act as First Responders in the parish please sign up. In the coming months we are hopeful to have clear vision of how to handle emergencies should the need arise
