Here are just a few of the many people's lives that +Fr. Connery impacted during his 17 years as our Pastor.  We are all better for having known him.  Rest in Peace Fr. Tom.

We would love to add additional pictures to this slideshow.  If you have a photo to add, please email it to Christine Goss at cicyouth@nycap.rr.com

 

A few people have gotten emails that appear to be from Father Jerry. The email apparently asks for non-specific help and says to respond to him quickly. THE EMAILS ARE NOT FROM FATHER JERRY!

Please do not reply. Please report as spam to your email provider.

This statement was issued by Cardinal DiNardo, president of the US Catholic Bishops Conference. Bishop Scharfenberger asks that we share it with our community.

   
   "At its core, asylum is an instrument to preserve the right to life. The Attorney General's recent decision elicits deep concern because it potentially strips asylum from many women who lack adequate protection. These vulnerable women will now face return to the extreme dangers of domestic violence in their home country. This decision negates decades of precedents that have provided protection to women fleeing domestic violence. Unless overturned, the decision will erode the capacity of asylum to save lives, particularly in cases that involve asylum seekers who are persecuted by private actors. We urge courts and policy makers to respect and enhance, not erode, the potential of our asylum system to preserve and protect the right to life.

        “Additionally, I join Bishop Joe Vásquez, Chairman of USCCB's Committee on Migration, in condemning the continued use of family separation at the U.S./Mexico border as an implementation of the Administration's zero tolerance policy. Our government has the discretion in our laws to ensure that young children are not separated from their parents and exposed to irreparable harm and trauma. Families are the foundational element of our society and they must be able to stay together. While protecting our borders is important, we can and must do better as a government, and as a society, to find other ways to ensure that safety. Separating babies from their mothers is not the answer and is immoral."
