Labor Day statement Most Rev. Nicholas DiMarzio, Ph.D., D.D. Bishop of Brooklyn Chairman, Domestic Policy Committee United States Conference of Catholic Bishops

My convictions are shaped by my own history as a grandson of Italian immigrants, and now a bishop and pastor in Brooklyn, one of the most diverse and vibrant dioceses in our Church. I have also served as director of the U.S. bishops’ Office of Migration and Refugee Services. I have seen the daily struggles and dreams of immigrants in my diocese and throughout the country. I understand their desire, shared by my grandparents, to give their children a better life. That is why I believe we must and we can find reasonable and responsible ways to welcome those seeking a new life and opportunity. I believe we can help newcomers without legal status to come out from the shadows and contribute more fully to our communities. When we do this, I believe we can also increase the security of our nation and the vitality of our Church.

The Catholic Church has a long history of involvement with immigrants. Our experience in working with immigrants throughout the years compels us to speak out on the issue of immigration reform, a moral issue which impacts human rights, human life and human dignity. The Church's mission in assisting and standing with immigrants flows from our belief that every person is created in God's image. Indeed, in His own life and work, Jesus called upon us to "welcome the stranger," for "what you do for the least of my brethren, you do unto me." (Mt. cf.

25: 35, 40). This is why the Catholic community has a broad and growing Catholic Campaign for Immigration Reform that we hope will contribute to a constructive debate on immigration.


Attention music lovers: The Columbus Jewish trio Shireinu will present the program “Ten Years of our Favorite Jewish Music from America and beyond” in St. Mary Church on Sunday afternoon October 8 at 2:00pm.  The trio consists of noted local artists: soloist and leader Cindy Leland (eldest daughter of parishioner Bob Hess), flutist Cheri Papier and guitarist Nick Ciranni.  Free-will donations will be welcomed.

St. Ladislas Senior Stars are planning their annual trip to the Shrine of Our Lady of Consolation in Carey, Ohio on Thursday, October 12, 2006. The trip is open to all ages. Cost is $20.00 plus lunch. Leave St. Lad’s by bus at 8:30 a.m. – return by 5:30 p.m. Call Helen Shott (443-3351) or Carolyn Lenihan (497-1633) to join us in a wonderful day of prayer and friendship.

Pray for our men and women in uniform.

Anointing of the Sick: The sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick will take place after all the Masses on the weekends of September 9-10, 16-17, and 23-24. Persons who are ill are encouraged to be anointed at ONE of these occasions. The opportunity is repeated several times so that people do not have to wait in a long line. Father Thomas will talk about the sacrament beforehand. Of course, healthy adults and children should not come forward for this anointing, as Father will explain.

Protecting God’s Children: As part of its protecting God’s Children program, the diocese of Columbus encourages victims of abuse by anyone associated with the Church to report the abuse to the Church and to law enforcement officials. Monsignor Robert Brown, now deceased, has been accused of abuse of a minor while working in the Steubenville diocese. He was a priest of this diocese from 1939 to 1944, and served in the south end of Columbus. Please call our diocesan chancery office at 614-224-2251 if you have facts to report on this matter. Thank you.

Food Pantry Collection: Members of the St. Mary’s Social Concerns Committee will be at the church doors after each Mass September 16-17, and 23-24 to accept your donation of basic shelf-life food such as cereal, peanut butter, canned goods, etc. for the St. Ladislas and Southside Community Ministries. Monetary gifts are also appreciated. If anyone is interested in volunteering at the pantries, please email Kathy Chellis at ( or call 443-1001.
