Sisters Give Bishop Dominican Welcome February 13, 2017

A very heartfelt welcome was given to our new diocesan shepherd of Long Island, Bishop John Barres, at the celebration of the World Day for Consecrated Life this past Sunday, February 5, 2017, at St. Agnes Cathedral in Rockville Centre. “It was a day full of hope and promise,” said Sister Carolann Masone, OP, who was one of more than 25 Sisters of St. Dominic of Amityville who attended the event. She described the afternoon as a day of renewal filled with joy and hope for Religious and the Church.

At the Mass, Bishop Barres addressed the young people and told them to look at the Sisters and Brothers who have given their lives for the sake of the Gospel and the mission of the Church. “You stand on their shoulders,” Sister Carolann recalled the Bishop said. At the reception afterward, the Amityville Dominicans — carrying the thoughts and prayers of all our Sisters — surrounded the Bishop and sang the Dominican blessing. He told Sister Carolann, “I will never forget what you just did.”
