What is “Giving Tuesday”?

Open Parish Meeting

There will be an Open Meeting for all parishioners to offer input into the appointment of a new Pastor for St. Boniface Martyr Parish.

Bishop Andrej, the Vicar, Fr. Bill Slater from the North Hempstead Deanery and Msgr. Peter Pflomm, Director of Clergy Personnel, will be present to conduct and participate in the meeting on Tuesday, March 10, 2015 at 7pm in the St. Boniface Gym.

Midnight Run

On March 7, 2015, the St. Boniface Youth Group  participate in its Fifth Annual “Midnight Run” to Manhattan.
On Midnight Run, the St. Boniface Youth Group travels to Manhattan in cars loaded with food, clothes and toiletries to meet the homeless on the streets.  I have gone on numerous occasions, and I can tell you from experience that this is a life changing event.  Our youth encounter the homeless, the most needy; not as the detested in our society, but as those in most need of Jesus’ love and compassion.  I thank you for your support and prayers for our youth and for the homeless.  I am so happy that our Youth Group has this opportunity and I am equally pleased that we as a parish share in these blessings.

In Jesus,
Fr. Bob

Midnight Run 2014
What is Midnight Run?
On the Midnight Run, St. Boniface Youth Group members share food, clothing, blankets and personal care items with people living on the streets of New York City.  This is a grace-filled moment where the young people follow the example of Jesus, ministering to the people they will visit and allowing those people to minister to them.   Midnight run provides a forum for trust, sharing, understanding and affection.  That human exchange, rather than the exchange of goods, is the essence of the Midnight Run mission.

Midnight Run forges a bond between people, establishing a foundation of sharing and caring from which solutions to problems may evolve. Participants learn to see the people they visit as real people, not as a commodity. Homeless men and women learn that many housed people, adults and teenagers, have commitments and concerns that go beyond their own lives and families.
