“The impious in heart lay up anger; they do not cry for help when he binds them…” (Job 36:13)

Will I cry for help to my creator when the abyss of hell pulls at me to enter its eternal darkness or will my anger and pride keep me silent, sealing my faith forever?

This week’s Tip of the Tablet Talk Top Hat goes to Philip Saffian from Mrs. Jennifer McComiskey’s second grade class at Holy Family Catholic Academy in Fresh Meadows!


He is the New York State winner of the Zaner-Bloser Handwriting Competition for second grade. About 280,000 children compete in this contest. Now onto the National Level, Good Luck Philip!

St. Thomas Aquinas parish in Flatlands put on a great big baby shower benefiting the Bridge for Life and the Sisters of Life. The Confirmation students gave out the tags and bottles during Lent asking the parishioners to participate in this year’s Lenten project. They were also the servers at the baby shower. The knitting club made more than 100 blankets and hats.
