LOCKS OF LOVE: Thanks to your help OSP donated 150 locks to Covenant House to be used by the youth to lock up their belongings. In the past Covenant House relied on the individuals to provide their own locks. Now they are developing an inventory system so they can loan them to the young adults. This was an immediate need that Covenant House had and will ease a lot of the stress caused to staff and residents around missing and stolen items.
YOUR OPINION IS NEEDED:
The Archdiocese of New York recently released a survey to collect input from the faithful on topics that will be discussed in the upcoming Ordinary Synod on the Vocation of the Family in the Church and the Contemporary World (October 2015). The questions contained in the survey cover a diverse set of issues; issues that were discussed in the Extraordinary Synod called upon by Pope Francis in 2014. Among the issues addressed was the pastoral care of members of the LGBT community. We invite you to pray, reflect, and provide voice to these issues by answering the Archdiocese's questionnaire. This may be found here - http://nyfamilylife.org/synod/.
