Reaching Out to the “Afflicted & Affected”
A recent conference was given by Catholic Charities addressing the epidemic of addiction affecting us all. We have all seen the heartbreaking statistics which may lead us to a sense of hopelessness.
The most surprising, heartbreaking, statistic given that day was that the majority of people of faith who are either afflicted or affected by addiction stated they never considered reaching out to the church for support. We are all touched by the disease of addiction. Our Pastoral Team may not have a solution, but we may know of some resources you haven’t tried, or you may simply need someone to talk to. Please know, there is no need to suffer alone. Call the Parish Center (631.271.4455) and ask to speak with MaryAnn Giannettino or any member of our clergy
