ISLAND PARK, New York — The pastor at Sacred Heart Church in Island Park urged parishioners not to fret about the material goods they have lost despite the church being in an area of the Diocese of Rockville Centre, among the most devastated by Hurricane Sandy.
“Don’t be angry. We lost stuff. We will get other stuff,” Msgr. John Tutone, pastor, told the congregation during his homily at Sunday Mass Nov. 4. “We still have each other and the people we love. That’s the most important thing.”
