Bishop John Barres visited the parish elementary and high schools at St. Dominic’s in Oyster Bay and celebrated Mass with the high school community on Thursday, October 25.

The bishop asked the high school seniors to make a commitment now, as they ready to go to college next year, to be radically faithful to the Catholic Mass. He encouraged them to make the decision, in the presence of the pastor and school community, to say “Yes, I do believe that you, Jesus, are the center of my life.”

Before Mass, the bishop visited several classrooms.  After Mass, he took photos with some of the high school sports teams before spending time talking with student leaders at the high school. He also visited the new science building.
