In parishes around the diocese, Catholics are spending time in adoration before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament to mark the close of the Year of Faith.  On the first day, Nov. 24, photographer Gregory A. Shemitz captured some moments  at Our Lady of Fatima, Manorhaven; St. Kilian, Farmingdale; St. Agnes Cathedral, Rockville Centre, and St. Anne, Garden City. See slideshow below and check back for more photos from each day. (Hover mouse over dots under photos for captions.)
