concern and selfless devotion of those who would commit their energies
and purpose to the ministry of others; and
WHEREAS, It is the sense of this Legislative Body to bring full recog-
nition and just tribute to those individuals who distinguish themselves
and the ministry through their unremitting commitment and preeminence of
service; and
WHEREAS, This Legislative Body is justly proud to honor Monsignor
William Breslawski upon the occasion of celebrating his final public
Mass as Pastor of Our Lady of Peace; this momentous occasion will be
held on Sunday, June 22, 2014, followed by a Reception in his honor in
the Father Larry Penzes Auditorium, Lynbrook, New York; and
WHEREAS, Monsignor William Breslawski is being recognized for his
exemplary work and commitment to his community, which serves to empower

ing as its Pastor since November of 2002; and
WHEREAS, True to his spirit of making himself available to people in
need, Monsignor William Breslawski answered the call when Bishop William
Murphy asked him in early September of 2002 to lead a parish that was
recovering from the shock of losing its pastor and parishioner; and
WHEREAS, Monsignor William Breslawski came to Our Lady of Peace after
spending 15 years as one of the Founding Pastors of the Parish of the

vidual for the edification of others; now, therefore, be it
