After five years as the Associate Pastor at Church of Saint Mary in Manhasset, Father Allan Sikorski is heading east to his next assignment, at Saint Matthew’s Roman Catholic Church in Dix Hills. He celebrated his last Mass at Saint Mary’s on Sunday, June 23 and expressed much gratitude and affection for the many parishioners who helped to make his first priestly assignment memorable. During the well-attended service and standing-room-only reception in the Marian Room that followed, Father Sikorksi spoke warmly of his time at St. Mary’s. Dozens of parishioners lined up for over an hour to speak with him and take pictures. Father Sikorski’s replacement will be Father Christopher Costigan, who comes from Saint Bernard’s Church in Levittown.
“What’s been given as a gift, you give as a gift.” This is the philosophy by which Sister Maria Regina Loures runs the Our Lady of Grace spiritual center.
The center was given as a gift to the sisters of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the 1940s. In her six years as a spiritual administrator, Sister Maria Regina worked hard to make the center more than just a retreat house. She put her efforts into making it a spiritual center, which offers people of all religions more than just retreats.
Under a blue sky, as the setting sun washed orange and pink tones across the horizon, Manhasset High School celebrated its 93rd commencement, on June 21. Proud family and friends filled the audience, while members of the graduating class made their way to the grandstand eager to start the next chapter in their lives.
“We are so excited and the journey is just beginning!” exclaimed Stacey and Peter Burger, parents of graduating senior Cameron. It was clear from the sunny faces in the audience that many felt the excitement of the bright future for these graduates.
When preparing for a wedding, most brides like to be on top of every little detail. Those who have been involved in planning a wedding, or watch shows like TLC’s Say Yes to the Dress, know that the dress can make or break the bride’s vision of her perfect day. It’s crucial to have the guidance of a wedding designer who knows and loves all things bridal. At her recently opened bridal couture house on Manhasset’s Miracle Mile, designer Karen Sabag works with brides, helping them find the perfect dress for any wedding event.
When it comes to gowns, Sabag’s philosophy rings true for brides everywhere: A wedding is a rare, one-of-a-kind occasion that calls for a one-of-a-kind dress. The level of artistry and careful detail that goes into a wedding dress, Sabag said, is not typical of everyday wear. “I’m known for fabrication and details and big things—you can’t wear details and big things [in] everyday life.”

Across Nassau County, residents are reacting with a mix of surprise, empathy, and appreciation to the Nassau County District Attorney’s recent arrests of more than 100 men for soliciting prostitutes, including three Manhasset residents ranging in age from 22 to 79.
The DA’s office not only arrested the men, but made public their names and photographs. That, some feel, was an invasion of privacy, while others feel that the men should take responsibility for their actions, and their neighbors have a right to know what type of people surround them.
