From the Pastor's Desk
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
These are extraordinary times to be a Roman Catholic. Our beloved Holy Father, Pope Francis, has called upon all Christians to renew their dedication to Jesus Christ. Through his recent Apostolic Exhortation, "The Joy of the Gospel," he reminds Christians of their obligation to go out into the streets to make Christ known and loved. Now in preparation for next year's Synod on the Family, which will take place in Rome next October, the Pope is asking for all Catholics to complete a survey on issues surrounding Family Life. You will find this survey on the Diocese of Metuchen web site. ... The survey may be found at http://diometuchen.org/survey-for-the-synod-on-families. May I request that you prayerfully consider your own experience of living the faith today. Please be candid in your response. This is a wonderful opportunity to voice your opinion on the moral issues confronting families today.
As we continue our Advent journey let us continue to pray for one another, "Come, Lord Jesus!"
