From the Pastor's Desk
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
The Feast of Pentecost is sometimes called the birthday of the Church because on this day the Apostles and Disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and went forth to proclaim the Gospel. Today it is my privilege to confirm two of our parishioners with the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Cecilia Palm and Eileen Kerekes will receive the Sacrament of Confirmation at the 10 am Mass. Confirmation completes their initiation into the Catholic Faith. Congratulations!
Last week our sister parish of Our Lady of Lourdes, in Milltown, announced the closing of their Catholic School at the end of this current school year. I have spoken with Sr. Elizabeth, the school principal, and with her permission have invited all of their students to enroll in our school. It is my hope that we will work together to build a flourishing Catholic School that will reflect the best of both of our communities. We will be accepting registrations throughout the spring and summer. The school office can be reached at 732-254-7105.
During the month of May let us continue to pray the rosary for peace in the world and for the intentions of our Holy Father, Pope Francis. Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
