From Our Pastor Our Pastor's Page
May 19, 2019 
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The new commandment that Jesus gives to his disciples is that we will love one another. This is not a sentimental type of love but a love marked by service and sacrifice. It is a sacrificial love that seeks the good of the other ahead of our own. It is this sacrificial love that led our Lord to accept death on a Cross for our sake and for our salvation. If the Church, the People of God, forsakes this commandment, then the Cross is emptied of its power to heal and redeem.

As our society continues to be unmoored from the teachings of the Gospel, we have experienced a rise in violence and hate speech. Christians must resist the rising tide of intolerance and racism. We belong to Christ and to His Kingdom. Let us put away deeds of darkness and practice the selfless love to which Christ has called us.

In Christ,
Fr. Thomas

2019 Bishop’s Annual Appeal
Help Build a Civilization of Love

To date, 453 parishioners have pledged $140,558 and paid $129,942. Thanks to your generosity, these pledges put us at 81% of our parish goal of $173,000.

Our other goal is for every family to participate. If you have not contributed yet this year, we ask you to prayerfully consider donating to the Bishop's Appeal funding over 25 diocesan and parish ministries that reach a half million people. You can take a Bishop's Appeal envelope in the Church gathering space and return it with your pledge or one-time gift in the collection basket. The Diocese of Metuchen's home page, diometuchen.org, also describes other ways to contribute including online and employer matching gifts.

Every gift, no matter the size, is important and greatly appreciated.

Having trouble hearing in Church?
Hearing Assistance Devices are available in the rear of the Church. The devices cannot be used outside the Church, as they are connected to our Church public address system.

The hearing devices are used by many at daily and Sunday Masses and other Liturgical Celebrations. PLEASE be sure to return them to the box at the back of the Church and also be certain to turn the switch OFF before placing them back into the box.
