Open Hearts, Willing Hands

Would you like to feel treasured, loved and sincerely appreciated? “Open Hearts, Willing Hands”, a ministry of St. Mary’s parish, helps the elderly and disabled with shopping, simple chores, rides and friendly visits. An hour a week, or every other week, is usually all the time needed. It is amazing how helping another person makes you the one who feels tremendous joy and satisfaction!

Our group is in need of more volunteers. If you are interested or would like more information, please don’t hesitate to contact me . . . Judy Pesce—609-298-5395 (home) or 609-744-5369 (cell).

40 Hours Adoration for the Feast of Christ the King

You are invited and encouraged to spend some time with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. Our world is in need of prayer and we can all see that the spiritual battle is intensifying. In the Blessed Eucharist, Jesus, our Lord and King, is present in His Risen Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity just as He is present in Heaven. Let us give Jesus all glory, honor, and praise forever! Adorers are needed; please contact Ruth Badyrka at 291-0444.

There will be extended hours of adoration of the Blessed Sacrament for the 3 days prior to the feast of Christ the King:

  • Wednesday November 19th: 8AM–9PM (at 3:00 PM a Holy Hour is prayed for our Priests);
  • Thursday November 20th and Friday November 21st: 8AM–9PM
  • Saturday November 22nd: 8AM–3PM (9:00–10:00 praying the Timeless Rosary)
  • Saturday November 22nd: 3PM Benediction

Advent Wreath Workshop – Nov 21st at 7 PM

Advent is not too far away and it’s time to think about building your family Advent wreath. A great tradition during Advent is lighting the Advent wreath candles during family meals. Each week, a new candle is added until we reach Christmas and then the center candle is lit. The children also have a tradition anticipating Christmas by opening a new portion of the Advent calendar each day. The calendar is usually put on your refrigerator.

On Friday November 21st at 7 PM in the school cafeteria the parish is having its annual Advent wreath-building workshop. Thanks to those families who have registered. We look forward to seeing your family and helping you build your own unique Advent wreath. At the workshop you will learn about the Advent season, we’ll sing a few songs, have some refreshments and Father Mike will bless your newly-created Advent wreath. The children will also get an Advent calendar for your fridge. See you at the workshop.  For more info call the parish officer at 298-0265.

Traveling Catholic Faith – November CD

Since this month we celebrate Thanksgiving and we gather as family to be thankful for all God has given us, it seemed appropriate that this month’s subject should be on the family. Father Robert Barron from Word on Fire talks to us about “What Makes a Family Holy”. It is pretty deep, so you will have to keep it in your car’s CD player and listen to it several times. As always the CDs are on the table in the back of the church. If you can’t find any, look next weekend as we replenish them during the week. For more info call the parish office during normal office hours
