Marriage Appreciation Event – Nov 8th

The United States Council of Catholic Bishops has set aside this year to honor those who have received or are about to receive the sacrament of marriage. Our parish has set aside Saturday November 8th to do just that.  The event is from 9 AM to 12 noon.  Babysitting will be provided. During the event we will do several things to honor those couples who are living their Catholic faith thru the sacrament of marriage, including ending with a light lunch.  Please signup for the event in the back of the church under the poster for the event, on line below, or by calling the office at 298-0265.  We just need to know how much food to prepare.  Please set aside the morning of Nov 8th and let us as a parish honor you for your daily commitment to each other and the Sacrament of Marriage.  For more info call Earl Alger at 298-7071.

Parts of the Mass Study – Oct 27th

The parish is having a 4 week study on the Parts of the Mass. It will start on Monday Oct 27th at 7 PM in the school cafeteria.  The study will continue every Monday for 4 weeks ending November 17th.  Each night we will watch a 15 – 20 min video by Jeff Cavins on parts of the Mass. After the video we will break for refreshments and then continue as small groups discussing questions from the workbook.  This study will open your eyes to every part of the Mass we celebrate as a Catholic community.  The cost of the 4 week study is $5 and can be paid the first night of the study.  This will help cover the cost of the refreshments, videos and workbooks.  To register for the study, fill out the form below. You must register no later than Oct 20th.  Come to the study and really learn about the great gift we have as Catholics – The Holy Mass.

Traveling Faith – Oct 2014 – Power of the Rosary

This month’s Traveling Faith CD is on the Power and Promises of the Rosary. Since Oct 7th is the memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary, it seemed only fitting to have a talk on the Rosary available for the parish to listen to in their cars as they travel around this great state of New Jersey. Once again you can find them on the table at the back of the church. We will replenish them all month, so if there are none when you check at the table, check back again next week and there should be more. For more info call the parish office during normal office hours at 298-0265.
