From Our Pastor Our Pastor's Page
January 20, 2019 
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

“There was a Wedding at Cana in Galilee, and the mother of Jesus was there….” With these words Saint John the Evangelist opens one of the most beautiful accounts in the New Testament. Only in the Gospel of John do we encounter the extraordinary miracle of the changing of the water into wine. At the request of His Mother, Jesus performs this miracle that announces the beginning of His public ministry and the Coming of the Reign of God.

At Cana, the new wine that is poured out prefigures the Blood of Christ which will be poured out for our salvation. Our Lady’s complete trust in Her Son is our model for Christian Discipleship. “Do Whatever He tells you,” should be our motto for the New Year 2019.

Next Sunday, January 27th, marks the beginning of Catholic Schools Week. There will be an Open House immediately following the 10am Mass. Breakfast will be served in the Parish Hall. Please come and support our excellent Catholic School.

In Christ,
Fr. Thomas

Lighting a fire in the heart of our world

This Pastoral Letter is a reflection on my pastoral visits to all 90 parishes within our diocese as well as visits to many Catholic schools, institutions and varied ministries and ethnic groups since I became your Shepherd last May. Based on my many conversations with clergy, religious and lay faithful during these months, it shares with you the priorities that emerged and which call for our attention as we go forward in this local Church of Metuchen. It is my hope and prayer that this Pastoral Letter will inspire you through the grace of the Holy Spirit to become kindling so together we can “set a fire in the heart of our world,” allowing God’s love and power to burn more brightly here in Central New Jersey. I look forward to further conversations and planning with you.

St. Bartholomew Church in East Brunswick Hosted Listening Session

On Monday October 22, the parish of St. Bartholomew in East Brunswick hosted a listening session on the current sexual abuse crisis in the Catholic Church. The session was facilitated by Sister Margaret Conlon, Sister of Charity. Sister Conlon has ministered to high school students and families, as a teacher and counselor, in Jersey City for over 20 years. For the last 27 years she has ministered as a Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor at Emmaus House, a holistic center for women religious, in Ocean Grove, New Jersey. Sister Conlon has facilitated programs for suicide prevention for youth as well as groups and retreats for adult women in recovery.

The session began with a history of the crisis and the Church’s response before breaking into small groups to consider four questions. All were encouraged and welcomed to attend. A follow up report from the session will be delivered to the Most Reverend James Francis Checchio, Bishop of Metuchen.
