St. Vincent de Paul Society First Communion Project

We are partnering again with our SVDP Pantry in Perth Amboyfor their annual First Communion Project. Low incomefamilies in the Perth Amboy area rely on the pantry for manyneeds. Some families that have children preparing to receive First Communion cannot afford Communion oufiits and accessories for their children. The pantry provides these based on donations from our local SVDP Conferences.

If you can help with gently used First Communion oufiits orother First Communion accessories, please bring them tochurch on the weekend of March 10‐11. Monetary donations are also welcome. Members of our SVDP Conference will be in the Narthex to collect the items. We can also bereached at 732-597-1507 or by email at if you have questions.

As always, we thank you for your generosity.

Decision Making

Making decisions is not always easy. Sometimes we have second thoughts about what we are doing. Sometimes we hesitate, waver. Sometimes we need to affirm a choice we have already made. So it is with God's call to come closer to him. Maybe we are eager to respond but afraid that there will be a price to be paid. Perhaps we may just want to maintain the status quo because we are unwilling to invest the energy and time that it would require. Do you or someone you know hear God calling to come closer? Typically, the call from God is indicated in the desires and hopes of our hearts. The RCIA Inquiry Sessions are opportunities to gather, ask, learn, pray, ponder and discern. We invite all who are unbaptized, baptized into another Christian denomination, or baptized Catholic but have not received BOTH Sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist. For more information call RCIA at 732-562-1990 x 163
