From Our Pastor Our Pastor's Page
August 18, 2019 
Dear Brothers and Sisters,

“I have come to set the earth on fire.” Pope Benedict XVI wrote that the fire is Christ’s own Passion of Love, “a fire that is to be handed on. Whoever comes close to Christ must be prepared to be burned. This is a fire that makes things bright and pure and free and grand. Being a Christian, then, is daring to entrust oneself to this burning fire.” The fire of God’s love consumes us when we desire to live a life centered on Christ and the Gospel. The spiritual life, then, becomes a loving response to the passionate love of God for us in Christ. Most Christians have a lukewarm response to God’s invitation and are unaware of the riches of grace that are given to those who respond in love. There is always time to begin again....

Let us continue to pray for one another.

In Christ,
Father Thomas

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

To date, 517 parish households have pledged $163,591 and paid $163,601. Thanks very much for these pledges which put us at 95% 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.
