Dear Brothers and Sisters,

The Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ is celebrated today. Saint John Paul II reminded us that the Church, “does not only celebrate the Eucharist but solemnly bears it in procession, publicly proclaiming that the Sacrifice of Christ is for the salvation of the whole world.” As J.R. Tolkien expressed, “Out of the darkness of my life, so much frustrated, I put before you the one great thing to love on earth, the Blessed Sacrament, there you will find romance, glory, honor, and the true way of all your loves on earth.” “O Sacrament of Love, O Sign of Unity, O Bond of Charity!” (St. Augustine)

Bishop Cheechio has made the following appointments of Parochial Vicars:

Rev. James DeFillipps, from Parochial Vicar, St. Peter the Apostle University and Community Parish, New Brunswick, to Parochial Vicar, St. Bartholomew Parish, East Brunswick, effective July 8th.

Rev. Dario Endiape, from Parochial Vicar, St. Bartholomew Parish, East Brunswick to Parochial Vicar, St. Peter the Apostle University and Community Parish, New Brunswick, effective July 8th.

I want to express my gratitude for Fr. Dario’s priestly ministry to our parish community. Fr. Dario will celebrate the Noon Mass on Sunday, July 7th. . After the Mass there will be a reception in the Parish Hall. Please keep Father in your prayers during this time of transition.

In Christ Jesus,
Fr. Thomas
