St. Vincent de Paul Society Food Drive

Saturday & Sunday April 27th and 28th

The monthly St. Vincent dePaul Society food drive will not be held on the third weekend in April due to the Easter Holiday. We will be accepting donations on the weekend of April 27 & 28. We ask that you do not bring food to the Narthax or cafeteria on Easter Weekend. We appreciate all those parishioners who remember us every month.

The pantry is in need of the following items:

Apple Juice, coffee, tea, cereal, jelly, oatmeal (regular), toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, dish detergent, laundry detergent, aluminum foil, plastic wrap, soap, pasta sauce, jell/jam, applesauce, canned fruit, canned pasta, tuna, mayonnaise, deodorant, shampoo.

Please check the expiration date of your donations as we cannot use expired food. 

We appreciate any support in terms of food or monetary donations that you can give us. Please refrain from leaving food donations in the Narthax or the school cafeteria at other times of the month. If you have a donation that cannot wait until our regular monthly collection, please call the SVDP hotline at 732-257-1507 or contact Debbie Wagner at As always, we are truly grateful for the parish’s support of our work with the poor. Thank you for your generosity.

We wish to give a special “Thank You” to the local Girl Scouts who gave us a generous donation of food in March. We truly appreciate the support of our local community!

Call for Bible Study Group

I am looking to form a spiritually based women’s group that will be modeled after the program developed by Lisa Brenninkmeyer called Walking With A Purpose. The mission of Walking With A Purpose is to transform the hearts and lives of women by providing Bible studies that enable women to know Christ through Scripture and the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church.

I would like to form a small group 6 to 10 woman - perhaps between the ages of 40 & 65 in my East Brunswick office. Depending upon the response, the group could be in the morning, afternoon or evening. Initially, I would like to start with the series Fearless and Free which meets for 6 weeks in succession. Although there would be no cost for the program, each woman would need to purchase the book that corresponds with the study.

A summary of the study as well as the opportunity to purchase the book can be found at under the heading Bible Study and then Adult Women. If interested in the group and to find out additional information, please email me at or call 732-390-6809.

Remember the Magic of Prom?

Together, let’s help someone else’s Prom/Semi-Formal dream come true! Do you have a prom dress, semi-formal dress, or boy’s formal wear hanging in the closet?

The East Brunswick Education Association has made it possible for those who would have trouble obtaining formal wear to be able to see their dream become a reality. Your donated dress, formal wear, and accessories will be made available for an East Brunswick Senior to select for their magical night at this year’s Prom - or available for a Churchill Junior High School Freshman to wear to their Semi-Formal.

To make things as easy as possible to participate, Deacon John Broehl will gladly arrange for your formal wear donation to be picked up directly from your home. Your donation will be organized and prepared so that it will be available to East Brunswick students.

That night you or your child spent at Prom/Semi-Formal capped off a period of their life with a magical evening of excitement, friends, laughter and dancing…

Help other’s experience the same magic that you and/or your child have…

Call 732-214-0953 or email to schedule a pickup.

Here’s the making the lives of our youth… magical. 

Deacon John H. Broehl
