If You Love to knit and crochet, please feel free to Join us for Lent to Help others.
For the Lenten Season on Monday Mornings from 10:00 AM to 12:00 Noon there will be a group of Ladies meeting in the Convent who enjoy Knitting and Crocheting. All the items (Hats, scarves, mittens sweaters etc.) created will be donated to charity.
If You love to knit and /or crochet please feel free to join us!
Just show up no need to call in advance. A way to help others –this Lent and make new friends.
We will be collecting gift cards for supermarkets this year once again as a part of our Lenten almsgiving. This is going to be very specific: We ask if you would like to participate, please restrict your gift cards to these supermarkets: Stop and Shop, and Shoprite. (these supermarkets are convenient to those who will be helped by your donation of a card(s). There will be a box available in the church in which to drop the cards when you come to Mass or you may bring them to the rectory office.
We do not want non-perishable food left in the back of the Church as is done at Thanksgiving—this presents a problem of transport and extra maintenance supervision.
Your gift of food is appreciated in the form of a gift card and makes it much easier for those who receive it to buy the food they so desperately need.
As you know this has been a bad flu season. Bishop DiMarzio has decided to take some steps to safeguard the People of God.
The Bishop has mandated that we not distribute the precious Blood to people at Mass. This suspension will be lifted upon conclusion of the flu season.
In addition, all are asked to exchange sign of peace by a bow to each other while saying “Peace be with you”. It is also strongly suggested that if you experience the flu that you not attend Mass until you are well again.
May the lord continue to bless you and grant us all good health!
