• From the Pastor's Desk
      Dear Parishioners,
       

      In the midst of these summer days, I hope that you are making some time for some time away from your usual routine. Everyone has their own way to relax during this season—going to the Jersey shore, enjoying a day trip to Philadelphia or New York, or just spending quiet time at home. Whatever form your recreation takes, let's not forget to devote some time to prayer and even take in a little spiritual reading.

      Parish life does slow down during the season, but we use it to enhance our two church campuses—those little odd jobs that we just can't get to during the school year. Our summer project is underway—the side doors have been replaced at St. Anthony and we have yet to tackle the work in the sacristy at Our Lady of Sorrows. Your generosity to our appeal is helping us to accomplish this work. Thanks for your goodness!

      On the horizon, we have had to address a few problems for the roof on three buildings at St. Anthony campus—the convent, PACE Charter School (housed in the old grammar school building) and Newgrange School (housed in the "newer" school building). A significant amount of work must be done...but more about that in later bulletins! The paving of the lot, where the old convent once stood, is still in the planning stage. The diocesan office of property and construction is helping us to move this along.
       
       
      God bless you,
      Msgr. Gervasio

        From time to time, it is appropriate to remind our parishioners about a few concerns that fall into the category of "church decorum." These are offered with the sincere hope that they will contribute to a respectful worship and care for the House of God.

        On behalf of my entire family, I wish to offer heartfelt thanks for the many expressions of sympathy on the death of my mother, Orsola. Your kind notes, Mass cards, and telephone and email messages were a great comfort to us at a very difficult time. The Lord bless you for your kindnesses and prayerful remembrance.
