The Children's Liturgy of the Word will start again in September. Help is needed just a couple Sundays during the year. If you love working with children, the Liturgy is a rewarding and fun way to teach them about our faith.
Deacon Peter conveyed it perfectly at Mass a couple of weeks ago during his Sermon. “The only way we can save this country is to lift it up, just like the Samaritan lifted up the beaten man. In the parable, the Samaritan not only tended to the immediate wounds and needs of the beaten man, he also gave the innkeeper two silver coins for his continued care and attention. We need to do the same thing by passing down our faith and Christian values to our children. We need to teach our children respect for life and for each other. We need to teach by our example and show them that we have the courage so that they will also have the courage to stand up for what is right. OUR children represent the two silver coins that will care for this country when we are gone.”
If you are interested in helping with this ministry, please contact Lynn Biviano at 908-822-2337 or email@example.com. Thank you and God Bless.

On April 11, 2015, Divine Mercy Sunday, Pope Francis officially announced the Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy, which began on December 8, 2015, and will conclude on November 20, 2016. During this time, we are called to remember that God ‘never tires of throwing open the doors of his heart’ to us and that we, in turn, have a responsibility to be ‘heralds of mercy’ to others, especially through our practice of the Corporal and Spiritual Works of Mercy.
