Question of the Week: If you are a lamb, who are the wolves Jesus sends you out to?
Dear Parishioners of OLM & OLS:
With the passing of our celebration of Independence Day, last Thursday, I am beginning to feel as through it is really vacation time. I am leaving for six days in Wildwood Crest after the 10am Mass today at OLM. I will spend next weekend in Maryland with colleagues with whom I used to collaborate in a national pastors’ training process. It will be pleasant to meet with them for relaxation rather than planning! I’ll be back in the office next Tuesday. I’ll take the remainder of my vacation time the last two weeks of August and the first week of September.
I am looking forward to this time of relaxation, as I am sure most of you are also.
Enjoy and be safe!
My love and my prayers,
New information regarding the rental and the use of the Maria Room, the Farley Center and the Monsignor Masiello Gym
Beginning this past July 1st The FARLEY CENTER AND THE MONSIGNOR MASIELLO GYM are no longer available for rental for parties and gatherings. They are now controlled by our new tenants: Starting Points.
THE MARIA ROOM is available for parties and gatherings. The rental rate is a follow: $900 for a four hour rental plus $100 insurance policy payable to the Archdiocese of Newark. There is also a $200 returnable damage deposit. Rental of the Maria Room can be arranged through the Parish Office.
Parish Meetings previously using the Farley Center, the Youth Room, or the Monsignor Masiello Gym will now be held in the former Convent Building. This venue will now be called the Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom Center.
We need your help, please!
Because of some internal upsetment in our Office during the last quarter of 2012 and the first quarter of 2013, some of our sacramental records lack some pertinent information. If you child received the sacrament of Baptism during October, November, or December 2012,
January or February 2013 would you please provide Father Ryan with contact information at BaptismOLM@aol.com. Father Ryan will then confer with you to the accuracy of our records. Thank your for your cooperation and understanding.
