THE SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY

Jn 16, 12-15
Jesus said to his disciples:
"I have much more to tell you, but you cannot bear it now.
But when he comes, the Spirit of truth,
he will guide you to all truth.
He will not speak on his own,
but he will speak what he hears,
and will declare to you the things that are coming.
He will glorify me,
because he will take from what is mine and declare it to you.
Everything that the Father has is mine;
for this reason I told you that he will take from what is mine
and declare it to you."

PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTS

THE MOST HOLY TRINITY - JUNE 16, 2019

Wednesday – St. Romuald
Friday – St. Aloysius Gonzaga
Saturday – Paulinus of Nolas; Sts John Fisher & Thomas More

Happy Father’s Day to all the fathers here today!

Next Sunday, on the Feast of Corpus Christi, our procession will again take place from Sacred Heart Church down Main Street to Christ the King Church. This will necessitate a change in the Mass schedule for that day. The 7:00AM Mass in Sacred Heart will be cancelled. There will be a solemn 8:00AM Mass in Sacred Heart followed by the Corpus Christi procession . The 10:30AM Mass in Christ the King will be changed to 10:00AM and the 11:30AM Mass in Sacred Heart will take place as usual. All children who received First Communion (please wear your First Communion attire) and Confirmation this year are to take part in the procession. Children are to be in the Sacred Heart auditorium at 7:45AM. Please mark your calendars to be present for this celebration.
And speaking of Corpus Christi, if you would collect petals from your flower garden, put them in a plastic bag, refrigerate and bring them for the procession.

We need help pierogi-making for the Summer Festival on Tuesday at 9AM for the filling and 6PM for pinching. Please come and help.

There is a Mission Appeal envelope in your package of envelopes. That collection will take place on the weekend of August 10th & 11th.

For men considering a vocation as a deacon, the Diocese is holding an information night for the men and their wives on Tuesday, June 25, at the Diocesan Center on Metlars Lane, Piscataway, 7:30 PM.

As the warm weather approaches, please dress appropriately, be on time and stay until the priest processes out at the end of Mass.

Thank you for your contributions. Last week, our collections totaled $11,126.00. The second collection today will be the Father’s Day collection. Please be generous.

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

“This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad”

Dear Parishioners,

“This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad.” This well-known psalm refrain is very suitable for Easter because the joy of Easter fills the hearts of the disciples of Jesus Christ. Why do we rejoice on Easter? The answer is because Easter is the celebration of the Resurrection of the Lord who conquered sin and death. Our Easter faith that we celebrate every Sunday tells us that this earthly life is a prelude, a preparation for the gift of eternal life to come.

Easter is an opportunity to give thanks to God for all of God’s blessings. It is an invitation to consider the truth and the mystery, how the risen Christ is present to us and how we are present to Him. It is all too easy to take for granted the blessings we enjoy in our lives, our community, our church, our families, unless we pause and reflect on the truth we celebrate today.

The centennial celebration of the Roman Catholic Parish Life in Manville fills us with pride for the past years and concerns about our future. Therefore, we should always remember that “In Christ the Redeemer we are ONE”. Let us continue to grow in love for the Lord every day and pray for one another as we journey together to an ever-deeper faith and reawaken faith in those whose faith is in slumber.

In the Risen Lord Jesus,

Fr.Stan
