NINETEENTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Jn 6:41-51
The Jews murmured about Jesus because he said,
"I am the bread that came down from heaven, "
and they said,
"Is this not Jesus, the son of Joseph?
Do we not know his father and mother?
Then how can he say,
'I have come down from heaven'?"
Jesus answered and said to them,
"Stop murmuring among yourselves.
No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draw him,
and I will raise him on the last day.
It is written in the prophets:
They shall all be taught by God.
Everyone who listens to my Father and learns from him comes to me.
Not that anyone has seen the Father
except the one who is from God;
he has seen the Father.
Amen, amen, I say to you,
whoever believes has eternal life.
I am the bread of life.
Your ancestors ate the manna in the desert, but they died;
this is the bread that comes down from heaven
so that one may eat it and not die.
I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give is my flesh for the life of the world."

PARISH ANNOUNCEMENTS

18TH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - AUGUST 5, 2018

IMPORTANT Summer Mass Schedule. Changes are made to accommodate smaller attendance and better make use of the priestly manpower. During Summer Schedule we will have one Vigil Mass at 5:00PM at Sacred Heart. As we did last year, 8:30AM Mass at Sacred Heart and the 10:30AM Mass at Christ the King have been eliminated.

Monday – Transfiguration of the Lord
Tuesday – St. Sixtus II & Companions; St. Cajetan
Wednesday – St. Dominic
Thursday – St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross
Friday – St. Lawrence
Saturday – St. Clare

Everyone going on the Dorney Park trip on Monday, please be here at 8:30am.

There will be a Walking Pilgrimage to Doylestown from August 10th to the 13th. For more info go to our website.

If anyone took a sign to advertise our festival, please return it to the parish office or drop it off in the vestibule. We would like to reuse them next year. If the sign has been damaged, return the stand.

Also, don’t forget to return your cash raffle books. Additional books are available at the parish office if you feel you can sell more.

Because of the fact that we will not be getting a replacements for Fr. Marcin, the Summer schedule will become the year-round schedule. All Mass intentions already scheduled will be said on the day they were scheduled.

We have had to replace the air-conditioning in Sacred Heart Church. If anyone would like to contribute to the cost of this replacement it would help a great deal with this expense.

Thank you for your contributions. Last week, our collections totaled $9,171. The second collection will be for Youth and New Evangelization. Please be generous.

FROM THE PASTOR'S DESK

Dear Friends,

Summer time. It is getting a little warmer and things move a little slower under the hot, summer sun. But not at Christ the Redeemer! Our Parish Calendar is filled with events, e.g.

July 4th - Patriotic Rosary

July 9-13 - Summer Camp

July 15 - Patronal Parish Feast of Christ the Redeemer

July 22 – Bicycle/motorbike Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Czestochowa Doylestown, PA

July 24-28 – 50th Parish Summer Festival

August 6 - Altar Servers' and Children's Choir Trip to Dorney Park

August 9-12 - Walking Pilgrimage to Our Lady of Czestochowa Doylestown, PA

These are just some of the annual events that we need you to support to continue to make our Parish one faithful community. Please help us to make all the above activities a wonderful experience of faith, friendship and love. In particular, we need your physical help and financial support for our 50th Parish Summer Festival which is our largest fundraising event – especially before, during and after the Festival. We particularly appeal to our younger adults. We need your help too - work in the stands - sell 50/50 tickets - work in the kitchen - set up tables and chairs - clean the grounds and outdoor and indoor kitchens. So, won't you please take an active role in this year's 50th Parish Festival and volunteer? Call the Parish Office at 908 725-0072 NOW!!! The revenues generated by the Parish Summer Festival are critical to supporting the parish budget.

Thank you to those who "Took the Step" of increasing their weekly contribution which is responsible for a modest increase in our Sunday collection. These contributions REALLY make a difference. Unfortunately, we are still operating in the RED and the regular offerings do not meet our parish expenses; and once again we had to reach into our investment accounts to pay the normal bills and the needed upgrade to the heating and cooling system at CTK School and the AC system at Sacred Heart Church. In addition to the traditional way of giving at CTR Parish we also offer online giving. With ConnectNow you can even set up payments in advance! This enables you to meet your financial obligation to your parish even while away on vacation.And when you give online, it helps us close the budget gap even when summer attendance is low. Visit www.ctrmanville for the online giving link.

As you are enjoying all that the summer has to offer, please remember the church. It never takes a season off and is always here for you. So please keep Christ the Redeemer Parish in mind during your summer travels. I hope you encounter wonders as you wander, inspiration to go along with a deep sense of God's love as you revel in God's gift of creation.

God bless you!

Fr.Stan
