TWENTY-FIFTH SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Mk 9:30-37
Jesus and his disciples left from there and began a journey through Galilee,
but he did not wish anyone to know about it.
He was teaching his disciples and telling them,
“The Son of Man is to be handed over to men
and they will kill him,
and three days after his death the Son of Man will rise.”
But they did not understand the saying,
and they were afraid to question him.
They came to Capernaum and, once inside the house,
he began to ask them,
“What were you arguing about on the way?”
But they remained silent.
They had been discussing among themselves on the way
who was the greatest.
Then he sat down, called the Twelve, and said to them,
“If anyone wishes to be first,
he shall be the last of all and the servant of all.”
Taking a child, he placed it in the their midst,
and putting his arms around it, he said to them,
“Whoever receives one child such as this in my name, receives me;
and whoever receives me,
receives not me but the One who sent me.”

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!
