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.”

This is just a reminder that our diocesan assessment and property insurance bills of $350,000 still have to be paid. Please take a step and give generously to these two collections. If possible, please increase your weekly offering by 20% or more.

In early October, we will begin the “Burning Questions” program – a back-to-basics program designed to provide information/clarification of our catholic faith/theology/traditions. For about ten minutes before each Mass, the priest/deacon will review a variety of topics for the ongoing spiritual growth of all.

Are there specific topics you would like to be clarified or learn more about, such as: the sacraments, moral issues, confession, the Mass, etc.? This is your opportunity to refresh/expand your knowledge of the catholic faith/theology/traditions. Please submit your questions or specific topics of interest in the Sunday collection basket or mail to (PO Box 924, Manville, NJ 08835) or drop off at parish office (98 S. Second Ave.) or email to pastor@CTRmanville.com For questions/concerns call the office at 908-725-0072.

The Parish Pastoral Council has developed a survey to learn about your satisfaction with parish life, ministry needs, and how we can become an even more vibrant parish community.

This short survey contains only 6 questions and should take only a few minutes of your time to complete.

PARISH SURVEY

We encourage everyone in the family to complete a form and return it no later than September 3. This will give us a perspective of the needs of all our parishioners.

You can respond anonymously; however, if you are requesting information, your contact information is required.

Please take this request seriously and be part of the effort to create a more vibrant, holy parish. May the Holy Spirit guide you in your response.

MEGA RAFFLE

We have reached the point where we can see a glimmer of light at the end of the COVID pandemic tunnel; and we hope and pray that in the next few months ahead, we will see more normalcy return to our lives.

As churches begin to reopen to their full size capacity, as people return to their workplaces, we know that like our parish, many still suffer financially. Because of the decrease in revenues due to covid-related cancellations of fund-raising activities and a significant decrease in weekly and other offerings, the success of our Annual Mega Raffle is critical to help improve our bleak financial picture. Your parish is in need of your support of our Annual Mega Raffle to reach our sales goal of 2,000 tickets.

The price of a ticket is $25.00 and with total sales of 2,000 tickets, the 25 payouts will be $5,000, $3,750 and $2,500 for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd prizes respectively, and a maximum payout of $625 to each of the remaining 22 winners. The parish could realize revenues of $25,000, but only with your help and support. The Mega Raffle drawing will take place at Christ the King School on October 10 at 3 PM. Last year, with your help, we were able to sell 1,540 tickets bringing in $19,250 for our Parish.

We once again turn to you for your continued generosity. Please consider setting aside a few extra dollars to support this fund-raising event. Tickets can be ordered by completing the MEGA RAFFLE FORM and returning it with your payment to the Parish Office before October 2, 2021. Tickets can also be purchased through the ONLINE GIVING.
