SOUP MAKERS FOR THE HOMELESS
The Soup Makers for the Homeless Ministry is planning to again invite our parish to come together to prepare chicken vegetable soup for Joseph's House of Camden. Year round they provide a simple evening meal to 75+ homeless men and women, along with a warm, safe place to stay.
Please mark this day: Saturday March 25th
We will be coming together to make the soup. There will be two groups, stock makers at 9:00am and soup makers at 11:00am. Also, on Saturday March 25th from 8:00pm to 10:30pm, some adult parishioners will travel together to serve the soup to the homeless at Joseph House. There will be sign-up sheets in the back of church following each Mass the weekend of March 4th and March 18th. Please save this date and consider joining in this very worthy Lenten activity.
If you have any questions please contact Maryanne Hanger at 609-560-4437 or 856-541-6225.

Steward's Light Shine
"Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." MATTHEW 5:16
The generosity of being a good Steward of your gifts has a positive effect on people and it is contagious! Good works encourages more good works. Let your light shine! Be careful to recognize that God is working through you and don't put yourself above the people you have been called to help.
Religious Education registration forms are at the Parish House from 9:00am to 4:00pm during the week or by calling the Religious Education Office at 661-9489.
As you are aware, we have initiated a parish synod here at Mary, Queen of All Saints. A synod is an assembly of church leaders gathered to address important issues. In our case, it is the pressing issue of weekend Mass attendance, a problem facing Churches around the country.
We meet every 2nd and 4th Monday of the month for 30 minutes of prayer, song and meditation in church, and then move to the hall for one hour of breakout dialogue sessions. All members of our parish organizations are urged to attend, and any interested parishioner is also welcome to participate. If you do not belong to a parish organization and wish to participate, please call the rectory.
The objective of this phase of the parish synod is to pray to the Holy Spirit for guidance and to collaborate as an entire parish through sincere dialogue in order to generate a plan of action.
I will keep you abreast of all developments, and reports about the synod will be posted in the bulletin. Please pray for the blessings of God upon our synod and our parish.
FISHES & LOAVES FOOD PANTRY
As the cold weather takes hold our food pantry could use donations of canned soup, stews, hot chocolate, instant oatmeal and also jelly. We accept all non-perishable items and donations can be left in the pantry box at the church
NEED SACRAMENTS OR INTERESTED IN THE CATHOLIC FAITH?
Perhaps you have been coming to Mass with a relative or friend and have considered becoming Catholic. Perhaps you did not receive all of your Sacraments as a child in the normal course. Perhaps you know someone like this that is spiritually searching? We have just the right program for you! It is called the Rite of Christian for Adults (R.C.I.A.).
Any adult can investigate and proceed to prepare for the reception of the Sacraments in the Catholic Church in a personal and relaxed manner through this program. Please call the rectory for more information.
INCREASED CONFESSION HOURS
Confessions in both English and Spanish are offered Saturdays, after the 4:30pm Mass until the 6:30pm Mass and again after the 6:30pm. Confessions are also offered in English as usual from 3:30pm until 4:30pm Mass.
