Bishop Sullivan has initiated a campaign "Catholic Strong" that invests our time, talent and treasure to build up the Catholic faith in the Diocese of
This diocesan-wide effort is not so much about bricks and mortar but rather about the flesh and blood of our parishes, Catholic schools and ministries of our missionary Church. Catholic Strong is not a campaign focused only raising funds for the Diocese of Camden, but the major focus is on raising funds for each parish. 70% of all funds raised in each parish will stay in the parish.
During the first part of 2018, 30 parishes have been conducting the Catholic Strong campaign. Our parish will begin the Catholic Strong campaign in September.
Bishop Sullivan is sending a letter to every parishioner this week. I ask you to read it to be informed about Catholic Strong campaign.

"Be doers of the word and not hearers only…" (JAMES 1:22)
It is easy to understand the definition of Stewardship. The hard part is living it! What do you do to live God's word? Do you share your time in prayer with God? Do you use your talent to help those in need? Are you generous with your financial resources? If not, what are you waiting for?
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.
FISHES & LOAVES FOOD PANTRY

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.
