The Light is on for You
during the YEAR OF FAITH
Pope Benedict XVI declared
The Year of Faith
beginning on October 11, 2012 and ending on November 24, 2013. Inconjunction with the special focus of this year, Archbishop Myers has outlined the program titled “The Light is on for You”. It seeks to enrich and reinvigorate Catholics and draw people back to the faith by entering into a closer relation-ship with Christ through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.On all of the Wednesdays of Lent from 7:00 - 8:00 p.m. our parish along with all the parishes and chapels of the Arch-diocese of Newark will be open for individual confession. The Archdiocese has set up a website,
to help you prepare. It has a video on the Sacrament of Recon-ciliation, sheets on how to make a good confession, answers to frequently asked questions and more. Please make plansto come on Lenten Wednesdays and spread the word of this special outreach of mercy to those you know.
We are used to hearing the term “gifted” applied to people of exceptional ability or talent. Yet each of us is gifted. ThroughGod’s grace, each of us has strengths, gifts, talents, and abilities without which the Body of Christ, the Church, is incom- plete. This key dimension of stewardship—the use of our gifts in service to others—is the one many Catholics have themost trouble with. We can see ourselves, with prayer and sacrifice, giving more of our time and our treasure. But talent?That’s for those
people, the “gifted” ones, we think.The term “talent” for a gift with which we have been entrusted by God comes from Jesus’ Parable of the Talents, where itoriginally meant a valuable coin. Like the stewards in the parable, entrusted with valuable commodities by our Master, willwe hide them away in fear, or invest them for great return? Spend some time this week thinking about the gifts that youalone can share with our parish community and the wider world—and then make a plan to share them. “
 As each one hasreceived a gift, use it to serve one another as good stewards of God's varied grace.” (1 Peter 4:10)
Our Stewardship Appeal started slowly, but now has picked up. To date after four weeks, 350 households have in-creased their weekly contribution in response to the letter from Fr. Bill, representing a combined weekly increase of ap- proximately 8% in Sunday Collections.If you have not already done so, please use the special Stewardship envelope to indicate your new level of giving, andreturn to your regular envelope packet for succeeding weeks. If you are interested in receiving information on our Elec-tronic Giving Program, please contact the rectory office.
