STEWARDSHIP: A Reflection: Jesus, you tell us to “sell what we have and give alms”. Not even your pastors talk of giving more than ten percent! We suppose you mean share. Your approach is often radical and we have to adapt it to the high cost of living, you see. After all, you wore no shoes in Palestine, and there’s no record you paid for higher education. We do listen to you, Lord; for instance, we are great for selling what we have (what we have extra, that is). We call it a garage sale. It just never occurred to us to try out the rest of it “and give alms,” as you say. (To be continued next week)

Our Stewardship of Treasure for 11/14/10 amounted to $7,466.00 / Our Children’s Collection = $56.00 Repairs and Maintenance = $3,036.80 Thank you for using the weekly collection envelopes. As a reminder, please fill in amount enclosed in the space provided on the front of the envelope and do NOT tape your envelopes. This will help facilitate the processing. Thank you for your cooperation.

From the Desk of our former Pastor November 21, 2010 To the Community of Our Lady Queen of Peace, Maywood: CONGRATULATIONS! For sixty years you have not only been present in town, but have been a guiding influence in the lives of countless numbers of its residents. I certainly feel privileged to have been your pastor. You will always hold a special place in my heart for many reasons. You were my first experience of how a pastor serves and challenges the people entrusted to his care. In return you presented me with many learning opportunities, and my ministry was richer for it. I felt truly welcomed and supported in my new position by the parish organizations and the Knights of Columbus. The Pastoral and Finance Councils were especially helpful over the years and enabled us to mount a successful Capital Campaign, marking the parish’s 50th Anniversary. Together we turned our wishes for the church renovation into a reality. I have many fond memories of the weekly Liturgical celebrations and the excellent level of participation. The joy of Baptisms, Communions, Confirmations, and Marriages over the years contributed to the building of a parish family, of which I felt very much a part. You knew how to celebrate and you knew how to be a compassionate people, especially in times of tragedy, locally, and globally. Indeed, you are a small town church with a big time heart! I will pray for all of you, and for your pastor, Fr. Larry, and ask the Lord for His continued blessing on you and your children. May your Catholic presence in the midst of Maywood, serve as a beacon drawing others closer to the Lord, whom we serve with joyful hearts. You are 60 years young! May you grow to a ripe old age! Fr. Joe Pietropinto Pastor (June 1996 – January 2004) Fr. Don McLaughlin's article will appear on Sunday, December 5th. Our Lady Queen of Peace

St. Andrew Dung Lac / Feast day: November 24 Through the missionary efforts of various religious families beginning in the sixteenth century and continuing until 1866, the Vietnamese people heard the message of the gospel, and many accepted it despite persecution and even death. On June 19, 1988, Pope John Paul II canonized 117 persons martyred in the eighteenth century. Among these were ninety-six Vietnamese, eleven missionaries born in Spain and belonging to the Order of Preachers, and ten French missionaries belonging to the Paris Foreign Mission Society. Among these saints are eight Spanish and French bishops, fifty priests (thirteen European and thirty-seven Vietnamese), and fifty-nine lay people. These martyrs gave their lives not only for the Church but for their country as well. They showed that they wanted the gospel of Christ to take root in their people and contribute to the good of their homeland. On June 1, 1989, these holy martyrs were inscribed in the liturgical calendar of the Universal Church on November 24th.

Religious Education News
During the month of November the Religious Education classes have been learning about the Saints. The All Saints Contest has been a wonderful experience for many of our parish children. The following saints were depicted in various pieces of art work: St. Francis of Assisi, St. Sophia, The Blessed Virgin Mary, St, Jude, St. Virginia Centurione Bracelli, St. Peter, and St. Michael. Short essays were written about St. Lucy, St. Anthony Claret, St. Hope and St. Peter. The children who participated in the contest have been given prizes. They are Amanda Sanchez, Maggie Carpentier, Christian Quiatchon, Hailey Liz, Julyanna Deauna, Peter Carpentier, Alivia Capone, Sophia Montany, and Ava Febre. They each received a small gift for participation. I am seeking a volunteer to teach a small grade 7 class beginning in January, 2011. Please call Angela at 201-845-9545 to set up training and an interview. PRAYER FOR PEACE - Mary, Queen of Peace, save us all, who have so much trust in you from wars, hatred, and oppression. Make us all learn to live in peace, and educate ourselves for peace, do what is demanded by justice and respect the rights of every person, so that peace may be firmly established. Amen Pope John Paul We invite all our Parish Community to write a note / letter to our soldiers overseas. We pray that they may be safe.

THE OPPORTUNITY SCHOLARSHIP ACT Catholic Schools provide an important educational option in NJ by educating students of all economic incomes. Catholic Schools also are a needed resource for the mission of the church. The Opportunity Scholarship Act (S-1872/A-2810) offers opportunities for parents who might be unable to send their children to a Catholic school or another nonpublic school in NJ. In a series of questions and answers, the NJ Catholic Conference, (which has consistently supported this bill) offers a response to misinformation that has been promulgated in many public forums. Please call, write, or email your legislator and ask that they support the Opportunity Scholarship Act. The most convenient way to do this is to go to http://www.capwiz.com/njcathconf/home and click on Take Action. Q. Won’t this legislation help only the best students? A. No, students who are succeeding at the highest levels in their current schools are not expected to be applicants for school choice programs. Happy, high-achieving students normally stay in their current schools. The students in the districts with chronically failing schools who are currently attempting to attend nonpublic schools are those who are not succeeding, and thus their parents are seeking an alternative education choice, for reasons such as academic improvement and / or safety. The school choice and charter school movements have shown that it is mainly the lowachieving students that access these programs.

**Please Look for OLQP Youth Ministry Facebook Page (see website) ** www.olqp.org

Upcoming Service Opportunity Dates: All Confirmation Candidates are required to complete 20 service hours during the 2010-2011 school term. Contact Tom Viola, Youth Minister at OLQP.youth@gmail.com to sign up as soon as possible.
