“Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Whom shall I send? Who will go for us?’ ‘Here I am,’ I said, ‘send me!’”                                                                               (Isaiah 6:8)

Every day, in little ways and in big ways, God asks, “Whom shall I send?” Whether it is someone to take on a new ministry, to give a friendly smile to a stranger or say a word of encouragement to a friend, God constantly provides opportunities to help someone in need.  The next time you hear God calling, have the courage to walk through the door and say “Here I am, Lord.”

Lighting Hearts on Fire
Diocesan Marian Consecration Preparation Year

Our Lady of Guadalupe

This past December 12, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Bishop James F. Checchio launched a year of spiritual preparation for the consecration of the Diocese of Metuchen to Our Lady of Guadalupe with Evening Prayer. The purpose of this consecration is to invoke Our Lady of Guadalupe’s (the Patroness of the Americas) aid for our diocese, so that we can be spiritually renewed and equipped to live out our call to evangelize more faithfully. For more information, please visit: lightingheartsonfire.org.

“Guadalupe, the Miracle and the Message”

In line with the Bishop’s plan, St. Mary parish’s New Evangelization Committee will be holding a movie night/afternoon on Friday, February 22, at 7 p.m., and again on Thursday, February 28, at 2 p.m., in St. Pat’s Hall. The featured movie, “Guadalupe, the Miracle and the Message”, is about the meaning and message of Our Lady of Guadalupe’s apparitions. All are invited to attend. May God bless us and light our hearts on fire!

Ribbon

In keeping with Bishop Checchio’s consecration of our diocese to Our Lady of Guadalupe, you will notice sign-up sheets in the back of the church for families to pray together and prepare for the consecration by hosting a “travelling kit” (containing an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe) in their homes for one week (Sunday through Saturday) beginning with next Sunday, February 17. Let us pray for the spiritual renewal of our diocese!
