A Note from St. Mary's Food Pantry
The Food Pantry appreciates all that you do for those in need. Just a reminder – please do not leave food on the rectory steps or porches. ALL food should be left in the back of the church or in St. Theresa's chapel. Also, please check expiration dates. We cannot distribute expired food and must throw it out. Thank you for your cooperation and assistance.
Teachers Aides Needed
We are in need of substitute teachers for our Religious Education Program. Classes are Tuesdays, from 4:30 – 6 p.m. and Thursdays from 6:30 – 8 p.m. If you can help out on either of those days, please call Kevin at 732-721-1514.
Coupon Cutters for Helping Hands – Reminder!
Coupon Categories: Food, Baby, Animal
Coupon Categories: Food, Baby, Animal
We can only use coupons for food items, baby products and animal products. Please save yourself cutting time (and sorting time for us) and only cut coupons from those three categories. Thank you for your support!
Altar Servers Needed
Altar Servers are needed for all Masses – we welcome students in grade 3 and up who have made their First Communion to become a server. Three short training sessions take place before being scheduled and new servers are always paired with veterans while they are learning. Anyone who is interested should contact the Director of Religious Education at firstname.lastname@example.org or see any priest or deacon after Mass.
Anyone wishing to greet fellow parishioners and visitors as they enter the church, or hand out bulletins as they exit after Mass are encouraged to do so. Responding in a special way to Pope Francis' visit to the United States, we especially encourage families to take part in this activity as a group. There's
no commitment, and you never know how holding the door for someone or a kind "good morning" affects someone. Anyone who would like more information may call Pat Regan at 732-727-2768.
