First Week of Advent

Vocation Discernment Group Meeting
Sunday, November 29, 2015

A Vocation Discernment Group Meeting is a wonderful opportunity to share how God is calling us to serve in His Church. In these sessions we talk about the issues that affect our vocation: How does God call us? How can I know where God wants me to serve Him? What is the life of priestly ministry? What are the qualities that make a holy priest? What is the formation process like? Through prayer, experience, and a strong dedication to one’s spiritual life, discernment emerges as a gift from God, leading us in the right direction. You are invited to share your journey with us in these discernment group meetings. Our next meeting will be held on November 29, at the Parish of Corpus Christi, 11 South Sunset Road, Willingboro, N.J., 08046, from 4:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m., hosted by, Rev. Joseph Jakub. The time will include prayer, sharing discernment stories, Q and A and a light meal. The meetings are a wonderful experience as you discover and respond to His invitation and serve the Church in His priesthood.

Franciscan Friars of the Renewal Parish Mission
Monday, December 14, 2015

With the Holy Year of Mercy approaching on December 8 and our Church being a Shrine of Mercy for the Holy Year, I wanted to share with you some very exciting news. The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal have offered to present a Parish Mission on the theme of Mercy right at the beginning of the Year of Mercy. This is very exciting and is a wonderful way to inaugurate the Year of Mercy. The Parish Mission will take place December 14 to 16 and begin each evening at 7:30 p.m. in the Church. The themes for each day will be; Monday December 14 - “The Merciful Love of God”, Tuesday December 15 - “Mercy and Reconciliation” (Friars will hear confessions after presentation) and Wed December 16 - “Our Lady of Mercy”. The last night will end with a healing procession and there will also be fellowship following the Mission presentation. The presentations each night will be lead by Fr. Glenn Sudano, CFR who is the Superior of the Order. Other Fran-ciscan Friars and Nuns will join him throughout the mission.
