Mitzvah Day Thank You

Thanks to all for our very successful 5th Annual Mitzvah Day!  Our thanks to God for the beautiful weather first of all. Thank you to the 300+ volunteers who engaged in 28 activities and service sites.  Your generosity and flexibility was amazing.  Thank you to all those who donated blood or attempted to give blood, a total of 41 pints was given.  Thanks to all who prayed for us for the success of the day.

We also thank the committee which organized the day: Jan Cote, Mary Horvath, Deb Celhar, Andy Hunt, Eva Vitello, Cathy Staines, Barbara Long,  Carla Spates, Ann Landau,  and Pat Slater.  Thanks to Deb Gardner-Lozado who organized the potluck and thanks to the potluck helpers. Thanks to Joy Pearl who did data entry and Ben DiPaolo, her back up.

Thank you to those who donated gift cards and cash to help out with food and supplies for the service sites.  Thanks to those who donated toiletries, craft items. socks and cell phones.   

A special thanks to Third Base Sports who donated our Mitzvah t-shirts and Eric Danver of Papa John's who donated our lunch pizzas.
We are grateful for a parish where this type of activity can happen.  The ground is tilled all year through ongoing generosity and compassionate care.  Thank you.

International Day of Remembrance

October 15 was the International Day of Remembrance for those who have lost a child.  We will have a cloth out in the gathering space the week of Saturday, October 25 - Friday, October 31.  You can inscribe a name of a deceased child or any other message of remembrance for your lost child.  This cloth will be placed on the altar the weekend of November 1 and November 2 at all the Masses.  If you would like to be part of the liturgy and place the cloth on the altar, please contact Pat Slater in the parish office at 856-667-2440 x327 or by e-mail at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

RCIA - Be Filled with the Spirit

Do you know someone who may feel there is something missing in their lives? Perhaps you have a sister, brother, cousin or friend that was baptized but never made their First Eucharist or Confirmation in the Catholic Church.  If you do, why not suggest the RCIA program. This journey of faith may be just what they are seeking for.  The RCIA team is now  welcoming new people into the Inquiry Phase of Discernment. If you have any questions or would like to inquire, please call Barbara Long at 856-810-0881.

Welcome to Christ Our Light!

Question of the Week

Week of October 19, 2014

Matthew: 22: 15 – 21



(instead of a question for the adults, we off this method of pondering Scripture called Lectio Divina)

- Listen: Listen for God’s Word or a passage that touches your heart
- Meditate: Ponder the word. Allow God’s word to resonate in you.
- Contemplate: Notice the presence of God’s love within you. Allow yourself to be still in God’s presence
- Converse: Speak to God your thoughts and feelings. Share what you found in your heart.


In today’s world, I give to “Caesar” by paying taxes, upholding the law and being a good citizen. How do I give to God?


What does God expect of me?
