“Let us all remember this: One cannot proclaim the gospel of Jesus without the tangible witness of one’s life. Those who listen to us and observe us must be able to see in our actions what they hear from our lips. And so give glory to God.” Pope Francis
What wonderful words of encouragement as we get ready to put the Gospel into action. In the spirit of COL let us all partake of this grand opportunity to make a difference.
Men of Christ Our Light and Men of the wider community, come check out our new parish’s very own Men’s Group!
This is a new group being formed and led by Fr. Tom Newton. It is about each man supporting one another to become a transformed man of God; a better person, husband, father, partner, son, brother, and friend. It is about growing up – spiritually, emotionally and socially. The sessions will last 1 ½ hours and will be conducted in the format of a Council Circle (more on Council Circles will follow in another bulletin). Open to All men age 18 and over. All races, creeds, sexual orientations, and levels of church participation are invited. The first session will be held on Saturday, September 23 from 6:00 AM until 7:30 AM.
KOCA will host it 2nd Golf Outing on Monday, October 16, 2017 at Indian Spring Country Club located at 115 S Elmwood Road, Marlton, NJ 08053 (www.indianspringgolf.com). We invite all parish families to attend a fun-filled day of golf and camaraderie.
Registration will begin at 11:00AM and a shotgun start will begin at 1PM using a scramble format. After the round (approximately 5:30PM), a reception with two-hour open bar (beer/wine/soda) and buffet style dinner will be served in the clubhouse. There will be awards for closest to the pin, longest drive, and low score as determined by the golf course pro. We will also have a silent auction of various golf related items. The opportunity to purchase mulligans and 50/50 tickets will be available during registration. The cost for the outing (including golf, cocktails, and dinner) will be $95.00 per golfer. Register by September 22nd to receive a $5 per golfer discount for single golfers and $8 per golfer for foursomes ($348). You must submit entire foursome payment and player information at the same time. If you only want to attend Dinner the cost will be $45 per person.
EFF & YFF classes begin the week of September 17. Children in grades 1 – 8 must be registered no later than September 11 in order to attend the first week of class. Late registrants will not be able to attend the first week of class and will be considered absent.
Are you, or have you at some point thought about becoming Catholic? Maybe you have tagged along with someone going to Sunday Mass and have had a "this is where I belong" feeling while there. If so, why not ask the questions and get the answers to help you decide. In the RCIA program this is called the Inquiry Phase of discernment and is taking place now. If you are interested, we would love to talk with you. For more information please contact Barbara Long at 856-810-0881.
