Mitzvah Day Sign-up

Sign Up Today

Here it is! Our long awaited Mitzvah Day Volunteer Application/Donation form is linked below. The sooner you sign up the better your chance of getting your first choice of service site. The form also details lots of activities you can do at COL rather than go offsite. Options fit the ability, desire and time schedule of just about everyone including families and seniors. People are in the gathering space today to help you choose and answer questions. New parishioners are very welcome. If you’re donating a gift card you don’t need to fill out a form. Return your completed form no later than October 8th in the collection basket or at the parish office.   This Mitzvah Day is our 10th annual parish wide day of outreach and service.


Countdown 27 days to Saturday, October 19

One Book, One COL

 “In a nation deeply divided and plagued by poverty and violence, Barking to the Choir offers a snapshot into the challenges and joys of life on the margins.  The Choir is everyone who longs and aches to widen their “loving look” at what’s right in front of them.  The Choir aims to stand with the most vulnerable, directing their care to the widow, the orphan, the stranger, and the poor.  Those in the Choir want to be taught at the feet of the least.” (Barking to the Choir: The Power of Radical Kinship by Gregory Boyle, SJ, founder of Homeboy Industries)

 Join us on this parish journey as we share in the stories of LA gang members who form a community of inclusiveness, kinship and love.  All are welcome to read the book, and join us for the closing event. We will meet to discuss the book’s impact on us, and watch a video of Greg Boyle speaking at St. Joseph’s University last fall.  He shares the challenges and joys of life on the margins and encourages us to form bonds of radical kinship.

October 27, 2019 12:30-3:00 PM in the Parish Center.

Grounds for Belief

How about some good conversation and a nice cup of coffee or tea? Grounds for Belief is a unique Ladies Bible Study in a casual, café-style atmosphere where we take a fresh look at the greatest book ever written: the Bible! Our first season of exploring the Bible as one complete story was successful and fun, bringing new friendships and a deeper appreciation for God’s great love for us. We are looking forward to beginning our second season!

When: Mondays: 2:00 - 3:30 PM (beginning Sept. 9)
Where: Parish Center St. Francis Room (B)

4th Annual KOCA Golf Outing

KOCA will host its 4th Annual Golf Outing on Monday, October 7, 2019 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.  Thanks to our sponsors and players, last year’s event raised nearly $9,000 for Resurrection Catholic School.

Registration will begin at 11:00 AM and a shotgun start will begin at 1:00 PM using a scramble format. After the round (approximately 5:30PM), a reception with 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. The opportunity to purchase mulligans and 50/50 tickets will be available during registration.  We will also have a silent auction of various golf related items. (Don’t forget your checkbook)

The cost for the outing (including golf, cocktails, and dinner) will be $95.00 per golfer.  If you want to play with a specific foursome, you must submit entire foursome payment and player information at the same time.  If you only want to attend Dinner the cost will be $55 per person.

Question of the Week

Week of September 22, 2019

Luke 16: 1-13


What “masters” keep you from serving God with all your heart, all your mind, and all your soul?

We offer this form of contemplative sharing for pondering Scripture while considering the question, and for the faith sharing which follows.

-  Listen/ Read (Lectio): Ponder God’s word and listen for what touches your heart.
-  Meditate (Meditatio): Notice what you notice. Allow God’s word to resonate in you.
-  Speak/Share (Oratio): Prayerfully share with the group your thoughts and feelings.
-  Rest in God’s presence (Contemplatio): Notice God’s presence and be still, surrounded by God’s love.
-  Choose to act (Actio): Trusting in God’s nearness, commit to action rooted in love


How do you show others that you are trustworthy?


Who in your life do you trust? How do you show that you trust Jesus?
