From the Pastor

My Dear Parish Family,

I am sure that many of you probably join me in wondering where the summer has gone!  Time certainly moves fast when we are busy, and I hope and pray that you have been able to enjoy these months and find some much deserved rest. I am thankful to Judy Stern and our amazing Choir, along with the presence of the Knights of Columbus for their great work last Saturday at the annual Trenton Thunder game.  It was a wonderful night filled with friendship, family and fun.  As a Parish family, we also wished Tim Graham all the best last weekend as he left us to begin his studies at St. Charles Borromeo Seminary this week.  It was wonderful to see so many of our parishioners congratulate Tim at the farewell receptions after each Mass.  Thank you to the Knights of Columbus for all of their hard work in organizing these events!

This weekend, Brother Lawrence Harvey, an Xaverian Brother, will speak at all of the Masses about the work of the Xaverian Brothers as missionaries and educators in some of the most needy parts of the world.  Thank you for your support of this annual Diocesan missionary appeal, and may God bless you for your generosity. 

I hope that you are able to relax and enjoy these remaining days of summer.  Please continue to pray for me as I will pray for you.

Saint John the Baptist, pray for us!
Rev. Brian Patrick Woodrow
