Dear Friends,

Our Lent is off to a fast start – I can just about keep up – and I want to keep you posted on a handful of important matters.

 

  • We congratulate Fr. Artur Zaba on his becoming Pastor of Sts. Cyril and Methodius, effective March 19. I’m thankful for Fr. Zaba’s service here, and am doubly grateful for the attention he has given Sts. Cyril and Methodius during his tenure here as Parochial Vicar of both Boonton churches. Fr. Zaba’s appointment as pastor relieves me of my role as the parish’s administrator.
  • We are in the middle of our Prayerful Giving, Joyful Living renewed offertory program. I was very thankful for the strong response we had last weekend, especially given the weather and the time change. We are hoping to have 100% participation in the program, so please give special attention to filling out and returning a card. Thank you for helping the parish to thrive in everything you do and give.
  • We will host a special program here on Thursday, March 21: Getting our Affairs in Order. Darren Dangler and Bernard Bachetta will feature with me in a discussion on end-of-life issues. Please join us, no matter your age. We will take a good look at medical directives, funeral preparations, and estate planning. We are hosting two sessions (2:30pm and 7:00pm) with light refreshments. Please RSVP to the office.
  • Bishop Serratelli will be here for Confirmations next Saturday (5:15pm Mass), March 23. At last count – because we are moving Confirmation to 8th grade – we have 60 students being confirmed. If you are attending the Vigil Mass, please know that we expect the church to be packed. We anticipate a beautiful celebration with the bishop that evening.
  • Our 24 Hours for the Lord is taking shape, and will be held March 29-30. After Friday’s 8:00am morning Mass, the Eucharist will be exposed and confessions will be heard in the church for 24 hours straight. You will not want to miss this – it would be amazing to get everyone in the parish to confession over the course of those 24 hours. I hope to post a schedule of priests sometime soon.

 

That’s not it, but it’s probably enough for now. If you’d like to keep up with us more consistently, check out www.olmc.church for more. There, I am trying to maintain a blog, post homilies, keep the parish calendar, manage online giving, and more. Please give it a look and let me know what you think.

 

In the Peace of Christ,

Father Daniel

NEWS AND NOTES

"The fast of Lent has no advantage to us unless it brings about our spiritual renewal. It is necessary while fasting to change our whole life and practice virtue. Turning away from all wickedness means keeping our tongue in check, restraining our anger, avoiding all gossip, lying and swearing. To abstain from these things—herein lies the true value of the fast."                                                           

— St. John Chrysostom
