Remember your Parish
Some people wait until the end of summer to put in a
“catch-up” envelope for the Sundays they might have
been away. The “Way of Stewardship” is NOT to
“catch-up” after everything has been used for vacation
but to give from the “first fruits.” Why not consider
“catching up” before you leave for vacation as an act
of gratitude to God for all you have been given.

Our Summer Mass Schedule has begun
and will continue through and including
September 2, 2012
Our Summer Mass Schedule is as follows:
Saturdays: 5:30 pm
Sundays: 8:00 am
Arriving Late For Mass?
Late arrivals are asked to join the worshipping
assembly unobtrusively, entering the pews by way of the
side aisles (and preferably while the congregation is
standing). Please do not walk down the main aisle once
the liturgy has begun.
… And may we all be mindful of the teaching of Vatican
II (CSL 56): “The two parts which in a sense go to make
up the Mass, viz. the liturgy of the word and the
Eucharistic liturgy, are so closely connected with each
other that they form but one single act of worship.
Accordingly this sacred Synod strongly urges pastors of
souls that, when instructing the faithful, they insistently
teach them to take their place for the entire Mass,
especially on Sundays and holy days of obligation.”

HOLY SPIRIT SOUP KITCHEN MINISTRY
Jesus said to his disciples: My heart is moved with pity for
the crowd… He took seven loaves and a few small fish,
blessed them and distributed them. About 4,000 people
ate their full.
As you may know, Holy Spirit sponsors two teams of volunteers
who purchase, cook, and serve 200 hot meals at St. Joseph’s
Social Service Center in Elizabeth the fourth Saturday of every
other month. We’ve been serving in this ministry for over 25
years through the generous financial support of others. To
continue our efforts to feed our hungry neighbors, The Holy Spirit
Soup Kitchen Team will sponsor its annual LOAVES AND FISHES
fund drive on the weekend of July 28 and 29. Your generosity will
make it possible for us to continue our efforts to provide hot meals to
those who come to the soup kitchen. Please put your donation in a
“Loaves and Fishes” envelope and place it in the regular collection or
give it to one of the priests or deacons at the end of Mass on that
As important as the financial support is, it’s equally important to
have volunteers willing to go to St. Joe’s on the designated Saturdays to
serve those who come to eat. The team is always looking for volunteers
interested in participating in this ministry three times each year. If
you’re willing to make this commitment to serve the hungry or have
any questions about what we do, please call Joan at 964-9261.
GOD BLESS YOU FOR YOUR GENEROSITY.
