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.

A message from our Pastor:

Dear Parishioners,

I hope you enjoyed last weeks annual trivia quiz. The

time has come to see how well you did. If you scored

higher than your spouse/child/ parent, don’t rub it in,

I’m sure they already feel bad enough. You may,

however, enjoy that look of smug satisfaction for a

while. Here we go:

7. What was the first parish founded in the

Archdiocese of Newark? St. John’s on Mulberry St.,

Newark. It is still there.

8. What line comes next: “Come Holy Spirit, fill the

hearts of the faithful……” Enkindle in them the fire

of your love.

9. Which Council formally defined the doctrine of

Papal Infallibility? The First Vatican Council

10. What do we call the large object in which the

School News

Along with the Labels for Education and Box Top$ for

Education programs, Holy Spirit School also

participates in an additional fundraiser from Tyson

products. Clipping these labels is a great way to get

FREE merchandise for Holy Spirit School! Many

companies now participate in these programs, so by

saving the labels with the UPC bar code, and clipping

the Box Tops for Education symbol and Tyson labels

from these products, you are helping Holy Spirit

School! Collection boxes for these labels are located on

the tables inside the entrances of our Church and School.

We thank you for your support!!!

Attention All Parents & Parishioners:

Don’t throw away that empty

inkjet cartridge!

Send it to EMPTIES4CASH

Empty inkjet cartridges can be recycled and

remanufactured. Our school will receive $4.00 for each

cartridge turned in. This will directly benefit our school,

the students, and even the environment. You can help!

Any ink cartridges with a print head can be recycled

regardless of brand or type. Bring all cartridges to a

designated cartridge box located in front of the Computer

classroom in the Parish Hall.

Thank you for your support!

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is “a

gradual process that takes place within the community

of the faithful.” The length of time of the process varies

according to individual need, experience, readiness

and commitment. If you, or someone you know is

interested in more information, please call Cathy Drake

at the Office of Religious Education at (908) 964-7533.

~~~also~~~

If you are not a Catholic, but attracted to the Catholic

Church, or a Catholic needing to complete your

Sacraments of Initiation (Eucharist or Confirmation), It

is a time set aside for asking questions and exploring

God’s call in an informal setting. There are no

commitments or obligations required, only questions

answered and information shared. Again, call Cathy

Drake at 908 964-7533.

Something to Pray About

We are in need of Catechists and class aides.

Please prayerfully consider sharing our faith and its

traditions with the youth of Holy Spirit Church.

12:00 noon

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.

Mark 8:29

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

weekend.

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.
