Call To Action
BURLINGTON COUNTY DIOCESAN RESPECT LIFE
The NJ Assembly will vote on Monday Feb 25 on bill A 1504 which would legalize doctor assisted suicide. Any form of suicide is against both natural law and God’s commandments. The Executive Director of the NJ Catholic Conference feels voicing one’s opinion to their legislators is more effective than people realize, but time is very short for doing so. This may be our last chance to keep NJ from becoming a suicide-friendly state.
If you want to phone in your opinion, you can reach you legislators at:
For District 7 :
Assemblywoman Carol Murphy @ 856-735-5334
Assemblyman Herb Conaway @ 856-461-3997
Inclement Weather Policy
For the safety of all involved, parishioners and personnel, we announce that during times of inclement weather involving snow and ice, the first service of the day will be held at 9:00am. Weekday Lauds and 7:30am Mass on Sunday will not be celebrated on days of inclement weather.
New monthly collection - Baby Items Needed
1st Way of Burlington Co. will be collecting a variety of items for those moms that have chosen life for their babies. There will be a play pen set up in the vestibule of the church to collect the donations. This collection will take place on the 4th Sunday of every month - the next collection will be on February 23/24. We especially need Enfamil formula, diapers especially size 5 and 6, wipes, shampoos, and newborn clothing. Thank you for helping those whom have chosen Life!!!
Do you know a Caregiver?
Jesus gave us a new commandment: “love one another as I have loved you..." (Jn 13:34). On the night before the Last Supper Jesus washed the feet of his disciples, a lesson for them and for us in caring for and loving each other. Caregivers put this commandment into action every hour of every day. The demand on the caregiver for loving patience and dedication is extreme. St. Francis de Sales suggests that, "the measure of love is to love without measure. May God continue to bless all caregivers in their daily challenges and strengthen their capacity to care for their loved one – “with love without measure.”
How does the caregiver do all that is necessary and still find time for their personal well being - spiritual, emotional, and physical health?
When requested, a parishioner will visit the caregiver and their loved one, bringing Holy Communion, prayer, and spiritual support, as well as news of parish life, and perhaps a little laughter.
