PENTECOST SUNDAY First Reading: Acts 2:1-11 The disciples were celebrating Pentecost together when "tongues of fire appeared which parted, then came to rest on each of them." The disciples were filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in foreign tongues. Visitors from many different countries were amazed that each guest could hear his or her native language being spoken as the disciples proclaimed God's glory. Second Reading: 1 Corinthians 12:3b-7, 12-13 Each person has received different manifestations of the same spirit to contribute to the common good of all. All members of the church have been baptized into one body because of our belief in the Holy Spirit, who was sent to us by God. Gospel: John 20:19-23 Jesus appeared to the disciples even though they had locked the doors in fear. Jesus then showed the disciples his hands and his side; and they rejoiced at his presence. He breathed on them saying "Receive the Holy Spirit." He then gave the disciples the power to forgive others or hold them accountable for their sins.

A Biblical Walk Through The Mass
The Bible Study Group will meet at Our Lady of Good Counsel on
Wednesdays, after the 4pm Mass, in the “Cry Room”, from 4:30 to 5:30pm. Beginning Wednesday, June12th.
All are Welcome ~ Please join us!
Christ at Mass We commonly think of Pentecost as the “birthday” of the Church. On the other hand, great saints saw the Church as born from the side of Christ on the cross; “the Church was born from the pierced heart of Christ hanging dead on the cross. (St Ambrose, Catechism of the Catholic Church 766).” We could, however, see Pentecost as the “Confirmation” of the Church. Just as Christians receive the fullness of Christ’s baptismal promises at Confirmation, the infant Church becomes fully prepared for our mission to the world at Pentecost. The mission of the Church is the mission of Christ, to reconcile people to God, forgive their sins, and show them the path to full and eternal life. At the Last Supper, Christ says to the apostles, “the one who loves me keeps my commandments.” and he said, “the Holy Spirit will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.” On the First Easter Sunday, Christ breathes on the apostles and says (this Sunday’s Gospel), “receive the Holy Spirit, whose sins you forgive are forgiven.” On Pentecost Sunday, we celebrate God’s gift of the Holy Spirit for the forgiveness of sins. As we accept forgiveness, we need to remember and be faithful to the teachings of Christ, which we have with certainty, through the Church by the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit is Here and Dwelling Among Us The Spirit promised Jesus that he would not leave them orphaned. The advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and remind you of all that I told you. In today’s Gospel, He breathed the Spirit of Grace upon His apostles and gave them the power to forgive sins.
Domingo de Pentecostes ~ Se Llenaron del Espirtu Santo El espiritu Santo vino sobre los apóstoles llenándolos de una fuerza especial. El Espíritu Santo se manifiesta en nosotros de diversas maneras para el bien de la communidad, llamados a ser creadores de la unidad integrándonos en el único cuerpo de Cristo. Cristo resucitado se aparece a sus apóstoles para darles La Paz e infundir en ellos su Esipitu. Con estos dones, Cristo les ordena que vayan al mundo a impartir el perdón de los pecados! Retenerlos cuando sea necesario.

Parish Community Event
School Supplies for Children in Haiti One of our parishioners is collecting school supplies for the children of LaMontagne Jacmel, Haiti in the name of Fedabel,
Inc., which is a 501(c)3 corporation that raises money for tuition and collects basic medical and school supplies for 100 children in this village. There will be boxes for these donations at the main entrances of all our churches,
from May 24th until August 4th. The following is a list of things that are needed for these children:
• 100 Backpacks/School Bags • 840 Composition Books 9 3/4” X 7 1/2” • 500 Pencils • 300 Pens (Blue ink) • 300 Pens (Red ink)
• 70 Geometry Sets • 70 Rulers • 200 Boxes of Crayons • 100 Manual Pencil Sharpeners • 100 Pairs of Children’s Shoes • 100 Pairs of Children’s Socks
While shoes may sound unusual, these children climb mountains to go to school and may drop out if they have no shoes. They are in different levels of primary school, so any size children’s shoes would most likely find an owner.
Thank you for any and all donations! For further information, please call Gerry Barsotti at 609-805-1421

Please place meals in the freezer, found in the Usher’s Room (the room to the right when you enter the front door) at St. Frances Cabrini. The Church is now open Monday thru Friday from 8:30am Mass to 12 Noon in addition to Saturday & Sunday. Your generosity will be appreciated.
