    Isaiah 56:1,6-7 Romans 11:13-15, 29-32 Saint Matthew 15:21-28

    “Good works are links that form a chain of love.” - Saint Mother Teresa

    It is our vocation and calling from the Lord Jesus

    Himself, to “Feed my sheep.” So we ask you to please remember these “little ones” before you leave your

    house for church. Pick up an extra can or box of food and leave it at the entrance of the church.

    Did you bring a can of food with you this week? Leaving feeding to the poor to others, is just not

    an acceptable way to live our Christian lives.

    Let us remember the words of Saint Paul: “The Lord loves a cheerful giver.”

    (2 Corinthians 9:7)

    Thanks to the bishop

    Food for the needy

    Many thanks to Bishop Serratelli for making his

    pastoral visit to our parish family this past weekend.

    Thanks also to his ecclesiastical secretary Father Kevin

    Corcoran for being the Master of Ceremonies.

    At the end of the Mass he thanked the people of Saint

    Joseph Church for their generosity to the diocese,

    to their parish and to their “pastor” Father ST.

    It seems this was his official announcement of our new

    pastor. We congratulate Father ST as he becomes our

    new pastor of Saint Joseph Church. May the Lord bless

    Father for many years to come as he leads our parish

    in faith, hope and charity!


    Would you or anyone you know, like to become a Catholic? If you have never been baptized or have been baptized in a Protestant church and would like to be members of our Church, please let us know. Maybe you have not received all your Sacraments and would like more information about how to do this, we welcome you to participate in our parish’s RCIA Program (The Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults) which is a sacramental process of conversion that will help you travel on your spiritual journey to follow Christ in your life.

    If you are interested, please call Deacon Tom and Joanne Zayac

    at 973-300-4758.

    Classes will begin in September on Wednesdays

    in the Parish Center.

    Tuesday, August 15th, is the

    Assumption of the Blessed

    Virgin Mary and is a Holy

    Day with the obligation of

    attending Mass. Masses are

    at: 12:05 and 7:00pm.

    Faith Formation

  • What is a pastor?

    According to the Code of Canon Law: “A pastor is obliged to make provision that the Word of God is proclaimed in its entirety to those living in the parish; for this reason, he is to take care that the lay members of the Christian faithful are instructed in the truths of the faith, especially by giving a homily on Sundays and holy days of obligation and by offering catechetical instruction. He is to foster works through which the spirit of the Gospel is promoted, even in what pertains to social justice. He is to have particular care for the Catholic education of children and youth. He is to make every effort, even with the collaboration of the Christian faithful, so that the message of the Gospel comes also to those who have ceased the practice of their religion or do not profess the true faith. The pastor is to see that the Most Holy Eucharist is the center of the parish assembly of the faithful. He is to work so that the Christian faithful are nourished through the devout celebration of the Sacraments and, in a special way, that they frequently approach the sacraments of the Most Holy Eucharist and penance. He is also to endeavor that they are led to practice prayer even as families and take part consciously and actively in the sacred liturgy which, under the authority of the diocesan bishop, the pastor must direct in his own parish and is bound to watch over so that no abuses creep in. In order to fulfill his office diligently, a pastor is to strive to know the faithful entrusted to his care. Therefore, he is to visit families, sharing especially in the cares, anxieties and griefs of the faithful, strengthening them in the Lord and prudently correcting them if they are failing in certain areas. With generous love he is to help the sick, particularly those close to death, by refreshing them solicitously with the sacraments and commending their souls to God; with particular diligence he is to seek out the poor, the afflicted, the lonely, those exiled from their country and similarly those weighed down by special difficulties. He is to work so that spouses and parents are supported in fulfilling their proper duties and is to foster growth of Christian life in the family. A pastor is to recognize and promote the proper part which the lay members of the Christian faithful have in the mission of the Church, by fostering their associations for the purposes of religion. He is to cooperate with his own bishop and the prebysterium of

    the diocese, also working so that the faithful have concern for parochial communion, consider themselves members of the diocese and of the Universal Church and participate in and sustain efforts to promote this same communion (Canons 528ff). The code goes on to enumerate how the pastor is to administer the Sacraments and how he is “in all juridic affairs” the one who “represents the parish according to the norm of law.” He also is to take care of the financial and spiritual “goods” of the church. In all of this canonical information, the only real difference between an Administrator and a Pastor is that the Pastor enjoys the protection of the law in his new “office” (the particular term that canon law uses for his official position). This means that having been appointed for a particular period of time (usually 6 years) he may not be moved by the bishop without the pastor’s consent. This is a great day and joy in the life of the parish. Having been without a permanent spiritual leader for two years, the bishop’s appointment of Father ST as the new pastor gives stability to the parish and is truly a “shot in the arm” for all your faithfulness and generosity (both of which were mentioned during the bishop’s final comments at the 5:00pm Mass last Saturday). Please remember to continue to pray for Father ST as his “job” does not change, nor does his challenges or duties, but, now that he has a more permanent “office” in the Church, he will be able to continue in his vision for Saint Joseph for at least six more years as he is committed to truly “Working harder to work together to make a difference.” Once the official letter of appointment has been received at the Parish Center, it will be officially read by one of the Trustees at all Masses. Once this takes place, we will be having a small reception in the Community Center to celebrate this grace in the life of our parish community. God bless Saint Joseph Church in Newton and God bless our new pastor, Father ST Sutton.
