Special Announcement from the Parish Pastoral Council
RE: SCHEDULING OUR SUNDAY MASSES PART FOUR
Starting July 1, 2012 Our Sunday Mass Schedule will be:
Please Note The Mass Intentions will transfer to the new times.
The daily Mass schedule will remain the same.
For the past few weeks, the Parish Pastoral Council has been sharing the reasons behind the creation of the new Mass schedule as well as answering questions regarding the Mass schedules, both new and old.
One concern that is often raised is that Baptisms are currently celebrated at only one Mass – the 12 Noon. This is because it is the last Mass of the day. Once that Mass, which includes the celebration of Baptism is over; families are free to take photos and socialize as long as they want since there are no other Masses.
With the new Mass schedule, we will now be able to celebrate the Sacrament of Baptism at both the 10:30 am and 12:30 pm Masses. The two-hour span between these services will allow for families to celebrate their special day and for other parishioners to attend Mass unimpeded by parking or congestion concerns.

We discussed the upcoming Mass schedule changes and plans to support parishioners with this change as much as possible. We then discussed the recent Day of Service. The Day of Service was a large success for all those that planned it and participated in it as well as for all those that were served. We look forward to continuing with the Day of Service in the spring or fall of 2013.
The Council discussed the actions items from the strategic plan, Forward in Faith 2016, that pertain to the Council. We all agreed that we would like to spend more time on this and will have an additional summer meeting on a Saturday in July.
The Council is currently working on preparing a welcoming committee in order to help welcome new parishioners as well as to help our parish to be one that is welcoming. We reviewed Father Raul’s Farewell Weekend and wish him well in his new assignment. Solicitation requests were reviewed. The Finance Council representative then gave us an update. The meeting ended in prayer. Comments may be addressed to the Pastoral Council([email protected])

THANK YOU FOR A SUCCESSFUL PARISH DAY OF SERVICE
Saturday, May 19, was our parish’s second Day of Service. In last week’s bulletin, a thank you was issued to all those who
participated and made the day a successful one. However our Parish Day of Service would not have been a success without the donations of several venders in our community. So we graciously thank the following venders for their donations:
Shop Rite of Rochelle Park (Hamburger and Hot Dog Rolls) Schreiber’s Delicatessen of Oradell (30 lbs of Potato Salad, 8 lbs of Tuna, Restaurant jar of Mayonnaise and their recipe for the pasta salad.) Fairway Market of Paramus (Two big trays of fruit) Great Foods Market of Oradell (Several lbs of Cold Cuts) Town and Country Rentals (Use of a Gas Grill)
The generosity of these businesses blessed us. Without them, we could not have had such a successful day. Thank you to them and to all who participated in our parish Day of Service.

Compiled by the Liturgy of the Word With Children Committee
The Gospel is the Good News about Jesus. The Gospel Reading for today is from St. Matthew Chapter 28 verses 16-20
In today’s Gospel, Jesus tells his followers to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit.” He tells them to teach all the people about his commandments and to tell everyone about him, about God his Father, and about the Holy Spirit. When we were baptized, the priest used the words “I baptize you in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.” As he said this, he washed us with the waters of Baptism. When the priest did this, we became part of God’s family. Baptism makes us all children of God so that we can enter heaven and be with God, Jesus. and the Holy Spirit.
MISSION OF THE WEEK
Some time this week sit down with your parents and ask them about your Baptism. Ask them if they have
any pictures from the day of your Baptism.
NOTE TO PARENTS
The Liturgy of the Word with Children takes place at our 9am Sunday Mass. During that Mass the younger children are sent forth just before the First Reading and go to the lower church/Mary’s Chapel for their own celebration of God's Word. The readings, homily, songs and prayers are geared to their understanding. The children return before the presentation of the gifts to continue the celebration of the Liturgy with their families. We want God's Good News to be exciting for the younger members of our parish family.
The Liturgy of the Word with Children will conclude Sunday June 24. We will resume after Labor Day.
COLOR THIS PICTURE OF A BAPTISM When a person is baptized the priest pours water on the
person and says the words, “I baptize you in the name
of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit.
