June 2019

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

May the Grace of the Holy Spirit be with everyone as we observe the great Solemnity of Pentecost on Sunday, June 9th – the “birthday of the Church.” May God’s Divine energy in his Third Person of the Holy Trinity become an apparent part of our lives.

Bishop Checchio has blessed our Cathedral parish with the assignment of David Keyes, a seminarian preparing for the diaconate and priesthood for our diocese. David hails from Wisconsin. He has completed his academics, and he will be ministering at Saint Francis during this present year and into the next. Let us keep David and is vocation in our prayers.

The Diocese of Metuchen will celebrate ordinations to the transitional and permanent diaconate on Saturday, June 15th at 10:30 A.M. Eight men will be ordained to the ministry of service. The following week in our Cathedral Bishop Checchio will celebrate the ordination to the holy Priesthood on June 22nd also at 10:30 A.M. Let us keep all these men in our prayers and continuously pray for vocations to the Priesthood, the Diaconate and to Religious Life.

Please join us on Sunday, June 23rd, the Solemnity of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ (Corpus Christi). There will be an outdoor procession following the 12:00 Noon Mass to honor our Savior.

Another Saint Francis Cathedral School year is coming to a successful conclusion. We are most grateful to our Lord for our principal Mrs. Ann Major, our devoted faculty, our aids and everyone who contributes to maintaining our Blue Ribbon School, a high quality institution of Catholic education. We gratefully acknowledge our Home-School Association Executive Board who have led our parish families’ generous support in every way. Thank you also to everyone from our parish and others for our very successful tricky-tray.

Please bring your children to Church for Mass and other forms of worship.

Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us!

In Christ’s service,

Rev. Msgr. Robert J. Zamorski
