Saint John Paul II Parish Seder The Rosarians at St. Marys Church would like to invite all Members of Our Parish Family of Saint John Paul II to Our Annual Seder. It will be held on Wednesday of Holy Week, April 1, at 6:00 p.m. We relive Jesus final moments at the Last Supper when He celebrated the Passover meal with his apostles, and instituted the Holy Eucharist. All of the kosher food and traditions of the Pesach are observed. A delicious lamb dinner catered by the Barge will be served. A suggested donation of ten dollars or more is requested to help defray our expenses. This is not a fundraiser but is a time to share a very special liturgical event just as Jesus did two thousand years ago. Reservations are necessary.
Reservations must be made by Sunday, April 13.
Please contact Millie Vazquez at 732-826-0282 or the parish office at 732-442-0039 if you are interested in attending and tell us how many family members and guests will accompany you.
Prayer for the Year of Consecrated Life
O God, throughout the ages you have called women and men to pursue lives of perfect charity through the evangelical counsels of poverty, chastity, and obedience. During this Year of Consecrated Life, we give you thanks for these courageous witnesses of Faith and models of inspiration. Their pursuit of holy
lives teaches us to make a more perfect offering of ourselves to you. Continue to enrich your Church by calling forth sons and daughters who, having found the pearl of great price, treasure the Kingdom of Heaven above all things. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, for ever and ever. Amen.
World Meeting of Families Prayer
God and Father of us all, in Jesus, your Son and our Savior, you have made us your sons and daughters in the family of the Church. May your grace and love help our families in every part of the world be united to one another in fidelity to the Gospel. May the example of the Holy Family, with the aid of your Holy Spirit, guide all families, especially those most troubled, to be homes of communion and prayer and to always seek your truth and live in your love.
Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
Jesus, Mary and Joseph, pray for us!
