My Dear Brothers and Sisters,

   Hopefully you have received a letter from Bishop Sullivan asking you to prayerfully consider a sacrificial gift to the House of Charity for this year's campaign. Please prayerfully consider making a commitment in support of the vital programs that carry on the work of the Church throughout southern New Jersey.

   These ministries benefit our less fortunate brothers and sisters in our local and surrounding communities. The gifts that come from our parish join those from throughout the Diocese, enabling our workers to bring hope to those in need. While a single gift may not seem like much on its own in the face of such great need, when the Church combines its gifts together, we are able to care for multitudes.

   We are the Church. This is our calling. Since the first Apostles, we have been charged with providing care to those who need it ... inspired by the sacrificial love our Savior taught us. 

Heavenly Father,

You called us to be One Body: Your Church.

You blessed us so we may be good servants.

Help us to serve those in need.

We ask this through Jesus Christ, our Lord,

Who with You and the Holy Spirit live and reign

One God forever and ever. Amen.

   Human beings began wearing clothes around 100,000 or so years ago. Other members of the animal kingdom have “natural” clothes: their hides, their scales, or their shells. Human beings, however, are the only animals that fashion clothing for themselves … and this is for various reasons / purposes. Among utilitarian uses, we put on clothes to keep warm, to protect us from rain and other elements, to insulate us from heat or danger, to mark us as having a particular job, purpose, or rank. Among the aesthetic uses of clothes, we wear clothes to enhance our skin color or body shape, and maybe to hide imperfections. Clothes can adorn us with status, mark a special occasion, and differentiate gender or cultures. Clothes can make us look more attractive and more powerful looking. All of these differing uses of clothes, however, have one thing in common: clothes are always something added to us, apart from our being, and can be put on or taken off.
