Making All Things New  Update

Cardinal Dolan is in the process of reviewing the recommendations that were presented to him by the Presbyteral Council that took place on June 30, 2014 and July 1, 2014. Since that gathering there have been several developments.

The pastoral planning working group has offered a few additional suggestions for consideration based on further input from vicars and pastors, and these have only been recently presented to His Eminence for his reflection.

The Cardinal will also be heading to Rome in early October to participate in the Synod on the Family, and did not want to leave the Archdiocese so soon after the announcement is made.

In light of these developments, the Cardinal feels it is essential that he has more time to consider carefully and thoroughly evaluate all that has been handed over to him. Hence, the announcement of the Cardinal’s Making All Things New decisions will be postponed to the beginning of November. The original date set to make the announcement was the end of September.

[Sep 21]   Catechetical Sunday

Sunday, September 21st is Catechetical Sunday, a day that we give recognition to our wonderful Catechists who teach our children about their faith. Our theme this year is: ‘Teaching about God’s Gift of Forgiveness’. We would like to invite all parishioners to help us celebrate the beginning of our new year at the 9:00 a.m. Mass.

Immediately following Mass, we invite all of the Religious Education parents to our 8th annual “Meet the Catechist” morning. There you can pick up your child’s curriculum, see the book they will be using for the year, have some coffee and doughnuts and meet new or reacquaint yourself with old friends.
