St. Rose of Lima Church 312 Ridgedale Avenue East Hanover, New Jersey 07936 www.saintroseoflimachurch.org The Dedication of the Lateran Basilica November 9, 2014 As I had mentioned in my homily at all the Masses this past weekend, it is important to live good and holy lives and so gain entrance to the Kingdom of Heaven. Again, as I mentioned, it is important to pray for our beloved dead, particularly during the month of November. I encourage parents and grandparents to help their children/grandchildren to make a list of their beloved family members who have died and to pray for them during the month of November. Any parishioner who would like to place the names of their deceased family members on the All Soul’s envelopes, simply place them in the collection basket or give them to me after Mass. This past Tuesday we started our bereavement series. Anyone who has been bereaved in the last couple of years and has never attended our bereavement group, are welcome to attend. Please call the office or email Stephanie or me for more information. Last Wednesday I celebrated our annual Mass for all those who died and were buried from our parish within this past year. We all know that the first year of grief is very painful and as grieving families came and lit a candle for their loved ones, many tears were shed. However, as we saw all these beautiful candles brighten the altar area, we called to mind that the gift of these, our precious deceased family members, brightened not only our lives and the world in which they lived, but have now brought the light of their faith toward the glory of God. Congratulations to Teresa and Nicola Germinario on their 50th Wedding Anniversary. My prayers and blessings surround them as they renew their vows this Sunday during the 12:15pm Mass. We’re very gifted to have Mrs. Debbie Bregna as our trainer and coordinator of altar servers. Debbie takes her role very seriously and with great devotion and patience. She brings dignity and a sense of awe to the lives of our children as they serve at the altar of our Lord. She was assisted by several senior altar servers in this recent training program. A big thank you to Debbie and her young assistants for their great work on behalf of our altar servers. I’m delighted to welcome our new altar servers: Isabella Luciano, Kiersten Mas, Tiahna Mas, Gary Saitta, Charmaine Sebastian, Victoria Torna, Jim Vadakkedam, Peter Behrens, Alexis Pollard, Darya Stone, Mathew Griffin and Andrew Griffin. Congratulations boys and girls – we’re very proud of you!!!
