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!!!

SCHOOL NEWS
OUR HALLOWEEN CELEBRATIONS WERE A
GREAT SUCCESS thanks to the hard work of our moms
and teachers. The Pre-school and Pre-K paraded first thing in
the morning and were followed by our Kindergarten students.
The children enjoyed their class parties and celebrated with
their classmates. Students in Grades 1- 8 enjoyed delicious
treats prepared by the moms for this special occasion. Middle
school students took part in a pumpkin decorating contest
which was voted upon by children in K-5. Congratulations to
Olivia Capasso (8) - First Place and Isabella Vescera (7) Second Place!
SIXTH GRADE SCIENTISTS were challenged to use the
principles of static electricity to separate a mixture of salt and
pepper. In Spanish class they are learning about how family
life has a strong influence on young people. They learned
about the traditional Quinceanera celebration in many Spanish
speaking countries and had our own Quinceanera fiesta in
class.

for the Works of Mercy! Students participating in our Chess
Club are strategizing about their next move with Mr. Price's
help.

SACRAMENTS
Baptism
We celebrate the sacrament of Baptism every Sunday. Parents are welcome to have the Baptism celebrated either at a week-end Mass or at the Liturgy of
Baptism at 1:00 starting Memorial Day thru Labor Day. To make arrangements for Baptism please call Father Owen. If needed, you will be referred to
Deacon and Mrs. Vincent Leo to be scheduled for a Baptism Prep Class. Godparents must be active members of the church and attend Mass regularly.
Sacrament of Reconciliation
Every Saturday at 8:15 – 8:45 and 4:45 – 5:15 (or by appointment with Fr. Owen)
Sacrament of Marriage
Please contact Fr. Owen and set up an appointment. Any Catholic couple needs approximately a year to prepare for the Sacrament of Marriage, which
includes sessions with the Priest celebrating the marriage and attendance at Pre-Cana conferences.
Sacrament of the Sick / Hospital Visits
At St. Rose we are strongly committed to the spiritual care of the sick. Because of privacy laws, hospitals and nursing homes are not allowed to release
the patient’s religious affiliation. Therefore, we must depend on families of our sick parishioners to inform us of their whereabouts and condition. Please
notify the parish office of any need for a home or hospital visit.
RCIA
The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is a program for people who seek full initiation in the Catholic Church through the reception of the Sacraments of
Baptism, Eucharist and Confirmation, which are received at Easter Vigil. For information, please contact Fr. Owen at the parish office.
