The Dedication of the Lateran Basilica
November 9, 2014
Dear Sisters and Brothers:
Last month, I sent a letter to 2627 parish families explaining the current financial situation of the parish and the importance of using either
online giving or weekly offertory envelopes. A census form, along with a return self-addressed, stamped envelope was also included.
To date, out of the 2627 letters that were mailed, only 235 census
forms have been returned. Twenty-four out of the original 44 parish givers
have registered with Faith Direct. Thankfully, 23 new parishioners have
signed on.
 Have you returned your census form to the Rectory?
 Have you registered for Faith Direct (e-giving) or registered for
offertory envelopes?
Please take a moment to complete the census and return to the Rectory office as soon as possible.
Census Forms and the link to Faith Direct can be found on our website
at www.stphilipsb.org
If you would like to call in your census info, please contact Kim at the
Rectory at 201-843-8880.
Please note that if you are now enrolled in online giving with Faith Direct, there are Offertory cards on the tables in the rear of the church to
place in the collection basket.
Thank you for your continued support of the parish. I see that some
of you have increased your offerings. I would like to see that all of our parish families increase their offerings. Thank you for contributing your time,
talent and treasure to St. Philip the Apostle parish.
God Bless You,
Fr. Theesmas
PRAYER FOR OUR TROOPS
Heavenly Father, On this day help us remember those who gave of themselves
to keep us safe and secure. Enkindle in our conscience a desire to serve those
who served their country selflessly. Give us the grace to aid those who have
given aid and protection to others both here and overseas. Let us never forget
the causes for which they fought or the bravery they showed on the battlefield.
May we always be mindful of those who paid the price for our freedom, just as
your Son gave His life to free us from the bondage of sin. Amen.

Leadership and Life
“We are blessed in the 21st century with crystal-clear photographs and action films of the living
realities within their pregnant mothers. No one with the slightest measure of integrity or honor
could fail to know what these marvelous beings manifestly, clearly, and obviously are, as they
smile and wave into the world outside the womb. In simplest terms, they are human beings with
an inalienable right to live….They are not parts of their mothers, and what they are depends not
at all upon the opinions of theologians of any faith. Anyone who dares to defend that they may
be legitimately killed because another human being “chooses” to do so or for any other equally
ridiculous reason should not be providing leadership in a civilized democracy worthy of the
name.”--Cardinal Edward Egan, Archbishop of New York (Press release, August 26, 2008).

Native communities from coast to coast. Schools, parish religious
education programs, and diocesan ministries depend on your generosity to help them spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ!
ALTAR SERVERS
All Altar Servers should be sure that your cassock and surplice remain on the designated
rack in the church. If you currently maintain these garments at home, please return
them to the Church. Going forward all garments should be kept in the church as they
will be cleaned once a month. If you would like to donate the cost of a cassock in
stewardship and in memory of a loved one, the cost is: $55 per cassock.
Please contact Loretta with your availability for December/January,
by Nov 24th. Also, please advise of your availability for the Feast of
the Immaculate Conception (12/8), Christmas & New Year’s day.

We are called to help God build His kingdom on earth. We are His eyes, ears,

you give generously in the offertory collection each week?
