Pope Francis says destroying the environment is a sin
In his call for urgent action on climate
change, Pope Francis laments that humans
are turning the planet into a ‘wasteland full
of debris, desolation and filth’. 
He proposes that caring for the environment
be added to traditional Christian works
of mercy such as feeding the hungry and
visiting the sick.

As you are probably aware, church attendance during
the summer months tends to drop off as vacations and
weekend sporting events often conflict. On the other hand,
the services we provide within the parish and for the larger
community continue year round, as do their associated
expenses. Thus, your consistent financial support of our
parish is vital to achieving our stewardship mission.
The easiest way to be sure that your gift of treasure reaches
us, even when you can’t be here, is through enrollment in our
electronic offertory program: Faith Direct. If you have not
yet enrolled, please consider doing so this month.


Enroll today!   www.faithdirect.net and use our parish code NJ23.  

Thank you in advance for your support and for using Faith Direct!
