A Word from the Pastor …
Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
During this past week we have had the joy of seeing six young people from our parish, as well as Fr. Wojciech,
excitedly leave for Brazil to participate in the 28 th World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro. According to reports I have
received, the only challenge the youth have been meeting is the colder-than-usual weather (remember that South
America is in the Southern Hemisphere; hence it is winter right now). On Wednesday our youth took part in a
street-mission, when the temperature was only 33 degrees! Yet the warmth of Brazilian hospitality, I am told, is
more than compensating for the cold weather.
Those who have had the opportunity to watch some of the events on TV and the internet must have been impressed by the youthfulness of the Catholic Church. At every event since his arrival in Brazil on Monday, Pope
Francis has been able to speak to the heart of his audience. He is such a gift for the Church, and we all need to
continue to pray for his Petrine Ministry. The celebrations come to a close today Sunday with the concluding
open-air Mass celebrated by Pope Francis. If you happen to read this before Sunday, make sure to tune-in to your
TV or read the Holy Father’s homilies and speeches.
Meanwhile, we have been taking advantage of the summer lull to work
on projects that are difficult to complete during other times of the year.
Work on the Rectory entrance and waiting area was completed last week
(I thank all those who showed patience and understanding while work
was underway, especially the rectory staff who had to deal with hammering, banging and paint smell). Those who visited the rectory during the
past few days were amazed at the transformation of the Rectory reception area. It is part of our effort to make all visitors feel more welcome
when visiting us.
Furthermore, work has been underway during the past week on the
Church Main steps. Due to poor workmanship in the past and the severity of the elements (rain and snow), the joints connecting the slabs on the
Church parvis were letting in water, with the result that the stone slabs
started to move, making it pretty dangerous for people entering or leaving the Church. We have been truly fortunate not to have had any accidents during the past years. Through the work undertaken during this
past week, all the joints (five inches deep) were cleaned and replaced
with a new polymeric material which is guaranteed not to allow water to
seep through. Some of the slabs were taken out and realigned. This is
one of those projects that are hardly ever noticed, but are very impor- The Rectory reception area after renovation
tant for the safety of our parishioners and the appearance of the entrance to the Church.
A blessed Sunday to all,
Fr. Ivan Sciberras

A REMINDER ABOUT THE
SUNDAY COLLECTION
During the summer months, many parishioners leave
the parish for vacation or other activity. This causes
the weekly collection to take a hit during the summer. Meanwhile, the operating expenses of the parish
remain the same: paying of salaries, insurance premiums, utility bills, etc. In case you are going to be
away for any length of time this summer, please consider ways to continue to contribute to the parish. Among the different methods, you can consider
the following:
- If you receive weekly envelopes, drop them
off either before you depart or upon your
return
- Consider contributing what you would
otherwise give weekly in a lump sum
- Make use of an online Quick Pay system
being used by many banks. You would go to
your bank account online and transfer an
amount to St. Peter’s Church. In many cases
you would only be asked the name of the
recipient (St. Peter’s Church) and an email
address for the recipient ([email protected]).
We would then provide the bank with the
routing information for St. Peter’s.
Know that it is your generosity that permits the parish
to continue with its mission of making the love of
Christ visible in a suffering world.

July 15, 2013
Dear Rev. Sciberras &

On behalf of the Missionaries of the Sacred Heart, especially those serving in the foreign missions, I would like

POPE FRANCIS’ HOMILY
AT APARECIDA SHRINE IN BRAZIL ON WEDNESDAY
What joy I feel as I come to the house of the Mother of every Brazilian, the Shrine of our Lady of Aparecida! The day after my election as
Bishop of Rome, I visited the Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome, in order
to entrust my ministry as the Successor of Peter to Our Lady. Today I have
come here to ask Mary our Mother for the success of World Youth Day and
to place at her feet the life of the people of Latin America.
Six years ago the Fifth General Conference of the Bishops of Latin
America and the Caribbean was held in this Shrine. That Conference was a
great moment of Church. When the Church looks for Jesus, she always
knocks at his Mother’s door and asks: “Show us Jesus”. It is from Mary that
the Church learns true discipleship. Today, looking forward to the World
Youth Day which has brought me to Brazil, I too come to knock on the
door of the house of Mary – who loved and raised Jesus – that she may help
all of us, pastors of God’s people, parents and educators, to pass on to our
young people the values that can help them build a nation and a world
which are more just, united and fraternal. For this reason I would like to
speak of three simple attitudes: hopefulness, openness to being surprised
by God, and living in joy.
1) Hopefulness. The second reading of the Mass presents a dramatic scene: a woman – an image of Mary and the
Church – is being pursued by a Dragon – the devil – who wants to devour her child. But the scene is not one of death but of
life, because God intervenes and saves the child (cf. Rev 12:13a, 15-16a). How many difficulties are present in the life of every
individual, among our people, in our communities; yet as great as these may seem, God never allows us to be overwhelmed by
them. In the face of those moments of discouragement we experience in life, in our efforts to evangelize or to embody our faith
as parents within the family, I would like to say forcefully: Always know in your heart that God is by your side; he never abandons you! Let us never lose hope! Let us never allow it to die in our hearts! The “dragon”, evil, is present in our history, but it
does not have the upper hand. The one with the upper hand is God, and God is our hope! It is true that nowadays, to some
extent, everyone, including our young people, feels attracted by the many idols which take the place of God and appear to offer hope: money, success, power, pleasure. Often a growing sense of loneliness and emptiness in the hearts of many people
leads them to seek satisfaction in these ephemeral idols. Let us encourage the generosity which is typical of the young and
help them to work actively in building a better world. Young people are a powerful engine for the Church and for society. They
do not need material things alone; also and above all, they need to have held up to them those non-material values which are
the spiritual heart of a people, the memory of a people. In this Shrine, which is part of the memory of Brazil, we can almost
read those values: spirituality, generosity, solidarity, perseverance, fraternity, joy; they are values whose deepest root is in the
Christian faith.
2) The second attitude: openness to being surprised by God. Anyone who is a man or a woman of hope – the great
hope which faith gives us – knows that even in the midst of difficulties God acts and he surprises us. The history of this Shrine
is a good example: three fishermen, after a day of catching no fish, found something unexpected in the waters of the Parnaíba
River: an image of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. Whoever would have thought that the site of a fruitless fishing
expedition would become the place where all Brazilians can feel that they are children of one Mother? God always surprises
us, like the new wine in the Gospel we have just heard. God always saves the best for us. But he asks us to let ourselves be
surprised by his love, to accept his surprises. Let us trust God! Cut off from him, the wine of joy, the wine of hope, runs out. If
we draw near to him, if we stay with him, what seems to be cold water, difficulty, sin, is changed into the new wine of friendship with him.
3) The third attitude: living in joy. Dear friends, if we walk in hope, allowing ourselves to be surprised by the new wine
which Jesus offers us, we have joy in our hearts and we cannot fail to be witnesses of this joy. Christians are joyful, they are
never gloomy. God is at our side. We have a Mother who always intercedes for the life of her children, for us, as Queen Esther
did in the first reading (cf Est 5:3). Jesus has shown us that the face of God is that of a loving Father. Sin and death have been
defeated. Christians cannot be pessimists! They do not look like someone in constant mourning. If we are truly in love with
Christ and if we sense how much he loves us, our heart will “light up” with a joy that spreads to everyone around us. As Benedict XVI said: “the disciple knows that without Christ, there is no light, no hope, no love, no future” (Inaugural Address, Fifth
General Conference of the Bishops of Latin America and the Caribbean, Aparecida, 13 May 2007, 3).
Dear friends, we have come to knock at the door of Mary’s house. She has opened it for us, she has let us in and she
shows us her Son. Now she asks us to “do whatever he tells you” (Jn 2:5). Yes, dear Mother, we are committed to doing whatever Jesus tells us! And we will do it with hope, trusting in God’s surprises and full of joy. Amen.

SUMMERTIME REMINDERS
1) Appropriate Dress in Church - Most people who are
invited to a formal gathering (wedding, etc.) will wear
appropriate clothing for the occasion. Considering that when
we gather in Church, we stand in the presence of God, and it is
only appropriate that we should dress in the best that we
can. Please let us be mindful of our dress for the Lord's House
during the warm summer months. Tastes vary, yet we all agree
that certain types of clothing are not appropriate for
Church. Your cooperation and thoughtfulness in this regard are
greatly appreciated.
2) Be a good Neighbor - In these summer months, consider
dropping in or calling your elderly neighbors, especially those
who are homebound or living alone. Perhaps you can do a bit of
shopping for them, or just visit for a few minutes. God will
certainly bless your generosity.
3) Note About Air Conditioning - In these hot summer
months, should you notice that the A/C is “on” in the Church,
please help us maintain a comfortable temperature by keeping
the inside and outside doors of the Church shut after walking in
or out of the Church.

Movimiento XXIII (que perseveran en Rahway): Karen Perez, Elizabeth
Rodriguez y Fidel Rodriguez (vea la foto antes de su salida para Rio de
Janeiro). De Brazil, ellos enviaron este mensaje el lunes pasado:
Estamos en Rio acabando la “mission week.” Wow, es increible lo que
estamos viviendo. Hemos sentido el amor de Dios en muchas personas; hemos encontrado a Jesus en las personas mas humildes quienes
nos han atendido con mucho amor. Tenemos muchas experiencias
que contar. Nosotros ahora vamos en camino a Niteroi. Alli vivermos

DIA DE NUESTRA FIESTA INTERNACIONAL
“La fiesta Internacional de Cena y Baile”, que esta

hasta las 11:00 de la noche, es un “Evento Parroquial” para
recaudar fondos, y poder ayudar en los gastos para el mantenimiento de nuestros edificios. En los cuales nos reunimos para
nuestras diferentes actividades del ano. Sin estos edificios, no
podríamos reunirnos, para practicar nuestra fe y crecer en
nuestro amor a Dios, amor a nuestra familia y amor al prójimo.
Por tal motive pedimos a los lideres de nuestros grupos parroquiales que nos unamos para hacer de esta actividad
anual un ejemplo de nuestra unidad. Primeramente tratando
