A MESSAGE FROM ASSISTANT LAY DIRECTOR, RONNIE MARTELLA


Happy Advent!

It is one of my favorite times of the year, full of preparation, waiting and anticipation.  So much to do and all of it adds to the joy and fullness of the time.  And with all that going on, I extend to you an invitation, an invitation to come away for a little while.  To come away, to give yourself an Advent gift, to come and sit at the feet of Jesus and have a Mary moment - Mary who left the busyness of the kitchen and the preparations behind to sit and be present to Jesus. At this mid point of Advent what a good time to stop and reflect on what Jesus being born into our world, into our lives means to us - the absolute incredible truth of what that means.

So please come to Epiphany's Parish Center (aka the Little White Church on the corner) at 8PM on Friday 12/14/12.  If you are not able to join us please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers, never far from our hearts.

Let us open the gift of a blessed Advent given so freely by our loving God.

Peace,
Ronnie

A MESSAGE FROM LAY DIRECTOR, MARY ANN DOWD

On Sunday December 9th, it was my joy once again to welcome the new cursillistas of Trenton #122 on behalf of our community. Jesus called Peggi Fleming, Olga Vogt, Neddie Kringdon, Carol Frascella, Elizabeth McCartney, Suzanne Fay, Joanne Henderson, Helen Molnar, Elizabeth Cerbie, Maureen McMillan, Mary Ann Polizzi and each one answered the Lord to come away with him and the team of Trenton #122.

Just as the young teens walked with the cross in Spain some 70 years ago, and here in the Diocese of Trenton for 40 years, these woman joined the community in the Chapel singing the words to our beloved "DeColores", proving once again that The Cursillo in Christianity is not a work of man but of the Spirit of God.

Welcome Ladies as we make our pilgrim journey together in our 4th day.

Forever DeColores!

*Please note that due to the proximity to Christmas, our School of Leader has been changed to this Friday December 14th at Epiphany in Brick-Little white church on the corner of Herbertsville Road.  Hope to see all roosters, cluck hens, and babe chicks there at 8 p.m.
