Another Hat for Father Dan Brings an Opportunity for Families
to Pray Together
Bishop O’Connell has appointed Father Dan as Assistant Vocation Director for the Diocese of Trenton. Father Dan is very excited to assist the Bishop and the Diocese in this ministry. In the near future, St. Mary of the Lakes will begin a new ministry as well, entitled “Pray for Vocations.” Six icons are being painted by a parishioner who will donate them to the parish. Six families will be able to sign up to pray, as a family, for vocations for one week. More information on how to participate in this prayer ministry will be forthcoming from the pulpit, in the bulletin, and here on our website.
A new ministry is beginning at St. Mary of the Lakes, “Baby’s First Christmas.” On the Feast of Epiphany, after the 10:30 a.m. Children’s Mass, families of babies baptized since last Christmas will be invited to the Emmaus Center to enjoy breakfast provided by the Knights of Columbus. Our Young Adults will host the event and present each family with a “Baby’s First Christmas” Christmas tree ornament. These families will receive a “save the date” mailing in the weeks to come.
