WEEKLY READING

TWENTY-THIRD SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME

Again Jesus left the district of Tyre
and went by way of Sidon to the Sea of Galilee,
into the district of the Decapolis.
And people brought to him a deaf man who had a speech impediment
and begged him to lay his hand on him.
He took him off by himself away from the crowd.
He put his finger into the man’s ears
and, spitting, touched his tongue;
then he looked up to heaven and groaned, and said to him,
“Ephphatha!”— that is, “Be opened!”

PARISH SUMMER FESTIVAL

The annual Christ the Redeemer Summer Festival was held on Sacred Parish grounds from July 28-August 1. As always, months and months of planning and hard work were required to make this event a success. Each Tuesday during the year, many CTR parishioners made pierogi that were frozen and safely stored in preparation for the festival.

FROM THE PASTOR’S DESK

Dear Parishioners and Friends,

This year, our Parish Festival was a great success! For 47 years, our Parish Festival has provided fun, excitement, and an opportunity to work hand-in-hand with fellow parishioners. For many of us, working side-by-side has given us a chance to meet and make friends with others whom we might never have otherwise come to know.

Despite the hard work, heat, and humidity, we raised additional funds to help fulfill our parish mission: "To be a community of love, a family, that joyfully proclaims and bears witness to the Gospel, and that serves the poor and one another."

By the work of our hands, whether in a spiritual ministry, in our Parish, or tending to the needs of those who are lacking in basic necessities, we are practicing true stewardship. The same can be said of all who volunteered to 'work' at our Festival. These hard-working Festival volunteers gave of their time and talents to support Christ the Redeemmer Parish and its needs and for that I'M GRATEFUL.

Now we begin preparations for CTR Parish's 3rd Annual Oktoberfest which will take place on the evenings of September 18th and 19th, 2015. Please join us in this effort to make CTR Parish financially stable. Consider this as an opportunity to do your part to "Steward" Christ the Redeemer for another wonderful year.

Please sign-up as an Oktoberfest volunteer by calling the Parish Office (908 725 0072) and give your name and phone number. Don't miss this opportunity to combine fun and stewardship.

In Christ the Redeemer,
Your pastor
