LA PARROQUIA DEL SAGRADO CORAZON SACRED HEART PARISH a people called to be a Christian community and to stand on the side of GIAO X U THANH TAM life with all the struggling people of PAROISTE AN CHROI NAOFA Camden and the world. Gathering

1739 Ferry Avenue, Camden, NJ 08104 SUNDAY, MARCH 13, 2011

FIRST SUNDAY OF LENT Lent has begun...forty good days to use for sharpening and refining our lives. Individually, and as a parish, it is time for renewing all that is most important to us. We want to be ready for Easter morning. O Good One, make us worthy, thy Passover to see.

"The Spirit drove Jesus out into the desert, and he remained in the desert for 40 days tempted by Satan. He was among wild beasts, and the angels ministered to him." From Today's Gospel around God's table every Sunday, we celebrate that Christ is Risen and ultimately all is well.

ASHES 2011 Ashes were given out from 7 AM to 6 PM by Michael Doyle and Dennis Bajkowski. 287 adults and 216 children (including 208 Sacred Heart School students and 22 staff members) came for ashes including the 40 people who attended the 8:15 Mass. 97 people attended the Evening Service which included receiving ashes. THE RICE BOWL OF ASH WEDNESDAY to which people were generous, will continue during Lent on Friday nights. Put an empty bowl on your own table for Lent. Bring the gifts to church on Palm Sunday. Thank You! LENTEN SERIES 2011 BEGAN with Michael Doyle's reflection on fear and fortitude, courage and confirmation. Watching the great fire of old palm and 97 people so reverently placing ashes on their foreheads with a hand on the Cross, was sacred time of deep prayer and commitment. It was a sacred evening! BROTHER MICKEY MCGRATH On Friday night gave us, an extraordinary Lenten presentation, in his words and paintings, of Dorothy Day's life. The focus was the Holy Spirit's gift of counsel and right judgment. 75 people were present. It was an awesome presentation. God bless Brother Mickey! FIRST COMMUNION OPENING RITE Today, at the 10:30 Mass, the children who are preparing to receive their First Holy Communion in May were presented to the congregation. They are Dynasty Birriel, Joseph Degenhart, Lucas Dunn, Rachel and Mason Greathead, Henry Guerin, Aidan Kilgannon, Isaiah Polin, Lauren Ricci, Celeste Rodriguez, and Vincent Tran. We are all asked to pray for them as they continue their preparations for May. God bless them all !

We will view the very insightful film, Inside Islam and gain a better understanding of the religion and cultures of the Arab world.

Pray for Camden

HOUSE OF CHARITY TODAY! The Bishop's Annual Appeal 2011 - Our goal is $15,000 this year! If you forgot, bring it next Sunday. Cards are in the pews for those who didn't receive the letter in the mail this past week. The House of Charity supports the catholic social services of the Diocese of Camden.

making this week joyful, hopeful, and holy in a way that is nurturing and charming at the same time. Three different people in the challenges they faced but surely meeting in the center of their focus... Jesus Christ. Louise de Marillac, the co-founder of the Daughters of Charity, friend of St. Vincent de Paul, who said: "Love the poor, honor them, as you would honor Christ." She is known as the patron of Social Workers and has become more well known through the art work of Brother Mickey McGrath. She also was mentioned in our Pope's first encyclical. St. Louise, pray for us! Patrick, the public man on a mission to christianize a little island. Patrick has a lot of people and churches called after him. Not to mention religious orders, parades, places, coins, and medals. St. Patrick, pray for us! Joseph, the patron saint of travelers and pilgrims, of artisans, craft-makers, and laborers, of those inspired by dreams, patron saint of fathers, husbands, families, of hospice care and a peaceful death. He is very busy! St. Joseph, pray for us! They are great blessings in the world! They are good neighbors on the calendar of the saints! So celebrate them! Louise Tuesday! Rest! Patrick on Thursday! Rest! Joseph on Saturday. May you be blessed by them in the home you live in and on the mission you undertake outside of it!
