2 Page 2 il 19th, 2015 Saint Joseph Church Mission Statement We, the people of Saint Joseph Church, by the grace of God, born again in the waters of Baptism, seek to create a community where our mutual faith in Jesus as Lord and Savior, encourages us to continue growing as disciples. We believe that discipleship is a way of life. We strive to show that we are committed disciples, eager to welcome the stranger, feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and comfort the bereaved. Inspired by God s word and nourished by the Eucharist, we pledge ourselves to active discipleship all for God s greater glory and honor. Declaración de la Misión de la Iglesia de San José Nosotros, la gente de la Iglesia San José, por la gracia de Dios, nacidos de nuevo en las aguas del bautismo, buscamos crear una comunidad donde nuestra fe en común en Jesús como Señor y Salvador, nos anime a seguir creciendo como discípulos. Creemos que el discipulado es una manera de vida. Nos esforzamos por demostrar que somos discípulos comprometidos, deseosos de dar la bienvenida al extranjero, alimentar al hambriento, abrigar al desprotegido y confortar al afligido. Inspirados en la palabra de Dios y alimentados por la Eucaristía, nos comprometemos a ser discípulos activos para mayor gloria y honra de Dios.

5 il 19th, 2015 Page 5 From Saint Joseph Academy TUITION ANGEL FUND As we know, the downturn of the economy in recent years has had a tremendous impact on all of us. Many families who have students in Catholic schools feel the ever increasing pressures of meeting their family's needs along with the additional impact of tuition. We here at Saint Joseph Academy have established a "Tuition Angel Fund". The purpose of the fund is to help families who are struggling financially yet are committed to providing their child(ren) with a Catholic education. We look to our parishioners to help us keep this vital resource available to the young families of our parish. Please consider making regular donations to this fund knowing that you are helping spread the word of God through your generosity by supporting some very needy families and their children in Saint Joseph Academy. Donations may also be made in memory of a loved one or a friend with an acknowledgement being sent to their family. We even have children that look to share their blessings by asking their families to make donations to the "Tuition Angel" fund instead of receiving presents at birthdays, holidays, etc. Also, if your resources are such, please consider "adopting" a student, thus supporting a student(s) by paying all or part of the monthly tuition. We have many single parents and families who desperately would like their child to attend Saint Joseph Academy but do not have the resources to pay. Please feel free to add your check to the weekly Vestibule Area-lection basket in an envelope clearly marked "Tuition Angel" or contact the school office for more information at May God bless your generosity. Your donations can truly make a difference in a young child's life. Q: What did one toilet say to the other toilet? A: You look a bit flushed! Q: How does Darth Vader like his toast? A: On the dark side SJA Spotlight Kindergarten Mrs. Susan Kraljic & Mrs. Marylou Porcaro Hello Spring! As the Kindergarteners anxiously await the changes in weather, we have been working on changes in the environment. These changes involved learning about recycling. Each student found recycling items and created a special project that we got to show and tell to the class about. In Math class we have been learning about adding, money, telling time, and learning how to read a calendar. We have just about finished meeting all our Superkids friends in our reading program. We even know a song and dance about each one. Lastly, we have learned all about Lent traditions, Easter, and we have discussed the importance of caring. We hope everyone has a blessed and blessed Easter season! A Spring Fling Scavenger Hunt Does it seem like forever since you last went for a walk? Forgotten what your neighborhood looks like? A scavenger hunt may be just the thing to get you and the kids out and revisiting whatever your neighborhood has to offer. Try some of these suggestions or create your own list of things to find.

Frogs or toads A clap of thunder Music from an open car window A woodpecker A bird singing Kids playing in the playground Music from an ice cream truck A lawn mower Sights of spring: Can you see spring around you? Collect these sightings... A plant emerging from the ground A bud on a tree or bush A flower in bloom People sitting outside Open windows Open coats Spring flowers Spring fruit
6 Page 6 il 19th, 2015 SAVORING THE EXPERIENCE One of the wonderful things about vacations is the time we spend two or three weeks afterward savoring the experience, sharing vacation photos and memories with our family and friends. This kind of reflection puts us back in touch with the original experience and reminds us of the relaxation and wonder the vacation afforded us. Today, on the Third Sunday of Easter, the Church blesses us with reminders of what we celebrated two Sundays ago. All three readings are reflections on the meaning of the death and resurrection of Christ. One of the threads running through these reflections is that the purpose of the Lord s suffering, death, and resurrection was to save us, to forgive our sins. We are given fifty days to ponder this reality fifty days to savor the experience of Christ s dying and rising for us. Copyright J. S. Paluch Co. TODAY S READINGS First Reading The author of life you put to death, but God raised him from the dead (Acts 3:13-15, 17-19). Psalm Lord, let your face shine on us (Psalm 4). Second Reading We have an Advocate with the Father, Jesus Christ the righteous one (1 John 2:1-5a). Gospel Thus it is written that the Christ would suffer and rise from the dead on the third day (Luke 24:35-48). READINGS FOR THE WEEK Monday :Acts 6:8-15; Ps 119:23-24, 26-27,29-30; Jn 6:22-29 Tuesday: Acts 7:51 8:1a; Ps 31:3cd-4, 6, 7b, 8a, 17, 21ab; Jn 6:30-35 Wednesday: Acts 8:1b-8; Ps 66:1-3a, 4-7a; Jn 6:35-40 Thursday: Acts 8:26-40; Ps 66:8-9, 16-17, 20; Jn 6:44-51 Friday: Acts 9:1-20; Ps 117:1bc, 2; Jn 6:52-59 Saturday:1 Pt 5:5b-14; Ps 89:2-3, 6-7, 16-17; Mk 16:15-20 Sunday: Acts 4:8-12; Ps 118:1, 8-9, 21-23, 26, 28, 29; 1 Jn 3:1-2; Jn 10:11-18 SAINTS AND SPECIAL OBSERVANCES Sunday: Third Sunday of Easter Tuesday: St. Anselm Wednesday: Administrative Professionals Day; Earth Day Thursday: St. George; St. Adalbert Friday: St. Fidelis of Sigmaringen; National Arbor Day Saturday: St. Mark SABOREA LA EXPERIENCIA Una de las cosas maravillosas sobre las vacaciones es que después de nuestro regreso nos pasamos dos o tres semanas saboreando la experiencia, compartiendo las fotos y recuerdos con nuestra familia y amistades. Esta clase de reflexión nos vincula nuevamente a la experiencia original y nos hacer volver a vivir el descanso y las maravillas que la vacación nos proporcionó. Hoy, el Tercer Domingo de Pascua, la Iglesia nos da la bendición de unos recordatorios de lo que celebramos hace dos domingos. Las tres lecturas son reflexiones del significado de la muerte y resurrección de Cristo. Uno de los hilos que unen a estas reflexiones es que el propósito del sufrimiento, la muerte y la resurrección del Señor fue para salvarnos y perdonar nuestros pecados. Tenemos cincuenta días para contemplar esta realidad cincuenta días para saborear la experiencia de la muerte y resurrección de Cristo por nosotros.copyright J. S. Paluch Co.

7 il 19th, 2015 Page 7 PASTOR S DESK ESCRITORIO DEL PASTOR Happy Easter. We continue in the Easter season as we also seek the ways that the Lord invites us to new life. During this time the Lord invites all of us to see how we can follow His call and hear His voice in a new and deeper way. I encourage all of us to try to seek the Lord more deeply during this time. May the Lord continue to bless each of us during these days. I am glad to let you know that all the work on the church roof has been completed. All the slates that needed to be replaced have been replaced and we should have not more leaks in the church. Thanks to your generosity in the monthly Maintenance Collection we were able to pay for the roof. Thanks again for your generosity to this collection. We are hoping to start to put in a new heating and air conditioning system into the church. Both systems are very old and it is not worth putting new money into them at this time. The new system will be much more efficient and should pay for itself in a few years with the money we will be saving on oil. It is good we are able to deal with these issues as they arise so that we can save money in the long run. We will also be installing a handicap ramp into the Church over the next few months. This project is being given by an anonymous donor from the parish. This should make it much easier for our parishioners who finds the front steps a burden and for our wheelchair bound parishioners as well. Over the next few weeks we will be celebrating many of the Easter sacraments. Archbishop Hebda was here for Confirmation on Friday night. We will be having our First Communion children receiving over the next few weeks as well. May the Lord continue to bless all those receiving the Easter Sacraments. Finally, Deacon Paul Importico will be ordained Saturday, May 23 rd at Sacred Heart Cathedral in Newark. He will celebrate his First Mass here on Sunday, May 24 th at 10:00 with a light reception afterwards. Please put this date in your calendar so you celebrate with Deacon Paul this joyous occasion.

Durante este tiempo, el Señor nos invita a todos a ver cómo podemos seguir su llamada y escuchar su voz de una manera nueva y más profunda. Os animo a todos a tratar de buscar al Señor más profundamente durante este tiempo. Que el Señor siga bendiciendo a cada uno de nosotros durante estos días. Me alegro de que sepas que todo el trabajo en el techo de la iglesia se ha completado. Todas las pizarras que necesitaba ser reemplazada han sido reemplazados y que deben tener no más fugas en la iglesia. Gracias a su generosidad en el mantenimiento de la colección mensual pudimos pagar por el techo. Gracias de nuevo por su generosidad a esta colección. Estamos esperando para empezar a poner en un nuevo sistema de calefacción y aire acondicionado en la iglesia. Ambos sistemas son muy antiguos y no es digno de poner dinero nuevo en ellos en este momento. El nuevo sistema será mucho más eficiente y debe pagar por sí mismo dentro de unos años con el dinero que nos ahorraremos en el petróleo. Es bueno que somos capaces de hacer frente a estos problemas que puedan surgir para que podamos ahorrar dinero en el largo plazo. También vamos a instalar una rampa para discapacitados en la Iglesia en los próximos meses. Este proyecto se está dada por un donante anónimo de la parroquia. Esto debería hacer que sea mucho más fácil para nuestros feligreses que encuentre el frente pasos en una carga y para nuestros feligreses de sillas de ruedas con destino también. En las próximas semanas estaremos celebrando muchos de los sacramentos de la Pascua. Arzobispo Hebda estaba aquí para la Confirmación en la noche del viernes. Vamos a tener a nuestros niños de Primera Comunión recibir en las próximas semanas también. Que el Señor siga bendiciendo a todos los que recibieron los sacramentos de Pascua. Por último, el diácono Paul Importico será ordenado Sábado, 23 de mayo en la Catedral del Sagrado Corazón en Newark. Él va a celebrar su primera misa aquí el domingo, 24 de mayo a 10:00 con una recepción de luz después. Por favor, ponga esta fecha en su calendario para que celebres con el diácono Paul esta ocasión feliz. Paz, P.

9 il 19th, 2015 Page 9 Dear Parishioners, I hope that this letter finds you well as we continue to celebrate the Easter season. There is something new that we would like you to consider. Over the last few years, several parishioners have asked if they could make their financial contributions to the parish by credit card or some type of online payment. After careful review, the Parish Finance Committee and I are pleased to introduce online giving as an option for parishioners. We are confident that online giving can have a significant effect on future financial planning and budgeting for the parish. Therefore, I encourage all you to consider using online giving for their weekly Offertory Donations. Similar to other parishes that have implemented online giving, we are asking you to make a weekly or monthly offertory donation. For example, instead of making 52 weekly donations, you can authorize twelve monthly recurring payments that are regularly charged to your checking or savings account or your credit card/debit card. Other churches parishioners have found this to be a simpler and more consistent way of donating. Additionally, recurring electronic payments will enable our parish to better plan and manage its finances. For example, during the summer months, collections were lower as families were busy with activities that took them away from Saint Joseph Church. Online Giving will enable families to continue with their regular donations even when they are away from our parish. Of course, we will continue to offer traditional ways of giving for parishioners who prefer those methods. If you choose to use online giving and would still like to have something to put into the collection basket at weekly Mass, envelopes will continue to be sent to parish households. Simply write E on your regular envelope to indicate that you have already given Electronically online. Please be assured that your electronic donations will continue to be posted to our records for your tax purposes. Thank you for your continued generosity to our parish and for prayerfully considering this method of giving to the good works of our parish. Please note no tickets will be available for purchase at the door. FOR TICKETS PLEASE CONTACT NANCY CONFORTI The easiest way to access and learn more about online giving is through our parish website Sincerely, Fr Timothy Graff Pastor
