Next Tuesday, May 21, from 7:00 – 9:00 PM, SEAS will host an Our Lady of Guadalupe Consecration Parish Awakening Night. What is an Awakening Night? An Awakening Night is an Evening of Prayer, Preaching and Testimony centered on the message of Our Lady of Guadalupe. Join us at SEAS’ Awakening Night next Tuesday!
With all that has gone on – and is going on – in our world and in our Church, I make this personal, special request that every parishioner come to this Awakening Night to show their support for – and, more importantly, to pray for – our Church, our Diocese and our Parish, our Bishop and all Priests, our Country and all Nations, for Vocations and for our Blessed Mother’s never-failing intercession for all of our hopes and dreams, needs and intentions.
Taking part in this Awakening Night is even more important for those who serve in any Parish Ministry at SEAS: Liturgical, Faith Formation [RF catechists, aides, hall monitors, Adult Faith, RCIA, CLOW, VBS, Altar Servers, Passion Play and Epiphany Pageant ministers, Wedding Prep, Baptismal Prep, Pre-Cana, Ushers], Social or Spiritual. For unless we who minister to the Parish are updated in the faith, we cannot minister to our fellow parishioners to the best of our ability. And, by seeing you, they might be prompted to join in ministry.
Lastly, this Awakening Night is a great way to understand why our Parish, with Saint Mary Church in Rutherford and Saint Justin Church in Toms River, is sponsoring a 5 day Pilgrimage to the Our Lady of Guadalupe Shrine in Mexico November 18-22, 2019. Having previously known little about this 1500’s Marian Apparition, the more I find out about it – the more meaningful the pilgrimage has become.
SO – PLEASE JOIN US AT SEAS NEXT TUESDAY NIGHT – MAY 21 – 7:00 – 9:00 PM.
Our Lady of Guadalupe, pray for us. Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton, pray for us.
