Dear Parishioners,

       Today, at 1:00 p.m., is the big   Plunge in Sea Bright to benefit Catholic Schools. All are invited to be there
for the plunge. Even if you are not going in the water         come and support the cause of Catholic Schools
in our own parish and in the surrounding area. From a few schools participating at its infancy a few years ago, to
now --- where we are seeing so many more parishes and schools joining in this fun event in the middle of winter.
Thank you to Jim Shaw and the other members of the Ancient Order of Hibernians for planning and making
this event happen among us. Catholic Schools Week begins on the 29th of January and more details about the
celebration will be in the bulletin over the next couple of weeks. The theme this year is “Faith, Academics,
Service”.

        Thank you to all who welcomed Fr. Juan Pablo, from our sister parish in Sololá, Guatemala, among us. It
was wonderful to have him as our guest in the rectory. Since our visit to Sololá last February, I have been looking
forward to his visit so that we could share with him life in our parish and listen to him tell the stories of what has
been happening in his parish since our visit. The relationship between the two parishes is growing and thanks to
our Twinning Team under the leadership of David Legg, this relationship will continue to be fostered into the
future. The sense and spirit of the universality of our Church is very tangibly experienced first-hand when we
connect with a particular parish in another culture in a different part of the world. Today’s Feast of the Epiphany is
a great connection for us on this subject and for us as a Parish to be responding in this way is wonderful.

        Thank you to all of you for your generous gifts to us, the priests, during the Christmas season and thank you
for your wonderful spirit of stewardship shown in the sharing of gifts with the parish during Christmas; you will see
a report on that in another part of the bulletin.

                              Tomorrow is the Feast of the Baptism of Our Lord. It closes the Christmas Season
                              and it is a Feast Day that we remember every time we pray the Mysteries of Light on
                              the Rosary. The very first one is an expression of faith in this event in the life of
                              Jesus. Pray that mystery of the Rosary tomorrow and honor the Feast. Reflect on the
                              Sacrament of Baptism in your own life and remember it with children. Show pictures
                              to children of their own Baptism and bring out their Baptismal Candle and Garment;
                              show them to your children and talk about Baptism.

       Another event that is coming up is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. Fr. Carlos is our leader this
year and he has scheduled our Prayer Service for Monday, January 30th at 7:30 p.m. in Mary, Mother of God
Church. Our neighborhood congregations are invited to join us in prayer that evening. Please note the date and
time and invite your fellow Christians in your neighborhood to join us.

        We have begun 2012 and it is a good time to repair some relationships in our families and among our
friends. Commit to repairing at least one relationship in the near future. It will be a great grace in your life to
achieve this newness.

       God bless all of you this week,
                                                                     Fr. Mike

As the members of the RCIA continue their Catechesis of the Seven Sacraments, may our faith-filled
parishioners, who live this message, continue to light the way.

The Sacraments have the mysteries of Christ’s life as their foundation. Sacraments are “powers that
come forth” from the Body of Christ, which is ever-living and life-giving. They are actions of the Holy
Spirit at work in His Body, the Church. They are “the masterworks of God” in the new and everlasting
covenant. SACRAMENTS ARE GIFTS TO US FROM A GOD WHO LOVES US – YEARROUND.

With God’s sanctifying grace (the GIFT OF DIVINE LIFE); our lives are transformed by our sharing in
the life of God. We are enabled to put our faith in God, to hope for His mercy and to love Him in His
people. We are also strengthened to handle any situation in our lives.

                HOW FORTUNATE WE ARE TO BE RECIPIENTS OF THESE GIFTS!

                                                                                                    +Sister Gloria

                                       Heart – Healthy Tips

Adopting a healthy lifestyle increases your chance of having a healthy heart. Three of the major risk factors for
heart attack are high blood cholesterol, high blood pressure and excess body weight.

Healthy food habits can help you reduce these risk factors. A healthy diet and an active lifestyle can help lower
your cholesterol and help control your weight.

                     Maximize Your Chances for a Healthy Heart

              Eat less saturated fat
              Eat less cholesterol
              Eat a variety of foods every day
              Prepare foods in a healthy way
              Become more physically active
              Maintain a healthy weight

                              Simple Steps to Get You Started

              Slowly increase the whole grains, fruits and vegetables you eat
              Switch from traditional snack foods to fruits and vegetables
              Eat fish, chicken or lean cuts of beef, pork or lamb
              Keep added fats to a minimum by using liquid oils when possible
              Bake or broil foods rather than fry them
              Try adding beans and nuts for protein
              Make all dairy choices low-fat or fat-free

Just by keeping these simple guidelines in mind, you can go a long way towards increasing your chances for a
healthy heart. You might even post these tips on your refrigerator and keep a copy in your wallet, so that you’ll
be reminded of heart-healthy choices wherever you are – whether it’s at home, the supermarket or a restaurant.

                                                                             -Courtesy of Marti Andrews, Phd,RD

                               EPIPHANY OF THE LORD




               Nurturing generous disciples to serve
                  as the hands and feet of Christ

                “They prostrated themselves and did Him homage.
          Then they opened their treasures and offered Him gifts of gold,
                           frankincense, and myrrh….”
                                                                           -Matthew 2:11




Notice the distinct order of events in the Magi’s visit. First they knelt before
Jesus and prayed to Him. Then they presented Him with their gifts. We, too, must
take time to pray before we presume to present our gifts to the Lord. We never
know what gifts God might be asking us to share.

        But when we kneel before Him in prayer, we will find the answer.

               The 39th March for Life will be on January 23, 2012




                                            Washington, D.C.
Please consider joining members of Saint Mary’s Community on Monday, January 23 rd to participate in the 39th
annual MARCH FOR LIFE. The March begins on the Mall and concludes at the United States Supreme Court
Building (approximately ½ hour walk). It is an extremely exhilarating and prayerful day!

        The MARCH FOR LIFE is the collective effort of grassroots pro-life Americans to assure that our laws
protect the right to life of each human being. I urge you to attend and experience a proactive, holy, and spirit-filled
day. We will attend 6:00 a.m. Mass at St. Mary’s Chapel and depart by bus immediately afterwards. We anticipate
returning by 10:00 p.m.

       The cost for transportation to Washington is $15.00 per person ($60.00 maximum per family). There are a
limited number of seats available. Please call John Lovasz – 732-787-2794 for reservations and further
information.




                        National Vocation Awareness Week
                               January 9 – 14, 2012
                                          Hear Ye!            Hear Ye!

It is our responsibility to encourage young people to be generous as they
discern the possibility of a call to service in the Church (Priesthood,
Diaconate or Consecrated Life), to marriage or the single life. Vocation
recruitment is everyone’s responsibility. All need to foster a culture of
vocations.

Just as Jesus needed to hear with his human ears the voice of the Father,
so our young people need to hear words of encouragement from parents,
other family members and the parish. God’s call comes through this way.

                                                                                         -Parish Vocations Committee

On Monday, January 23, 2012, at 10:00 a.m., the Mass for Giving Thanks to God for the

                 KIDS’ KORNER. . . .SHARING THE GOSPEL
God wants these gifts from you: love, forgiveness, and sharing. The wise men took Jesus gifts of gold, frankincense, and
myrrh. You may not have these to give to God. You can give God gifts more valuable than gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
Forgive someone. It is worth more than a piece of gold. Say NO to bad ways. This is worth more than frankincense. Share
with others. This is worth more than myrrh.

Prayer
Lord, help me do things worth more than gold for You.

Mission for the Week
I will straighten my room, clean my closet, and dust my furniture.
