WHAT’S IN YOUR HEART?
Though the Letter to the Hebrews talks a lot about Jesus the High Priest, the perfect and holy
one, it does not ignore his humanity; in fact, the book embraces it. Jesus “was in the flesh”
and prayed “with loud cries and tears.” Jesus knew what it was like to be a human being. He
experienced fear and anguish. Yet his faith in “the one who was able to save him from death”
carried him through and even made him the source of eternal life for all.
What uncertainties and fears do you face? How can faith in God transform them? How can
you be a source of strength and encouragement for others?
PAG E TW O
FROM THE PASTOR
Jesus did not come to do away with suffering or remove it. He
came to fill it with His presence. – PAUL CLAUDELL
My Dear Parish Family,
Every year I find myself wondering whether the old saying
about “March roaring in like a lion and leaving like a lamb”
will be a reality. Believe me, after all the winter snows, I am
hoping for some mild weather as we slide into Spring.
And with the advent (yes) of Spring, we know that Easter is just
around the corner. As I mentioned in my talk on Wednesday
night, the services/liturgies of Holy Week are filled with beauty
and mystery as we celebrate the awesome gift of our faith. The
Sacred Triduum is made up of Holy Thursday, Good Friday
and Holy Saturday. I hope you all will make plans to join in
some or all of the liturgies. Over the years, I have heard so
many comments from people who had never before attended. In
variably they told me they were glad they made the commitment. Remember, in addition to the evening liturgies, we also
have morning prayer on each day, followed by the Sacrament
of Confession.
I am so grateful to all of you who supported the Ronan Tynan
concert this week. It was wonderful to share this great event
with all in attendance and to experience the joy his performance
brought.
God bless you.
Fr. Scott
p.s. Although they are almost sold out, it’s not too late to get

Full
Day Kindergarten
GRADE
SCHOOL...
St. Joseph Grade School
has a proven track record.
Public Schools across the nation
are moving to full day kindergarten.
They are just discovering what
SJGS has known all along.
Full day kindergarten is necessary
to deliver a well-rounded instructional
program for children…
especially in the first year,
where formal education lays a foundation
that leads to academic success
in years to follow!
When your child attends
St. Joseph Grade School,
the whole child is educated…
spiritually, academically, morally,
socially and physically.
St. Joseph’s staff of fully certified
educators raises standards
and guides students toward success,
one child at a time.
A one-on-one iPad program begins in
kindergarten this September.…
so consider St. Joseph Grade School…
“where the digital age flourishes!”

MENSAJE DEL PASTOR …
Mi Querida Familia Parroquial,
Todos los años me pregunto si el viejo dicho de "marzo ruge
como un león y se va como un cordero" es realidad. Créanme
que después de todas las nevadas de este invierno, estoy
anhelando por un buen clima a medida que entramos en la
temporada de primavera.
Y con la llegada de la primavera, sabemos que la Pascua está
a la vuelta de la esquina. Como mencioné en mi discurso la
noche del miércoles, los servicios y las liturgias de Semana
Santa están llenas de belleza y misterios, mientras celebramos
el maravilloso regalo de nuestra fe. El Triduo Sacro se
compone de los días Jueves Santo, Viernes Santo y Sábado
Santo. Espero todos hagan planes de acompañarme en
algunas o todas las liturgias. Con los años, he escuchado
muchos comentarios de personas que nunca antes habían
asistido, en los cuales expresan la satisfacción que sintieron al
hacer el compromiso de asistir. Recuerden también que
durante la mañana tenemos oración cada día, seguida por el
Sacramento de la Confesión.
Estoy muy agradecido a todos los que apoyaron y estuvieron
presentes en el concierto del famoso tenor Irlandes Ronan
Tynan. Fue maravilloso compartir este gran evento con todos
los que asistieron y experimentar la alegría que su
presentación causo.
Dios los Bendiga.
Fr. Scott

ANUNCIOS DE VIDA COMUNITARIA
SE ACERCA LA SEMANA MAYOR
Vivir la Semana Santa es acompañar a Jesús con nuestra oración, sacrificios y el arrepentimiento de nuestros pecados.
Asistir al Sacramento de la Penitencia en estos días para morir al pecado y resucitar con Cristo el día de Pascua. Lo importante de este tiempo no es el recordar con tristeza lo que Cristo padeció, sino entender por qué murió y resucitó. Es
celebrar y revivir su entrega a la muerte por amor a nosotros y el poder de su Resurrección, que es primicia de la nuestra.
Por ello te invitamos a que vivas el SACREMENTO DE LA CONFESIÓN, el Padre Carlos Aguirre esta disponible de
lunes a jueves 10:00 am a 3:00 pm.
VIACRUCIS: Es la meditación de los momentos y sufrimientos vividos por
Jesús desde que fue hecho prisionero hasta su muerte en la cruz. Al rezarlo, recordamos con amor y agradecimiento lo mucho que Jesús sufrió por salvarnos
del pecado durante su pasión y muerte. Te invitamos a meditar el "camino de la
cruz" de Jesús todos los viernes durante la cuaresma a las 7:00 pm (Bilingüe).
CRUCES DE PALMA: Las damas del Rosario estarán vendiendo cruces de
palma los días 21, 22, 28 y 29 de marzo después de todas las misas.
GRUPO MUSICAL: Para todos aquellos que quieran atreverse a cantarle a
Dios y quieran unirse a nuestra coral hispana, te invitamos a los ensayos todos
los domingos a las 4:00 pm en la casa amarilla detrás de la Iglesia (16 Lafayette, Toms River).
¡QUE TU VOZ ALABE AL SEÑOR!
BENDICIÓN DEL HOGAR: Si anhelas que tu hogar sea bendecido, el Padre
Carlos Aguirre esta dispuesto a visitar tu casa e implorar la protección divina de
tu hogar el día y la hora que para ambos sea conveniente. Si deseas hacer una
cita puedes comunicarte con la Oficina Hispana y hacer una cita o inscribirte al
final de la misa de 6:30 pm.
