VIVERE CHRISTUS AWARD
This Diocesan award is presented every June by Bishop Serratelli to a parishioner from each parish in the Diocese for outstanding involvement in their parish. This year’s OLM recipient is Marilyn Koziol.  She is active in numerous ministries and leads in several of them – Lector, Ladies Guild, Chili Makers, Religious Education, Old Folk’s Picnic, and Ladies Day of Reflection Committee.  Marilyn is a leader who encourages others to get involved by her example because of her positive attitude, down to earth demeanor and solid work ethic.   Congratulations Marilyn! We appreciate all that you do and so happy to have you at OLM!

SICK LIST
Instead of reading a long list of sick parishioners, relatives and friends every week in the general intercessions, we thought we would announce the new names once and then print them in the bulletin until they recover.  The general intercessions would remind us to pray for those whose names are listed in the bulletin.  What do you think?

FR. JOHN PIERCE UPDATE
Fr. John Pierce underwent heart surgery on Friday, April 17th for replacement of three valves.  He was released and is doing well he now is in Ringwood for rehab.  If you would like to send a card or note to be forwarded to him please address it: St. Anthony Friary 63 Bartholdi Avenue, Butler, NJ 07405.

“WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR”
On Thursday we celebrated the Ascension of Our Lord.  If you read the account of the “Ascension” in Acts, you will come to the line where the Apostles remain starring into the sky after Jesus ascends.  Two angels appear and ask the Apostles, “What are you looking for?”  Have you asked yourself that question lately, what are you looking for?  Are you looking for love, power, affirmation, forgiveness, joy etc., etc.?  Only in God will you find all of the above; Only in God will you be made “complete”.  You may spend your entire life looking for the “one thing” that will finally fulfill you.  Stop wasting your time looking for wholeness in all the wrong places.  In today’s gospel Jesus tells us as He prays His farewell discourse that all those who believe in Him will have complete joy.  Christ has all that you need and more.  He is a God of surprises for all those who love Him and believe in Him.  Want to know more about RCIA?  For more information please call Msgr. Carroll at 973-838-6838 ext. 100 or Carol Mangani at 973-283-2218.
