February 3rd - Blessing of the Throats
Many Catholics might remember Saint Blaise's feast day because of the Blessing of the Throats that took place on this day. Two candles are blessed, held slightly open, and pressed against the throat as the blessing is said. Saint Blaise's protection of those with throat troubles apparently comes from a legend that a boy was brought to him who had a fishbone stuck in his throat. The boy was about to die when Saint Blaise healed him.
Faith-sharing groups will meet once a week from the First Sunday of Lent ( Feb 18th). The groups could meet at the parish or in private homes, with day and evening option.
The past groups have proven to be a wonderful way to live the Lenten journey as well as to prepare for the renewal of Baptismal promises at Easter!
Contact Michele at 732-780-2667 #312 or if you are interested in either facilitating or joining one of these groups.
In the event that the Parish Office is closed and Religious Education classes or Masses must be cancelled due to inclement weather, loss of power, etc., we will attempt to keep you informed as follows:
