Evening Prayer on Tuesdays: Praying in Lent


March 11th, 18th, 25th, April 1, April 8

On Tuesdays evenings at 6 pm, the community will gather for Evening Prayer in the Chapel, followed by a simple pot-luck supper. Members of our community will preside at this simple service of prayer.  Bring a dish to share for supper, and come and allow the word of God to wash over you, and pray with the assembled community, as our ancestors did before us. 

 

Baptism on Saturday, April 19th


We baptize primarily on those dates set aside for baptism, as listed in the Book of Common Prayer.  Since the presence of the community of faith is essential for welcoming the newly baptized into the church, baptisms take place in the principal service on the appointed Sunday.  Questions about baptism?  Please contact the office 908-766-2282 or office@sjotm.org. The 2014 dates for Holy Baptism

  • Saturday, April 19th - The Great Vigil of Easter
  • Sunday, June 8th - The Day of Pentecost 
  • Sunday, November 2nd - All Saints' Sunday
 

Serious Food Shortage at the Food Bank

 

The number of people needing food assistance in our area is way up.  The long lines of needy people at the Bank is very noticeable and the supply of food is low.  The combination of high unemployment, termination of federal benefits for the long term unemployed, and the frigid weather has made recent times very difficult for many neighbors in our community.  Here's how you can help.  Bring a few food items to church.  There is a special need for canned meats, stews, soups, tuna, and Spam.  Donations are delivered weekly to the Food Bank warehouse.
