Saint Maximilian Kolbe Parish - Marmora, NJ




 


Mass Changes Begin February 25-26

On August 8, 2022, Bishop Sullivan decreed a course of action consolidating parish Mass schedules based solely on parish priest availability.  This consolidation is to take effect no later than July 1, 2023.

Bishop Sullivan reasoned that consolidating Masses to increase attendance will allow pastors to more effectively devote liturgical resources such as music, art and environment to the parish liturgy.  Bishop Sullivan explained that this is a decision for the near future of the Church in South Jersey, where “much sooner than later, most diocesan parishes will be served by one priest.”  While the decree states that Mass schedules do not need to be finalized until July 1, 2023, he advised pastors to begin planning for the new schedules immediately.

I presented Bishop Sullivan’s decree in the parish bulletin and social media. On October 13, I invited all parishioners to an open discussion of the parish pastoral council meeting with the intention of hearing our parishioners and their concerns in this regard.  Following this meeting, a committee was formed to discuss the parishioners’ concerns.  This committee met on November 3 and November 17.

As a result of these meetings, I provide you with the future Mass schedule for the Parish of Saint Maximilian Kolbe, commencing the First Sunday of Lent (February 25/26):

Saturday, 4pm, Church of the Resurrection (hereafter COTR)

Sunday, 8:00am, 9:30am, 11:00am (COTR)

A summer schedule (Memorial Day through Labor Day) would include a 9:00am Sunday Mass at Saint Casimir.

Daily Mass will be Tuesday – Friday, 8:30am (COTR)

Holidays and Sacramental occasions (i.e., Baptisms, weddings and funerals) would continue at Saint Casimir.

I recognize this schedule has a great impact on the life of our parish family particularly for those who worship at Saint Casimir Church.  I ask your patience as I implement this schedule.  I intend, to the best of my ability, to extend the fullest expression of the sacramental life granted by Our Lord to His Church and His people.  I ask your assistance as we support all affected by these changes.

Let us pray for one another and I ask for your prayers that more women and men will respond to God’s call to serve in His Church,

Father Pete
