The 146th Annual Diocesan Convention — January 31, 2020 — February 1, 2020
“One of the blessings of our tradition is the relationship each parish has with the other 96 parishes in our diocese. No one parish is alone, goes its own way, or is forgotten because all parishes are connected to each other. “ This year’s convention is being held at The Hilton Meadowlands in East Rutherford. A reflection and invitation from Bishop Hughes is posted on the diocesan website. The transcript is also posted on the large bulletin board outside the Meeting Room.
SOUPER BOWL OF CARING — Feb 2: 9AM - 3PM
More than 30 years ago, Souper Bowl of Caring began with a simple prayer from a single youth group: “Lord, even as we enjoy the Super Bowl football game, help us be mindful of those without a bowl of soup to eat.” St. Peter’s has been a part of this event since the mid-1990s. Donations can be brought to St. Peter's Haven between 9AM and 3PM.
Interfaith Brotherhood-Sisterhood of Bergen County Brunch — Mon, Feb 17, 2020 10AM — 2PM
This event is a wonderful way of sharing a meal together, getting to know others, and getting new ideas of how to work together. Each year the hosting, including the choice of speaker, rotates to a different faith group – this year our Muslim neighbors. In the current environment of rising anti-Semitism and other forms of anti-religious violence – both physical and verbal – it’s particularly important for Christians to participate in interfaith events such as this one. I know that many of you are involved in your own local groups and events, and am thankful for your outreach. Detailed information for reserving a ticket is on the flyer in the Meeting Room.
