Congratulations to Deacon David . . .

. . . and a heartfelt farewell!

Congratulations to Deacon David Wejnerowski as he prepares for the Sacrament of Holy Orders. Deacon David has been serving at our parish on weekends since last September and we have enjoyed his presence and his ministry among us as he preached and assisted at Masses.

This weekend is Deacon David’s last weekend as he finishes his assignment to our parish. He is completing his studies at Saints Cyril and Methodius Seminary and will be graduating on Saturday, May 5. Then he is off to Metuchen, New Jersey. This is where he will serve. He will be ordained a priest for the Diocese of Metuchen on Saturday, May 26.

Congratulations to Deacon David on this very happy occasion in his life. Our Lady of Refuge Parish sends best wishes and many prayers that God will guide him and bless him throughout his priesthood. Thank you, Deacon David, for sharing your diaconate ministry with us. We feel very blessed to have been a small part of your priesthood formation. Be assured of our prayers for you for a wonderful and effective priestly life.

Welcome New Catholics!

At the Easter Vigil we welcomed six new members into full communion with the Catholic Church.

The catechumens who were baptized are Christian Anderson and Jason Fountain. Having already been baptized in another Christian denomination, Samantha Dalimonte made her profession of faith in the Catholic Church. The above three also received the Sacraments of Confirmation and Holy Communion. Jude Denina, Kristal Denina and Alan Maestri are already baptized Catholics and they were welcomed as full members of the Church through Confirmation and Holy Communion.

Congratulations. God bless our new fully initiated Catholics. They are also full members of Our Lady of Refuge Parish!
