THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Our parish picnic was a huge success. It was so wonderful to see people of all ages having a good time and enjoying each other’s company. An event like this requires the help and assistance of so many people. I am grateful for all the volunteers who volunteered their time and talent for this event. In particular I would like to thank the picnic committee who organized every detail and spent countless hours in meetings to plan the picnic. The committee consisted of our pastoral associate, Deacon Jim Gillespie and his wife, Debbie, Sue Keogh and Carol Lewandowski. Thank you to all our parish ministries who had information tables, and to the youth of the parish who helped make the day so successful. A special thanks to our DJ, Joe Colletti, the Toms River Police Department, Casertano’s Cucina Catering and the great Township of Toms River. I always count my blessings that I am the pastor of such a amazing parish. Once again, my sincere gratitude to all.         Fr. Mark
