This Month's Knight of the Month goes to Jim Halsey for the exception job his did with fund raising and entertainment. He definitely deserves our gratitude!!
Thanks to Pete Marcellino for first coming up with the idea to donate a bench to the Little Egg Harbor Twp Municipal building and then following through and obtaining the bench to be placed in front of the Town Hall. The involvement of our council in the community is displayed at it's best with this bench and plaque. Great job!!
Our utmost gratitude goes out to Frank Colandrea and Naples Pizza for the donation of all the meatballs, garlic knots and sauce (gravy) to our spaghetti dinner. It would not have been near the success it was without your support. The food was second to none. Thank you so much!!
The Lund Family

Todd Sr. is both a reader and a Eucharistic minister at the 9:00 AM mass and young Todd is also a reader. The men in the family are very involved in the Boy Scout organization with Todd Jr. reaching the rank of Eagle Scout last year and his brother Paul on track to do the same this year. Paul has also made the decision to serve his country in a special way by joining the United States Navy. We wish him well in that endeavor. Thank you again to the Lund family for being a wonderful example of a family that lives out its Christian values.

The Difilippo Family

People who care about their parish community and support it anyway they can. Thank you Bill and Pat for the many years you have given to us.

Thank you too for being an example to all of a family that supports and strengthens Christian Family Life.
Ray and Mazie Wood
Wood. They have been members of our parish community for around 15 years. This has afforded them plenty of time to offer their time and talents to numerous organizations, committees and various fund raising functions. In case you were unaware, Mazie also happens to work in the parish office as our parish data coordinator. Stop by the office someday and say hello! In a recent Sunday Gospel Jesus taught us to “Give unto Caesar what is Caesar’s and to give unto God what is God” Ray and Mazie are a beautiful example of giving what is God’s to God. Thank you for that.

This family exhibits a strong commitment to each other and to the church. Thank you again for being examples to us all.
