Father James Grogan has come to know and love Nativity Parish, Fair Haven, since his arrival nine months ago – and from the packed pews and smiling all around April 15, the feeling is apparently mutual.
“Since we’ve had Father Grogan here, the parish spirit is soaring,” said Patti Meyer-Cuje, Nativity parishioner for more than 40 years. “The man is absolutely incredible.”

“The force that created the entire universe is love. God is love, and he created all of space and time to put you in it. Spiritually, you are a huge deal! You are made in the ‘image and likeness of God’ because he wants to be in a love relationship with you.”
Such was Stefanick’s message as he presented his “Reboot! Live!” message to the more than 800 gathered April 11 in St. Leo the Great School gym, Lincroft.

On any given day, in just about every Catholic school, students are involved in the effort to help others.

But over the next few weeks, the 31 Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of Trenton will be dedicating themselves to a single service project, and the beneficiaries will be sick children and their families in about a dozen hospitals spanning Burlington, Mercer, Monmouth and Ocean Counties.
