Lent is the 40-day season of penance in preparation for the celebration of the redemption of the human race by Jesus Christ. Lent begins Ash Wednesday, Feb. 13, and ends on Thursday, March 28, followed by the Sacred Triduum, March 28-30 and Easter Sunday, March 31. 1. The days of both Fast and Abstinence during Lent are Ash Wednesday and Good Friday. The other Fridays of Lent are days of Abstinence. On a day of Fast, only one (1) full meal is permitted. Those between the ages of 18 and 59 are obliged to fast. On a Day of Abstinence, no meat may be eaten. Those who have reached the age of 14 are obliged by the law of abstinence. 2. The obligation to observe the laws of Fast and Abstinence "substantially," or as a whole is a serious obligation. 3. The Fridays of the year, outside of Lent, are designated as days of penance, but each individual may substitute for the traditional abstinence from meat some other practice of voluntary self-denial as penance. 4. The time for fulfilling the Paschal Precept (Easter Duty) extends from the First Sunday of Lent, Feb. 17, to the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity, May 26, 2013.

Blazon: Arms impaled. Dexter: Sable, three Latin crosses bottony Or, debruised at base with as many elephants' heads erased Argent; in chief a crescent of the last. Sinister: Azure, upon a saltair Gules fimbriated Argent, a windmill of the last charged with two swords in saltair Or; within the quarters to chief The Holy Spirit at flight Proper, to dexter a trefoil Vert fimbriated Or, to sinister a tower or the last and to base a chalice of the last beneath a broken host of the third. Significance: The episcopal heraldic achievement, or bishop's coat of arms, is composed of a shield, with its charges (symbols), a motto scroll and the external ornaments. The shield, which is the central and most important feature of any heraldic device, is described (blazoned) in the 12th century terms, that are archaic to our modern language, and this description is done as if being given by the bearer with the shield being worn on the arm. Thus, it must be remembered, where it applies, that the terms dexter and sinister are reversed as the device is viewed from the front. By heraldic tradition, the arms of the bishop of a diocese, called the "Ordinary," are joined to the arms of his jurisdiction, seen in the dexter impalement (left side) of the shield. In this case, these are the arms of the Diocese of Camden. These arms are composed of a black field on which are placed three silver elephants' heads, which are arms derived from the arms of Charles Pratt, First Earl of Camden and Lord Chancellor of England, and for whom the See City is named. In 1773, Jacob Cooper, a descendant of William Cooper, laid out a town and named it for Lord Camden in commemoration of his friend, as a strong defender of American colonial rights. Three golden crosses accompany the elephants' heads, in honor of the Blessed Trinity and it affords a "difference" to make the shield peculiar to the Diocese of Camden. Above the conjoined elephant heads and crosses is a silver crescent to honor the Blessed Virgin Mary in her title of the Immaculate Conception, titular of the Cathedral Church in Camden. For his personal arms, seen in the sinister impalement (right side) of the shield, His Excellency, Bishop Sullivan, has retained the design that was adopted at the time of his selection to receive the fullness of Sacred Orders as he became Auxiliary Bishop of New York. The field of Bishop's design is blue to honor our Most Holy Mother, Mary. Upon the field is placed a red saltair ("X") that is outlined (fimbriated) in silver (white) and which is charged with a silver windmill. The red saltair on a silver field is known as a "Cross of Saint Patrick," to honor the titular of the Cathedral Church of the Archdiocese of New York and the saltair is charged with a silver windmill recalling the earliest heritage of the area that New York was originally known as New Amsterdam. Overall, at the center of the design are two golden swords also per saltair, to represent that the dominant charges in the Sullivan and Hayes family designs is a sword and that by using these charges, His Excellency honors the heritage that has come to him from his parents, John J. and Hanorah (Hayes) Sullivan. In the quarters of the design that are formed by the saltair, to chief is a representation of the Holy Spirit, taken from the arms of His Excellency's ordaining prelate, His Eminence Cardinal Egan, to signify that in ministry all is done under the leadership of the Holy Spirit. To the left of the design (dexter) is a green shamrock, outlined in gold, to honor Bishop Sullivan's Irish heritage, and to the right (sinister) is a golden tower to honor the Bishop's particular patron, Saint Teresa of Avila. In base is a golden chalice with a broken silver (white) host above. This representation is the central mystery of Catholicism, the Most Holy Eucharist, joins with His Excellency's motto, "In the Breaking of the Bread," taken from Saint Luke's account of the disciples meeting Jesus on the road to and at Emmaus, represents that it is in communion with one another and with our Divine Lord, that all faith and all faith-based actions find their meaning and purpose. The device is completed with the external ornaments which are a gold processional cross, which is placed in back of the shield and which extends above and below the shield, and a pontifical hat, called a "gallero," with its six tassels, in three tows, on either side of the shield, all in green. These are the heraldic insignia of a prelate of the rank of bishop by instruction of the Holy See of March 31, 1969. Artwork and description prepared by Deacon Paul J. Sullivan, Permanent Deacon of the Diocese of Providence.

Holy Trinity's eight graders traveled to the New Brunswick Law Center on May 21 to present the case which won them second place in the Statewide Mock Trial Competition. The case entitled, "Williams vs. South Ridge BOE," consisted of a family suing the school administrator for not preventing cyber bullying of their daughter, an Asperger child, on Facebook. The award was presented by the New Jersey State Bar Foundation in recognition of Excellence in Promoting Understanding of the Law and Our Justice System. The students honored were Meredith Amato, Nicole Baraban, Fiona Hughes, Arianna Mullary, Jenna Nace, Joseph Skotnicki, Hollie Jones and Gianna Leonen. In recognition of their award for the best Engineering Process during the Greater Philadelphia SeaPerch Challenge held at Drexel University on April 26, six students from Holy Trinity's SeaPerch team were invited by the American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) to their most recent professional conference, the Intelligent Ships Symposium X (ISSX), held May 22. The six students from the Westivlle school who attended were Sean Barrett, Joseph Blaylock, Daniel Gomes, Joseph Skotnicki, Kyle Griffiths and Paul D'Alessandro. In addition to interacting with professional engineers, the group saw a real-world remotely operated underwater vehicle (ROV) from Drexel and visited the University of Pennsylvania's GRASP lab to see various designs of autonomous robots. Ashley Patten, a senior at Wildwood Catholic High School, successfully made it through to the second day of competition at the NCFL Grand National Forensics Tournament in the category of Dramatic Performance. Only the top 48 students in each category make it to the second day of competition at this heavily attended competition. Ashley is only the third student in school history to compete on Sunday at NCFL Grand Nationals. Ashley, who has competed at NCFL Grand Nationals for four years, finished the competition ranked 30th overall in Dramatic Performance, the highest ever ranking for any WCHS student in any category. The National Catholic Forensic League is dedicated to supporting high school speech and debate activities for public, private and parochial high schools in the U.S. and Canada. NCFL sponsors the annual Grand National Tournament on Memorial Day weekend, offering six forensics events and four debate events. During St. Augustine Preparatory School's May 19 graduation services, four members of the Class of 1963 were awarded "Golden Diplomas" in a ceremony celebrating 50 years since their graduation on June 6, 1963. Those in attendance: Donald Healy, Jerry Colucci, Lou Cresci and Larry Neri. The Class of 1963 included: John Arnone, Gerald B. Colucci, Louis Francis Cresci, Donato Anthony De Novellis, Vincent Giacalone, Francis N. Giordano, Donald M.
