The director of the Catholic School Development Program spoke at the National Catholic Educational Association convention held in New Orleans April 26-28. CSDP Director Gregory J. Geruson presented “The $100,000 Ask: Soliciting Major Gifts,” a topic that is often described as an art and a science, the CSDP reported. Geruson spoke to educators, administrators and clergy members. More than 8,000 people were invited to attend the convention, which featured about 300 professional development sessions over three days. “You realize that there are thousands of people committed to ensuring that Catholic education continues its many successes,” Geruson said of his impressions of the convention. “You also see a real commitment on the part of school leaders and educators to think in new and different ways to help ensure the future of Catholic schools.” Geruson, who has spoken at NCEA gatherings in the past, said he hoped to spread the CSDP’s message. “Catholic schools don’t have to close. They can grow and thrive,” he said. The CSDP helps Catholic schools to help themselves by providing pro-bono guidance and management advice so they can be self-sufficient. The CSDP helps the schools to implement a new business model so they can regain their footing during challenging times and flourish. Founded in 2004 by Robert T. Healey, chief executive officer of the Viking Yacht Company, the program operates in 26 schools in southern New Jersey and six schools in Philadelphia.

CAMDEN — An unofficial team of about 30 volunteers, associates and physicians from Lourdes Health System participated in the Broad Street Run in Philadelphia on May 1. One of them was Frank Duffy, a resident of Magnolia and a member of Holy Child Parish in Runnemede. This was the second year that Duffy, a Lourdes volunteer for more than 20 years, ran with the Lourdes team. At age 80, going on 81 in September, Duffy served as an inspiration to all who ran with him. “I wanted to raise money for a good cause,” said Duffy, who used to be an avid runner years ago but wasn’t sure if he could even walk 10 miles when he first considered doing the Broad Street Run. “I ran a little each day to build up my endurance.” Duffy’s accomplishment had even more meaning considering he had undergone quadruple bypass surgery a few years ago. Today he is in good health, which allows him to volunteer at Lourdes every Tuesday and Thursday, rotating between the dialysis and medical affairs departments. “Hospitals need a lot of help and I know Lourdes appreciates me,” said Duffy. “I’m happy to volunteer because I get to meet many nice people.” At 6 feet and 175 pounds, Duffy has a runner’s body. His colleagues at Lourdes urged him to run in the Philadelphia event a year ago. “Last year, a few of my fellow Lourdes volunteers talked me into doing the Broad Street Run,” said Duffy. “I registered and began walking a few miles each week then added to it.” Duffy said he was glad he ran last year and wanted to go back for more this year. “It was quite an accomplishment, which is why I decided to do it again this year.” said Duffy. Duffy retired in 1990 after a career that started in the Navy, then took him to Pennsylvania Railroad, where he worked as a clerk. Later, he went into computer programming and became a systems analyst. He began volunteering at Lourdes more than 20 years ago. “I started volunteering for a couple of reasons,” said Duffy. “My late wife used to volunteer all the time and that inspired me. Also, I know all about helping out because I’m one of 14 children. I’m a middle child, with seven before me and six after, and the last two being twins. Lastly, I retired, was living alone and still wanted to interact with people and be social.” Duffy’s advice to other seniors who may be interested in running a race is this: “I am a big fan of walking. You can do it slow, fast, with someone or without. And at a race, you don’t have to necessarily run the whole thing. Sometimes I just walk quickly. It’s all about having fun and raising money for a good cause.” Duffy finished Sunday’s Broad Street Run in 2 hours and 48 minutes.

Camden Catholic student collects funds for victims CHERRY HILL — Lismarie Vega, a sophomore at Camden Catholic High School, concluded her second year of leading the school’s Denim Day fundraiser on May 2. Denim Day uses butterflies made of denim to promote awareness of rape and sexual assault. Vega sold butterfly candy bags, which she made, for $2 and permission for students to dress down for $5 on May 2. The efforts raised $1,555 for the Center for Family Services. Paul VI raises awareness, money to combat poverty HADDON TOWNSHIP – Members of the Paul VI High School community collected donations, held a fast and celebrated a Mass as their ways of participating in the national Operation Rice Bowl effort this Lent. Each Lent, Paul VI joins other United States Catholic communities in Operation Rice Bowl, an effort of Catholic Relief Services that includes donating, praying, fasting and learning about poverty in the world. Students collected donations on Fridays in religion classes. This year, the Religious Studies Department had a competition among classes to see who could collect the most money. Some students discussed the program with their families and brought in contributions of $20 and $50 weekly. The result was this year’s collection totaled more than that of any previous Operation Rice Bowl at Paul VI — $5,250. Students participated in a food fast, which began on the afternoon of March 25 and ended with Holy Communion received at a Mass at Paul VI on the afternoon of March 27. They gathered for a Holy Week Mass on April 19, attended by representatives from Catholic Charities and Catholic Relief Services, Jennifer Dyer and Dennis Fischer. The representatives received a check for the amount collected during Operation Rice Bowl at the school and spoke of the positive effect the contribution will have in fighting poverty and supporting the global poor. Assumption gathers pile of pennies to fight autism Paul Thomas, a sixth-grade student council representative at Assumption School in Atco, helps count pennies collected for autism awareness and research. ATCO — In honor of National Autism Awareness Month in April, the student council at Assumption School led its second annual Pennies for Autism service project by having a Penny War. A plastic bottle was set outside of each classroom and students tried to put as many pennies in their class jar as possible. The classes also put other denominations of money, including quarters and dollar bills, in their opponents’ bottles to reduce the number of pennies that could fit in those bottles. At the end, the class with the most pennies, minus the amount of the other currency, was the winner. The second grade had the most pennies. The first grade raised the most money. In total, the school raised $135 to combat autism.

WILDWOOD — Some 2,000 Knights, family members and friends traveled to Wildwood for the New Jersey Council Knights of Columbus annual convention, May 13-14. The convention began with a Mass celebrated at St. Ann Church on Friday morning by Bishop Joseph A. Galante. A dozen children, who recently received their first holy Communion, participated in a May crowning of the Blessed Mother ceremony at the Mass. Herbert C. Meyer, State Deputy, called the delegates to order on Friday at noon in the Wildwood Convention Center. The delegates represent the nearly 65,000 members of the Knights in New Jersey. During the convention meetings, the Knights elected the slate of State Officers for the 2011-2012 Columbian Year: — Daniel Rossi (Trenton) – State Deputy — Andrew Lipenta (Camden) – State Secretary — Bruce DeMolli (Paterson) – State Treasurer — Anthony Moskal (Metuchen) – State Advocate — Robert Hatler (Newark) – State Warden The delegates also passed a number of resolutions, most notably ones addressing three crucial issues in which the Knights have provided leadership in New Jersey. The first affirms their historic commitment to be unconditionally pro-life and to seek the restoration of full legal protection for the lives of the unborn, the sick, the disabled, the terminally ill, the elderly, the poor and all those affected by the current economic conditions. A related resolution calls on the state legislature to enact the “Full Disclosure Ultrasound Bill” (S-353/A-163) or a similar statute requiring physicians to provide patients the opportunity to undergo an ultrasound prior to an abortion. The second issue involves protecting marriage. In one resolution the Knights reaffirmed their support for traditional marriage and called upon the governor and members of the state legislature to enact SCR11/ACR14 that proposes a constitutional amendment to provide that only the union of one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as marriage. In another resolution the delegates called upon the senators and congresspersons of New Jersey to support the federal Defense of Marriage Act. The third issue relates to school choice and affirms their support for the “Opportunities Scholarship Act” (S-1872/A-2810). The resolution endorses opportunity scholarships as one component of an overall strategy to improve the quality of and access to education of the youth of New Jersey and urges passage and enactment of this legislation. At the closing banquet on Saturday evening, the audience was entertained by the Harmony Show Choir from the Mainstage Center of the Arts located at Camden Community College. They also heard a presentation by Chris Godfrey, former starting right guard for the Super Bowl XXI Champion New York Giants and founder and president of Life Athletes, Inc.

McBride Nayellis, left, and Jasmine Ortiz carry images of Our Lady of Guadalupe and Lady of Divine Providence to the front of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, Camden, on Tuesday evening, May. 17. Behind them are Lauren Bauer, left, and Stephanie Krivus carrying images of Our Lady of Manaoag and Our Lady of High Grace. Brother Mickey O’Neill McGrath made the paintings for the Cathedral, which were blessed by Bishop Joseph A. Galante that evening. CAMDEN — Bishop Joseph A. Galante dedicated four images of Mary created for the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception here May 17. The paintings were created by Brother Mickey O’Neill McGrath, an Oblate of St. Francis de Sales whose studio is in South Camden. They depict devotional images of Mary important to Puerto Rican, Filipino, Mexican and Dominican Catholics, and thus represent the diverse traditions of the faithful who currently worship at the cathedral. The colorful paintings are mounted on wooden frames modeled on the cathedral’s stained glass windows, which were imported from Germany. The frames were made by Chris Haw of Sacred Heart Parish, using wood from a pew of Holy Name Church in North Camden. The dedication ceremony, and the images themselves, are a sign of unity for the Parish of the Immaculate Conception, which now includes the former communities of Holy Name and Our Lady of Mount Carmel/Fatima. The images were placed at the base of the statue of the Immaculate Conception.

Cheryle Haines was born at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden, trained at its School of Nursing, got a job at Lourdes in Burlington County, and returned to Lourdes in Camden for the birth of her first child, Maddison Paige Cardone. CAMDEN — Cheryle Haines hasn’t strayed far from her birthplace. Born prematurely at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden, Haines grew up to graduate from Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing and become a critical-care nurse at Lourdes Medical Center of Burlington County. She recently returned to Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in Camden for the birth of her first child, Maddison Paige Cardone. “It’s been a wonderful experience. Everyone has been so welcoming,” said Haines, who switched OB/GYN practices in order to give birth at Lourdes. “I feel like I’m a big part of Lourdes.” Haines, 29, of Blackwood, was born 1 pound, 15 ounces and only 12 inches long — so small that she could fit in the palm of her mother’s hand. Born by emergency Caesarean section, she stayed in the Intensive Care Nursery (ICN) for eight weeks before being released for follow-up at Lourdes’ High-Risk Infant Follow-up program. “It’s very nice coming full circle,” said Dr. Margaret Fernandes, chief of neonatology who cared for baby Cheryle. “We have people who were in our unit come back and have their babies here. It’s a good testament to the care they’ve received here.” Haines says the life-saving treatment she received in the ICN inspired her to become a nurse. Haines worked her way through Camden County College and Lourdes School of Nursing to achieve her dream. “If it wasn’t for the doctors and nurses who took care of me, I wouldn’t be here. I wanted to give something back,” she explained. “Lourdes was my top school because I was born here and I wanted to work in the facility.” Especially touching during her hospital training, she said, were the babies in the ICN. “You look back and you say ‘That was me. I was one of those babies.’ The ICN nurses are always on point with the babies.” Haines graduated in May 2009 and assumed her career providing compassionate bedside care. “To the people you treat, you’re a complete stranger. But they trust you with their life,” she said, holding Maddison—born the morning of May 9 at 8 pounds, 6 ounces and 21 inches long. You have to do what you can to make their stay as pleasant as possible.” The timing of Maddison’s birth is especially appropriate. “This story is especially fitting as the baby was born during Nurses Week and we’re celebrating the 50th anniversary of the opening of Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing this month,” said Lisa Easterby, MSN, RN, CNE, dean and senior director of education at Our Lady of Lourdes School of Nursing.

Church law provides the opportunity for those claiming to be aggrieved by a decree to seek recourse in accord with the Code of Canon Law. It should be noted that Church Law (canon 1733) urges that parties in any dispute be encouraged to seek reconciliation even if formal recourse has been initiated. Canons 1732 through 1739 identify the process for seeking recourse against administrative decrees and most other individual administrative acts if no solution is able to be negotiated. In this instance, in which Most Reverend Joseph A. Galante, on May 20, 2011, in accord with canon 515 §2, DECREED, ANNOUNCED and PUBLISHED the merger of The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, 500 Green Tree Road, Glassboro, New Jersey and Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church, 161 Pitman Avenue, Pitman, New Jersey and the establishment of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish; the following process for seeking reconciliation and recourse against this decision is also published: 1. Before initiating formal recourse, a written petition from a person (canon 96) who considers himself or herself aggrieved by this decree must be directed to: Most Reverend Joseph A. Galante Bishop of Camden Camden Diocesan Center 631 Market Street Camden, New Jersey 08102 Fax: 856-338-0376 In this letter, the person must first seek relief by requesting revocation or amendment of this decree (canon 1734 §1). In this same letter, the person should supply their mailing address so that the Bishop may respond. This initial petition must be received within a time limit of ten (10) business days of the legal notification of this decree (canon 1734 §2). Bishop Galante directs that this decree is to be published in the diocesan newspaper the Catholic Star Herald on Friday, May 20, 2011, and announced at all weekend Masses in the parishes of The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church on Saturday, May 21, 2011 and Sunday, May 22, 2011. Therefore, the obligation to present in writing a request for revocation or amendment of this decree must be received by Bishop Galante’s office no later than 4:00 p.m., Monday, June 6, 2011. 2. Bishop Galante has a period of thirty days within which to respond to this petition for revocation or amendment (canon 1735). During this period of time, Bishop Galante may suspend the execution of this decree, or the person who considers himself or herself aggrieved may submit a special petition to the Congregation for the Clergy [see address below] for suspension of the execution of this decree (canon 1736). 3. In responding to the substance of the petition it is envisioned that Bishop Galante may take one of three courses of action (canon 1735): a. Bishop Galante may act in a way that satisfies the person who considers himself or herself to have been aggrieved. b. Bishop Galante, may, within thirty (30) days respond to the petition by either denying the request or issuing a new or amended decree that still leaves the person, who considers himself or herself aggrieved, dissatisfied. c. Bishop Galante may choose not to respond to the initial petition. In this instance, the time period for the person who considers himself or herself aggrieved to initiate formal recourse begins on the thirtieth day after the petition for revocation or amendment was submitted. 4. If the Bishop’s response leaves the person who considers himself or herself aggrieved still dissatisfied, then the author of the initial petition seeking revocation or amendment of this decree has fifteen (15) business days to initiate formal recourse to the Congregation for the Clergy (canon 1737 §2). 5. In this instance, the recourse is addressed to the Congregation for the Clergy. This can be submitted directly to the following address: Most Reverend Mauro Piacenza Secretary Congregation for the Clergy Piazza Pio XII 3 00193 Rome, Italy Or, through the office of the Apostolic Nunciature: Most Reverend Pietro Sambi Apostolic Nuncio to the United States 3339 Massachusetts Avenue, NW Washington, DC 20008-3610 Or, through the office of Most Reverend Joseph A. Galante: Most Reverend Joseph A. Galante Bishop of Camden Camden Diocesan Center 631 Market Street Camden, New Jersey 08102 Fax: 856-338-0376 Canon law requires that whoever receives the recourse to the Congregation for the Clergy must transmit it immediately (canon 1737 §1). If the author of the formal recourse sends it directly to the Congregation for the Clergy, Bishop Galante should be notified by theperson sending it to the Congregation that it has been filed. 6. The person making recourse against this decree has the right to engage the services of a canon lawyer (canon 1738). 7. If the Congregation for the Clergy does not act within three (3) consecutive months of receiving the recourse, canon law presumes that the response is negative (canon 57). If there has been no response within the three (3) months, or if the Congregation for the Clergy has issued a decision that leaves the person who considers himself or herself aggrieved still dissatisfied, then the person making the recourse has the right to make further recourse against the decision of the Congregation for the Clergy to the Apostolic Signatura within thirty (30) calendar days of the expiration of the three (3) month period, or thirty (30) calendar days from the receipt of the Congregation’s decision.

Greetings In The Lord Among the most important responsibilities of the Bishop’s pastoral office is assurance that there is suitable provision of divine worship and Catholic community life for Christ’s faithful people who are committed to his care. At the same time the pastor of each parish needs to be able to satisfy without undue difficulty the parochial responsibilities assigned to him by his Bishop. The following just causes support the establishment of a consolidated parish in the Glassboro and Pitman areas of Gloucester County, New Jersey: 1) to provide more effectively for the pastoral needs of the faithful of the parish of The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes in Gloucester County, New Jersey and the parish of Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church in Gloucester County, New Jersey; 2) to assure the vitality of parish life in this area; 3) to provide for a better stewardship of resources; and, 4) to provide for the optimum use of clergy, religious, and lay personnel. For the reasons listed above as well as the Core Team’s acknowledgement that both joys and sorrows have shaped this new community of love; because of the communality of the parish communities of The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, 500 Green Tree Road, Glassboro and Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church, 161 Pitman Avenue, Pitman; in response to the request of the pastor of these communities, Reverend James A. Casadia, to unite these parishes; the favorable advice of the local Vicar Forane; and having listened to the opinions of the Presbyteral Council about the needs of the Catholic Faithful in this area of Gloucester County, I have determined that the pastoral care of these communities will be fostered best by consolidating these individual communities and uniting them as one new parish. Accordingly, in virtue of the prescripts of canon 121 and canon 515, §1 of the Code of Canon Law, in order to provide more effectively for the spiritual welfare and the salvation of souls, having judged that sufficiently just causes are present, and having consulted the Presbyteral Council in accord with canon 515, §2, I hereby DECREE, ANNOUNCE and PUBLISH: The merger of The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, 500 Green Tree Road, Glassboro and Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church, 161 Pitman Avenue, Pitman and the establishment of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish. Reverend James A. Casadia will serve as the Pastor of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish for a term of six years commencing on the effective date of this decree. The parochial church of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish, which retains its proper title and the name The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, is located at 500 Green Tree Road, Glassboro, New Jersey. Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church will retain its own proper title and will be maintained as a worship site to be used by the merged community. The territorial boundaries of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish will be the same as the combined boundaries of the former parishes of The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church. The establishment of these parish boundaries is duly recorded at the Chancery Office of the Diocese of Camden, as: Start at the point where the Mantua – Harrison township line meets the intersection of Break Neck Rd and Jefferson Rd. 1. East on Break Neck Rd, which becomes Center St, which then becomes Blackwood Barnsboro Rd, to the point where Blackwood Barnsboro Rd crosses the Mantua Creek 2. Southeast along the Mantua Creek to the point it intersects Lambs Rd 3. East on Lambs Rd, which becomes Hurffville Grenloch Rd, to Hurffville Cross Keys Rd 4. East on Hurffville Cross Keys Rd to Fries Mill Rd 5. South on Fries Mill Rd to Glassboro Cross Keys Rd 6. West on Glassboro Cross Keys Rd to Rt 47 7. North on Rt 47 to US 322 8. West on US 322 to the point where US 322 crosses the intersection of the Elk – Harrison – Mantua township lines 9. Northwest from this point along the Mantua – Harrison township line to the point where the Mantua – Harrison township line crosses the intersection of Break Neck Rd and Jefferson Rd (point of origin) The goods and property of the parishes of The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes and of Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church, including their real estate and buildings, as well as their debts and obligations, shall be assigned to Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish. Further, the voluntary offerings of the faithful, as well as other grants, pledges and gifts which have been or will be made to either of these predecessor parishes will constitute revenue to Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish for the benefit of the pastoral life of this community of the faithful as well as the rightful support of those who minister to them. As of the effective date of this DECREE, the sacramental registers of The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, 500 Green Tree Road, Glassboro and Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church, 161 Pitman Avenue, Pitman will be closed and moved to the seat of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish, 500 Green Tree Road, Glassboro. All sacraments administered from that date forward will be recorded in new sacramental registers of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish. I approve the statutes of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish as submitted. As of the effective date of this DECREE, the financial accounts of The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, 500 Green Tree Road, Glassboro and Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church, 161 Pitman Avenue, Pitman will have been closed and transferred to the financial account of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish. As of the effective date of this DECREE, The Church of Our Lady of Lourdes, 500 Green Tree Road, Glassboro and Our Lady Queen of Peace R.C. Church, 161 Pitman Avenue, Pitman will be civilly consolidated under the laws of the State of New Jersey as Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish, Glassboro, N.J. This DECREE becomes effective on June 22, 2011. I instruct that this DECREE be communicated immediately to the parishioners of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish by Reverend James A. Casadia whom I have herein named their Pastor. This DECREE is likewise to be published immediately in the Catholic Star Herald and on the diocesan website. Given in Camden, on this 20th day of May 2011, at the Diocesan Center. Joseph A. Galante Bishop of Camden In cujus fidem… David J. Klein Chancellor

Bishop Joseph Galante formally announced today the establishment of Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish, formed through the consolidation of Our Lady of Lourdes, Glassboro; and Our Lady Queen of Peace, Pitman, effective on June 22. The announcement establishing the new parish was made in a formal decree, which is published in this edition of the Catholic Star Herald (pages 16-17). Father James A. Casadia has been named pastor of the new parish for a six-year term. The current Our Lady of Lourdes Church will be the seat of the new parish, serving the pastoral needs of the 2,240 families from Glassboro and Pitman, and Our Lady of Lourdes and Our Lady Queen of Peace Church will both be worship sites. The parish boundaries will be those of the two merging church communities. It is the 33rd decree issued by Bishop Galante in a diocesan-wide reconfiguration of parishes announced two years ago to strengthen parishes and improve pastoral care to the people of the Diocese of Camden. The reconfigurations are a result of more than a year of study by parish and deanery planners, who considered population and demographic trends, the number of diocesan priests available for ministry, Mass attendance and trends in religious practice. Members of the Mary, Mother of Mercy Parish Core team, who led the merger process, expressed optimism, amidst the uncertainty brought by needed change. Lou Granato, a member of Our Lady Queen of Peace for 51 years, said he was initially concerned about the merger and its impact “on our small parish.” Those fears were quickly dispelled, he said, after a few meetings with other team members, and he described the experience as “uplifting.” “I was able to experience not only the merger of two great parishes, but the combination of spirits, hard work and dedication of the members of the team,” said team member Carol Kelly, who is confident the new parish will “reach out to old friends and new and…become the vibrant parish for which we have all prayed and worked.” Team member Margie Harkins, meanwhile, acknowledged the “committed efforts of the members of both churches” in “maintaining the dignity and history of the past” but also in creating “a strong foundation for the future.” Another team member, Kathy Schultes, said, “The process has given us the opportunity to understand first hand the fears and misconceptions faced by parishioners from both parishes, the need to be open and honest in our communications and the eventual acceptance and anticipation of a new more vibrant parish.” Father Casadia said that during the process, there have been “joys and sorrows,” but these two feelings have “brought us together and are forming us into a new communion of love. As we celebrate each gift and overcome each obstacle we are incorporated into and become one body in the Lord.” “I am confident that together we will be able to accomplish far more than we ever could have separately. Already we have begun to experience the new vitality that has come from working together toward a common goal.”

In a letter to parents last week, Bishop Joseph Galante announced that St. Mary School, Gloucester, will close in June at the end of this school year. The letter noted that St. Mary’s falling enrollment — a 34 pecent decline since 2008 — and growing debt made it impossible to continue beyond this school year. The school faces a projected $150,000 deficit this year and a projected $250,000 deficit for next year. In his letter, Bishop Galante noted that “this announcement may be met with feelings of disappointment, sadness and even anger. I understand that any change of this kind is disruptive to families and the school communities. That is why the decision was made only after evaluating the realities confronting St. Mary School and only after consultation with pastors, parish leadership and school leadership.” To ease the transition for St. Mary students wishing to continue in Catholic education, the parishes that support St. Mary’s School will offer a $1,000 voucher for students to apply toward tuition at an area Catholic school next year. St. Mary School has served the Catholic community of Gloucester since 1859, when 20 students and a lay teacher gathered for classes in the rectory of St. Mary Church.

The Santacruzan, the pageant on the last day of Flores de Mayo, in honor of Reyna Elena and Constantine finding the True Cross in Jerusalem, was celebrated by the Filipino Apostolate at Our Lady of Hope Parish, Blackwood, on Sunday, May 22. Above, Reyna Elena (Queen Helena), represents Helena of Constantinople who found the True Cross. She stands with Rosa Mistica (Mystical Rose) on her right, and Reyna de las Flores (Queen of the Flowers) to her left. Standing in front are eight angels, each holding a letter to spell out “Ave Maria.” The celebration also was held at St. Gianna Beretta Molla Church, Northfield, on Sunday, May 15. The Filipino Apostolate celebrates Filipino “Tagalog” Masses twice a month rotating among 24 churches in the Diocese of Camden. The Filipino Apostolate of South Jersey is a religious initiative in solidarity with the diocese. It’s main concern is assisting parishes in involving Filipino Catholic migrants into local church life, with the “heartfelt desire of incorporating our own gifts of faith with others,” said Father Danilo M. Quiray, parochial vicar, Sts. Peter and Paul, Turnersville, and interim spiritual coordinator of the Filipino Apostolate of South Jersey. Photo by Alan M. Dumoff

Clergy, religious and lay Catholics stand outside St. Thomas More Church, Cherry Hill, on May 8, one year after the parish started hosting a monthly Mass for families from Ghana and other African countries. One year ago Father George Donkor Tang, a Ghanaian priest in residence at the Parish of St. Thomas More in Cherry Hill, started celebrating monthly Masses for Ghanaian families, with the hope that other African families in the Camden Diocese would also start attending. Twelve months ago, no Ghanaian or African attended St. Thomas More, but Father Tang was encouraged to start celebrating the Masses after meeting a Ghanaian woman, Baaba Yanney, who serves as Eucharistic Minister in Virtua Hospital Voorhees, where he is a chaplain. She offered to help. Father Tang also was encouraged by Msgr. Thomas Morgan, the pastor of the parish. The first Mass in Ghanaian tradition was scheduled for November 2008, and about 25 Ghanaians were invited. But inclement weather caused it to be cancelled, dampening the spirits of many. The first Mass was finally celebrated on May 9, 2010, and it was soon decided to continue having the Mass on the second Sunday of every month. Next, efforts were made to start including other African communities. At the year mark, on May 8, 2011, Father Tang celebrated with Father Joachim Ifezuo Oforchukwu from Nigeria, Father Bruno Dongo from Uganda, Deacon Vincent Okoro, and with families from Ghana, Nigeria, Cameroon, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Cote D’Ivoire and sisters from Zambia. Enthusiastic supporters from Puerto Rico and native-born Americans also joined the celebration. The celebration continued in the reception hall where everyone present got a taste of culinary delicacies from the various African communities.

Editor: A little while ago, Father Robert Gregorio wrote about Social Security and the stock market. Imagine a business owner, age 25, contributed $10,000 into Social Security between employee and employer contributions. By the age of 65, that business owner would have put in $400,000. However, if the person lived they would only get a maximum Social Security benefit of $27,876. If the same person died before collecting Social Security there would only be a couple hundred dollars paid by Social Security. If Social Security was privatized, and the same $20,000/year was put into a well-run mutual fund it would be a different story. The worst 40-year period for this particular fund, from 1934 until today, was 9.9 percent. Oh, that awful stock market! With $10,000 a year, earning an average of 9.9 percent for 40 years, it would have a value of $4,733,726. Obviously, they could pass this on to their family even after they took out a substantial amount more than Social Security would have given them. If they did not want to put all the money into the market they could put it in a whole life insurance policy that pays dividends and at age 65 including the dividends they have over $944,000, a 3.81 percent return. And a death benefit of over $1,724,000. By the way, if they become disabled the insurance company would pay the $10,000 for them every year until age 65. Don’t you hate it when logic gets in the way of a good rant? Howard Clark Braddock

CAMDEN — Project H.O.P.E. (Homeless Outreach Program Enrichment) provides healthcare services to the homeless population in Camden County. In 2010, Project H.O.P.E. had a total of 5,364 medical visits for 1,773 unduplicated homeless patients. In order to meet the growing needs of their patients, Project H.O.P.E. has recently added two new providers to its staff. Dr. Alishia Saunders-Richie has been the medical director of Project H.O.P.E. since February of 2010. She divides her time by providing direct clinical care to patients and to attending to the administrative tasks of the clinic. Dr.. Lynda Bascelli is a family practitioner who joined the staff in February and brings to the clinic her 14 years of practice in the medical field. Speaking about the growing clinical team at Project H.O.P.E., director Patricia DeShields said, “We are really excited to have Dr. Lynda Bascelli and Dr. Alishia Richie join our homeless health care team. Project H.O.P.E.’s most compelling feature has always been the talented and skilled professional staff who care about each and every person served. Dr Lynda Bascelli and Dr. Alishia Richie will strengthen our team with their commitment to quality of life and knowledge of best practices.” Project H.O.P.E. began in 1993 as an outreach project, with volunteers from the Lourdes Health System handing out sandwiches and providing health care on the streets of Camden. Under the Lourdes System, Project H.O.P.E. expanded to become a full time medical provider for the homeless located at the Bergen Lanning Health Center in Camden City. In 2008, Project H.O.P.E. began the transition into an independent non-profit. Project H.O.P.E. currently operates a full time health center providing comprehensive primary health care serving patients at three locations: its main site, Bergen Lanning Health Center, a satellite center at the Camden City Volunteers of America site, and through its Mobile Health Van which takes health care, mental health and substance abuse services to the streets and points where homeless people gather in Camden.

Frank Guaracini Sr., a successful business man and lifelong resident of Vineland, died peacefully at his home on Tuesday, May 31. Mr. Guaracini was born on May 19, 1918 in Vineland to Giuseppe “Joseph” and Maria “Mary” (DeMartino) Guaracini and recently happily celebrated his 93rd birthday with his whole family present. Mr. Guaracini attended the Minotola Public School and studied at the Wharton Business School, which prepared him for the grocery and marketing business. His parents, Joseph and Mary Guaracini, immigrated to the United States from Italy in 1905. They conducted their marketing business from their home and transported their merchandise by horse and wagon for many years. In 1927, Mr. Guaracini’s parents built a new market bearing the family’s name “Guaracini’s Market.” In 1948, the size of the store increased and the family moved the business to a much larger building on Wheat Road. Later the business became known under the Shop Rite name. In 1963, Mr. Guaracini and his family opened the ShopRite store on Delsea Drive in Vineland. In 1978, the Landis ShopRite Shopping Center was opened on Lincoln and Landis Avenue in Vineland. Mr. Guaracini also owned the Buena Vista Country Club from 1977-80; three hotels in Florida and various other business and real estate holdings including Frank’s Realty Co., Landis and Delsea ShopRites and Shop Rite Liquors in Vineland. A statement from the family announcing Mr. Guaracini’s death emphasized his character more than his many successes in business: “He represented the values of respect and love for family, generosity and hard work. He always demonstrated great friendship, kindness, compassion and giving of his own time for his family, extended family, neighbors, employees and many friends. He always thought of others before himself. Giving of himself and sharing all that he had to help others was his passion.” Mr. Guaracini supported and encouraged many organizations, churches, schools and charities, and he received numerous citations, awards and commendations. He was among the first group of recipients for the Italian Heritage Spirit of Achievement Award and he received the Gregor Mendel Award from St. Augustine Preparatory School, Richland, in 1978. Mr. Guaracini enjoyed golfing, gardening, landscaping, spending time with family and friends, going out to eat, and spending the winter months in Florida, most recently in his home in Boca Raton. Mr. Guaracini is survived by son, Joseph Guaracini: daughter and son-in-law, Joan Loretta and Joseph Marandino; son and daughter-in-law, Deacon Frank & Elizabeth (Vastano) Guaracini Jr.; companion, Elloree Channels; granddaughter and husband, Loretta and Steven LaPorta; granddaughter and friend, Sophia Marandino and Mike Laun; grandson, Frank Guaracini III; grandson and friend, Lawrence Marandino and Renee Cerione; granddaughters, Constance and Victoria Guaracini; great-grandchildren, Robert, Sophia and Christopher LaPorta; three sisters-in-law, Marie Albano, Joanne Guaracini and Frances Vingi; many nieces and nephews. Mr. Guaracini is  predeceased by his wife of 59 years Josephine (Tuso) Guaracini  in 2001; daughter Maryann Guaracini; brothers Salvatore, Louis and Joseph Guaracini; and sisters and their husbands; Louise and Walter Slusarczyk; Theresa and George Geri; Mary and Gino Pagano and Rose and Graziano Rossi Funeral home visitations will be held on Friday, June 3, 6-9 p.m., and Saturday 8:30-9:30 a.m. at Rone Funeral Service, 1110 East Chestnut Avenue, Vineland A funeral Mass will be celebrated Saturday, June 4,  at 10:30 a.m. at Sacred Heart Church, 1010 East Landis Avenue, Vineland.  Interment will follow in Sacred Heart Cemetery, Vineland.
