World Day of the Poor

Posted on November 01, 2017 in: General News

At the end of the 2015-2016 Jubilee Year of Mercy, Pope Francis established the “World Day of the Poor,” a new celebration to be held annually on the 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time.  All of the faithful are invited to join Bishop Checchio at Evening Prayer for the first World Day of the Poor on Sunday, November 19 at 5:00 pm at St. Francis of Assisi Cathedral in Metuchen. This will be an occasion for our community to reflect on how poverty is at the heart of the Gospel and an opportunity for those who work to aid, care for and comfort those in greatest need to be affirmed, inspired and sent forth with a  renewed commitment to building a “culture of encounter” and bringing people together across differences with tenderness and solidarity.  Please consider attending!
