FAITH IN OUR FUTURE – A DIOCESE INITIATIVE IN PLANNING
The Parish of St. Clement – Matawan is participating in the Diocese of Trenton’s planning initiative called Faith In Our Future.  

Part of the program involves parishes sharing ideas and collaborating with other parishes in what the Diocese calls a Cohort.  St. Clement – Matawan will be the largest parish in a cohort that includes Holy Family of Union Beach, St. Joseph of Keyport and Jesus the Lord of Keyport.  We have just completed our Cohort meetings and have submitted a draft final cohort suggestion to the Diocese.  The draft suggestion is listed here for your reading pleasure.  Cohort Suggestion Form (2nd Draft)(1)

BISHOP JOHN REISS MEMORIAL GOLF OUTING – MONDAY, JUNE 13, 2016
The Diocese of Trenton needs your help. With 54 priests currently retired in the Diocese of Trenton, and a projected 35 more scheduled to reach retirement age over the next 3 years, there is a need to meet the financial expenses projected in supporting our faithful aged, infirmed and disabled priests in the Diocese of Trenton each year. You can have a great impact here.
On behalf of Bishop David M. O’Connell, I invite you to the Bishop John C. Reiss Memorial golf outing which funds the Charitable Trust that has been critical in funding the costs incurred in the care of these holy and dedicated members of our Church family for many years. Your participation will essentially help maintain the priest’s retirement residence at Villa Vianney and support the healthcare needs of our retired priests.
