I want to share with you the news that Bishop Sullivan has appointed Fr. Philip Ramos, AM, as the new parochial vicar at Christ our Light. Father Ramos is a religious order priest of the Disciples of Mary in the Philippines and is currently the Assistant Formator at their order’s House of Formation in San Pablo City, Laguna, Philippines. Father Ramos will be the second priest of his order to serve in the diocese of Camden. Father Mike DeLeon is currently the parochial vicar at St. Andrew the Apostle Parish in Gibbsboro. The Disciples of Mary is a religious community known to Bishop Sullivan because of their work in the Archdiocese of New York. Bishop Sullivan has invited Fr. Ramos to serve in our diocese and I am very pleased that Bishop has assigned him to our parish. I am happy to welcome Fr. Ramos to Christ Our Light. His official start date is July 1. However, I expect that he will arrive at our parish sometime in the next few weeks.
Fr. Tom Newton

Are you, or have you at some point thought about becoming Catholic? Maybe you have tagged along with someone going to Sunday Mass and have had a "this is where I belong" feeling while there. If so, why not ask the questions and get the answers to help you decide. In the RCIA program this is called the Inquiry Phase of discernment and is taking place now. If you are interested, we would love to talk with you. For more information please contact Barbara Long at 856-810-0881.
