The Immaculate Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church in Scotch Plains has announced plans to par- ticipate in RENEW 2000, joining hundreds of Catholic parishes in the United States and around the world in celebrating 2000 years since the birth of Christ.
RENEW 2000 is a three-year pro- cess designed to help people grow spiritually, to reinforce and strengthen Christian values, and to work for justice and peace, accord- ing to church spokeswoman Jacqueline Boyle.
The effort focuses on the creation of small, faith-sharing communities within the parish. These communi- ties comprise groups of eight to 12 people who will meet to reflect on their faith, share prayer and life ex-
periences, and work toward RENEW 2000 goals.
The groups will meet once a week for six weeks, with a total of five six- week sessions over the course of three years. Groups are now forming and will begin meeting in October, the spokeswoman said.
RENEW 2000 sign-up cards are available at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Church. Anyone who would like to join a small community are asked to fill out a card and place it in the RENEW 2000 box.
In addition, a "Sign-Up Sunday" will be held on September 13, at the beginning of a four-day parish mis- sion to kick off RENEW 2000.
For more information, please call the Immaculate Heart of Mary parish office at (908) 889-2100.
