The preacher will be the Rev. John W. Conner, Priest-in-Charge at the Church of the Incarnation, Morrisville, Pennsylvania. Fr.

Two members of the SoM Council attended his recent ordination to the priesthood.

To assist with planning and catering, those attending the luncheon are asked to reserve a place no later than Friday 6 May by contacting the parish office by email at or by phone at ‭(732) 449-6173‬. Please indicate the name, email address, and phone number of each person attending.

A $10 per person donation is asked to help cover the luncheon's cost. This can be paid by mailing a check ahead of time (Church of St. Uriel the Archangel, 219 Philadelphia Boulevard, Sea Girt N.J. 08750-2718; please write "Society of Mary" in the memo line), or by check or cash on the day itself.

Located on the north Jersey Shore near the intersection of the Garden State Parkway and Interstate 195, Sea Girt is easily accessible by car from New York, Philadelphia, and further afield. The nearest major airport is Newark Liberty International; the nearest Amtrak stations are Trenton and Metropark.

St. Uriel's hosted the 2015 SoM Annual Mass and Meeting - an occasion memorable for the parish's warm welcome and gracious hospitality. It will be a wonderful location for our first in-person American Region gathering since 2019. We look forward to seeing as many as possible of our old and new members and friends on this joyful occasion.

With all blessings for Holy Week and Easter,
