Some 50 young people from Monmouth County gathered for the first Mission: Jersey service event July 26 in St. Gabriel Parish, Marlboro, where they participated in service projects to benefit local service organizations. The theme of this year's Mission: Jersey is "Bread of Life" and the projects, along with group discussions, will make connections with the Eucharistic Revival.

Upcoming Mission: Jersey events are scheduled for July 28 in St. Gregory the Great Parish, Hamilton Square; Aug. 2 in St. Barnabas Parish, Bayville, and Aug. 4 in Holy Eucharist Parish, Tabernacle.
