Parishes, students and outreach agencies from around the Diocese are doing their best to make the celebration of Easter joyful, especially for persons in need. Such examples included students involved with the Catholic Campus Ministry at The College of New Jersey, Ewing, shown in photo at left, who gathered after Mass March 27 to make Easter baskets for the Mount Carmel Guild of Trenton. The baskets, filled with candy and holiday foods, are distributed to families from Trenton and the greater Mercer County area every year at Easter.  Father Chris Colavito, chaplain, purchased the candy and the baskets for the students to assemble, a service project he hopes will turn into an annual event.  Photos below left and above show staff and volunteers at Mount Carmel distributing Easter baskets to their care receivers on March 30. In top photo on right, the parish community in St. Denis, Manasquan, collected goods and filled 128 baskets that were given to the Division of Child Protection and Permanency as well as Mercy Center and Oceans Family Success Center, both Asbury Park, and 180 Turning Lives Around, Hazlet.
