    RCIA is the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.
      RCIA is a process, not so much a program, as a journey of faith.  It is centered on nurturing a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ and the Church He founded.  The process provides interested adults and older teens the opportunity to gradually become a part of the Catholic Church, and receive the Sacraments of Initiation:  Baptism, Confirmation and the Eucharist.  Who is RCIA for?
    1.  Persons who have not been Baptized and desire to become Catholic.
    2.  Persons baptized in another Christian tradition who desire to become   Catholic.
    3.  Baptized Catholics in need of 1st Communion and/or Confirmation
    NOTE:  This is the time of the year to sign up for RCIA!  Please call Carol Mangani at 973-283-2218.

    Do you need to complete your sacraments?  Do you know someone considering converting to the Catholic faith?  If you are interested in learning more about the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA) please contact Carol Mangani at 973-838-6838 for more information.  Also, please click here for more information.

    • Parish Mission on the Gospel of Luke is coming to OLM. Entitled Luke Live – is a dramatic proclamation for people of all ages by Paulist Fr. James DiLuzio, Paulist priest, missionary and actor. Fr. James travels throughout the country with his powerful recitation of Luke’s Gospel. Don’t miss this opportunity of powerful evenings encountering the Gospel the way the early generations of Christians encountered it: stories about Jesus shared from the heart with hymns, songs and preaching. Mark your calendars - Nov. 5, 6 & 7TH at 7pm in the church. To accommodate all parishioners, there will be a morning session following the 8:15 Mass in the chapel. More details, see the website www.LukeLive.com
    • We are looking for volunteers to help at the 9am Masses. You would only serve when it works for your schedule. Adults and confirmed HS students welcome. Confirmation students needing service hours can assist as helpers. NO PLANNING - WE PROVIDE ALL MATERIALS! Email Katy Schrope at olmchildrensliturgy@olmchurch.org or visit our website for info. olmchildrensliturgy.wikispaces.com
    • If you are interested in bringing up the offertory gifts at any Mass, please contact our ushers at the beginning of the Mass.
    • Next weekend is 4Get Me Not weekend. It was heartbreaking recently to step into the Fr. English Food Pantry to see so many empty shelves while about 50 people where waiting to "shop." There is a great need for canned tuna, meats, rice, dried and canned beans but any non-perishable food is welcome. Keep in mind that small packages, rather than large, can be distributed to more people. Thank you!
    • For his Star Service hours, Michael Hasselmann of Troop 277 in Kinnelon, developed and assembled Prayer Books for our youngest parishioners! Michael and a fellow Scout from his troop distributed some of the books to the children at the Children’s Liturgy last weekend. The are some extra books in the narthex - please take one for your children! Thank you, Michael!! For more information about Boy Scouting in Kinnelon, please email troop277cc@gmail.com or troop277sm@gmail.com.
    • The 2017 CROP Walk is on Sun., Oct. 22nd. Registration is at 1pm in St. Joseph’s Church Hall, Comly Rd., Lincoln Park. The walk begins at 1:30pm. Please consider walking, making a donation, or sponsoring a walker. Be part of the OLM team fighting hunger. Sign up forms are available in the narthex after Mass. Please contact John or Samantha Ramsden at 973-519-3992, (jmram595@optonline.net) if you have any questions
    • Do you have used/unused Religious Christmas cards that you don’t need? If so, please donate them to the Ladies Guild so we can make tags for our 2017 Giving Tree. Please leave them in the narthex box labeled Christmas Cards. Questions contact Maureen Galligan at meg4808@optonline.net. Thank you!
    • Would you sign up for an hour of prayer for the success of our retreat, our candidates and our team? A sign up sheet is in the narthex listing the hours of the retreat so that you may choose any hour you wish. We would like you to be part of our experience by praying for us while we are on the retreat and to ask for God’s blessing as we reflect, renew and strengthen our faith. Please pray that the Holy Spirit will enter as we share our faith journey with each other on Oct. 20th and 21st.
    • The Women’s Cornerstone Team was blessed at the 9am Mass last Sunday. They have been working for a year and half preparing for this retreat so please pray for them.
    • If you are currently an usher please forward your name, address, phone, email, preferred communication (email/call/ text), and the current Mass you attend. If you would like to become an usher please email Bob Morrisroe with the same info. Even if you cannot do every week, it helps to know that we have additional hands for Holy Days, Communion, Confirmation, etc. Thank you Bob Morrisroe (bobmorrisroe@optonline.net)
    • The services provided by our Catholic Charities agencies are too long to list in our bulletin – but here are just a few: emergency housing for people in extreme poverty, out-patient and residential substance abuse treatment, group homes for disabled adults, outreach to veterans who are homeless, family counseling, etc. Your gift to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal helps bring this important work to life. In fact, Catholic Charities receives the largest percentage of Appeal funding. Your help is needed to continue providing this urgent care. Please be as generous as you are able to the 2017 Bishop’s Annual Appeal. For your convenience, you can make an online gift or pledge at www.2017appeal.org. Thank you!
