    Amen, I say to you, whatever you did for one of the these least brothers of mine, you did for me.


  • 34th Annual christmas concert


    It is with unwelcome sadness that I need to announce the unexpected cancellation of the appearance of the The Christmas Festival Orchestra of New Jersey at the 34th Annual Christmas Concert at Our Lady of the Magnificat Church.  Maestra Karen Pinoci the Director of the orchestra was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor which was surgically removed this past week.  As a result, the musicians union has canceled the orchestras’ appearance this year.
    While the Christmas Festival Orchestra will not appear, the show must go on and we will present an entertaining program with selections from our Senior and Junior Choirs and our own maestro, Michael Pierce, including several festive sing-alongs for the entire group.  In addition, the Jordan Piper Jazz Trio will perform again this year and bring along the famous Peanuts Christmas tunes we all know and love.  Lastly, we will include a few additional surprises which we are confident will delight the crowd!
    While we hope you will join us for our alternate Christmas program, we understand your disappointment in this unforeseen change in the program.  If you would like a refund of your tickets and/or sponsorship please call George Casagrand at the Parish office (973-838-6838 ext. 102). 
    Please keep Karen in your prayers during the Christmas Season.  We wish you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
