    • Since we have added additional Masses during Lent, we have room for more Mass intentions and we will be offering them at a reduced rate of $10. We would like to fill up the intentions for the 7pm weekday Masses and they are a lovely way to remember those who have died or for a special intention.
    • We need to be even more vigilant when there is snow or ice on the pavement. Please be careful and think of the other cars.
    • For many years, OLM parishioners have been special friends to the Catholic Charities Fr. English Food Pantry in Paterson, where about 5,000 poor are helped monthly. Each week, the chili makers provide 55 pans of chili, every 4th Sun. non-perishable food is donated. Dave Puccia and the KofC run special supermarket food drives. Special thanks to parishioners who made an inner city abandoned lot become a produce garden despite many, many obstacles. Nancy Hirdt as project coordinator, Andy San Filippo as mover and shaker to get soil and make beds and Barbara Perino as Master Gardner advisor were catalysts who enabled the harvest of 700 pounds of corn, squash, tomatoes, jalapenos and more for the clients at the food pantry. We are a special giving parish, Sincerely, Ellen & Bill Sharkey

On behalf of our clients, staff and Board of Trustees, I gratefully acknowledge your generosity and for making Christmas a happy memory for so many people served by Catholic Charities.

A team member is assigned one or two months out of the year which is approximately 1 hour where the team member plays a video for families and supply refreshments. This year, our team is in need of facilitators for February, April and December. This is a wonderful ministry to meet the newest members of the Catholic Church. Baptism team are instrumental in this important time of preparation. Please call the rectory at 973-838-6838 x103.
