      My family and I would like to thank all of you who offered prayers, sent Mass cards, called, visited or attended the funeral for our mother, Ann Lambro. Your thoughtfulness was appreciated. My mother had a happy and long life; and her passing was painless and peaceful. This is such a blessing from God and one I believe we all yearn for. Thank you again for your expressions of comfort and support. Blessings, Fr. Ed

      October 10 & 11th - Several Sources Shelters has four (4) prolife shelters for mothers who seek to give God’s blessed gift of life to their children rather than sacrifice them through abortion. A representative from Several Sources will speak at the Masses and ask for your financial assistance. We (You & I) can help save the life of a child. Jesus said of children, “Their angels do behold the Face of God in heaven daily.” Can you be a child’s earthly Guardian Angel? Please assist with our work. Your Sister in Christ Jesus, Kathy DiFiore, Founder

      On Oct. 4th, the Confirmation Program will begin the 2015-2016 school year. Teens meet once a month – usually on the first Sun. of the month. If you have teens entering 9th or 10th grade that have not yet registered please contact the Confirmation Office immediately at 973-283-1212. We have changed the program this year to improve the connection between the confirmation candidates and the OLM community. Beginning Oct. 4th, teens will join the OLM congregation at the Sun., 11am Mass. We encourage the families of our candidates to join us at Mass! This is an exciting change for the program, as the teens will be involved in a new way with the OLM community, and it will allow the 11am congregation to witness the strength and growth of the faith of our soon-to-be fully initiated Catholics! Also, at the opening Mass for the confirmation program, on Oct. 4th, OLM will be graced with talents of the Straight and Narrow Choir.

Thanks to the treatment and facilities offered by Straight & Narrow, these men and women, whose lives were once broken by addiction, are now on their way to living wholesome and productive lives as enthusiastic contributors to society. You’ll hear that optimism, determination and gratitude in the way they give Praise to the Lord. Come…You’ll never forget this experience.

      Religious Education for Grades 6-8 starts Mon., Sept. 28, 7:15-8:30 in the school. Grades 1-5 resumed last week and we had a wonderful start. The classrooms were filled with excitement, learning and prayer. Our catechists were well prepared and did a great job sharing their faith and teaching the material. OLM is truly blessed to have such a devoted group of people to pass on the faith to our youngsters. There is still room if you have not yet registered your children! Please do it right away…there are only so many desks and classrooms. Call or email Mary Ramsden, 973.838.0567 or reled@olmchurch.org.
