    • Last Sunday’s celebration was a very beautiful and moving experience and I want to thank everyone who made it possible. So many of you went out of your way sending notes with heartfelt messages and words of greeting to congratulate me and wish me well and to thank me for being part of this parish. So this is my turn to say ‘thank you’ to all of you for welcoming me and giving me the opportunity at this phase of my life to celebrate with you. A special word of thanks to those who were able to be here to participate, and to those who made the entire day possible. And a very special thanks to the Ladies Guild who saw to it that we were all so well-fed and cared for all day. They did a flawless job of handling a sizable crowd and did it with gracefulness and such good taste. Many visitors who came for the occasion commented to me about the beauty of this church, the quality of the choir and it’s music and the spirituality, joy and prayerfulness of the congregation. We may take these things for granted but they are truly special. So thank you for being an extraordinary parish and inviting me to be part of it. Liturgically, last Sunday was called the 11th Sunday in Ordinary Time, but this was no ordinary celebration. It was truly extraordinary and I still feel the glow…I’ve been on Cloud 9 ever since and I think I’ll stay there.
    • A huge thank you to all who participated as golfers, sponsors and boosters! We had a wonderful day with loads of laughs and good cheer. This may be the most successful golf event ever sponsored here at OLM.....don't miss out next year!
    • Parish office summer hours are as follows: Monday – Thursday – 8:30 to 5pm Friday – 8:30 to 4pm Saturday – 9am to 4pm The bulletin will return to its 6-page format for the summer months as religious education, confirmation and parish ministries enjoy the summer season and communications are lighter. We will return to the 8-page bulletin when we gear up for fall activities. Thank you for understanding.
    • Dear Parishioners, Thank you for all you did for the celebration of my 50 years as a priest. I loved the Liturgy with the combined choirs, over 20 visiting priests and Bishop Rodimer and a full church of worshipers. The reception which followed for 680 of my relatives and friends from several parishes was extraordinary and memorable. From the parking of the cars to the last person to leave, a good time was had by all. Thank you to those who gave me gifts, sent well wishes and cards for another 50 years. I shall never forget this day nor those who worked to make it so special. In return, you will all have a special remembrance in my Masses and prayers as I carry you in my heart for the rest of my natural life. Sincerely, Msgr. Carroll
    • Congratulations to Fr. Henry Schreitmueller as he celebrates his 60th anniversary of Priesthood. We extend to him, his family and friends, our prayerful best wishes for a very, very happy anniversary. His sister, Betty Rutan, from Clearwater, FL as well as other family members and friends were here to celebrate with him.
    • June 24 is 4 Get Me Not Sunday. Children will be out of school and unable to receive their free lunches so the needs of families for food at the Catholic Charities Father English Food Pantry will increase. Carlos, head of the pantry, said vegetables, pasta and soups are low. Your donations will help these families stretch their meager food budgets. Thank you for your continued generosity!
    • Please keep in mind that during the months, when school is not in session, the children in Paterson still need to eat. You continued support of our food drives even during the summer months is really needed. They will thank you for doing so!
