    • A good way to begin Thanksgiving is you and your family to attend the 9:00 am Mass in the Church. Loaves of blessed bread will be distributed for you to share with your families. We have so much to be thankful for especially our health and our family and friends. We wish you and yours a very Happy Thanksgiving. God Bless! Parish Office Holiday Hours The office will be closed on Thurs. Nov. 23rd and Fri., Nov. 24th. If you need to reach a Priest please call the house phone at 973-838-6838 then dial “0” (or call Msgr Carroll’s cell 973-713-3746).
    • This feast is celebrated on the weekend of Nov. 25/26th. It is a glorious feast and it marks the end of the Church’s Liturgical Year. Advent begins the next Sunday
    • The tree is up in the narthex this weekend for the children at the Catholic Charities Fr. English Center and Martin DePorres Center. NEW THIS YEAR – demographics have changed at the Fr. English Center with more seniors needing care, so we have included 15 tags for seniors. UNWRAPPED gifts are due back DEC. 10th. As always, your generosity is much appreciated.
    • The school steps are being replaced by Carl Ferrara. It is a big job but a necessary one since they are cracking and the railings needed to be replaced. We are grateful to Carl for his hard work.
    • Once in a while we are asked to help a parishioner who is either homebound or needs to be taken shopping or to the bank, etc. If you would be interested in helping in this way, please call the rectory. It would only be occasionally and at your convenience. Thank you.
    • Our custodian has finished painting the walls in the narthex of the Church. Please refrain from leaning against the newly painted walls and putting one foot against the wall. It leaves a footprint which is difficult to get out. You wouldn’t do it in your own home so please don’t do it in God’s home. Thank you!
    • The pantry is now in dire need of non-perishable food so we are requesting donations continuously this month. Please leave donations in the Church vestibule. This is an especially difficult time for all involved with the holidays approaching.
    • There will be a 2nd collection for Catholic Home Missions Appeal which provides much needed assistance to dioceses in the U.S. including evangelization, Religious Ed, ministry training for priests and the religious. Your generosity is much appreciated.
    • Today, we welcome Dylan Cathcart and his classmates from Kinnelon HS who will speak about the Turkeys 4U program. They are asking for our financial help. Thanks to the generosity of our parishioners last year, the students were able to purchase hundreds of turkeys for the Fr. English Center in Paterson.
    • On Nov. 2nd a fire at the Fr. English Center in Paterson put the entire operation on hold. Thanks to help from various sources, there are temporary freezers, a food pantry and storage for clothing at the same location. On a table in the narthex, there are flyers explaining all of this and asking for financial assistance. All donations may be sent to: Catholic Family and Community Services, Attn: Food Pantry Appeal, 24 DeGrasse St., Paterson, NJ 07505.
    • The Christmas Concert with the Christmas Festival Orchestra of NJ, under direction of Maestra Karen Pinoci, will be on Sun., Dec. 17, 7:30pm. Along with the orchestra, the concert will feature both the Jr. and Sr. OLM Choirs, and special guest, Willy Falk, Tony nominee for the original Broadway production of Miss Saigon. Tix are on sale in the narthex. To become a sponsor please contact John Ramsden at jramsden@hartz.com.
    • Once in a while we are asked to help a parishioner who is either homebound or needs to be taken shopping or to the bank, etc. Usually it is a woman. If you would be interested in helping in this way, please let us know at the rectory. Of course, it would only be occasionally and at your convenience. Thank you.
    • THANK YOU to all who donated warm clothing for residents at the Hope through Care Women’s Shelter. For info about donations, contact Lynn Drazin at 973-294-8097.
    • In Giving, We Receive This time of year, as our nation plans to celebrate Thanksgiving, let us reflect on how we use all of the gifts given to us by a loving God. Consider showing your thanks for all your blessings by making a gift to the 2017 Bishop’s Annual Appeal. As we are reminded in this year’s Appeal theme - In Giving, We Receive - your participation not only impacts the lives of tens of thousands of people in need, but it benefits you as well. Please make a pledge today! For your convenience, you can make an online gift or pledge at www.2017appeal.org.
    • #iGiveCatholic is a 1-day online charitable event in dioceses across the nation to support individual Catholic parishes to raise funds to support their ministries. #GivingTuesday, is set for Tuesday, Nov. 28TH following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday. #GivingTuesday kicks off the Season of Giving and helps us to be more focused on giving, rather than receiving. Last year, the event raised more than $1.8 million for participating dioceses. OLM is joining this national program, and ALL donations by OLM parishioners stay at OLM and benefit the OLM Youth Ministry Program to: Refurbish the youth room, Establish scholarships for teens to attend youth events, and the Lifeteen program, which is a ministry geared specifically to HS teens. For more Information on #iGiveCatholic call OLM Youth Minister, Kim Oliveira, on 973-349-8341. https://igivecatholic.org/designee/our-lady-of-the-magnificat
