    Here I Am, Lord!
    If you have not yet responded to the 2018 Bishop’s Annual Appeal, there is still time to do so as the 2018 Appeal funds are used to support ministries and programs through the end of the diocesan fiscal year on June 30, 2019.   Your gift is a great blessing and valued so we can serve Christ by serving his people.  For your convenience, you can make an online gift at www.2018appeal.org.                 




    Dear Parishioners,
    As you are aware, Bishop Serratelli has extended my pastorate almost three years since I turned 75 on July 28, 2015.  He called me on December 6th and told me he was making some clerical changes while he was still Bishop, and that I would be retiring on March 1, 2019.
    My plan is to retire to my condo in Keyport, NJ.  As soon as I am settled, I will inquire to surrounding parishes to see if they need help with Masses.  With the approval of the new Pastor, I will return to OLM for some weddings and other Sacraments I had planned to celebrate.
    I will always be grateful to God and to you for making these past almost 28 years the best years of my life. 
    Yours in Christ,
    Fr. Carroll


    In lieu of our traditional Volunteer Appreciation dinner, this year we will give our appreciation and thanks to Msgr. Carroll for his 28 years of service to OLM.  Click below for more details.


    We have been experiencing break-ins in the school gym by young men (college and/or high school age) to play basketball.  For insurance reasons, we cannot allow this to continue.  Contrary to what the young men have asserted, no one has Msgr. Carroll’s permission to play ball in the gym.   The police will be contacted in the future if the break-ins continue!

  • phony emails and phone calls

    Someone with an affiliation with the parish (parishioner, staff, etc.) had their address book hacked.  The hackers are using the email addresses and, in some instances phone numbers, to impersonate Msgr. Carroll and social engineer others in that address book.  Don’t respond to any of these solicitations.  To protect yourself, please change your email password as you could have been the  party compromised.

    • Donations slow down after the holidays, hunger does not. The shelves are noticeably empty of pancake syrup, juices, cold cereal and oatmeal, and are in dire need of canned meat and fish. Please help by leaving donations of non perishable food in the vestibule of the Church next weekend.
