    • 4-Get Me Not weekend is next Sat. and Sun. While fasting is so much a part of our Lenten tradition, it can remind us that, for some families in Paterson, it is not a choice. They rely on the Fr. English Food Pantry to help them provide food for their families and the pantry depends on donations of non perishable food from caring people like us. Please leave food in the Church vestibule.

The morning began with a light breakfast and then listened to an inspiring and engaging speaker followed by a soup lunch. Over 15 ladies brought homemade soups to share with all. These ladies are ready to begin their Lenten Journeys.

  • phony emails and phone calls

    3/4/19 UPDATE:  As we have been saying, there are fake emails going around by someone asserting to be Msgr. Carroll.  Starting this morning March 4, they are now going out asserting to be our new Pastor Fr. Steve.  Please delete these emails.  No one from the Parish will be sending emails requesting favors.  Thank you!

    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.
