  • Car Ad for Parish



    On Oct. 27 & 28th we will conduct a follow-up to the in-pew commitment weekend last weekend.  Pledge cards will be available in the pews for your convenience.  If you haven’t had a chance to do so, we will encourage you to take a pledge card and fill it out during Mass.  It may be placed either in with the collection or given to an usher after Mass.

    While there are many ways to give to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, there is a particularly beneficial opportunity if you are 70 ½ or over and have an IRA.  If you are in this category, the IRS requires you to take a required minimum distribution from your IRA each year.  As a result, this distribution is added to your taxable income and increases the amount of taxes owed to the government.  However, instead of taking your required minimum distribution, you can instruct your IRA investment manager to donate this distribution to a charity such as the Bishop’s Annual Appeal and this automatically omits this amount from your adjusted gross income.  This tax benefit can be realized by all qualifying individuals, whether you take the standard deduction or itemize your deductions.  This can be a significant benefit to you and a great way to support the work of the Bishop’s Annual Appeal.  If you are considering making a charitable donation using your IRA required minimum distribution, please be sure to first discuss this with your financial or tax advisor to make sure it is right for you.

    Over the years, more and more parishioners have chosen to support the Bishop’s Annual Appeal by making an on-line gift.  Simply go to www.2018appeal.org and follow the instructions.  You can either make a one-time gift or a pledge with monthly payments made automatically for your for your convenience.
    Whether it is a pledge, a one-time gift, or an on-line donation, your support is greatly needed.  Every single gift counts!  Please participate in the 2018 Appeal today!
    One of the benefits of giving to our Bishop’s Annual Appeal is the knowledge that the funds support important needs in Morris, Passaic and Sussex Counties.  This local connection means that you may be helping your next-door neighbor, your co-worker, the store owner you see each day as you shop in your community – perhaps even a family member.  In this context, when you give to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, you truly say:  Here I Am, Lord- Making a better life for my brothers and sisters in the area.  Please consider making a pledge today.

    The evening begins with a rosary at 6:45 pm, followed by Adoration at 7:00 pm, and a small concert at 8:15 pm. Leading us in song and worship is Dana Catherine and Jon Niven! 

    During the event, attendees will have opportunities for confession, to pray for others, to hear about the importance of (and even respond to) vocations, to say the rosary, to engage with local and national ministries, and to interact in a variety of other ways.

    The evening is FREE to attend but does require a ticket. You can get yours now at iTickets.com!
