    Father of goodness and love; hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and for all who are in need.  Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence.  Show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts.  We ask this through the lord Jesus who healed those who believed.

    • Our Junior Choir, which is made up of children who are enrolled in grades 4-8 in our religious education program, will commence rehearsing on Tuesday, September 3rd from 4:30-5:30pm in the church. They will sing with the Sr. Choir at the 11:00 parish picnic Mass under the tent on the rectory lawn on Sunday, September 8th. Beginning the following Sunday, September 15th, the Junior Choir will sing regularly at the 9:00 Mass, plus a number of other occasions throughout the year. Six of last year’s singers have graduated on to high school, so we have many empty chairs to fill. If your child is a singer, our parish needs their voice. Contact Mr. Pierce at 973-830-9806 for details.

    • 2nd Collection Aug. 24th & 25th As part of the Diocesan Mission Coop. Plan, a Salesian Sister of St. John Bosco will speak at OLM on Aug. 24th & 25th, on behalf of their foreign mission ministries. They will be asking for your help in support of their works throughout the world. The Salesian Sisters are a worldwide community counting 12,545 sisters spreading the Gospel on every continent. Approx. 3,000 sisters work in mission areas affected by great poverty, disease, political unrest, violence, war and other difficult conditions such as areas of natural disaster and refugee camps. They are in 17 African countries, the poorest because of war and violence for example South Sudan. They are also in the Middle East, particularly in zones where war is destroying people and environment. In Syria they have a hospital too small for present needs but they are dedicating themselves day and night to children, young people, families who have lost their homes, the dying and the wounded. The Sisters are grateful for the opportunity of sharing their mission work in our parish and of benefiting from your generosity.

  • phony emails and phone calls

    UPDATE 4/17/19:


    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 Fr. Steve or  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.    Please delete these emails.  No one from the Parish will be sending emails requesting favors.  Thank you!
