    As the year comes fast to an end, and many are planning on how to make a final year-end charitable contribution that has the most impact, please consider the many lives that are helped because of the support given to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal.  These are your neighbors, your friends, our senior priests and seminarians and urban school students.  All of us can play a part in the Bishop’s Annual Appeal – as either a contributor to the cause or as a recipient of its mission – and all are blessed as a result.  Please make the Bishop’s Annual Appeal a priority in your year-end philanthropy.  Gifts can be made by check, credit cards, through gifts of securities or on-line at www.2018appeal.org.  If you are 70 ½ or over and have an IRA, you can receive a tax benefit by instructing your IRA investment manager to donate your required minimum distribution to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal.  Please consult your tax or financial advisor for more information.          

    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.

If you would like to contribute to this fund please make checks payable to OLM and note “Christmas Fund”. Before Christmas, either mail them or give them to Msgr. Carroll. This fund is in addition to the Giving Tree & the Caring Ministry. A generous parishioner has come forward and volunteered to “match” up to $2,000 of what is collected by the Parish. Your prayerful consideration is greatly appreciated. God Bless!

  • RISE christmas wreath sale

    Pre-ordered mixed evergreen wreaths will be ready for pick-up after Mass the weekend of December 1st & 2nd.  If you didn't include payment with your pre-order, 22" wreaths are $25. and 28" wreaths are $35. Checks can be made payable to RISE - OLM.  The pre-sale of these wreaths was so popular that we have less than 2 dozen in both sizes left over for purchase.  They will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.
    Additionally, all wreaths come with a red velvet water repellent bow; however, the teens of Rise will have for purchase an assortment of large decorative bows to enhance the beauty of the wreaths for $5 each.  
    Thank you very much for supporting the teens of RISE and this year's summer mission trip to Upstate NY to help those in need. We are truly blessed to be a part of such a caring, thoughtful, and generous congregation.  

  • #igivecatholic 11/27


    #iGiveCatholic is a One-day online charitable giving event in dioceses across the nation to support individual Catholic parishes to raise funds to support their ministries. #GivingTuesday, is set for Tuesday, Nov. 27th 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 $3.6 million for participating dioceses. OLM is again participating in this national program, and ALL donations by OLM parishioners stay at OLM and benefit the OLM Youth Ministry Program to assist in covering the cost of the summer trip to the Steubenville Youth Conference for our attendees and the parish.  For information on #iGiveCatholic call Youth Minister, Kim Oliveira, on 973-349-8341 or https://paterson.igivecatholic.org/organizations/our-lady-of-the-magnificat
