Vocation reflections

At first the disciples did not understand the scriptures. Then they went to the tomb, saw that it was empty, and they believed.  With belief came great joy and the desire to share the news with others.  Does the resurrection fill you with great joy?  Do you desire to share the good news with the world?  If so, consider doing this as a priest or religious brother or sister.  

 If you feel this call, “inquire within” and Please contact the Vocations Office the Vocations Office at (973) 497-4365 or by E-mail at Or visit our web site at

On this day of days we offer a joyful sacrifice of praise to the Father who raised his Son from the dead.  Let us be intent upon the life Christ offers us, Christ our Passover who has been sacrificed.

Every Tuesday the Blessed Sacrament is exposed in the church from 3 to 4 p.m.  It is an hour of prayer for the priests, DIVINE MERCY and religious men and women of the church.  Prayers are also said for an increase of vocations to the priesthood and religious life. 

We invite you to come and spend time with the Lord for these intentions and for your personal requests.  The Holy Hour closes with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament.  If you cannot join us in church, we ask you to join us from a quiet spot in your home and pray with us, asking the Lord to guide and protect our priests. 

Easter Flower Donations

Thank you for your Easter Flower donations.  While beautifying the church for the Easter Season through the generosity of your donation, you will also be remembering your loved ones.  On Easter Sunday in the church vestibule, there will be a “donor” list displayed.   

Parish Registration

We invite you to join us in the daily celebration of the Eucharist and become an active member of St. Anne’s Parish.  There are many Organizations and Groups that would love new faces and fresh ideas.  We are a very active parish.

Please take a few minutes to pick up a Registration Form from the church vestibule or stop by the rectory and fill out a Registration Form to become a parishioner. 

If you wish to receive envelopes, please check “yes” in the appropriate area on the Registration Form and they will be mailed to you.

Second Collection

Next weekend will be the Catholic Home Missions Appeal.  This appeal strengthens the Church at home by supporting Catholic communities in need.  It enables Catholic parishes in poor and remote communities to provide Mass, the sacraments, and religious education for their people.  This appeal gives us a chance to respond to the Father’s call to love our neighbor.  Please give generously.

Thank You, from Sister Celeste

I’d like to thank all who attended the Anointing Mass. I’m sure you were touched by the Liturgy and the Rite of the Anointing.  I encourage anyone who cannot get to church on Sundays to contact me at 201-222-0497 and arrangements can be made for Holy Communion to be brought to you at home.  There are many dedicated Eucharistic Ministers who would be honored to bring you the Sacrament.  I wish to thank the Holy Name men who set up and served the delicious goodies after the Mass.  They did a great service by transporting people who needed a ride to the Mass.  Lastly, I’d like to thank John and Maria for their hard work in setting up the auditorium for the Anointing Mass. God bless all!

Dear Parishioners, Alumni, and Friends,  

Happy Easter!

As you may already know, our Parish will be celebrating its 100th Anniversary in the year 2004.  Plans are currently under way for an Anniversary Mass followed by a reception in the auditorium on January 11, 2004 - save the date!  Other events will include: Parish Mission, a Traditional Latin Mass, Youth Days, Fashion Show, Parish May Crowning, Dinner/Dance, etc.

We need your help, however, as we prepare for these festivities.  Do you have any type of Memorabilia (Wedding pictures, Confirmation pictures, Journals, etc.) that you could share?  These will be displayed or, perhaps, be included in the “History of St. Anne’s” which is currently being written.  Please leave all items at the rectory marked Centennial Committee.  If you wish originals to be returned to you, please indicate that as well.

We have asked Father Vic to begin renovating the auditorium to prepare our church “home” for these Centennial events (new floor, bathroom facilities, walls, stage area).  To help the parish meet the necessary costs, a separate Centennial Fund has been established.  The Centennial Fundraiser began March 5th and will end June 12th with the ultimate goal of raising $100,000.  If each parish member/friend/alumnus/alumna could donate $100 or more, this goal is achievable and your name will be placed on a Centennial Wall Plaque commemorating the event.  LETTERS WITH FURTHER DETAILS CAN BE FOUND IN THE CHURCH VESTIBULE.

We are sure you will agree this donation will be well worth the joy our Parish Family will continue to share over the next 100 years.

Saint Anne, pray with us as we continue our journey.

  St. Anne’s Centennial Committee
