MONTHLY AVERAGE COMPARISONS:
HOUR FOR PRIESTS
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.
weekend will be the Catholic Home Missions
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

Thank You, from Sister Celeste
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!
