Vocation reflections

The disciples gathered to choose a new apostle.  They proposed two, then they prayed and Matthias was chosen by the brothers to become an apostle.  He was sent with the others into the world to share the good news.  Today, men and women are still being chosen to follow Jesus and to continue the work of the apostles.  Are you willing to say yes?  Are you willing to go out to the world to share the good news?  Will you do so as a priest or religious?     

 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

How much you have has nothing to do with generosity to God.  If you don’t give of your time, talent and treasure with what you have, you most likely won’t do it if you have more.

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. 


Gift Wheel

As in the past years, the Padre Pio and St. Joseph Prayer Groups will be sponsoring a booth at St. Anne’s Festival.  Donations of  new/unused gifts  will be gladly accepted.  If you feel you do not have the time to shop, monetary donations will also be gladly accepted.  Items or donations can be dropped off at the rectory marked “St. Joseph Prayer Group”.
