Vocation reflections

Jesus sent his disciples into the world to make disciples of all nations.  He told them to baptize and to teach all that he had commanded them.  Today, Jesus continues to send us into the world.  He still wants all nations to be his disciples.  He still needs people to teach his commands.  Are you being sent?  Are you willing to teach as Jesus taught?  Do you want to make disciples of all nations?  If so, consider doing this as a priest or religious sister or brother. 

 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
