Vocation reflections

True discipleship, Jesus says is concerned not with status but with service to the poor, with justice and peace.  Does the message of Jesus attract the depths of your soul?  Does a life of service sound fulfilling to you?

If so, please contact the Vocations Office at 973-497-4365 or by e-mail at or visit our website at
