Vocation reflections

It is a wonderful thing to watch children at play - their sense of freedom and openness is a sight to behold.  Jesus reminds his disciples that they too must be like children in their acceptance of the kingdom of God and the presence of that kingdom in the very life and ministry of Jesus.  Are you open to that same call of Jesus?  Is the Lord calling you to follow him as a priest or religious?

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