Giving of our time involves being with God in prayer and worship and volunteering our time in church and community activities that help others.
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.

Eucharistic Holy Hour
In celebration of the Archdiocese of Newark’s 150th Anniversary, there are Holy Hours scheduled throughout the Archdiocese. In our area, it will be at St. Nicholas on October 26th at 3:30 p.m. This will include exposition, silent adoration, evening prayer, homily, and benediction. Please try to attend.
The month of November is dedicated to All Faithfully Departed with All Souls Day being celebrated on November 2nd. This day, especially, is a traditional time for visiting graves of loved ones. For this reason, we ask that you take the time to please remember to fill in the names of your dearly departed family members and friends whom you would like to have remembered during the Masses of the All Souls Novena as well as during the Masses offered over the balance of the month. These envelopes may be placed in the depository next to the altar marked “All Souls” or placed in the collection basket so they may be placed on the altar for the duration of the month.
Sign up for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist today at 10 a.m. in school library. Please be on time. If you don’t come, your child will have to wait until next year.
