Vocation reflections

Jesus reminds his disciples that only the Father knows when the Kingdom will be realized in its fullness.  No one can truly predict it’s coming - no matter how hard we may try.  What we must do is work to make the kingdom more and more a reality in our world by serving those in need and speaking out for those with no voice.  Are you willing to work for the kingdom of God as a diocesan priest or religious priest, brother, or sister?

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

As we approach Thanksgiving Day, let us take a moment to consider all the blessings we receive from God and how we in turn thank God for His blessings.

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.
