Vocation reflections

St. Paul calls us to an understanding of love, in his letter to the Corinthians.  In Jeremiah we read that we were known and loved by God before we were even formed in the womb.  Do you hear the voice of the Lord calling you to a life of loving service in the Church as a 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

“No prophet is accepted in the prophet’s hometown.”  Thus did Jeremiah and Jesus encounter opposition and lack of faith; thus did both place their hope in the Lord.  Paul speaks eloquently of the greatest of all the gifts: love.

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.

Souper Bowl of Caring

Share your caring spirit with thousands of others by dropping in $1 donation in a soup pot as you leave Mass on Sunday, February 1st.  Every dollar dropped in the soup pot helps feed people in need feel the power of God’s love.  Since becoming a national event in 1993, the “Souper” Bowl of Caring has generated over $20 million to help hungry and hurting people.  In the four years Saint Anne’s has been participating, over $2,000 has been donated to Saint Lucy’s Homeless Shelter in Jersey City.  Now that’s something to cheer about!

This unselfish project began four years ago from a group of our students at Saint Anne’s School - Kelly Ann Lillis and friends.  Thank you in advance for your participation. 

Blessing of the Throats

The Feast of St. Blasé is Tuesday, February 3rd. There will be a general blessing of the throats at all Masses this weekend.  Anyone wishing an individual blessing of the throats can attend the 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. Masses on the Feast Day itself.

Monthly Memorial Mass

 At the request of many parishioners, we will begin a monthly memorial mass on the first Saturday of each month.  Those who are enrolled, will have their names recorded in our Parish Prayer Request Book located near the Blessed Sacrament.

Each month, this book will be brought up in the Offertory Procession and all will be invited to pray for these special intentions.  These intentions can be for the living or for the deceased.  Our Parish Family of St. Anne's wishes to share in your sorrow and in your prayer.  We are calling this “Our Lady of Fatima Society”.  Each person enrolled on a yearly basis, will share in the spiritual benefits and good works of the St. Joseph’s Morning Prayer Group, and in a monthly Mass and Rosary shared on the First Saturday of each month in honor of the Blessed Mother.

These Memorial Mass cards will be available at the rectory. You may see an example already set up in the Parish Prayer Request Book.


Welcome to our Family

We recently received two new members to our St. Anne’s Parish Family through the Sacrament of Baptism.  As they begin their new life of grace, we ask that you remember them in your prayers. 

They are:

Daniella Angelina Cook

Lorianne Marie Andrades
