Vocation reflections

As Jesus walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon and Andrew, and said to them, “Come after me, and I will make you fishers of men.” They immediately left and followed him.  Today Jesus continues to call men and women to come after him.  Is Jesus calling you to do this as a priest or religious brother of sister?  


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

Isaiah, a man of unclean lips, beholds the Lord’s glory in the temple and is sent on a mission.  Simon, a sinner, responds to the mission of Jesus by becoming a disciple.  Paul, the persecutor, speaks of his call to preach nothing but Christ crucified and risen.

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.

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.



We are requesting that your old Palm be dropped off at the rectory by February 22nd in order for it to be burned for Ash Wednesday, February 25th.  This is the appropriate way to dispose of your old Palm and make it useful for the church.


Our Lady of Mount Carmel Concert Series Musica Carmelite will be hosting its sixth performance on Sunday, February 15th at 3:30 p.m.  Artistic Director, Rasaan Bourke, will be the concert’s featured piano soloist.  For more information call 201-435-7080.
