Vocation reflections

Jesus says that “your light must shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your heavenly Father.”  Is it possible that God wants your light to shine as His priest, or religious brother or sister?


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

In baptism we are called to mirror and image the mercy and forgiveness the Lord has won for us.  As David would not harm Saul, his enemy, so are we challenged to love and pardon those who wrong us.

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.

Marriage Enrichment Weekend

Lent is coming - what are you doing?  Scripture tells us that Jesus went to the desert for 40 days to prepare himself for his public ministry by being alone with his Father.  He needed a solid relationship to face the challenges ahead.  Lent is the traditional time to work on our relationship with God through prayer and works of penance.  But what about your relationship with your spouse  Want to work on that to help face the challenges of

life in the modern world?  Try a weekend for just the two of you - not forty days, not in a desert but a comfortable hotel, a real opportunity to rediscover and strengthen your relationship.  This opportunity is brought to you by Marriage Encounter - making good relationships better.  For reservations or more information, please call Sal and Sylvia Vassallo at 973-857-8184.  Call now, space may be limited. life in the modern world?  Try a weekend for just the two of you - not forty days, not in a desert but a comfortable hotel, a real opportunity to rediscover and strengthen your relationship.  This opportunity is brought to you by Marriage Encounter - making good relationships better.  For reservations or more information, please call Sal and Sylvia Vassallo at 973-857-8184.  Call now, space may be limited.
