Vocation reflections

Satan tempted Jesus as he fasted in the desert.  Jesus did not give in to temptation, but responded that, “the Lord your God shall you worship and him alone shall you serve.”  God calls men and women to serve him as priests and religious.  Is this the life God is calling you to live?


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

Moses recounts great events of salvation history which find their fulfillment in Jesus Christ.  We confess him to be Lord, for God raised him from the dead.  He is ever faithful, resisting temptation to forsake his Father’s mission, trusting in God’s 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.
