Vocation reflections

After her encounter with Jesus at the well, the Samaritan woman is filled with joy and a new found freedom from all that oppressed her.  It is with this joy and exhilaration that she goes to all her friends and neighbors and shares the Good News of Jesus Christ.  You too may be called to share the Good News as a 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

From the burning bush, Moses is called by God to lead his people out of slavery into freedom. The parable of the fig tree speaks, on the one hand, of God’s patience, but, on the other, of the urgency of the call to conversion. Like the Hebrews of old, we too have failed to heed God’s call, thinking ourselves to be self-righteous.

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.

Easter Decorations

For your convenience, a “Flower” depository has been placed by the altar.  Remember your loved ones this Easter Season while beautifying the church.

We are summoned to be a people who listen with our hearts, lend a helping hand, and build a better world. Let us respond by joining the Holy Father in this act of justice and kindness.
