NOTICE
As a reminder, Cardinal Tobin has granted dispensation from in-person Mass attendance until the COVID-19 health crisis is abated. All parishioners are encouraged to avail themselves of technology to participate in the live-streaming of Mass and to remain united in prayer for our communities and beyond.

For a list of local parish livestreams, visit www.rcan.org/parishsupport and click on the “Parish Livestreams” tab. This website also allows the faithful an opportunity to exercise their stewardship of their parish and to support parishes in need.

turntomaryCHURCH BELLS
In a show of solidarity among the faithful and as a common call to prayer during this pandemic, especially for people directly affected by illness, Cardinal Tobin urges all pastors and parishes in the Archdiocese to ring church bells simultaneously at noon daily until further notice. At that time, all are urged to pray the words of the ancient prayer, "Sub Tuum Praesidium:"

Under thy protection we seek refuge, O Holy Mother of God; In our needs, despise not our petitions, but deliver us always from all dangers, O Glorious and Blessed Virgin.

STAY UPDATED

As we continue this holiest week of our liturgical year, please be assured of our prayers for you and your family.

SHINING THE LIGHT OF CHRIST
Through your support of the Annual Appeal the Archdiocese of Newark is able to form the next generation of leaders, to welcome those on the margins, and finally to provide the resources so that our parishes can flourish. Your gift to the Annual Appeal is and always will be used for the reasons intended, to serve the mission of the church and nothing more.

There are many ways to make a gift to the Annual Appeal including our website https://www.rcan.org/ways-to-give. There you can also see the areas your gift will support and learn more about our programs and ministries. Be sure to select our parish from the drop-down box under "Parish Information."

PLEASE NOTE:

Thank you.

ATTENDING MASS AND OTHER PRAYERS AND DEVOTIONS VIRTUALLY? MAKE A SPIRITUAL COMMUNION:

PRAYER FOR SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
My Jesus, I believe that You are truly present in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
I love You above all things and I desire to possess You within my soul.
Since I am unable at this moment to receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart.
I embrace You as being already there, and unite myself wholly to You.
Never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
