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:
Catholic Charities Bins Are Open Again
Sentinel Management has notified Catholic Charities that our Donation Bins are NOW open. We are grateful for your patience and look forward to your continued support. We need clothing, small appliances, shoes, linens, sheets, towels, stuffed animals, novels, toys, knickknacks, and children’s books.
We pray for an end of this virus in our society and throughout the world. Thank you with all our heart.
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.
