PARISH NEWS & UPDATES

  • THE JOY OF CHRIST - RECEIVED AND SHARED
    Thank you to everyone who has returned your Committment Card. It is really helpful for all cards to be submitted no later than April 9th so that they may be included in the final Summary Report.

    Please complete and submit your card even if you are unable to make a change in your level of giving. We need your support and prayers in every possible way.

    For those registered parishioners supporting the parish through their prayers and not able to assist in regular giving, please consider doing what you can. Some may wish to make one-time gifts. It is a tremendous help.

    If you have any questions, just contact the parish office or email me at
    This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

    Online giving is a method of contributing that is helpful to all. If you want to get more information, contact me.

    Thank you for your support.  It is a tremendous sign of your faith - and our sharing the Joy of Christ with each other.

  • FEEDING THE POOR: DRIVERS NEEDED FOR EVA'S KITCHEN OUTREACH PROGRAM
    Eva's Kitchen Needs Drivers to Help Deliver one Sunday a month
    Volunteer drives are needed to take our meals provided by our volunteer cooks to Paterson.  As a driver you will pick up the meals at the church by 10am. Helpers at Eva's Village will help unload the car and you should be home by noon.
    We are in need of drivers for the Third Sunday of each month for all of 2017. 
    Please call Anna Quinn at 973-635-5490 if you are able to help with the driving or cooking.

    Eva's Kitchen needs Cooks ~ Here's how you can help.....

    Eva's Kitchen, an outreach program to feed the homeless of Paterson, is in need of cooks to prepare a monthly chili dish from a recipe provided. Click here to see the recipe.  The meal is prepared at your home with the recipe and pans provided for your use.  It is a beautiful and easy way for you yourself, your teenagers and your whole family to help those in need.  Please consider volunteering your time.

    Here's how it works
    Every 2nd weekend of the month, the disposable cooking pans and recipes are placed in the Church Atrium for you to take home.  During that week, prepare the chili meal and freeze in the two pans provided, returning the frozen chili meals during that week to the church freezers or bring them on Sunday before 9:30am to be placed on the rolling carts in the hallway outside the Church offices.
