Welcome to St. Catherine of Bologna Church



On May 22nd we received a letter from the Bishop with his decision of re-opening churches. On May 26th, we received another letter stating that the Bishop reversed his decision and the churches remain closed. Please see the Bishop's letters below for more information.


Thank you for your prayers and financial support. While the Church is closed, keep these reminders in mind:

  1. Please remember you can still order the mass intentions; they are going to be celebrated by Fr. Pawel in his private chapel in the rectory.
  2. Thank you for your continued financial contribution. You can support our parish by giving online or by simply mailing or dropping off your envelopes to the black mailbox by the parish office.
  3. Please read Fr. Pawel’s article about the Spiritual Communion and Act of Contrition. It may help you grow spiritually.  
  4. Revisit Fr. Pawel's Letters of Encouragement during these uncertain times and keep your spirit up.

‘Abide in Me’

At first, Rose Robayo of Our Lady of the Lake (OLL) Parish in Sparta thought that a daily commitment to 30 minutes of reading, praying and journaling on Sacred Scripture might take up too much time. Nevertheless, Robayo devoted herself to a half-hour each day of praying and writing her reflections in a journal — her “homework” each week as a member of “Abide in Me,” a spiritual direction program that offers prayer and support for wives of candidates studying to be permanent deacons of the Diocese, who will be ordained in 2023.

Reaching out to seniors

At the Paterson Adult Day Center located in Governor Towers in Paterson, the sounds of a piano fill a room with songs of yesteryear. A wave of memories and nostalgia flashes to the minds of the 120 seniors who enjoy daily activities and socialization at the center with their peers living in their golden years. [Read More]
