Let Your Light Shine



Brothers and Sisters in Christ –the theme of this year’s Diocesan Ministries Appeal is “Let Your Light Shine.” Your support brings hope to all those in great need who come to the Diocese of Paterson for understanding, compassion and direct assistance. Your response to the Diocesan Ministries Appeal will help brighten the lives of so many of your neighbors in need here in the Paterson Diocese!

May God bless you always.

A series of 2-minute videos highlighting individual case elements of the 2021 DMA has been created to encourage participation of the faithful. We will be adding these on a weekly basis. (Spanish and All editions are available on Diocese of Paterson page) 









Thank you for your prayers and financial support. 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.
