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 edition is available on Diocese of Paterson page at https://rcdop.org/development-resources/#videos) 





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.

The tipping point came when a regional tax collector drowned a pregnant woman. Filled with righteous anger, Shirō put on his samurai uniform and clutched his sword, ready to lead what is now known as the Shimabara Rebellion — a failed deadly uprising by these Christians from December 1637 to April 1638.

Seminarians grateful for the support of the faithful through Diocesan Ministries Appeal

For many young adults, their college years are a time of searching and figuring out what the future holds. For Lucas Folan, a diocesan seminarian, it was a time when he seriously began to discern a priesthood vocation, which began near the end of his freshman year at Hofstra University in Long Island, N.Y., where he was studying music education.
