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.

‘Catholic Spiritual Warfare’ talk focuses on need to fight the devil

Though many people, including some Catholics, have been downplaying the perils of all things evil, such as the devil, hell, and practices of the occult, the Church reminds the faithful that the spiritual battle between Christ and the Evil One for our souls is still very real and has never stopped raging. For this fight, the faithful need to arm themselves with several types of spiritual weapons, such as prayer, but more importantly to be armed with an eternal optimism: that Jesus already has claimed their victory over sin with his Resurrection.

Bishop blesses renovations to Partnership for Social Services, new office for veterans’ services

Bishop Kevin J. Sweeney rededicated and blessed the headquarters of the Partnership for Social Services here, an agency of Catholic Family and Community Services (CFCS), part of diocesan Catholic Charities, after it received $160,000 in renovations to help it better serve the thousands of poor people in Sussex County it helps each year — and help make them feel more welcomed. The improvements also enabled the facility, which has housed the Partnership during its entire 45 years of existence, to provide space for the Sussex County office of the N.J. Department of Military and Veterans’ Affairs (NJDMAVA), which was displaced from its former location. [Read More]
