Rectory Roof
Replacement Fund
and Fundraiser at Camillo's

The roof on our rectory building is in desperate need of replacement. Over the years, we’ve been able to patch it here and there, but it has been approximately 40 years (if not more) since the roof has been fully replaced. The current condition of the roof is beyond patching at this point and must be completely replaced. We’ve done our research, received three estimates and the total cost of a new roof is about $35,000. We are asking everyone to please prayerfully consider helping us with this expense. You will find special envelopes dedicated to the Roof Fund in the pews. Any amount will help us! Thank you for your consideration. As always, I will keep all of you in my prayers and ask that you please remember me in yours.

Sincerely,
Father Dennis

Father’s Day reminds us that fathers are a tremendous source of love, strength and protection for a child. Notwithstanding the faithful and heroic efforts of single moms bringing up children in today’s society, children still need to be around Christian men who are positive role models; men who are actively involved in their life of faith, possess spiritual passion, and are faithful fathers and husbands.

On Father’s Day, let us give thanks for all the men in our lives who are positive role models and ask Our Lord to bless all fathers, especially our own.

 

Welcome to Our Parish

Lord, send out Your Spirit, and renew the face of the earth.

Lighting Hearts on Fire
Diocesan Marian Consecration Preparation Year

Our Lady of Guadalupe

This past December 12, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Bishop James F. Checchio launched a year of spiritual preparation for the consecration of the Diocese of Metuchen to Our Lady of Guadalupe with Evening Prayer. The purpose of this consecration is to invoke Our Lady of Guadalupe’s (the Patroness of the Americas) aid for our diocese, so that we can be spiritually renewed and equipped to live out our call to evangelize more faithfully. For more information, please visit: lightingheartsonfire.org.

In keeping with Bishop Checchio’s consecration of our diocese to Our Lady of Guadalupe, you will notice sign-up sheets in the back of the church for families to pray together and prepare for the consecration by hosting a “travelling kit” (containing an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe) in their homes for one week (Sunday through Saturday). Let us pray for the spiritual renewal of our diocese!
