Social Concerns Ministry
Holiday Food Drive
The Social Concerns Ministry, along with our CCD classes will be assisting the Office of Concern Food Pantry in conducting their THANKSGIVING FOOD DRIVE from November 13th to the 25th. They are asking us once again to assist them in serving the poor people they serve, so they may enjoy this great American holiday.
Their FOOD PANTRY serves about 900 families living below the Federal Poverty Level. These families live in severe circumstances receiving limited food stamps, forcing the family to choose between paying rent, medical needs and clothing. This leaves little money left over for food. You may wish to contribute specific holiday foods such as cranberry sauce, or other fixings, which is wonderful, but there are also other areas of year-round foods that are especially valuable: canned fruits and vegetables, pasta, cereals. Please bring any frozen turkeys to the Rectory Office during regular business hours.
All donations can be returned to the entrance of the Church anytime in November by NOVEMBER 25TH!
We sincerely thank you for your continued support of the Social Concerns Ministry.

2019 Annual Appeal
Watch the Video - Read and Click Below
On February 3rd we kicked off the Sharing God's Blessings Annual Archdiocesan Appeal that funds the education of our seminarians, care for our retired priests and funds the work of Catholic education, Youth Ministry and Catholic Charities. The theme this year is Servings God's People.
Last year we pledged $27,140.82 towards last year's goal of $36,099. This year our goal has increased due to the increase in overall parish revenue, for that's what the goal is based on, and since we did not make goal last year, I would like to invite you to consider a more concerted effort to try to make goal this year.
I thank you for you generosity to you parish, but I would also ask us to remember that we have to also support the wider church which is the Archdiocese of Newark, and its ministries that serve us all, as the video presentation will show.
I would ask each family or individual to join me in making a contribution pledge this weekend to the Appeal and help our parish reach its goal of $38,980.
