This is the last weekend for the Christmas Giving Tree, December 3 and 4, 2022.  The gifts will be sorted and delivered in time for Christmas.

Our Christmas tree is by the Altar with tags designated to either girls or boys and their age. Feel free to take a tag or two after Mass and when you can, put your special donation under the tree. Or, you can bring your gift up to the Parish office, Monday-Wednesday 9am-2pm. Please do not wrap the gifts!   NO NEED TO TAKE A TAG, feel free to give a donation of your choice. The age group is 0-17 years old; gift cards are also appreciated.

A very special thank you to Kathy Diffley for your partnership with this project. To our new friend and volunteer, Cathie Castagnola, thank you for your spirit and helping us. To Chris Grandinetti and all of our Ushers for helping at the end of each mass, to Pat & Bill Kevish for taking the gifts over to our Parish every Saturday after 4pm mass, Greg Bierster, my husband and helping hand and to Connie Barraco for this beautiful ad in the bulletin.

Mostly, thank you and God Bless each and every one of you for your generous donations. Wishing you a very happy and healthy Advent season.

BISHOP: Emergency Action Needed!

Immediate attention and action response needed!!

Please Stop the Slaughter of the Innocents in NJ!

The Catholic Bishops of New Jersey join to express our strongest opposition to S49/A6260. This harmful legislation would: codify into state law an individual’s right to an abortion, including late-term abortions; potentially violate the religious freedom of healthcare workers and hospitals; and require private businesses to expand group health coverage to include abortion services.

Abortion is a direct attack on life itself. As such, the Catholic Bishops of New Jersey urge Catholics and people of good will to reject this bill seeking to expand abortion services and to contact your state legislators to express your staunch opposition to its passage.

The New Jersey Catholic Conference expects the bill to be scheduled for a vote in both the Senate and General Assembly on this Monday January 10, 2022, only four days after being introduced to the Senate for the first time on January 6, 2022.

We urge you to contact your state elected officials immediately and ask them to vote NO on S49/A6260.

Scam Alert

The Diocese of Trenton has issued an alert regarding reports of email and text scams that will use the name of a pastor to solicit funds in the form of gift cards or cash donations.

The warning follows a recent report on CBS Philly about parishes in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia being targeted.  The email usually begins with a simple “Hi,” but no recipients’ name, and asks for financial help for a worthy cause.  The pastor’s name concludes the request.

Several pastors in the Diocese of Trenton have already heard from parishioners who received emails or text messages, seemingly from the pastor, asking for donations.

The Diocese takes this opportunity to advise parishioners that pastors do not raise money in this manner and to exercise the utmost caution when receiving this type of communication.

Some law enforcement in the area urge parishioners to question any email or text that doesn’t come from a person in their contacts.  If the person is not known, a parishioner should call the person asking for funds to verify the story.  If a pastor’s name is used, parishioners should contact the parish to verify the legitimacy of the appeal.

Anyone who feels that they have been the victim of this type of scam is urged to contact their local police department.
