    • The fourth Sunday of Lent is known as Laetare Sunday which means “Rejoice” in anticipation of Easter. Parents that are expecting a child either biologically or through adoption will receive a special blessing and be given a rose at each Mass.
    • Hello. My name is Erin Carr, I am the new Youth Minister at Our Lady of the Magnificat Church. I am from Vernon Township, NJ. My parents are Michael and Maureen Carr and I have three brothers Brendan, Patrick and Ryan, as well as a very large extended family. I enjoy all sports, especially baseball and football. I am Roman Catholic and absolutely love my faith. I attend St. Francis De Sales Church in Vernon. At St. Francis I am involved in many things, from being an Antioch Adult leader, Adult leader for the youth music ministry, Youth group leader, and Religious Education aide for grades 1st to 8th. I am very excited to begin this new journey and I am eager to bring innovative ideas, activities, mission trips and more to the OLM youth program. I am committed to making a difference in people's lives and that is one of my many hopes and dreams as I step into the role of Youth Minister. I hope to convey three things into the youth of OLM…Faith, Hope and Love. Lastly, I work full time with the New Jersey Jackals Professional Baseball team at Montclair State University as a Sales Associate. I look forward to meeting all of you!

    • March 25-26 is 4-Get Me Not Weekend. Since the Lenten fast reminds us of the importance of food, we are encouraged to give generously to our brothers and sisters who often have no choice about fasting and depend on our donations of non perishable food to feed their families.
