    • Please visit the OLM Adult Choir page and click on "2017 Easter Celebrations" to videos videos recorded by Tom McCloskey during the Easter celebrations.
    • Next week, April 23, is 4Get-Me-Not Sunday.  Our generous donations of non-perishable food have been very much appreciated. They help to keep food on the shelves for our poor at the Fr. English Food Pantry.  Pastas, rice, canned and breakfast foods are always needed. Thank you!
    • The entire staff of OLM extends to the parish their best wishes for a holy and Happy Easter. As a part of our Easter celebration we are giving out free copies of a small book entitled “Everybody Needs to Forgive Somebody” by Allen R. Hunt. Msgr. Carroll read it on the plane from Florida. It is only 108 pages long and consists of 12 stories. PLEASE TAKE ONE. Happy Easter!
    • Walter J. Huber was an active parishioner of OLM for over 30 years. He was a Eucharistic Minister, a member of the K of C, a man of faith who literally clothed the naked and fed the hungry of Paterson. Twice a month his employer allowed him to fill up his school bus with clothing from the parish House of Hope and drive it to St. Martin de Porres Village with Conor Spillane as his co-pilot. He loved his wife Nancy of 29 years and looked after her in such a loving way. He loved the children and grandchildren who called him their Opa. Unless someone else has a better idea, Msgr. Carroll would like to rename the House of Hope in his memory and call it the Walter J. Huber House of Hope! May he rest in peace.
    • We do not have a gated parish cemetery and therefore security is difficult to enforce. We have received reports that flowers and decorations do go missing from time to time. A parishioner recently positioned a camera near his wife’s crypt and he has a good picture of another parishioner stealing his plants. If this doesn’t stop he will turn over the pictures to the police.
    • GIFTS NEEDED We are looking for items to be auctioned at the golf outing. Do you have baseballs, basketballs, footballs, hockey sticks, helmets, art work, jewelry, etc. collecting dust? Msgr. Carroll would gladly take off your hands. Call at the rectory 973-838-6838 ext. 100 or cell 973-713-3746. We will authenticate it. BOOSTER BOARD AND RAFFLE Purchase a booster for $20 and be a part of this great event! All Boosters will be entered into a raffle and have a chance to win a brand new Apple iPad. Winner will be selected at the outing and need not be present. Sign up after Mass or stop by the Rectory before June 5th.
    • Our previous youth minister Branden Kasper became a Dad on April 10th. He and his wife Ally are proud parents of a little girl Camryn Lora. God Bless your family!
    • Jesus said; “Follow Me, I am the Way, the Truth and the Life”. The fullness of life was won when the tomb was empty and the Lord rose from the dead out of love for you and me. Have you decided to die to your former self in order to be risen with Christ? Have you gone to Reconciliation, been repentant and has your tongue confessed that Jesus Christ is Lord? St. Paul tells us, “Since you were raised with Christ, seek what is from above and since you have died with Christ, you too, will appear with Christ in glory.” This is Christ’s Easter promise to all who believe. It is Christ’s Resurrection that opens the “Way of Salvation” for you. ALLELUIA! When Jesus meets His disciples He tells them, “Do Not Be Afraid.” Why not? During the Consecration and the breaking of the bread at every Mass, and out of love for you, JESUS IS ALIVE AND TRULY PRESENT IN THE HOLY EUCHARIST, reminding you of His words, “I AM WITH YOU ALWAYS.” Like the Apostles, do you recognize Him? Is your heart rejoicing and burning with anticipation at receiving His body and blood? It should be for Christ longs to be alive in you. Will you let Him? He has assigned you the job of witnessing for Him as a modern day Disciple. Will you accept? Easter is more than a day of celebration; it is a day of re-commitment to the Lord and His mission, which now belongs to all believers. Out of love for you, Christ’s mercy is deeper and greater than you can ever imagine. Out of love for you, the Lord casts out all fear, for this is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it! Next Sunday is Mercy Sunday so please join us and experience His Divine Love and Forgiveness.
    • Rice Bowls If you haven’t returned your Rice Bowl box please place them on a table in the narthex of the Church or Chapel. Thank you!
    • To our candidates John Yago, Jennifer Tweer, Jamie Conroy and Bob Richardson, who have completed the Rite of Election, Rite of Continuing Conversion, the Scrutinies, Creed Ceremony, Stations of the Cross and Reconciliation. Please continue to pray for them.
    • Please join me in welcoming Yohan Serrano who is joining our OLM faith community on Tuesday, April 11th. He will be ordained a Deacon on May 13th at St. Peter’s in Parsippany. More details to follow.
