  • Car Ad for Parish



    The ability to reach out to people in need through our Bishop’s Annual Appeal is completely dependent on the number of faithful parishioners who participate by making a gift.  That is why every gift counts!  Your support helps bring hope to thousands of people who come to our Catholic Charities agencies each year. It also supports seminarian education, our diocesan priests’ residence, extraordinary healthcare needs of our priests and our urban elementary schools.  In addition, parishes receive half of all funds received over their parish goals – with a total of over $700,000 being returned to parishes last year alone! Please help your neighbors in need and our parish!   For your convenience, you can make an online gift or pledge at www.2018appeal.org

    Over the years, more and more parishioners have chosen to support the Bishop’s Annual Appeal by making an on-line gift.  Simply go to www.2018appeal.org and follow the instructions.  You can either make a one-time gift or a pledge with monthly payments made automatically for your for your convenience.
    Whether it is a pledge, a one-time gift, or an on-line donation, your support is greatly needed.  Every single gift counts!  Please participate in the 2018 Appeal today!
    One of the benefits of giving to our Bishop’s Annual Appeal is the knowledge that the funds support important needs in Morris, Passaic and Sussex Counties.  This local connection means that you may be helping your next-door neighbor, your co-worker, the store owner you see each day as you shop in your community – perhaps even a family member.  In this context, when you give to the Bishop’s Annual Appeal, you truly say:  Here I Am, Lord- Making a better life for my brothers and sisters in the area.  Please consider making a pledge today.


  • #igivecatholic 11/27

    #iGiveCatholic is a One-day online charitable giving event in dioceses across the nation to support individual Catholic parishes to raise funds to support their ministries. #GivingTuesday, is set for Tuesday, Nov. 27th following Thanksgiving and the widely recognized shopping events, Black Friday and Cyber Monday.  #GivingTuesday kicks off the Season of Giving and helps us to be more focused on giving, rather than receiving. Last year, the event raised more than $3.6 million for participating dioceses. OLM is again participating in this national program, and ALL donations by OLM parishioners stay at OLM and benefit the OLM Youth Ministry Program to assist in covering the cost of the summer trip to the Steubenville Youth Conference for our attendees and the parish.  For information on #iGiveCatholic call Youth Minister, Kim Oliveira, on 973-349-8341 or https://paterson.igivecatholic.org/organizations/our-lady-of-the-magnificat
