ACT OF SPIRITUAL COMMUNION
My Jesus, I believe that you are in the Blessed Sacrament. I love you above all things,
and I long for you in my soul. Since I cannot now receive you sacramentally, come at least
spiritually into my heart. As though you have already come, I embrace you and unite myself
entirely to you; never permit me to be separated from you. Amen.
Until further notice, each weekend we must limit the number of attendees at Mass.
The number is determined by our civil authorities and the Newark Archdiocese.
Presently it is at 150 people per Mass.
Funerals, weddings and baptisms also have a maximum occupancy of 150 guests.
Please leave your name, number of people attending,
phone number, and which Mass you want to attend.
The obligation to attend is still suspended by the Archbishop.
We will continue to have a Mass online for those who choose to stay home.
We will be celebrating First Communions with our children
who were delayed because of the virus this spring.
To accommodate both you, our parishioners, and the First Communion families, we broke down the numbers into small groups. (5-8 children per mass)
There are no First Communions at the 8am mass.
First Communion Dates:
Sunday, September 27 (10am & 12pm)
MASS BOOK INTENTIONS
The Mass Book is now open from September to November. If you wish to arrange for a Mass intention, please call the rectory at 201-664-3131 to make an appointment.
For the remainder of September, masses will be filmed at our 5pm mass,
and streamed online on Facebook Sundays at 10am, and on the website early Sunday morning . We hopefully will have new equipment in October to stream the 5pm mass live.
WELCOME, FR. BOGUMIL!
On the weekend of September 19/20, we welcomed our new weekend assistant,

He comes to us after spending four years as Parochial Vicar at St. Catherine's Parish in Glen Rock. Fr. Bogumil is currently a member of the faculty of Seton Hall Prep in West Orange, NJ, where he teaches and also serves as school chaplain. We welcome Fr. Bogumil among us and look forward to his priestly ministry in our wonderful parish!
