SEEKING A CLOSER RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD AND THE CHURCH?
Jesus says, “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. Within the Catholic Church, we have a process for those who seek a closer relationship with God: the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults, or RCIA. Through this, they find answers to their questions about God and what it means to be a follower of Christ. Typically, the process leads to them receiving the sacraments of initiation; namely Baptism, Confirmation, and Eucharist. If you or someone you know is seeking a closer relationship with God by completing their sacraments, please contact the Parish office. Those who join now will receive their sacraments in spring 2018.
PLANNING YOUR WEDDING
If you are planning to have your wedding in 2018, it’s time to call the rectory and set up the date for the Church and get all your paperwork in order. Just call the rectory @ 201-659-1772, Monday through Friday from 9:30 AM to 4:30 PM.
BRING A FRIEND TO CHURCH
One of the greatest gifts a person can receive is the gift of Faith, the gift of God. During the month, try to bring along a friend with you to Mass. You may be helping someone receive the greatest gift, the gift of God, the gift of life everlasting.
