Fifth Sunday of Lent

“The Father will honor whoever serves me.” Jn. 12:26
Today's Gospel (Jn. 12: 20-33) is a preparation for the beginning of the passion narrative. Jesus has just raised Lazarus from the dead (Jn.11:38), which inspired many people to believe in Jesus. This event also marks the turning point in Jesus' conflict with the Jewish authorities. The Sanhedrin now make plans to kill Jesus.
Following his triumphant entry into Jerusalem, Jesus predicted his suffering, death, and Resurrection and prepared his disciples to believe in the salvation that his death would accomplish. Responding to the Greeks, Jesus uses the metaphor of the grain of wheat, to present the idea that his dying would be beneficial, but for his disciples they too must be willing to be like Jesus to bear “much fruit.” Read More:

                          WINTER WEATHER AND MORNING MASS

With snow and ice once again on our seasonal agenda, we remind you to check our parish phone line (973) 895-4224 or the website for status reports on Daily Mass and activities.  Should conditions so warrant, we will shortly after 7:00 AM record an update as to whether or not the 9:00AM Mass will be celebrated as scheduled, postponed until noon time, or altogether canceled.  Though the storms may have passed, our final judgment is based on the condition of our driveways and steps.  Your safety is our major concern.

 Returning Catholics
If you are a Catholic who has been away from regular Mass attendance, please know you are most welcome to join us at any of our worship services and parish functions.  Should you like more information about our parish or should you simply want to talk about coming back home, contact our administrator Fr. John Tarantino, or Deacon Ray, Director of Ministries at:
