The 2021 Annual Appeal will fund essential programs and ministries at the heart of our Catholic mission in our four counties – namely to proclaim the gospel, to pass on the faith to future generations, particularly through the celebration of the sacraments, and to care for the poor and those on the margins. Now more than ever, especially during this health crisis, our ministries and programs need your support.

Will you prayerfully consider making a gift to the 2021 Annual Appeal?

Mourning the Loss

Modernism, as an ideological stance, is essentially iconoclastic. It exists principally by standing in judgment against what has existed, even when what has existed is profoundly and naturally human.

The Church's response to COVID is driven by “concern for the safety of our members and the vulnerable”—a rationale that would have struck early Christians as strange.

Pope Francis proclaims “Year of St Joseph”

THE YEAR OF ST. JOSEPH

“EACH OF US CAN DISCOVER IN JOSEPH – THE MAN WHO GOES UNNOTICED, A DAILY, DISCREET AND HIDDEN PRESENCE – AN INTERCESSOR, A SUPPORT AND A GUIDE IN TIMES OF TROUBLE.” — Pope Francis, Patris Corde

 

Saint JosephWith the Apostolic Letter “Patris corde” (“With a Father’s Heart”), Pope Francis recalls the 150th anniversary of the declaration of Saint Joseph as Patron of the Universal Church. To mark the occasion, the Holy Father has proclaimed a “Year of Saint Joseph” from December 8, 2020, to December 8, 2021.

 

Saint Joseph is the guardian of the Holy Family, the Church, and laborers everywhere.

At the conclusion of his Letter, Pope Francis adds another prayer to St Joseph, which he encourages all of us to pray together:

Hail, Guardian of the Redeemer,
Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
To you God entrusted his only Son;
in you Mary placed her trust;
with you Christ became man.

Blessed Joseph, to us too,
show yourself a father
and guide us in the path of life.
Obtain for us grace, mercy, and courage,
and defend us from every evil.  Amen.

 

ST. JOSEPH INTERCESSIONS
THE ARCHDIOCESE OF NEWARK

That, during this Year of St. Joseph, we may care for one another the way Joseph cared for Jesus, the Son of God. We pray:

That all fathers may be inspired during this Year of Saint Joseph to imitate him as loving husbands and parents to their families. We pray:

That all refugees may be consoled during this Year of Saint Joseph by the saint who cared for his family when fleeing danger. We pray:

For all who labor to earn their daily bread; may they be strengthened during this Year of Saint Joseph, and may they receive a just wage. We pray:

For all those who quietly minister in the Lord’s vineyard. May they be inspired by Joseph, the silent saint, to work humbly for God. We pray:

For all families, that during this Year of Saint Joseph they may grow together in joy and love, as did Jesus, Mary and Joseph. We pray:

For unborn children and their parents;
For the elderly and the seriously ill;
For those on death row and all victims of violence; may all life be protected through the intercession of Saint Joseph. We pray:

Liturgical Year

Jan. 25 Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, Apostle, Feast

St. Paul, named Saul at his circumcision, a Jew of the tribe of Benjamin, was born at Tarsus, the capitol of Cilicia. He was a Roman citizen. He was brought up as a strict Jew, and later became a violent persecutor of the Christians. While on his way to Damascus to make new arrests of Christians, he was suddenly converted by a miraculous apparition of Our Lord. From a fierce persecutor he became the great Apostle of the Gentiles. He made three missionary journeys which brought him to the great centers of Asia Minor and southern Europe, and made many converts. Fourteen of his Epistles are found in the New Testament. He was beheaded in Rome around 66 A.D., and his relics are in the Basilica of St. Paul Outside-the-Walls near the Ostian Way.

Jan. 24 Memorial of St. Francis de Sales, bishop and doctor; Optional Memorial of Our Lady of Peace, Memorial

His ardent love of God and souls, his great kindliness, rare wisdom and sure teaching made St. Francis exceptionally influential in bringing about conversions and in guiding souls in the spiritual life. He won back to the faith more than 70,000 heretics, thus restoring to the Church a great part of the Chablais, which had been ravaged by Protestantism. He was St. Jane de Chantal's spiritual director, and with her founded the Order of the Visitation. He is the author of Treatise on the Love of God and Introduction to the Devout Life. St. Francis died at Lyons in 1622.
