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.

There's been great outcry and shock at Archbishop Cordileone banning Nancy Pelosi from Communion. Somehow, the Church and the world have progressed to a point where it’s unexpected for a bishop to condemn what is an obvious evil.Read More

“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
With 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.
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:

Entrance Antiphon, Rev 5:9-10: You have redeemed us, Lord, by your Blood from every tribe and tongue and people and nation, and have made us into a kingdom, priests for our God, alleluia. St. Augustine of Canterbury was born in Rome and died in Canterbury, England, in 604. When Pope Gregory I heard that the pagans of Britain were disposed to accept the Catholic Faith, he sent the prior of St. Andrew, Augustine, and forty of his Benedictine brethren to England. Despite the great difficulties involved in the task assigned to him, Augustine and his monks obeyed. The success of their preaching was immediate. King Ethelbert was baptized on Pentecost Sunday, 596, and the greater part of the nobles and people soon followed his example. St. Augustine died as the first Archbishop of Canterbury.Read More
