  • Our Lady's Special Year - 2019

    As you may have seen from the banner in the church main vestibule, we are about to start a year of special devotion to Our Lady, specifically "Our Lady of Guadalupe," Patroness of the Americas. Bishop Checchio will consecrate the Diocese on December 12, 2019 to Our Lady of Guadalupe and this year is one of spiritual renewal and preparation for that event.

    There will be a number of activities the LIFT ministry will be conducting during the year (stay tuned here for more info as these happen). The first of these is the launch of passing the Guadalupe "Prayer Kit" on January 25th and 26th. A number of families have signed up to receive the Prayer Kit in their home for a week to pray with other families in the Diocese during the week they have the kit; then to pass it on to another family.

    If you have not already signed up to join your fellow parishioners to receive the Prayer Kit, you can do so on lists that are in each vestibule.

    We all know the kinds of good things that have to happen in the Church these days and prayer through Mary is a most powerful way to ask Our Lord to mend the broken and bring peace to our lives. Make it a priority to learn more about Our Lady of Guadalupe. She brought astonishing miracles to the Americas when she appeared and we pray for her help today. 

  • Saddle Up for Fun!

    OK, so after the holidays, it's likely that Visa (and not Santa) will be coming to town and you might be a little short on funds for a Wyoming or Colorado getaway. Problem solved! Come to our FIRST ANNUAL Country Western Hoedown! Saturday, January 26 from 6 to 10pm in Desmond Hall. Amazing food, fun and dancing. Tickets are on sale after Masses.

  • Celebrate Holy Name Month

    The month of January is traditionally dedicated to the Holy Name of Jesus. After the Blessed Virgin Mary conceived by the Holy Spirit, the angel Gabriel appeared to St. Joseph and told him that the Child’s name should be called Jesus, meaning “God Saves.”

    According to Jewish law, on the 8th day after his birth a male child was to be circumcised, receive his name, and become a full member of God’s covenant people. According to the old Roman liturgical calendar, the Feast of the Circumcision of Jesus was celebrated on January 1st, eight days after Christmas, the same day that He was given His sacred name.

    Currently we celebrate the Solemnity of the Mother of God on January 1st and honor the Holy Name of Jesus on January 3rd. For Catholics, Jesus’ sacred name is the object of a special devotion symbolized by the monogram “IHS,” (sometimes called a Christogram), which is the first three letters of the Greek spelling of His name.

    January 20th is the 8:00AM Holy Name Mass. Consider attending and celebrating God's love for us. Parish coffee follows and it is a great time to enjoy the company of your fellow Holy Name members and parishioners. Hope to see you then.

    Consider becoming a part of our Holy Name Society. It is a wonderful way to express your love for Christ and help bring His kindness and love to our parish family. To join, call the parish office at 732-566-9334.

  • A Fine Christmas Youth Choir!

    Once again our children sang at Christmas Masses and it was a real treat. Choir members got VIP treatment to sample the Holy Name's famous "Cookies with Santa" event!). Pictured here (with Santa's helpers, Carolyn & Guy Smoljan and Linda McGovern with choir director Pat Keaveney at the left) are singers:

    Thanks and blessings for a wonderful 2019 to these great kids and their families.
