Ministries

Social Concerns


Visitation of the Sick

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion not only serve at Mass, they also bring Holy Communion to those unable to come to the liturgy because of age or illness. Besides bringing the Lord to those confined to home or health care facilities, they also bring the care and concern of the parish to those they visit.

Please call the parish office/rectory at 201-261-0148 to arrange a visit.


Prayer Shawl Ministry

Those involved in this ministry knit, crochet, and fringe prayer shawls that are given as gifts to those who are sick, suffering, or losing hope for various reasons. The shawls represent the prayers, love, care, and concern of the parish community for those who may be losing hope.


Bereavement Support


Separated/Divorced Support


Food Drives

Three times a year the parish sponsors a Food Drive during which canned food is collected. This food is distributed to food pantries in the northern New Jersey which assist the hungry and the hurting. Some of the food is also given to Resurrection Parish in Jersey City with whom we have a special connection.


Respect Life

Those involved in this ministry work to promote respect and reverence for human life from the moment of its conception to the moment of natural death. Human life is not ours to be used as we judge, but rather, life is a gift from God placed into our keeping for a period of time.

Those who give their time and talent to this ministry support NJ Right to Life and New Hope, an organization that helps expectant mothers. They also seek to increase consciousness and awareness among parish members of issues related to life.
