WORLD DAY FOR CONSECRATED LIFE

  • Google Calendar ICS

Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, 11 a.m. Mass at the

Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart, Newark

In 1997, Pope Saint John Paul II instituted a day of prayer to celebrate women and men in consecrated life. Since then the universal Church celebrates World Day for Consecrated Life on February 2, the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord. This Feast is also known as Candlemas Day – the day on which candles are blessed, symbolizing Christ who is the light of the world. So, too, are those in consecrated life called to reflect the light of Jesus Christ to all people.

Please join with our Cardinal, Joseph W. Tobin CSsR and the Church of Newark at an 11 a.m. Mass in the Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019, to celebrate those in consecrated life and in particular those Sisters, Brothers and Priests who are celebrating their anniversaries this year. This invitation is extended in a special way to the members of every parish as a means of supporting and thanking the consecrated men and women of our Archdiocese for their selfless gift of service to our local church.

BLUE CHRISTMAS SERVICE

Friday, Dec. 21, 2018 at 7:30 p.m.

Church of the Holy Trinity, Westfield, N.J.

The Christmas Season can be a sad time for some. The longest night of the year, the winter solstice, brings great darkness to earth. As the days grow shorter, we feel the darkness growing deeper around us. We need the warmth of a loving community gathered in prayer that points to God’s presence for those who mourn the death of a loved one, who struggle with financial concerns and unemployment, with physical or mental health issues, with cancer and depression, who wrestle with addictions, who are victims of violence, those with broken relationships, who are hungry, homeless and doubtful.

The Blue Christmas Service is an evening of prayer, scripture and music reminding all that the Word of God comes to shine light into our darkness. Everyone, regardless of church background (or lack of it), is welcome. Light refreshments will be served following. The Church of the Holy Trinity is located at 512 Westfield Avenue, Westfield.
