PRAYERS FOR OUR PRE-CANA COUPLES

On Sat., June 2, 2018, the Pre-Cana team jointly sponsored by St. Joseph’s and Our Lady of Lourdes Parishes will be hosting 25 engaged couples for an all-day Pre-Cana marriage preparation session at Our Lady of Lourdes. Slips with the names of the couples are in baskets at the doors of the church. We ask you to take home the names of one or more couples and pray for them leading up to their Pre-Cana in two weeks.

Memorial

The Bread and Wine offering this week is for Alex Dominguez, gift of the Cornerstone Sisters.

Volunteers Needed

Saint Barnabas Medical Center Pastoral Care Department

At Saint Barnabas Medical Center, we realize that spiritual/emotional support of patients is a vital factor in more positive medical outcomes. The Pastoral Care Department is glad to participate in the healing process of our patients. Currently, we are seven chaplains and 60 trained Pastoral Care volunteers. The job of a Pastoral Care Volunteer involves visiting patients at their bedside, being a supportive presence, committing to one weekday morning a week and generating referrals to our staff of seven chaplains. No formal training required. To apply, please call Rev. Thomas Craig at Saint Barnabas Medical at 973-322-5015.

“A time for sorrow….”

Please pray for those who have died, especially Alex Dominguez, Rocco Scura, Kathleen Tracy, Patrick Zente and the beloved deceased of our parish.
