September 4 Updates


  • HELP WANTED: Catechist for sixth grade. If you have a love for God and for children please consider being a mentor for our sixth graders. They are a delightful group of young people and the text and teacher's manual are user-friendly. Classes are Tuesday evening from 7:00 - 8:15. Classes start September 18 so we are under the gun. If you think you can help, please contact the Religious Ed. Office at 973-669-8331 for more information.

  • Classes will start Sunday, September 18 with the 9:15 Mass where we will bless our students and their backpacks. Following the Mass, we will proceed to the Parish Center for some important information as well as a joint lesson for parents and children (as well as a chance to get to know each other over refreshments!) If you have not registered as yet, there is still time. Just call the office or simply come that Sunday.

  • If you and your child are new to the area or have a child entering first grade, please call the office (973-669-8331) for registration materials.

  • If you have a child of First Eucharist age (second grade) who attends Catholic school but you want the child to receive First Communion in St. Joseph's, please call the office for information.
