With the arrival of autumn, I’d like to invite you to join Faith
Direct, our parish’s electronic giving program. Our to-do lists
can get lengthy during this season, but Faith Direct’s eGiving
program will give you one less thing to remember each
week—no more envelopes to find before you go to Mass.
Visit www.faithdirect.net and use our church code: NJ727
Thank you for your continued support of our parish Family!
God Bless you,
Fr. Thomas Walsh

Spirit of St. Vincent
[St. Vincent’s] contemplation of God’s love overflowed
into practical love for the poor. He encourages his followers:
“Let us all give ourselves completely to the practice of prayer, since it is by it that all good things come
to us. If we persevere, it is thanks to prayer. If we succeed
in our employments, it is thanks to prayer. If we do
not fall into sin, it is thanks to prayer. If we remain in
charity and if we are saved, all that happens is thanks to
God and thanks to prayer. Just as God refuses nothing to
prayer, so also He grants almost nothing without prayer.”
(R. Maloney, He Hears the Cry of the Poor, p. 98)
