    “Chrism Mass in July”

    We congratulate our new bishop as he celebrated his first “Chrism Mass

    in July” this past Wednesday evening at the Cathedral of Saint

    John the Baptist in Paterson.

    Although there was a small crowd of priests, deacons, seminarians, religious and laity, it was a great

    start of his legacy as the 8th Bishop of the Diocese of Paterson.

    The Bishop highlighted the need to pray for the “wounded army” of

    priests who serve the diocese and also focused on how the Church

    needs to be present, listening to those who have been affected by the clergy abuse scandal. Bravo Bishop!!

    Ad multos annos!

    The Parish Center Offices are open Monday-Friday from 9:00am-12:00pm. We can be reached at: 973-383-1985

  • What will become our new “normal?”

    Over the past several months, many people have emailed and written to me, reminding me of their support (both prayerfully and financially) during this global epidemic. I think it deserves repeating; again and again, I am truly in awe of the generosity of so many people. Thank you!

    I have also received correspondence concerning the fear and anguish people are experiencing in losing what they knew as “normal” in their lives and in our local church of Saint Joseph. “It doesn’t feel warm and friendly coming anymore.” “What happened to our parish family?” “Will we ever return to ‘normal’ again?” To which I can only say; we will never return to what we had because it is in the past. Still, what we will create in the future (I believe) will be something different and my hope and prayer is, something better.

    These past few weeks, we have heard the parables of Jesus using the imagery of the soil and the seeds. To take this motif a step further, it seems like someone has uprooted our grain of good deeds and faith and not only planted weeds, but poisonous and truly evil deeds as well.

    Violence in our streets has reached epidemic proportions. Damage to property, stores, civil and religious statues have been defaced and toppled, millions of dollars in destruction and the worst, the absolute worst, is the loss of innocent life which has been all accomplished in the name of “progress?” I think not.

    As always, I am a hopeful realist for our future. I continually believe that it is always darkest before the dawn. That like many people who need to “hit bottom” before getting clean and sober, I believe it is the same for society as well. Unfortunately, watching our nation “hit bottom” is not a pleasant thing to endure or witness.

    The same is true for our Church as well. It seems being separated from The Most Blessed Sacrament at daily Mass for eighty-eight days may have been “rock bottom” for many (at least it was for me). Now, seeing our church half empty makes me genuinely sad as well. Nonetheless, I truly realize, understand, and respect the fear that so many people still have about the virus and how it is transmitted. Still, little
