ST. CATHERINE'S CHURCH AND PARISH OFFICES ARE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE, DUE TO COVID-19 AND REGULATIONS SET FORTH BY THE DIOCESE OF TRENTON
PLEASE TAKE A MOMENT TO READ A MESSAGE FROM FR. DAN
My dear Parishioners,
These are trying days we find ourselves in. Our Christian response must be based in Holy Scripture.
'If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.'
Let use this time to beg the mercy of God upon our land, and forgive the sins we, as a nation, have committed, and pray and do penance for the conversion of poor sinners.
During this time I am so grateful to so many parishioners who have stopped by the Rectory, or dropped in the collection box their weekly Offerings. May God richly bless you for your sacrificial gift.
Even though public Mass is suspended, the financial needs of the Parish still press upon us.
Lastly, Mass is offered every day on our face book page, and all the reserved intentions are being satisfied. We are daily meeting the needs of the sick, and ministering to the needy in our community. On Fri and Sat evening, and Sunday morning, during the stated hours. I am available for Confession.
Please remember every day that the great Lenten fast continues, and please say the Holy Rosay every day.
God bless, your friend and pastor,
