This weekend OLMC, like all parishes in the Archdiocese of Newark will participate in the Sharing God’s Blessings Annual Appeal. This year’s theme is “One Body, One Mission.”
In his first letter to the Church in Corinth, the Apostle Paul shares deep insight into the great gift given to us in baptism. As Christians, we are members of Christ’s body. Though many and each unique, our unity is rooted in the mission entrusted to the Church by Jesus Christ – namely, to proclaim the Good News, to pass on the faith to the next generation through formation and the celebration of the sacraments, and to care for the poor and most vulnerable.
As missionary disciples, we seek to answer the Lord’s call each day. Christian stewardship is one way we can respond to the Lord’s call, as well as, assist our Church in serving those entrusted to its physical and spiritual care. Through the Sharing God’s Blessings Annual Appeal, the Catholic community of the Archdiocese of Newark comes together in support of ministries and programs which provide social, educational, and spiritual support throughout Essex, Bergen, Hudson, and Union counties.
We hope you will join us again in support of this important effort.Will you prayerfully consider making a gift to the Sharing God’s Blessings Annual Appeal?
The practice of Catholic stewardship puts our faith into action. God has blessed each of us in a variety of ways. We recognize that everyone has unique life circumstances. Only you can decide what gift is right for you, your family, and your budget. To make a gift please fill out an envelope in the pews during Mass or reference your envelope or Faith Direct web page.
