BULLETIN
Bulletin, February 16, 2020

February Calendar

“He called them, and immediately they left their boat and their father and followed Him.”    Matthew 4:22

Just as Jesus called the first apostles, He calls each of us to follow Him, too.  Not everyone is called to leave their business or family behind, but we are expected to put God first in everything.  Everything from our time in daily prayer, our talent in participating in one of our parish ministries and our treasure to support the financial needs of our parish mission.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to Our Parish

Blessed are they who follow the law of the Lord! ~ Psalm 119

How to Report Sexual Abuse

If you were sexually abused by a member of the clergy or anyone representing the Catholic Church, you are encouraged to report that abuse by contacting the Diocesan Response Officer at (908) 930-4558 (24 hours/7 days a week).  For more information on how to report abuse, please visit our diocesan website: https://diometuchen.org/report-a-suspected-abuse.

The deadline for the submission of all claims has been extended until February 15.  Those survivors, who, as minors, were the victim of clergy sexual abuse and who now wish to pursue a claim through the IVCP, can begin the claims process by going to www.NJdiocesesIVCP.com.

The IVCP operates independently of the Diocese or any church-affiliated institution and the administrators of the IVCP have complete autonomy to determine the eligibility of a claim with the guidelines of the established Protocol.  The amount of compensation for those who make a claim will be independently determined by the IVCP administrators.  All victims – no matter when the abuse occurred – are eligible to participate, and all matters will be handled confidentially.  Victims of clergy sexual abuse of a minor can begin the process of utilizing the program by going to www.njdiocesesivcp.com and reviewing the protocol for submitting a claim.

Anyone who is a survivor of sexual abuse by a priest or deacon of the Diocese is encouraged to participate in the IVCP.
