Rectory Roof
Replacement Fund


I am so grateful for the kindness of our parish family! Thanks to your incredible generosity, $33,020 was raised to cover the cost of replacing the rectory roof! This gift is especially heartwarming given that so many of us are on a tight budget these days. I am so incredibly proud of, and humbled by, the way our parish family always comes together to support the needs of Saint Mary’s. Thank you so very much to all of you!

Sincerely,
Fr. Dennis

Lighting Hearts on Fire
Diocesan Marian Consecration Preparation Year

Our Lady of Guadalupe

This past December 12, the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe, Bishop James F. Checchio launched a year of spiritual preparation for the consecration of the Diocese of Metuchen to Our Lady of Guadalupe with Evening Prayer. The purpose of this consecration is to invoke Our Lady of Guadalupe’s (the Patroness of the Americas) aid for our diocese, so that we can be spiritually renewed and equipped to live out our call to evangelize more faithfully. For more information, please visit: lightingheartsonfire.org.

In keeping with Bishop Checchio’s consecration of our diocese to Our Lady of Guadalupe, you will notice sign-up sheets in the back of the church for families to pray together and prepare for the consecration by hosting a “travelling kit” (containing an image of Our Lady of Guadalupe) in their homes for one week (Sunday through Saturday). Let us pray for the spiritual renewal of our diocese!
