Parish News and Information

Campaign Corner Update: January -- A big milestone reached!

Thank you, parishioners and friends of our parish, who have helped us achieve a significant milestone in our Church expansion project.

Together, you have contributed $1,026,000.

  • 295 parishioners have donated $922,000
  • 24 non parishioners contributors have donated $104,000
In recognition of this amazing effort, we listed every contribution in last weekend's bulletin. This milestone merits some reflection on our continuing needs.
  • Nearly 46% of our parish families who consider themselves active have chosen not to participate, at any level, in our project.
  • Based on the current construction schedule, all invoices from the contractors are expected to arrive prior to the end of the campaign. We feel compelled to renew our many appeals to all parishioners to assist in this critical effort:
    • For parishioners who have not begun making payments, please do so.
    • If your pledge payments are behind schedule, please work to be current.
    • If possible, please accelerate your payment schedule.For those who have not made a pledge, please reconsider your initial decision and support the parish with a new pledge.
  • Remember, every dollar raised prior to the application for the Diocesan loan will save a dollar plus interest for years to come.
Finally, we are looking for a small group of parishioners (2-4) who would be willing to underwrite the $16,000.00 cost of placing the acoustical partitions between the meeting rooms in the undercroft. Current thinking is that the initial cost would be quickly offset by the cost of heating and air-conditioning the entire Church for weekday Masses, which are normally lightly attended. Having these partitions available will facilitate the creation of a small chapel in the undercroft which will be air conditioned during the summer months, and heated during the winter months, for normal, administrative operations.

Please remember that while everyone has a vested interest in our church progress, for safety reasons everyone is prohibited from entering the premises during the active construction. No exceptions! Safety is a priority and must be respected at all times.

Rosary Society sends thanks for Giving Tree success

The St. Catherine's Rosary Society passed along this note of thanks to everyone who participated in their annual Giving Tree drive.

Thank you for your abundant donations to the 2017 Giving Tree! As a parish, we have collected over $16,365 in material gifts, gift cards, and checks.

Through your generosity, our parish was able to provide many items, including: warm coats, boots, hats, gloves, sleepwear, clothes, diapers, toys, baby toiletries, adult shampoos, diaper cream, laundry detergent, baby crib items, baby outfits, Onesies, and gift cards for the single-Mom families served by the Friendship Center for New Beginnings in Flemington.

Your generous donations of checks and gift cards will also benefit families in our parish and the Family Promise ministry.

May God bless you for your kindness and outpouring of love.

New galleries show more progress on church expansion

This week, we've added two new photo galleries of the work being done on the church expansion:

Gallery Three shows the footprint of the new addition clearly taking shape, while Gallery Four sees the laying of the new foundation starting. The slideshows can also be seen in the parish center narthex before and after weekend Masses.

Galleries One and Two are still available as well.
