Jan. 26, 2019 – From the Desk of the Pastor

Dear Parishioners of Our Lady of Mercy:

Fr. Marty JacintoGreetings in the name of Our Lord Jesus Christ!

It is such a great honor and joy to have our Archbishop, Cardinal Joseph Tobin, visiting us this weekend. Join me in thanking him in whatever way we could and keep him in our prayers. Being a shepherd of this big Archdiocese is never easy. Never stop supporting him.

I have good news for you… this past week I have received a check from Cardinal Tobin… it is a check of $1,875.50 as a rebate from the 2018 Sharing God’s Blessings Appeal! That means we have achieved last year’s goal of $34,769.00 and have gone over. Thank you so much for your generosity. You did not only help the Archdiocese, but you also helped our parish. I hope and pray that this year we will do better. Our goal this year is $36,033.00. Please try your best to share your stewardship of treasure to the mission of the Archdiocese of Newark.

Another thing, as you well know, we try our best to take care of each one’s spiritual growth. I encourage you to make extra effort to come to our parish mission. Friar Johnpaul Cafiero, OFM, is so kind to lend his time to lead us in prayer and nourish us with spiritual food through reflecting on God’s Words. And this year’s mission theme is: “Come to the mountain: an invitation to meet God.” It is a wonderful opportunity to sit back, relax and get immersed into God’s words of love and mercy. Please avail it and spread the word, inviting others to come.

Our parish annual financial report is now available for you. I thank you all for your unending support. As you will see, we are doing better. I also want to thank some of you who support us anonymously for the upkeep of our place. You know who you are. We are so blessed to have you and please always know that you are greatly appreciated.

God bless you all!

+Father Marty
