Respect Life

    Jesus, Mary and Joseph I love you very much.  I beg you to spare the life of the unborn baby that I have spiritually adopted who is in danger of abortion.'  

    Saint Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church and Guardian of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus, the Son of God whom she carried in her Immaculate womb: intercede for us, we pray, that all recourse to abortion might cease in our nation and our world.  As your cared for Mother and Child, care for all women who bear the gift of life in their womb.  May no harm ever endanger them and may no choice ever threaten the blessing of human life that God has created within. Guard them with your loving protection, at every moment, until His will has been fulfilled.  St. Joseph, spouse of Mary and foster father of the Lord, help us build a culture of life that yields a civilization of love among us.  

    Say the “Our Father,” the “Hail Mary” and the “Glory be” after the novena prayer.

  • NJ Reproductive Freedom Act (RFA)

    The nature of this bill is extreme and horrific.  It was introduced in Trenton in October and would further expand access to abortion in NJ. The NJ Catholic Conference (NJCC), which represents all of the NJ Bishops, is developing some virtual educational materials to increase our knowledge and awareness of this bill, which will be placed on a dedicated page on the NJCC website. This webpage currently contains the NJ Bishop’s letter of opposition, a video webinar outlining the main points of this legislation, a printable sheet of those key points, and some other printable statements and resources. Link to the NJCC’s webpage for current information about NJ’s RFA:

    Bishop O’Connell encourages our Parish family to learn about this bill now and to begin to organize pther parishioners to take action, should this bill start to move in Trenton.  As of now, it looks as though RFA will not be acted upon during the current legislative session. 

    The NJCC and our NJ Dioceses will hold off on encouraging protests and action alerts until they are advised if/when there is indication that the bill will start moving in Trenton.
