On the advice of public health officials, Bishop David M. O’Connell has mandated the closing of all Churches and chapels in the Diocese of Trenton to the public, effective at noon today, April 1, 2020, until further notice. We encourage you to participate in the livestream Mass that is offered every morning at 9:00 AM, the Saturday Vigil Mass at 5:00 PM and the Sunday morning Mass at 11:30 AM. Stations of the Cross will continue to be livestreamed on Friday at 7:00 PM and Holy Hour on Monday from 4:00 to 5:00 PM. CONFESSIONS WILL NOT BE HEARD. Out of an abundance of caution and for your own health and safety, we ask your cooperation and understanding.
Today is the 15th Anniversary of the death of Saint John Paul II (April 2, 2005). Pope Francis said, "In these difficult times that we are living, I encourage you to trust in Divine Mercy and in Saint John Paul II's intercession."
Let us continue to pray for the sick, hospitalized, those who have died, as well as all healthcare professionals, doctors, nurses, scientists, and first responders. Let us implore the intercession of Our Blessed Mother Mary, Mother of Divine Mercy and Health of the Sick, to intercede for us and to bring a quick end to this pandemic.
May God bless you and your family. Stay well and Keep Safe. We are praying for you!
Saint John Paul II, pray for us! Mary, Mother of Divine Mercy, pray for us!
Father Ed and Father Chris
